PTA Update for the month of September 2019

Welcome back Montemalaga families! 

We hope you have had an amazing summer and were able to relax and have fun with your kids!  If you are new to Montemalaga, welcome!  Montemalaga is a very special school with dedicated and nurturing teachers, administrators and staff. 

Please take a moment to join the PTA.  As a PTA member you will be able to attend meetings, receive communications and of course get our monthly newsletter.  Our meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month at 9am in the library.  We are very excited for the 2019-2020 school year and look forward to seeing you around campus!
