Hello Montclair Families,

I hope this message finds you well.  I want to take a moment and say THANK YOU to each of you for your support of Montclair School of Academics and Enrichment!  Your continued partnership is vital to the success of your student(s) and the Montclair Community!  We are truly grateful for each of you.  

November 20th-24th is Fall Break and I hope you are able to spend some quality time as a family and do things that bring you joy.  We look forward to seeing students back in the building on Monday 11/27/23!

Updates and Reminders:

  • School Attendance is Vital to your Student(s) Success!  
    • Did you know? Building Habits around school will lead to an increase in attendance and academic success.  Set a standard bed time and wake up time each day.  Let children choose what clothes they will be wearing the next day. Routines make everyone feel in control, and that’s a good feeling!  
    • Montclair’s School Attendance Goal for the 23-24 School Year: 91.4% average daily attendance (3% increase from 22-23 School Year)
    • Montclair’s Current School Attendance Rate: 89.45% average daily attendance
    • November Classroom Attendance Reward:  The class with the highest average daily attendance will be receiving a class party of their choice!
  • Montclair Early Release Survey: Montclair is looking at adding an additional early release day next year moving from 1 day a month to 2 days a month.  This will allow time for teachers and staff to gain some extra valuable time to plan and engage in professional development.  Free programming will be available on early release days for families that need this support.  We are seeking your input on this idea as we plan for next school year. Please complete the following one question survey.   
  • Chopper Topper is Coming to Montclair:  Free dental care for students is coming to Montclair starting 11/27.  Please checkout this flier for more information or call the office at 720-424-5380.

    • ​​​​​​​November 20th-24th- Fall Break
    • December 7th- Early Release at 1:10pm
