*March 15 PTA Meeting Recap*
- We had a great meeting with an update from Courtney Baran-Huber with our garden committee. She told us about the amazing things her team has accomplished and future projects. Think pavers and tree stump chairs.
- We also discussed all of the upcoming events that are listed elsewhere in this newsletter.
- The Health & Wellness committee shared an update on age-appropriate sex education at CHB.
- We talked about the open positions on the 2022-23 PTA Exec board: co-president, co-vp’s, and committee chairs.
Speaking of committees, here is a list of *some* of them.
We’ll send more info later because we’re always looking for volunteers and co-chairs.
Message from the MFEE:
Dear Bullock families,
Non-English speaking parents and caregivers in Montclair care deeply about their children’s education, but they face barriers in schools and systems that operate almost entirely in English – and students face barriers accessing the education and fundamental resources to which they are entitled. The Montclair Public School District is working to address the needs of Montclair’s rapidly growing population of English Language Learners, but institutional change can take time, and our students need support now.
That’s where Navegadores come in. MFEE recruits and trains Spanish-speaking community members and matches them to individual families to provide one-on-one holistic support and to help families develop the knowledge and skills to navigate our schools.
Navegadores help with many things, based on what each familia needs and wants support with — everything from navigating the Genesis portal, to attending meetings with teachers and counselors, to connecting families to health, housing and food resources.
You Did It!
