NJSLA State Testing starts on May 1st. Testing starts at 8AM, so please make sure your child arrives to school on time. Please encourage your child to do their best and be sure to have a good night's sleep, along with a nutritious breakfast. Due to testing security protocols, smart watches and cell phones are not permitted during testing. In accordance with school procedures, cell phones and smart watches must be turned off and put away. It is also important that your child report to school on time during their testing window. If a student arrives after testing has started, they will need to make up the session on another day.

May: Asian/Pacific Islander Heritage and Jewish American Heritage Month

Amy Tan is an author. Her stories weave multi-generational experiences through stories where her characters challenge their own identity through the art of story telling. HERE is her story. May celebrates Asian/Pacific Islander Heritage. The AAPI acronym simplifies an extensive part of the globe where art, music, philosophy, religion, history, and so many other ideals emanate.

May is also Jewish American Heritage Month. Here is a powerful Ted Talk from Eitan Chitayat who describes why he felt compelled to create “I’m that Jew” a 6-minute stereotype-defying tour de force in response to the 2015 Charlie Hebdo and kosher supermarket attacks in Paris.

Both Amy Tan and Eitan Chitayat focus on creating from chaos, using different forms of art to recreate meaning from tragedy. I hope you have a few minutes to listen to them both and see how their "otherness" and how their experiences drive their work.
