Building community through strong connections, MCPK’s Parents Association (PA) turns our individual families into one big MCPK family. Young families need access to each other for socialization and support, which is why we regularly come together for fun and inclusive events.

  • STEAM Family Day: hands-on projects and workshops for children and their parents/caregivers.
  • Harvest Festival: fall-themed activities for families.
  • Nicky Schnarr Family Dance: a dance party with live DJ and activities.
  • Garden Clean-Up Day: prepares our beautiful outdoor gardens for learning.

Through fundraisers like book fairs, bake sales and the Family Dance, the PA helps to raise money for our Scholarship Program, which ensures that any Montclair child can attend MCPK, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. The PA also fundraises for and executes legacy gifts such as the MCPK Edible Garden, Peace Garden Song and Mural Project.
