Hello Montgomery Families,

It is officially planning time for the 2020-21 school year! I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. Please take a moment to fill out the Class Placement Form 2020-21. We want to know your thoughts and concerns about your child and this form allows us to keep all of the information organized. I am always happy to talk in person or on the phone but know I will also ask you to fill out the form! The form closes on March 23, 2020 at the end of the school day.
