WESTFIED, NJ — Tamaques first-grade teachers Mary Montes and Jenna Utman (sixth and fifth from left, respectively) presented a check for $4,000 to Ahisha Quallis of the Westfield Neighborhood Council on June 13 to be used towards a new roof for the community center.

The money was raised during the school's charity volleyball game between teachers and parents last month. Additionally, Montes plans to donate the stipend she received as this year's recipient of the Philhower Fellowship to refurbish a classroom at the center.  Montes and Utman will also donate their time to the project.
