YOUR PTA DOLLARS AT WORK!

ELEMENTARY SKATE NIGHT: Many thanks to Megan Scanielo for organizing the PTA funded Elementary Skate Night! We had a great turnout and the kids had a blast this weekend!


RUTGERS SCIENCE BUS: Our 6th and 7th Grade students had an opportunity to attend a lab on the Rutgers Science Bus . Students delved into an investigation of New Jersey marine ecology; understanding the animals, habitat and environmental issues of the Raritan Bay and surrounding areas. Students explored food webs, water quality and the human impact effects as students looked into the causes of a hypothetical fish kill event discovering the concept of eutrophication.

Next week, our 8th grade students will attend the bus!
