Mt Tabor News and Information
The Mt Tabor Band needs your help to make its parade dreams a reality!
Our very own MTMS Marching Band is hoping to purchase essential marching band equipment that will make it possible for the band to take part in parades for years to come. The first step to making this dream a reality is to raise $4000 in the next 45 days through the band's newly launched crowdfunding site.

During conferences, the Mt. Tabor book fair will be held in the school library. The fair will be open starting at 9am and will close at 8pm. Please consider stopping in and looking at what the book fair has to offer! If you cannot make it into the fair, Mt. Tabor is also promoting an online fair which runs from November 20th through December 10th. The link to the online fair will be posted below. If you order a book online, the book will get shipped to Mt. Tabor where it will then be distributed. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our library assistant, Susannah Carver at email@example.com, or call (503) 916-5646.

Due to security reasons, all parent activation keys that were not used expired on November 9th. New parent activation keys have been generated and are valid until December 27. Please note that this is only for parents who have not activated their ParentVUE account. Parents who have already activated their account and are using ParentVUE will not be affected. If you have not activated ParentVUE in Synergy to monitor your student’s school work, we will have a letter for you at conferences explaining how to do it again – with a current activation key.

School starts at 9:05AM and breakfast is served at 8:50 a.m. Please do not drop off your students earlier than 9:05a.m. unless your student is registered for Before School Supervision. School ends at 3:45 p.m. and students have to leave school grounds by 4:00 p.m. We do not have staff supervision before or after school hours for students.
