MARKER RECYCLING SUCCESS

The Montgomery homerooms collected an impressive 1,110 markers for recycling during the month of November! The winning class was….Ms. Hightower’s 1st grade! They collected 251 markers! Thank you to all the families who sent in used markers. If you still have worn-out markers sitting at home, don’t trash them - you can continue to send them in throughout the year. The challenge may be over, but marker recycling will be ongoing, with collection boxes in each homeroom, and a central collection station organized by Mrs. Carroll outside the art room. Thank you for helping us to be a little more green at Montgomery Elementary!

MORNING BOOSTERTHON GREETERS

A group of the Boosterthon Staff Members stopped by on Thursday morning to greet our students as they were unloading the buses and to spread a little holiday cheer.


As always, inspiring random acts of kindness in students!
