Community Building



Montclare Children’s School is proud to have has an exceptionally strong, connected community. It is important for us to nurture that community throughout the year with various events hosted by our school. This spring, in addition to hosting our annual Town Hall meeting through Zoom, with over one hundred attendees, we have been offering a variety of virtual parenting workshops as well as a few social meet-ups. It has been a meaningful way to keep us connected and make us stronger during these unprecedented times.


Additionally, our extraordinarily dedicated and energetic Montclare Parent’s Association (MPA) orchestrates a number of community events throughout the year, bringing us together to support various charities and raising support for the Montclare Scholarship Fund. This spring, the MPA coordinated an exceptional virtual Book Fair, and later their annual Exmissions Fair which included both current and alum parents sharing their experiences about their ongoing schools, both private and public to our families who will be exploring their on-going school options in the fall.


More than ever, we need one another. #TogetherAtHome
