Welcome Montvale families!
The Montvale PTO is a community of dedicated volunteers who strive to enhance the learning experiences for students at Memorial Elementary School and Fieldstone Middle School. With community support, we continually raise funds to create opportunities for curriculum, building and social emotional enhancements that will directly benefit our children, and strengthen our school community.
Through volunteering and fundraising, the Montvale PTO donates $20,000 annually for school curriculum enhancements. Montvale PTO also makes contributions towards the 4th and 8th grade milestone celebrations, Fieldstone Middle Schools 3 R's Day (Respect, Reflect, and Remembrance,) Field Days, and awards $1,000 in an annual scholarship for a graduating Montvale senior at Pascack Hills High School. We also work to enhance our school community in the form of staff appreciation events, the traditional Memorial Ice Cream Social, Spring Fling at Fieldstone, and the popular Fieldstone Friday Nights. We also facilitate many events throughout the year to strengthen the learning experience of Montvale students including; PTO Scholastic Book Fairs, International Day, Memorial School Yearbooks, Memorial School Holiday Boutique, and holiday celebrations and special event treats for students. We also offer Montvale students hot lunches twice a week with the popular Montvale PTO Hot Lunch Program.
During the 2021-2022 school year, we offered $20,000 to support curriculum enhancements at Memorial Elementary School and Fieldstone Middle School. These enhancements included 6 author visits for students at both schools, a Character Education assembly at Memorial School, and a building enhancement at Fieldstone Middle School. We were happy to provide new Fieldstone Falcon signage for every classroom thoroughout the middle school building, which will make changing classes easier on our new middle school students. We were also thrilled to gift both Memorial and Fieldstone schools with brand new recess equipment, provide snacks for Field Day, and support our 4th and 8th grade class classes with planning and financial contributions for their milestone celebrations.
For the 2022-2023 school year, we have continued the tradition of offering $20,000 to our schools to support curriculum enhancements, including assemblies and author visits. We also made a donation of $12,000 to support this year's 3 R's Day at Fieldstone. We contributed $500 to the Memorial Health Office for clothing items for spills and accidents. We have pledged $2,000 to support our 8th graders as they celebrate their 8th Grade Graduation Events, as they leave Montvale Schools. We pledged $1,500 to support the 4th Grade Picnic, as they transition to Fieldstone Middle School, and welcomed our newest community members, our kindergarteners, with copies of "Kindergarten, Here I Come," at the Kindergarten Orientation! We also purchased a brand new Fieldstone Falcon mascot, for a social-emotional enhancement at Fieldstone, and most recently we donated $25,000 towards the purchase of a brand new electronic school sign at Memorial School! We know this enhancement will strengthen communication in our community, for years to come.
We continue to brainstorm and create new ways to contribute to our schools to enhance the academic and social-emotional development of Montvale students, including our Sunshine Committee, 1st Annual Harvest Hallways and 1st Annual Fieldstone Falcon Class Fundraiser Penny Wars. We are always planning for ways we can enhance the experience for our Montvale students and we welcome new ideas from our amazing community, and more fantastic contributions are on the horizon.
It takes many generous volunteers, an incredible staff, and a supportive community to make our schools great. We would love for you to join the Montvale PTO, to share your talents, make new friends, and support our amazing schools! Please feel free to reach out to us to join in making a positive impact in Montvale Schools!
Your involvement makes a difference!
We may be a small town, but we have a big heart!
