Gentle Reminder

Next week is Red Ribbon Week (Monday, October 20th through Friday, October 24th).  Our PTSA and Student Council have worked together to make it a very meaningful and educational week for the students.  In addition to the traditional message of saying NO to drugs and alcohol, we will use the week as a time to teach healthy choices including healthy living and healthy eating. 


Monday – Student Council will decorate the campus with red ribbons.  PTSA will provide necklaces for all students.  They should be worn all week.


Tuesday - Students may wear Red.  Officer Garcia will present assemblies, mainly on anti-bullying.


Wednesday – Students will be encouraged to "Walk and Roll to School" to promote a healthy lifestyle.  At recess, student council will take pledges for a sticker to say NO to drugs for grades 1-5.


Thursday - "Sock It to Bullying" Students will be allowed to wear crazy socks to school.  At recess, student council will take pledges for a sticker to say NO to drugs for students in grades 1-5.


Friday - "Be a Jean-ius, Don't do Drugs.  Live a healthy Lifestyle."  - Students can wear jeans and Montague spirit clothing to school.

Students will be given a "candy bag" with Red Ribbon Week Messages purchased by PTSA.


We will also be doing a door decoration contest with a pizza prize going to a K-2 class and a 3-5 class.  PTSA will provide the prize.  Student Council will be judging on Friday afternoon. 



There have been many questions about the program.  We are still waiting for clarification from the district on how they will be providing instruments for all who need them.  But as of now, we will begin the program and students may attend even if they don't have their instruments yet.

Safety First

Hello Montague Families,

I hope your first few weeks of school have gone well.  With more kids walking at the beginning of the school year, we are sharing this brief safety brochure with you.  It contains good reminders for all of us to be aware and safe as we go through our week.  Thank you.


Safety Brochure

Transitional Kindergarten

The California Legislature passed the “Kindergarten Readiness Act of 2010” (Senate Bill 1381), which amended the California Education Code to change the birthdate defining admission to Kindergarten. Children who are five years old before the following dates will be admitted to Kindergarten:

  • For the 2012–13 school year, the date is November 1
  • For the 2013–14 school year, the date is October 1
  • For the 2014–15 school year and each school year thereafter, the date is September 1.

To accommodate children who are not yet eligible for Kindergarten admission by these dates, but turn five before December 2, the District is hoping to implement a Transitional Kindergarten program. A Transitional Kindergarten is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program that uses a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate.

A child will be eligible for Transitional Kindergarten if he or she will have a fifth birthday between:

  • For the 2012–13 school year, November 2 and December 2
  • For the 2013–14 school year, October 2 and December 2
  • For the 2014–15 school year and each school year thereafter September 2 and December 2.

Please see the flyer linked below for more information regarding Transitional Kindergarten, including an important note about the uncertainty of funding for this program.
