Kinder/New Family Playdate
A few weeks before school starts the PTA organizes a play date in the park for all our new incoming families. Join us to meet fellow new kinders, transfer students and their families as well as learn about Monta Loma from parents who have been at the school for years.
Lemonade Social and Class List Posting
Join us a few days before school starts to reconnect with classmates and meet new friends over lemonade and cookies as you learn who your teacher is for the upcoming school year!
Monta Loma holds a Fall Festival each year to raise donations and build community. This is a fun and highly anticipated event with a carnival type atmosphere. We offer a selection of easy to eat foods and classic fair treats like popcorn and cotton candy. Each classroom provides a fun game set up where anyone can participate and win a small prize. Tickets for the games and food are available to purchase on site with cash or credit card. Contact your student’s teacher to see how you can help with game set up or the PTA to volunteer for this exciting, memory making school fundraiser.
Monta Loma’s biggest fundraiser of the year is our Walk-A-Thon, generally held each spring. Kids and staff walk laps in the field to music while volunteers sell tickets, amazing food, drinks and treats to families and local community members alike. We hold a raffle with a wide selection of donated items from gift certificates to local eateries, fun activities with staff members, to sport and art classes, to museum trips and more. Students are encouraged to solicit donations from family and friends in sponsorship of their participation, not based upon lap count. We provide a convenient and secure online option, Walkstarter, for student fundraising as well as traditional cash/check collection. Monta Loma PTA accepts cash and credit cards at all of our fundraiser events so come prepared to eat, play and support your child and our school. This event is always a huge success and so much fun thanks to our fabulous community coming together and is not to be missed!
The Walk A Thon at Monta Loma school relies heavily on donations from local stores and our diverse family community. In the past we’ve had families prepare favorite delicious dishes from quesadilla and pupusa platters to barbecue, lumpia and even homemade inari to sell at the event to help raise money for various school needs. We encourage anyone who wants to help or know anyone interested in assisting with food preparation, baking, purchasing supplies, solicitation of donations, or otherwise volunteering time to reach out to the PTA for more information on how you can help make this event a success. We value every aspect of our amazing volunteers and could not do this event without your help.
We offer two movie nights each year, one in the Fall and one in the Spring. We sell things like pizza, hotdogs, and cotton candy. Parents and kids sit on blankets, sleeping bags, you name it, and watch a recently released (age appropriate) movie. It is a really fun night.
Game Night is an opportunity for families to come together and join their teachers for some friendly competition. Dust off your own classic board game, card game or a gold old fashioned twister board for an evening of fun! The PTA will sell concession type food, too. Any and all games are welcome!
