Calling all Volunteers... We Need YOU!
Become a Montclair Roadrunner volunteer for the 2012-2013 school year! There are many opportunities for you to participate at Montclair, including PTA activities, helping classroom teachers, chaperoning field trips, etc. Whether you can donate one hour or one-hundred hours, we have a spot for you! However, for the safety of our students, all volunteers are required to fill out a volunteer form and background check every year before volunteering. Because we have so many involved parents, we encourage everyone to fill out the necessary forms, even if you do not anticipate volunteering on a regular basis. A large part of our school's success can be attributed to our outstanding volunteers. Volunteer information and forms can be found on the district website. Thank you for your support!
