Family Engagement


All families are encouraged to join the PTA and to participate in the many activities and events that they sponsor. There are many opportunities to become involved and you are encouraged to attend the monthly meetings, sign up for committee work, and/or volunteer at any one of the many fun and exciting events - don't miss the Annual Pancake Breakfast and Mayfair! The PTA has a dedicated website and a mailbox in the school for your convenience.

School Action Team for Partnership

The Montclair Board of Education believes that the success of the school and the students it serves is the shared responsibility of school administrators, teachers, families, and community partners. Consistent with its commitment to create and maintain a system of high-performing magnet schools, the Montclair Board of Education has authorized the implementation of a School Action Team for Partnerships (P-2419) at each school driven by the diverse voices of its members to inform and support the School Improvement Plan.

Classroom/School Volunteers

Teachers welcome help in a variety of ways: work with small groups of children, chaperone a field trip, share a part of your culture, help with special projects, etc. Contact your child's teacher or respond to his/her requests to see how you can become actively involved in the classroom.

  • Please follow visitor procedures each time you volunteer
  • Make sure that you have scheduled your volunteer time in advance with the teacher
  • Because volunteers are sometimes exposed to confidential matters, it is expected that the rights of the students and school personnel be respected by holding matters strictly confidential

Parent Liaisons for District Programs

Parents are invited to represent Nishuane at the district level for SEPAC, School Action Team, etc. If you're interested in any of these opportunities, please notify the office.
