I hope you and your families enjoyed the holiday season and the time you spent together. As we begin the year 2015, I renew our school district's commitment to our core values of hard work, communication, diversity, excellence, integrity and respect. The winter months bring important work for our students, teachers, administrators, and Board of Education. I encourage you to stay informed regarding your child's daily school work as well as district and school initiatives including ongoing teaching and learning aligned with the Common Core and PARCC. 

Starting in January and continuing throughout the winter into spring, we are reviewing progress toward district goals and planning the 2015-2016 budget. Additionally, please look for information regarding an updated attendance policy based on changes in New Jersey State statute. Ensuring that your child arrive on time and attend regularly is one of the most important things parents/guardians can do to help their child learn and achieve.

One new feature on our website is the "problem-solving chain" (CLICK HERE) that is designed to help you know who to call should you have a question or experience a difficulty. In the near future, we are sharing the results of the district survey conducted earlier this year and will also be sending a follow-up survey with opportunities for you to participate in-person through focus group sessions.

For those of you that are experiencing economic or other family challenges, please mark your calendars and look for information regarding our first every Family Outreach evening being held on February 5 from 6:00 - 8:00pm. You are encouraged to regularly visit our website and also attend our Board of Education meetings. Your voices help us to assess our progress and understand your priorities. Best wishes to you and your family for a healthy and positive New Year!
