Peachjar Eflyers

Dear SCUSD families,

Santa Clara Unified School District is launching a new electronic flyer communication tool called “Peachjar.” To view school- and district-approved eflyers, simply click the Peachjar button on your school’s website homepage. The button should begin appearing on your school's website over the next week or so.

It looks like this:


This “green” initiative will save our schools tons of paper and reduce copy costs by thousands of dollars. On top of that, posting school flyers in this electronic backpack removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers. 

No action is required on your part. If the district has your email address on file in our student information system, you will receive a welcome email from our service provider (Peachjar) that includes a username and password. This is provided to give you the opportunity to manage your account and flyer delivery preferences. You do not need to login to receive or view school eflyers. If you do not receive a welcome email within the next week, contact your school office to update your email address on file.

To ensure smooth delivery of this communication, we suggest you add “school@peachjar.com” to your email contacts. When you receive your first eflyer, be sure to click “always display images.”

This system is used exclusively for distribution of school- and district-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose. Thank you for supporting our efforts to ensure parents are well informed about school and district programs, activities, and events.

Montague Mustang Message


On Friday this week, all of our students will participate in the Walk-A-Thon.  This is a big day for our students who will try to walk 50 laps in the time allowed between 12:30 and 3:30.  Students walk to be healthy and to gain life long commitments to exercise and being fit.  They also walk as a special fundraising activity for our school.  If you can, families are encouraged to pledge funding support for each lap a student walks.  The monies are collected by our PTSA.  This year, the funds were used to support every grade level having field trips.  Busses are expensive and your donations mean a lot to our children.

If you have your volunteer packet on file with the office, feel free to come watch the children as they walk.  Encouragement to keep going is always appreciated and we can always use helping hand in providing water, motivators, and small snacks through the PTSA.

Although it is a free dress day, all children should come to school in comfortable walking shoes so they are ready to walk.  Also, the weather will be sunny and warm.  We are encouraging all children to bring a hat to wear.  It can be a funny hat to add to the fun of the day.



Coming up soon, on Tuesday, May 19th, we will have our annual Open House.  This is a time when the whole family can come to school and your children can share some of the things they did during the year.  This fun event will be from 6:00-7:15 in all grades TK-5th.



Remember that we will b singing on two days this time.  Our State Pre-School, TK, Kindergarten, First and Second Grade will be on Tuesday, May 26th from 6:30-7:30.  Our Third, Fourth, and Fifth Grade will be on Wednesday, May 27th from 6:30-7:30.


Dr. Lorrie Wernick, Principal

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.
