The Montclair Fund for Educational Excellence (MFEE) – a fundraising and community connecting organization – is working with partners on a few initiatives to support schools, students and families this year. We know it feels like we’re launching into choppy waters, but with collective strategizing and coordinated action, together, we can build some life rafts to navigate these waters with greater confidence and support.
These are our preliminary initiatives:
• Create and sustain a small network of Community Learning Centers: full-time in-person supervision and remote learning support for our district’s most under-resourced elementary and middle school students.
• Build a Montclair-specific online hub for families to find other families who are interested in being part of small in-person groups for learning, socialization, enrichment, or child care.
• Curate and host parent and caregiver support sessions throughout the school year – topics will respond to the needs of our parent and caregiver community, such as supporting learning at home, managing stress for kids and parents, and boosting social connections.
We need your voice. Join us to hear what we’re exploring, provide feedback, and join others in small group discussions.
