Parent Update: September 30
Week of Respect (October 3 - 7)
The Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (P.L.2010, c.122) requires that the week beginning with the first Monday in October of each year be designated as the Week of Respect in New Jersey. The purpose of the Week of Respect is to teach students how to respect others, our school, our community, and ourselves, as well as how to prevent harassment, intimidation, and bullying situations.
Meet the LAF Design & Technology and Music/Chorus Teacher
Miss Goodstein is in her third year of teaching General Music, Chorus, and Theatre at Lafayette School. Her love for music began at a young age singing “42nd Street” in a recording booth in Nashville when she was 8 years old. Over the years, Miss Goodstein’s passion for music and theatre blossomed performing in Summit High School’s productions along with the Papermill Playhouse Broadway Show Choir. Since then, Miss Goodstein has developed a love for directing and started the first ever 5th Grade Musical last year. She hopes to continue fostering a love for music and theatre in her students with a show each year. Miss Goodstein also loves to travel! She has spent many summers with The Delaware Choral Scholars singing in places like Israel, Greece, Malta, France, and Croatia. She is also a member of the Gordon Institute for Music Learning and has her Level 1 Certification in General Music. Miss Goodstein can’t wait for another AMAZING year at Lafayette with the best students ever. :)
My name is Kyle Kermick and I teach Design and Technology at Lafayette. I have been doing this for 9 years now and love every second! Seeing all of the students at Lafayette is also such a nice perk of the position. I love incorporating new technologies and giving these young students a glimpse into really engaging careers they could choose to study later in life!
Be Inspired By Gobi
On October 18th there will be an assembly for 4th grade and 5th grade. The students will meet Gobi during the assembly. Each assembly will focus on the importance of staying active, the students will learn more about Gobi's story, and receive tips on how to be active and healthy. Gobi will attend the LAF Mini Marathon, too.
Even if you are not part of the LAF Mini Marathon come cheer on Gobi and your friends. Supporting one is part of Gobi's story too!
