Dear Parents, Guardians & Students.


Welcome back students and families to the 2022-2023 school year at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs! 


I would hope that everyone had a great summer.


My name is Edward Montas and I am very delighted to introduce myself as the Science teacher for grades four through eight. Our faculty and staff at OLQM are ecstatic to return to school in person.  My commitment to teach your child using  Next Generation Science Standards through hands-on lessons and experimental training which will prepare their minds for new and upcoming challenges of an ever changing world.  

The protocols and challenges linked with COVID-19 have normalized and it is safe to say that this year will be filled with wonderful surprises, trips and outdoor activities leading to the exploration of science.


Mr. Woods has posted several announcements on the school blog with updated information about the upcoming school year. Please take the time to check it periodically. The building will be open to parents making communication between parent and teacher more feasible.


I have posted the school supplies necessary for this upcoming school year term below.


I am anticipating a pleasant year teaching Science to your child.


In order to communicate effectively with parents please feel free to contact me through  Google Classroom or my school email mrmontas@olqmnyc.org
