Dear Montague Families,


I am very excited to share a golden opportunity that Montague students will be having in November.  We have been selected by the 49er

Foundation to have all of our K-5 students have a fully paid field trip to the 49er Museum.   They are also paying for the transportation to and from the stadium.  Only a certain number of students can go at a time, so we will be sending classes on three different dates, November 14th,  24th, and 25th


In order for students to be able to attend, students must have a signed permission form.  Part of the permission is whether or not your child can be included in pictures and videos that may be used by the Foundation for promotional activities.  That, of course, is your choice, by checking the yes or no box.  The other part of the permission form is to approve of your child’s attendance at the field trip.  Being a large organization, it is written with very strong language with a lot of legal terms to protect the 49er organization.  Please be assured that students visit the museum on a daily basis and no one has ever been hurt.   I encourage you to look beyond the legalese of the permission slip and sign it so that your children can have this great experience. 


The students in K-3 will be learning about Fit For Football as their overall theme at the museum.  Students in grades 4 & 5 will be learning about field irrigation.  Teachers will have pre-lessons that they will do in the classroom prior to the field trip so that our students our ready for the big day.


Another big event coming up is our Halloween Parade, which will take place on October 31st from 1:15-1:50.  We will parade in three groups K/1, 2/3 and 4/5 (each for about 10 minutes) so that the parade circle is smaller and students will be able to view the other students as well.  Following the parade, the students will return to their classroom for activities and classroom fun.   Except for TK and  kindergarten, children should not wear their costumes to school.  They will change after lunch.  More details will be sent home, but in looking at costumes please remember nothing too scary, nothing revealing, no high heels, no weapons or sharp objects of any kind, no make-up, and no full face masks.     Remember we are an elementary school.  Simple is best and we will only have a few minutes to change.

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.
