Our February Parent Engagement Night (PEM) Night will be Tuesday, February 16th at 4:30 pm. Come with your children for a night of learning and fun! Grownups will learn with our GT Specialist Lindsay Bohlinger about the ways to meet the social-emotional needs of our children through Daniel Siegel's book, "The Whole Brain Child." Children who attend with their parents will be enriched through team-building activities and games with Monfort teachers. There will be door prizes for adults and students will have the choice of receiving a very special type of OnTRACK ticket or a free homework pass. A free meal will be provided at 5:30 pm for those who attend. Following PEM, our parent group with teachers and administrators will meet at 6:00 pm in the library for our monthly meeting. We highly encourage all to attend!
Conferences at Monfort
We are excited to meet with all of our families during conferences! Conferences are scheduled for:
Thurs., Feb. 4 from 4-8 pm
Fri., Feb. 5 from 12-4 pm and
Tues., Feb 9 from 4-8 pm
If you have not scheduled a conference for your student, please contact your child's teacher. These are also the times for the Scholastic Book Fair in the Library.
The 5210 Challenge starts on Monday, February 1st! This is a great
opportunity as a school to practice 4 lifelong healthy habits. The 5
stands for eating 5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day. A serving is
about the size of your fist. The 2 stands for less than 2 hours of recreational
screen time. Technology is great but, we need to remember to move! The 1 stands
for 1 hour of physical activity each day. The 0 stands for 0 sugary drinks. The
best choices are always water and low fat milk!
Each student will receive a calendar to
track their progress during the month of February. When a healthy habit is
practiced, students will check it off on their calendar. They can earn up to 4
checks a day! If a student earns 60 check marks, they receive an awesome
Montfort 5210 shirt. It is extremely important for a grown up to sign their
student's log. This is the only way they can receive the t-shirt. The
t-shirt is a great way to show your accomplishments during the challenge!
Family members can also take the challenge. Just ask Ms. Hughes for a family
log or they are also available on the Healthy Kids Club website.
Last year we had an overall participation
rate of 9%. We are hoping to increase that by 15% this year! The class with the
highest participation rate (including parent signatures) will receive a reward!
Teachers and staff are also participating in the challenge to earn their
shirts. Please contact Ms. Hughes with any questions.
Great Things Are Happening!
