Montemalaga PTA Newsletter - September



I hope everyone had a fun filled summer and was able to relax, recharge, and enjoy time together! Welcome to all the of the new families joining us this year- we cant wait to meet you, and show you what makes Montemalaga special! 

Coming off of the last school year we recognize the importance of coming together as a community and continuing to remain flexible while we navigate the school year. Our goal is to make this year the best year for the kids and continue to provide important connections for families. From events, to student council, technology support, and Chromebooks, PTA is stepping up to make this year as successful as we can! 

I encourage you to join the PTA so you can receive our monthly newsletters filled with events and information that truly make this school a community, it also allows you to obtain directory information for families at school, and participate in meetings. We will meet virtually (for now!) the second Tuesday of every month and welcome all PTA members to contribute with discussion and decisions. 

As a PTA we look forward to working together to make this an awesome year!!

Erin Vancura
PTA President

After September you will only receive the newsletter if you join the PTA.
The principal's memo will be sent weekly to the whole school.  

Hello, Montemalaga families. Welcome back to school!

Once again, I cannot share how excited our teachers and staff are to get the new school year started. In addition, I appreciate all the lovely emails and visits from families during the summer. Montemlaga truly is a beautiful and unique place that has grown near and dear to my heart. The school is fortunate to have such sincere support from the Montemalaga community. After meeting with many of you last year, I know the importance of keeping our Montemalaga community safe.

The teachers, staff, and I will be working hard throughout the school year to build and sustain a strong connection with our students. This year, like every year, is essential for each student, and we will make sure to keep them connected to our school. We will continue many of our programs, such as the Student Council, student assemblies, spirit days, and much more.

The key to this year will be communicating and working together. We will keep you updated through communications, posting fun events on our social media and website. I am always available, so please reach out to me at any time.

Our EAGLES soar together!!!
