The Montrose Playground Project is really picking up steam and rolling towards the goal to renovate the Montrose Playground this summer.
May features some big events planned with Monty’s 5K and a Black Tie & Blue Jean Backyard.
Check out the project website at www.MontrosePlayground.org for all the details and updated information.
April 22nd is Try It Tuesday!
During lunch, students have the opportunity to try Black Bean Brownies! The brownies are delicious.
If you would like to try them at home, the recipe follows:
- 1 can (15.5 oz) of black beans, rinsed & drained
- 3 eggs
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup of white sugar
- 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 8X8 square baking pan.
- Combine black beans, eggs, oil, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla extract and sugar in a blender; blend until smooth; pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the top of mixture (optional).
- Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and the edges start to pull away from the sides of the pan, about 30 minutes.
The Annual Montrose Fun Run is set for Friday, April 25th, at 2:15PM, rain or shine! The Fun Run is the annual run the entire student body of Montrose Elementary takes part in and is a storied tradition at the school.
The route is as follows:
All students start on the Remington Road side of the school and run south on Remington. The kindergarten classes turn west on Mound, grades 1, 2, & 3 turn west on Mound, and grades 4, 5, & 6 turn west on Charles, then proceed to Montrose Ave. All grades run north on Montrose Ave back to the finish line right outside the west side of school.
Volunteers are needed to help set up, assist in distribution of water and snacks, clean up, but most importantly to monitor the route and intersections along the route. If you have students in the upper grades, your help could really be used on Charles. You will be able to cheer on the runners from these locations and help set up and break down the barricades the City of Bexley is providing to block off the alleys.
Volunteers can sign up here and do not have to check in at the school office, simply show up at intersection you are signing up to monitor.
Thanks so much for your consideration to helping the strong Fun Run tradition continue at Montrose!
Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week is the week of May 5th-9th at Montrose.
Stay tuned for emails from your grade level PTO representatives to sign to donate items to bring in for meals for the teachers & staff at Montrose. Each grade level will host different types of meals for the teachers & staff, in the staff lounge.
Montrose teachers & staff are always appreciated, but this is a special week in which the students and their families show that appreciation, prior to the end of the school year.
Thank you for participating and helping to make this week so special.
