School Year 2018-19 is in Session

Thursday, September 6, 2018

It still felt like summer, but Montclair students looked cool in their first day of school outfits for their return for the 2018-19 school year. Around the district, principals, vice principals, administrators, community members including the police, fire department and rescue squad were all front and center to welcome students and their families. At Northeast, the PTA provided photo frames in which students could pose and Hillside rocked the morning with a DJ and a “High Five Hallway,” as students made their way through the front doors. See some of the day’s highlights below.
