Big picture

Each year, for the National Fire Prevention Week, the Montgomery Fire Department visits Montgomery Elementary school to talk to the students about fire safety. In addition to the normal Fire Prevention Week programs offered to each grade level, the fire department also offers a fire safety poster contest for our kindergarten, first, and second grade classes. A winner from each class and a grand prize winner from each grade was selected. The grand prize winners this year were Stella Busdeker, Katherine Thomas and Lochman Hardison.

PBIS/BULLYING SURVEY click here

Please take a moment to fill out the survey attached. We want your feedback on how we are doing at Montgomery Elementary!

Dear Families,


The week of November 12th the Aviation Station will return to our school! We will be in need of lots of cardboard for the project. Please consider saving and sending in a few boxes to school. We can use any kind of cardboard, from cereal boxes to Amazon Prime boxes!


Thank you for your help!


NEWS FROM THE MEDIA CENTER

A big Montgomery Media Center THANK YOU to all of the teachers, volunteers, and students that helped make the Joseph Beth Book Fair one of the best ever. Remember, 20% of all profits come right back to our media center. That money is used to purchase new books for our library!


A couple of things to keep in mind:

  • Hang on to your books after you have read them. We will have our annual “Book Swap” in April during our school Earth Week celebration. This is a great time for students to exchange books that they have purchased from this fall’s book fair and get some new titles.

  • We will be hosting a Scholastic Book Fair in May. Just in time for some new books for summer reading.


“There is no such thing as a child who hates to read; there are only children who have not found the right book.”

Frank Serafini


PTO - HASSLE FREE MONEY

HASSLE FREE MONEY for Montgomery Elementary

Did you know that the school has partnered with businesses in the community to have those businesses donate money directly to Montgomery Elementary for the everyday items you purchase?

Here’s how it works:

Register your Kroger Plus Card – When you enroll your Kroger Plus card in the Kroger Community Rewards Program on www.krogercommunityrewards.com and select Montgomery Elementary PTO (VP832), you will automatically earn dollars for the school based on the purchases you are already making.

(Anyone with a Kroger Plus card can do this….don’t forget to ask friends and family members if they would like to help Montgomery Elementary earn money.)

Collect Pipkin’s Receipts - Save your Pipkin’s receipts. Send the receipts to school in a marked envelope to your homeroom teacher. Pipkins will donate a percentage of those receipts directly to the PTO!

Collect Box Tops - Box Tops for Education can be found on various household products. Look for the symbol, and save Box Tops or visit: www.boxtops4education.com/earn/participating-products . Please begin clipping and mark your calendars for our Fall Box Top collection, through October 5-26. Students should turn Box Tops in to their homeroom teacher. The class that collects the most Box Tops will get a Pajama Day and special treat.

Remember: Your child may also ask other special people in their lives (grandparents, aunts/uncles, friends/neighbors) to clip/save their Box Tops and Pipkin’s receipts for them too. This is a great way to boost their collection and an easy way for loved ones to support our school!
