Happy Holidays from Your PTA Representatives!
Holiday Gifts for Montlake Teachers & Staff

As we move into the holiday season, we have set up a way for the Montlake community to contribute to holiday gifts for the entire Montlake staff!

In the past, the community has very generously collected funds within each classroom and purchased gifts for the classroom teachers. We want to offer an option that will create funds that can be divided equally for the entire staff. If you would like to contribute, please follow the link below.

Please donate BY TUESDAY, DECEMBER 18th. It takes a few days to process the gifts so it will be difficult to take late donations.

The Outreach team will then purchase gift cards with the funds and distribute them the last day of school before Winter Break.

For those who prefer to donate by check, I will put a folder in the front office starting on Monday, December 3rd.
