Math Mentors

Calling all family members of Montclair Students! This year we are excited to add Montclair Math Mentors to our daily schedule in addition to Watch Dogs. Montclair Math Mentors ARE open to any adult family member of a Montclair student. Mentors would be assisting students across grade levels with Math based activities. Mentors would also be involved in helping in the library, workroom, and lunch room.

Ideally, we would like to have a math mentor at Montclair from 8:30-3:30 every day. However, please let us know if you would like to come for a 1/2 day too!

Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Please sign up at least ONE week in advance. Thank you!

Please use the following link to sign up for September Math Mentors. Click here .

We will be putting the link for Math Mentors in the newsletter every month.

Health Screenings

This year, health screenings will take place on September 26th and will continue through the month of October. We will screen for vision, weight, hearing, and oral status per State Mandate. You will be informed if you student did NOT pass this routine screening. If you have any questions, or do not want your student to be screened, please contact the health room at 402-715-1296.
