FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK

Thank you to all of the AWESOME Cambridge families who joined us for the Tour de South Brunswick last week! I think everyone would agree that it was a great family event! The Education Foundation could not thank us enough for our participation and support of education. They are already starting to plan for next year!


Congratulations to the students in Chorus, Strings, and Recorders!! The concert this week was absolutely beautiful! Thank you to Mrs. Garwood, Mrs. Stanek, and Mr. Brungard for their hard work and preparation!


Today, Friday, June 6th, we will celebrate with our 4th grade students as they share their knowledge in the "Our Voices, Our Times, Our America" performance. We know that they will be fantastic!


Finally, please join us tonight for the Family Picnic starting at 6:30pm!


Thank you for your support and enjoy the weekend.


Mrs. Capes :)

FIELD DAY NOTE!!!!! - FRIDAY, JUNE 13th!

Due to the overwhelming response from the wonderful parent volunteers, we will have many visitors at the building on Field Day. For the safety and security of our students, we are limiting all visitors to those who are registered as official volunteers. Please do not walk the grounds unless you have an official "Field Day Volunteer" sticker. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. Should you need to be at the building for any reason, you must register in the main office and we will assist you with whatever is needed.


Also, PLEASE remember to...


  • Put sun block on at home before coming to school.
  • Wear a hat to protect from the heat.
  • Remember to wear your sneakers
  • Bring a disposable water bottle and perhaps a change of clothes.
  • Most important – Be prepared for a great day!


***All Field Day Volunteer e-mails have been sent. You should also receive the description of your area in your child's backpack no later than today.***
