Community Partnership Team Award: Montclair Elementary School: The Spirit of Community Grows
At Montclair Elementary School, the team's goal is to provide opportunities for both cultural and global growth, as well as information about social emotional learning for all students and families. Through the many partnerships the school welcomes this goal is made possible. The Children's Program recently hosted a parent meeting about Social Emotional Learning and in the near future, the Dougy Center will host a panel discussion.
Residents of the Courtyard Village Retirement community support literacy growth through reading with 1st graders and working one-on-one with students. Holy Trinity Church partners with the school to support their new food pantry as well as a new program for transitioning families in the community. Student mentors from Oregon Episcopal School join Montclair students for service-learning days, mentor 1st graders and co-host Author-Share events. Montclair has also been selected for Comcast Cares Day 2019, which takes place this Saturday, to support the school community and surrounding neighborhoods.
