IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO HOST A TOAST!

 

Between MAY 25 - JUNE 22, the Montclair Fund for Educational Excellence (MFEE)

will hold its 21st season of the Toast to the Teachers event series. You can be part of it -- choose a special teacher, principal, coach or other person from Montclair Public Schools and host a party (we call them Toasts) in their honor. You cover the (tax-deductible) costs of your party and proceeds benefit MFEE programs in Montclair Public Schools.

 

 

WHY HOST?

  • Raise funds to directly impact every student in our district
  • Build community by bringing us together to celebrate our school heroes.
  • Nurture bottom-up innovation from teachers who receive grants funded by Toast dollars.

 

  

HOW DOES IT WORK? 

  • Choose a special teacher, principal, coach, or other person from Montclair Public Schools and host a party (we call them Toasts) in their honor.
  • Confer with your honoree to pick a date & type of party between

    MAY 25 and JUNE 22. Family ice cream party in the park, adult-only cocktail party, dinner under the stars - whatever you fancy!

  • Visit www.mfee.org/events.html to complete registration process or by calling 973-509-4021 at least 2 weeks before your party. We'll help set the party fee.
  • We will create your online Toast Registration page!
  • Toast hosts cover the (tax-deductible) costs of the parties (teaming up with other families is a great idea)

YOUR TOAST DOLLARS IN ACTION

 

In addition to honoring our wonderful teachers, the MFEE Toast to the Teachers events raise funds to directly impact every student in our district.

 

Funds raised from last year's Toasts supported several teacher-initiated proposals for Bee-bots and other early coding tools for elementary students.  

 

Take a peek at how Bullock Elementary School fourth-grade students in Ms. Jenna Nierstedt's class are combining math review and coding to guide their bee-bots' travel around a grid:
