Montclair Schools 101, Transition to Elementary/Middle School – 4/14 @ 6:30pm or 8pm
Are you registering your child for elementary school next year? Do you have a 5th grader transitioning to middle school?
Since it’s not possible to visit the schools in the current environment, PTAC is doing the next best thing– we’re gathering all of the PTA Presidents in one (virtual) place to talk about their schools, the culture, the schedules, the vibes…. Note we cannot answer registration questions.
MPS Budget Process meeting recordings

MFEE FundRACER 4.0
We swore that the MFEE (Montclair Fund for Educational Excellence) Amazing FundRACER 3.0 would be our last, but after we’ve all been battling a global pandemic, we realized we had to offer an opportunity to test all those skills you’ve developed in quarantine WITH your quaranTEAMS! That’s right. The MFEE Amazing FundRACER 4.0: Clash of the Quaranteams is coming on Sunday May 23rd. Recruit 6 or less people (kids included!) to race around Montclair in a mini-version of the competition show The Amazing Race – minus the $1 million prize and the worldwide travel. This version is just as exciting and more impactful: a portion of the funds raised from this community-wide event will go to expanding MFEE’s work on race and equity in our community and schools. Sign-up your quaranteam TODAY; space is limited.* To learn more, visit https://bit.ly/mfeefundracer4_registration. (*MFEE will follow all Covid protocols including masks and social distancing. At no point will there be large gatherings, and teams will be able socially distanced during challenges. There will be a staggered start to control crowds, and there will be no in-person spectators.)

One of our favorite components (well, we really love them all) is the Career Panel. We have always had a wonderful group of parents/relatives/community members participate in this part. This year, we will have one career panel, consisting of 3-4 panelists, for each grade level. A live ZOOM meet will happen from 10:45 – 11:45 a.m.. If you are interested in serving on the panel, please complete the Google Form by March 26, 2021.
