News & Notes

SEL Article: Our last SEL article of the school year is ready for reading! Stop by the front office before you leave for spring break to pick up your copy! We will be discussing this month's topic during our team meetings when we return.

Spring Test/Data: Grades 1 & 2 will administer their F&P benchmarks during NJSLA/PARCC week. Grade 3 will administer F&P the week of 5/20. All data (including DIBELS & Math Benchmarks) will be due on Friday, May 31st.

Trip Season: Class trip season is in full swing! if you have a student that is not attending and is staying at school, please have a placement ready for them along with their assignments.

International Club UPDATE: International Club will resume on May 9th.

PM Buses: In recent weeks, we have been experiencing an increase in students missing their bus in the afternoon. Please use our PM announcements (Check-in & Capes) as a barometer to start kicking off your end-of-the-day routines. In the event that a student misses his/her bus, it is up to the teacher to contact the parent/guardian & to remain with the student until the conclusion of the contractual day (3:00 PM).
