Dear CHB Families,
2020-2021 has been an extraordinary year in so many ways. As a PTA, we have continued to provide amazing experiences for our kids. In order to continue providing our students and community with these enriching activities, we always need your time and volunteerism, but we also need your financial support. The Envelope Fundraiser will be our only fundraiser this year. Thank you for your support.
There are 250 envelopes ranging from $10 to $1000.
From the received donation submissions, we will draw a number of winners who will win some awesome CHB Spirit Wear!

Artist in Residence program that brings different movement, music, and visual arts experiences to each grade, often tying into the curriculum. This year our Kindergarteners enjoyed Drumming and Movement with Maya Milenovic Workman of MADLOM, our 1st and 5th graders will be learning through the Newark Museum of Art, 2nd graders composed amazing poetry with poet Anndee Hochman. Past programs have also created the amazing murals on our hall walls.
School Assemblies and Field Trips often bring learning and fun to our students on a regular basis. During virtual learning, our 3rd graders experienced a Weather Assembly with John Marshall and a tour of the Yogi Berra Museum. Normally, our 4th graders plan a camping tripand our 5th graders celebrate their achievements with a moving up ceremony.
In our Secret Garden, we grow food for our kitchen and community and provide gardening experiences that tie into our children’s learning. We are working to expand this and our outdoor learning experiences in years to come.
Visiting Authors provide amazing connections between our students and authors, and many times local Montclair gems. This year we hosted Grace Lin, Tara Lazar, Sayantani Dasgupta, Marty Kelley, Joyce Hesselberth, Jerry Pellotta, and Barbara O’Connor.
We are so excited to meet again in person at our annual Eco-Fair where we learn and highlight all the amazing projects our students have been working on and our parent volunteers demonstrate ways to promote environmental sustainability.
PTA also provides support to our families in need through Thanksgiving Meals and Holiday Giving shows our appreciation to teachers during our Cookie Banquet and Teacher Appreciation Week and shows community support in and out of our school building during Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “DAY ON” of Service. We have helped parents and caregivers with evening Workshops run by esteemed psychologists and social workers.
And of course, Teachers College Reading and Writing Program provides support, learning, and increased achievement markers for our students and teachers.
