CHB Second-Grader Helped 110 Women Feel Beautiful!
Jayla Pitts, a second-grader at Charles H. Bullock School in Montclair, made Valentine’s Day bright for several women in the community who were going through tough times with her “Project Beautiful.” She collected hundreds of fragrance and toiletry items, donated as a result of her outreach to family, friends, and neighbors. She also received monetary donations, which she used to personally shop for hygiene and fragrance items that were ultimately provided in the gift bags. “It was important to her that she delivers her items right in time for Valentine’s Day so that [the] recipients know/feel that they are loved!” her mother, Raina Pitts, wrote in a message to Montclair Local. The project benefited the women of the Real House/BRAVE in Montclair, Cornerstone of the Salvation Army in Montclair, Circle of Life Shelter in Newark and Covenant House in Newark. In total, Project Beautiful donated 110 gift bags.

Montclair Public School District 101
The Montclair PTA Council (PTAC) is pleased to launch “Montclair Public School District 101”for parents, caregivers, and families. The guide consolidates some of the most critical information about the school district in one place, is easy to read, and provides links to other resources and documents. We anticipate this document will be revised and updated over time, and we look forward to your feedback.

Enrichment Center Needs
First, as many of you know, the MFEE, in collaboration with the Montclair Neighborhood Development Center and the Township, established a Community Enrichment Center at the Wally ChoiceCenter in Glenfield Park to provide free child care and remote-learning support to approximately 45 students from low-income families. But the low-income students and families participating in the program have additional need for health and hygiene supplies, academic supplies, winter wear, and books. And the center also needs additional volunteers to help organize the distribution of food from the district and from Toni’s Kitchen. Please see the attached pdf files for more details. I think this need speaks to the goals of the Health & Wellness Committee, as well as EAROG, Curriculum & Instruction, and Community Building. If you would like to volunteer or help in the recruitment and guidance of additional volunteers, as well as coordinating drives for donated supplies, please contact me and/or email@example.com.
