Host an OUTDOOR Toast to the Teachers!

COVID-19 cancelled last year’s end-of-school rituals, but as our schools and community continue to open up, MFEE is excited to bring back outdoor Toasts to the Teachers!

MFEE Toast to the Teachers is a long-standing tradition of the Montclair Public Schools. These family-hosted parties take place at the end of every school year. Ticket sales for the parties help raise critical funds to support MFEE Educational Excellence Grants, which allow teachers to pilot innovative projects, tools, and experiences for our children.  

This year, MFEE asks that the toast hosts plan an outdoor celebration, and we are extending the window for toasts into the summer.  We are all seeking new opportunities for classmates and families to reconnect, and what better way than honoring your teachers!

Your donations help MFEE award approximately $75,000 in Educational Excellence grants each year to support everything from engaging literature for classroom libraries to grade-level materials to enliven science, to school-wide initiatives to inspire writers. This past year, your donations helped purchase new resources and new materials to support remote and hybrid learning.

We've created some fun ideas to host an outdoor Toast, and we're here to help you design a memorable way to honor your teacher at a time when he/she could really use a morale boost.

Want to honor your teacher without hosting a Toast?

Give a Teacher Tribute, and we'll throw in some extra perks for him/her.

Teachers continue to teach and love our kids during this pandemic; some even do so with their own babies on their laps, their family members out of work, and their loved ones facing illness. Show them a little extra love this year while funding critical teacher grants.
