Hello Montclair Families,

I hope this message finds you well.  You may have noticed that Fox31 made a visit to Montclair this past week to highlight the work DPS and Montclair is doing to support newcomer families in Denver.  Click here to check out the story.  Montclair will be officially accepting students for our newcomer classrooms after Thanksgiving Break.  We are still looking to hire 1 more teacher for our Newcomer classroom. If you know anyone that may be interested please have them email Mr. Barks at

We are excited to host our first Monty’s Movie Night at Montclair this Thursday 11/16 at 6:00pm.  The featured film will be “Brother Bear” in celebration of Native American History Month.  This event offers free entry and we will be selling popcorn for $2.  We hope to see you there!
