Dear Montague Families,


Tomorrow, September 18th is the last day of the fall Scholastic Book Fair.  This year it is on the stage in the cafeteria, but there are just as many books as when it was in the library.  There are lots of great books for sale, so don’t miss out.  The book fair will be open tomorrow before school as well as after school until 6:30.  Books make great gifts for children.  It teaches them that you value reading and it instills a life-long joy.  If you can’t make it to the Book Fair, look at the PTSA connection on our website to see how to order online.  In the next two weeks, if you order online through Scholastic Books, we get credit towards purchasing books for our library.


Next week, on September 29th, September 30th, October 1st, and October 2nd are parent conferences at Montague School. Conferences are very important for both parents and teachers.  As you form a partnership in educating the children, it gives you a time to meet, share goals, and plan for the year.  We want every child to have the best year possible, so please, make it a priority to come to the conference.

Your child’s teacher will be sending home a time when the conference has been scheduled.  We scheduled them around families with siblings, so they are scheduled consecutively whenever possible.  Please, try not to change the time that was assigned to you as it affects the times of many others.

In order to give the teachers more time to schedule conferences, all students in grades K-5th will be dismissed on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday next week at 1:42.  All students in TK will attend the AM session only from 8:30 to 11:50 on those four days.  We ask that you be prompt in picking up children as teachers cannot supervise students and conduct conference at the same time. 



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.

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.
