MCES Weekly Top Five For Parents


A Message from Administration

Greetings Montclair Families,

The administration team would like to inform you of some changes that will be taking place around the county and at Montclair.

Today as students observe Remote Learning Day, we encourage families to take this opportunity to familiarize themselves with Canvas as well as Powerschool. Students should be working on asynchronous assignments to include resource classes.

Additionally, parents are encouraged to view the iStation Parent Portal listed in the Top 5 for parents. This is important information that parents will need to access as we continue to utilize the iStation assessment resource.

On November 14, CCS will host the CCS Virtual Choice Fair. The Choice Program application process for the 2021-2022 school year will open on November 16, 2020. The application can be accessed via the Family Dashboard.

Cumberland County Schools is proud to offer various Choice Programs tailored to meet students' diverse needs. Choice Programs are uniquely themed concepts implemented at select schools throughout the district. You can exercise your power of choice within CCS by learning more about the Choice Programs available to students and select a program that best matches your child’s interests and future goals.

Montclair's staff will be collecting food items from November 9th - 18th during the school lunch pick-up time (11:00-12:30). You may bring items to the school during these hours, and a staff member will be outside to receive. Feel free to drop items off at the front entrance door if needed between 8:00 am and 3:00 Monday through Friday. The food items collected will be distributed to less fortunate families before the Thanksgiving holiday. Thanks in advance for your kindness and generosity!

As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact Mrs. Powell or Mr.Gillespie, the school's administration team.

"None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful." – Mother Teresa.
