Fire Prevention Week

October 10-14, 2016

During Fire Prevention Week, the students discussed in their classrooms, how to be safe if they should be in a fire or around items that could cause fires.

The William Cameron Engine Company came to talk with the students, how to be safe if they should be in a burning building, or how to handle if they find lighter or matches around their house.

The students truly enjoyed seeing the fireman dressed in his fire suite, and the information the fire department shared with them. The students have a better understanding that they shouldn’t be afraid if a fireman would try to help them in an emergency situation, as well as how often they should change their batteries in their smoke detectors.

Montandon truly appreciated William Cameron Engine Company for coming, and giving our students knowledge how to be safe with fire.

Dear Montandon families,

Please mark your calendars for our

Second Annual Fall Fest!!

Thursday, October 20th


We would like to invite you to an evening of fall fun here at Montandon Elementary School.

There will be games, hayrides and a haunted bus!!

In an effort to make the 2016 Montandon Elementary School Fall Fest extra special, we are hoping that each class would be willing to prepare a themed gift basket made by the students. We will definitely need volunteers and donations from each classroom to make this happen.

Your child’s grade will be making a basket:

Kindergarten: Baking Basket

1st grade: Snack Attack Basket

2nd grade: Kitchen Thingamajigs Basket

3rd grade:Gone for the Dogs Basket

4th grade: Relax and Read Basket

5th grade: Chocolate Lovers Basket

Donations of either money or items can be sent in anytime until Tuesday, Oct. 18th.

Volunteers will be needed to place the items in a basket, box or bag before Oct. 20.  Your class can be creative with choice of container.

The baskets will be on display during a fall fest, and during the parent conferences on November 3rd and 4th.

You will be able to purchase tickets at both events to place in a container in front of the basket you want to win.  Winners will be drawn the week of November 7th, and you will be alerted if you are the winner of a basket. 

Please feel free to contact your classroom teacher with questions about the themed basket.

Please come! You will have a blast!!

All School Walk

All students participated in an All School Walk on Wednesday, October 5, 2016. The walk began at 8:00 starting with 5th grade, followed by fourth and so on. Students were called down by their grade level. We exited using our front doors. Once everyone was outside they all walked for 10 minutes around the outlined track.

In an effort to stem the rise in childhood obesity, Penn State Hershey PRO Wellness Center with Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital has partnered with Kohl’s Department Store to create the program, Kohl’s Healthy Champions.  This program teaches children and families the importance of bringing healthy choices to life starting with eating healthy and getting active.  Our first event as a Healthy Champion District was the All School Walk. International Walk to (or at) School Day, a global movement bringing together millions of walkers from around the world to provide safe walking to (or at) school.
