Principal Message

Dear Montair Students and Parents,  

We are excited to share that we will be returning to school completely in person this year! We cannot wait to see your children in our classrooms, on the playgrounds, in the science lab and in the library.  As we return to campus this year, we will focus on reestablishing connections among our students and staff . We look forward to fostering a sense of community and inclusion. 

Montair Elementary School is staffed with an amazing team of caring, committed educators.  Our teachers pour their hearts and souls into teaching their students to the best of their ability.  They take the time to get to know their students, figure out how best to nurture their interests and design learning experiences to engage their passion. Our students come to school each day eager to learn and leave each day wiser, more knowledgeable and assured knowing how much we care about their learning. 

At Montair, we are committed to educating the whole child, offering opportunities for them to grow artistically, academically and athletically.  Due to our community's generosity, in addition to the core curriculum, our students enjoy art, gardening, and music across the grades.  Run Club will start in September and run throughout the year. 

Our parent organizations, PTA, Dad's Club and the Montair Foundation are gearing up for a year full of fun and making memories.  This year, we are once again excited to have our school carnival, movie night, family picnic, Halloween parade, Restaurant of the Month, and our annual Montair Foundation Auction. Thanks to our parent organizations, our teachers, and our staff's efforts, our families enjoy the warm, loving community that defines Montair. 

Your children form their attitudes and beliefs about themselves as learners during their time at Montair. It is a privilege to be part of the team that guides our students at the beginning of their social-emotional and academic journeys. I am dedicated to working together with the staff, teachers, parents, and children at Montair, so we can co-create a warm, yet rigorous learning environment for all our students.

Please remember to follow us on your preferred social media platform and don't miss the Montair Minute, sent out each week to our families. If you have any questions, please contact me at




Here’s to a fantastic year! 


Warm Regards,


Elizabeth Lyons
