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 and Spring Fling at Fieldstone, and Fieldstone Friday Nights. We facilitate many events throughout the year, including; Book Fairs, International Day, Memorial School Yearbooks, Memorial School Holiday Boutique, and holiday celebrations. We also offer Montvale students hot lunches twice a week with the 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 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 3 events scheduled for October, and 1 for November. We also made a donation of $12,000 to support this year's 3 R's Day at Fieldstone. We continue to brainstorm and create new ways to contribute to our schools to enhance the academic and social-emotional development of Montvale students, and are excited to launch our 1st Annual Harvest Hallways. We are excited for this school year, and are always planning for ways we can enhance the experience for our Montvale students.
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!
Your involvement makes a difference!
We may be a small town, but we have a big heart!
