Please reach out to Mr. Gillespie about how you can sign up.

During this time, if you have any questions, a staff member will be available to answer questions for our parents.

We thank our parents for showing up and supporting our students during the District 5 Douglas Byrd Arts Expo. During this showcase, The students at Montclair Elementary School had their artwork displayed, and some of our students could perform. Montclair Elementary School received high praise for its performance. We want to shout out Mrs. Chambers and Mrs. Hill for their hard work coordinating that showcase.

Parents, we know our students are excited about Halloween; however, please be reminded that Monday, October 31st is still an instructional day.
