What's Happening Now
The Governor signed a bill on May 16, 2013 that would give schools some relief from making up snow days. Montabella will have two schedule changes due to this relief option.
LAST DAY FOR STUDENTS IN THE 2012-2013 SCHOOL YEAR WILL BE THURSDAY JUNE 6TH.
THE MAY 23RD LATE START HAS BEEN CHANGED TO A FULL DAY OF SCHOOL.
Please make these changes to your calendar.

A Huge Mustang Thank You!
Montabella Community Schools would like to take a moment to thank our friends at Isabella Bank. This week two brand new scoreboards were installed at our Baseball and Softball fields. These scoreboards were provided by a very generous donation through Isabella Bank. We are thankful to have them as both a business partner as well as a partner in the community. Thank You!
Our Varsity BB and SB teams drew a bye for Pre-Districts, but we were able to schedule games with Evart instead. The games will be on Tuesday, May 28th at 4pm at Evart.
With the recent cancellations, we have been able to add games for both our JV and Varsity softball teams.
Due to a scheduling conflict with Lakeview, they had to cancel our baseball and softball games next Monday. They have to make up league games on that day. However, our Varsity Baseball and Softball teams did pick up games with Harrison on that day instead.
