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 will be included.

Montrose parent and local professional photographer, Mark Steele, has volunteered and taken 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.

The Annual Montrose PTO Summer Reading Pizza Party was held on Wednesday, September 17th, during lunch in the Montrose Gym.

A total of 176 Montrose students turned in reading forms that listed the books they read over the summer. Those students in return received an invitation to the pizza party lunch. All grade levels of Montrose readers were represented and with favorites ranging from Nate The Great to The Fault In Our Stars, plenty of students were sharing what they had read with the parent volunteers that were serving pizza from Bexley Pizza Plus.

Pizza and bottled water were provided by the Montrose PTO and Montrose teachers provided ice cream sandwiches for dessert.
