The Science Fair is Coming!

The Sussex Science Fair is April 3rd. We are in need of parent volunteers. If you'd like to help please the link to sign up.

Thank you in advance for volunteering to help. We couldn't do it without you.

State Testing is on the Horizon

As visions of Spring and warm weather are on everyone's minds, I wanted to share our testing window to aid in Spring planning. Our testing window for the New Jersey Student Learning Assessments Schedule (formally PARCC) will be 4/30/19 - 5/31/19.

Students will have two unit session of ELA (90 minutes for grades 4/5, 75 minutes for grade 3) and three unit sessions (60 minutes each session for all grades) of math. Each unit will be conducted on separate days.

Keep Calm and Do Your Best!

The dreaded stomach bug…

Who doesn’t hate a stomach bug? Though seen throughout the year, they are most common between November and April. Over the past few weeks we’ve had several students with stomachaches, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea; all signs and symptoms of gastrointestinal (GI) illness or the stomach bug.

Stomach bugs can be very contagious but there are a few things you can do to prevent them. Wash your hands often. Keep your child home when they have these symptoms and for 24 hours after vomiting or diarrhea subsides completely and a regular diet is tolerated.

In most cases, your child will get better on their own after 1 to 3 days. Call your doctor's office if your child still has symptoms after this time. You should also pay attention for symptoms of dehydration, which may also require a doctor's attention.


I am happy to meet with any member of the community! Should you like to discuss questions, concerns, or any matter, please contact Ms. Melissa Johnson at 973-292-2250 ext. 6550 to schedule an appointment.
