Let's Celebrate with a Student Shout Out!

Beginning June 1, the district invites families of kindergarten, 4th, 6th and 8th grade students to submit a photo or video congratulating their child on his or her milestone year. This is one special way the district can help to celebrate kindergarten graduates, 4th- and 6th-grade move-up transitions and 8th-grade promotion. These photo and video messages will be posted on the district Facebook page through the last day of school. Parents may include their child’s first name only and grade. The name of the school may be omitted by the parent to ensure security and privacy of student information. Photos and videos can be e-mailed to lbruhn@frsd.k12.nj.us.

Thank you, FREA!

Our district shares a special thank you with the Flemington-Raritan Education Association for these signs of support for our students. We so deeply miss our amazing students and our exceptional staff members.
