    Upcoming Presentation

    • Being an Inclusive Community: November 19, 2018

    We invite Montgomery families to take part in a conversation about celebrating the many differences in our community.  When we respect ourselves, we feel good about who we are. When we learn to value people who are different from us, we are better prepared for the diverse world in which we live.

    Join us for a presentation by The People Project, an MHS student group, followed by a panel discussion.  The panel consists of: Dr. Bert Mandelbaum, pediatrician, Devangi Patel, Health Educator, Montgomery Township Health Department, Ms. Zelda Spence-Wallace, school administrator and Montgomery parent, and Robert Seda-Schreiber, Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice.

    We are requesting that you submit your questions for the panel in advance by November 15th through this form
