Native Garden Enhanced by Stone Birdbath

If you have a moment, please stop by the Native Garden and check out the recently installed stone birdbath.

Now out students can not only enjoy the flora of NJ in […]

Incoming President's Letter- June 2014

It all started with my 2011 Christmas card. As a photographer and an admitted “Photoshop Nerd,” I spend a lot of time on creating my cards from scratch each year. Left with some extra copies after stamping and mailing all my cards for the year, I decided to give a card to each of the […]

The current chairs will be transitioning off the committee after next year, and have graciously offered to provide “on the job” training in the upcoming school year so that the […]

Summer Reading Resources for Students

Summer reading is a critical component to academic success. Did you know that students could experience summer reading loss of up to 3 reading levels? Think about all of the hard work that is put into reading growth throughout the school year. Just one summer of not picking up a book can adversely affect the […]

Principal's Message- June 2014

Dear Parents,

Well, here we are – the end of the school year. I don’t know if you feel the same way, but somehow April and May just “disappeared!” Perhaps it was because the winter was so very long.

As you would imagine, everyone at school has been exceptionally busy. The days and nights have […]
