Principal's Message

We recognize that many establishments are lifting the mask requirement. Please be aware that this does not include schools. Governor Murphy has communicated that masks must continue to be worn through the remainder of the school year.


As we approach warmer weather please remember to send your student in to school with a water bottle. They will continue to have a mask break each day.


There was a community information session held on Thursday, May 27th that reviewed information for planning the 2021-2022 school year. The presentation can be viewed by clicking here.

Transform Learning

We recently applied for a grant to build an outdoor pavilion to the right of LMS and entered a contest to win 30 chromebooks to help "transform learning."

We are one of eight finalists for the chromebooks!

All you need is a google account to vote - https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfXVS73tTS6HF9ysuPy32alaIk9JZoVu0zIGqJmIUENvbfKag/viewform - you get one vote from each and every google account that you have. Voting is open until June 4th and the winners be announced on June 7th.

Here are the all of the Finalist Videos as well as the Contest Description.

Feel free to post this on social media and forward this email to friends and family. Winning this would be a "breath of fresh air" for our students.

Thanks for voting!
