Montgomery Locals Sept. 2, 2015

By Staff | Sep 2, 2015

I have been very busy this week as students returned to school. It was a successful start to the school year both inside of the classroom and out. Fall athletic scrimmages are underway with most regular season games beginning within the next few weeks. The Marching Band has been busy rehearsing and was one of the bands featured in the Little League parade.

Auditions are beginning this week for the music and theatre program’s upcoming season. The school has developed a new website where community members can log on and check out a calendar of events and activities regarding school happenings. It’s the same school website with a new look! Go to www.montasd.org.
