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:
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 “email@example.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.

Rules and General Information
More detailed rules to be send home soon.
On Friday, May 1, our entire school will be participating in a Walk-A-Thon. We wish to extend an invitation to family and friends to join us in helping raise funds for activities here at school. Each participant will raise funds by asking family and friend to sponsor them based on the number of laps they walk. Sponsors can pledge money per lap (i.e. $0.50 per lap), or a flat donation should they prefer. Please use the green sponsor pledge sheet that was sent home.
Student and classes will also have an opportunity to ear a number of prized and awards based on their participation in the Walk-A-Thon.
Pledge money collection for laps walked will begin on Monday, May 4, after the Walk-A-Thon. All pledge donations are due Thursday, May 21.
Day of Walk-A-Thon, remember:
Wear tennis shoes, a hat, sunblock and bring a water bottle!
Thank you for your continued support of our great school,

Montague Mustang Message
It is very important to remind everyone once again of the importance of safety when dropping off and picking up students. Last week, a student almost got hit by a car because a parent let him walk through the parking lot. Please, that cannot happen. I understand that it can be very crowded in the parking lot, and often children are not there when you are in a car line to pick up, or the morning night be about to ring and your child may be tardy. But, none of these reasons are important enough to put our precious children at risk. Please, when dropping off and picking up, pull all the way up. Do not ask your child to cross the parking lot. Do not hold up the line of waiting cars. Safety for all the students should be first on the mind of all of us. Thank you for caring and doing what's right!
This Saturday from 8:30-1:30, our PTSA is sponsoring the Montague Market. We had a lot of fun and sold a lot of goods to each other last year. We are excited to do it again. We need buyers to give our items a new home, so please plan to join us at the Market. There will also be food, face painting, and bargains. Our Scholastic Book Sales will also be open during the Montague Market. Join in the fun!
On Tuesday, March 31st, we have FAMILY MATH NIGHT. Please bring your Montague students and join us for a fun-filled evening enjoying math activities and math games. We will also have the computer lab open and students can show their parents the math activities they are working on in the lab. I even have a fun math game that the older students can participate in along with their parents.
Our Montague School Home Page on our Web Page is now up to date, both in content and on the calendar. Please visit it often and keep up to date on happenings and announcements from school. We will do our best to keep it up. There is a button you can press, "PeachJar" (which looks like this)
which will let you get lots of informational flyers from the school and district. We will soon be inputting your email address into the school information date so the flyers will also come directly to your email.
I encourage all parents to attend Coffee with the Principal on Friday, March 27th from 8:30-9:30. I appreciate the input and the support, and getting to know you on a personal level. Please come and share the communication, sweet treats, and time with me, the principal.
Dr. Lorrie Wernick, Principal
