Our Innisbrook Gift Wrap and Goodies PTO fundraiser has concluded.
Thanks so much for all the support in participating in this major fundraising.
Participation was either selling at least 1 Innisbrook item or making a donation directly to the PTO without selling anything. The Montrose PTO always accepts donations and checks can be made to the Montrose PTO.
Each year the PTO likes to sponsor an Artists In Schools program. This year it is the Inside Out Project and the theme is Play.
Montrose art teacher, Emily Reiser, and parent volunteer, Stacey Seleen, have contracted with the Inside Out project to produce large scale 36″ x 53″ posters of student and staff portraits that will hang on the exterior walls of the gym, facing the newly installed play structures on the Montrose Playground.
Students were sent home the Inside Out Project information, a permission slip and asked to consider donating an optional $20 towards the project, to cover printing expenses. No one was turned down and everyone that wanted to participate is included.
Montrose parent and local professional photographer, Mark Steele, volunteered and took the up close portraits of subjects making funny and playful faces. The photos are aimed at showing the community how powerful the simple act of play is and how it is an integral part of learning.
The project was approved by the Bexley Board of Education and The City of Bexley over the summer. Stay tuned as the Inside Out Project and Montrose Group Action: Play is installed this fall.
Students smiled nice and had their picture taken, individually and with their class, on Friday, October 3rd.
Thanks to Picture Day organizer Christy Newman and all the parent volunteers that made the logistics of picture day run very smoothly.
