Do one small thing on May 16 for district’s inaugural Community Day

icon of a heart with Monticello logoOn May 16, the Monticello Central School District will host its inaugural Community Day during its district-wide spirit week – and we’re asking you to join us in showing off that Monti pride, and working with us to prove that small acts of kindness create a ripple effect that grows and grows.  

We are asking everyone to wear blue and white on Tuesday, May 16, and/or to also do one small thing to make Monticello a better place. What sort of small thing? That’s up to you! Perhaps you’ll pay for a stranger’s coffee. Maybe you’ll grab a group of friends and pick up litter on your block? Maybe you’ll leave an especially generous tip for your server? Whatever you do, we want to hear about it so that we can share it, and inspire others to do the same!

Take a photo of your good deed (whether you perform the deed or are the recipient), or of you and your friends and co-workers wearing blue and white and tag us on social media using the hashtag #WeAreMonticello. No social media? Send your photos to and we’ll share with our followers!

Visit our website, or follow us on social media for more information, or to get ideas about how you can celebrate as the day approaches!

Donations sought

The spirit week committee is seeking small donations of items to be used as prizes for students, staff and community members during our district-wide spirit week. Some examples include gift cards to local businesses, baskets or any item that would be a welcome surprise for folks who go out of their way to show their Monti pride during spirit week. Please contact Public Information Officer Courtney Bonfante at if you’d like to contribute.
