Moment of Silence in Memory of Carmen Guarino
Millburn recently lost a wonderful educator and coach. I would like to ask for a moment of silence in memory of Carmen Guarino and our heartfelt sympathies to his family, friends and district colleagues.

Honoring our Retiring Staff
I want to send a special thanks to over 450 collective years of service to all of the staff members who are retiring. All the best to them in the next phase of their lives and we wish them well for a wonderful summer as they retire.

District App/BOE Headlines
The District Communications & Community Outreach Coordinator, Nancy Dries and Director of Technology, Evan Abramson and I have been working toward the final version of the district app. This evening I’d like to share the app and a few of the features as well as another digital tool we have created as a follow up to the Board meetings entitled, BOE Headlines.
