    Fed-up having your plans cancelled?  Nothing in the calendar? Let us change that! 

    Please join your school community for the inaugural Montclaire Elementary School Virtual 5K!  Run your own race, your own route and on your own schedule during race weekend!

    Did you know that every year MPTO raises in excess of $440,000 to fund invaluable programs and resources for our students?  Despite our high property taxes, California public schools face funding shortfalls.  As a result, annual per-pupil funding in our school is significantly lower than the national average, and funding to our District (CUSD) is below the California average.  While our District leaders do more with less, MPTO brings the community together to address the challenge of fundraising for the staff and programs desired by our community.  

    The last few months have been challenging in so many ways, however, the funding needed for the 2020-2021 school year is no different to previous years. The greatest cost in our fundraising budget is staff (85%) who we will continue to employ and support, regardless of whether we implement full-time distance learning, a hybrid model or return to pre-Covid in person schooling.  This year, more than ever, we need your SUPPORT!

    So here's how you can help:

    • PARTICIPATE: Whether you run, walk or crawl, get outside for some fresh air and exercise and raise much needed funds for your school.  Although we can't have our usual face-to-face event, we hope you will continue to support this much loved community event.  Show your Montclaire Pride, sign-up the whole family, tell all your friends, family and neighbors!
    • SPONSOR: If you own a small business, consider sponsoring the event, there are two tiers available
    • UNDERWRITE: What about having your family name on the back of the fabulous custom designed t-shirt?  By underwriting the event for $100 you help defray the cost of purchasing and printing the race shirts. This add-on item can be purchased at the time of Registration.
    • DONATE: Unable to participate? Make a tax deductible donation to the 5K Fundraiser!  

    We will be using an App to manage the virtual race and further details of this and other fun ideas will be shared nearer the time.
