FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK

Today, we will welcome the Cambridge graduating class of 2020! Our incoming Kindergarten students will join us for orientation today, as they prepare to start school in September.


Congratulations to our 3rd Grade students for a wonderful "Coming to America" celebration! The dances and songs were fantastic. Equally amazing were the incredible artifacts and research notes the students shared in the classroom. Thank you to all of the teachers who made this a special cross-curricular event!


The Tour de South Brunswick is tomorrow, Saturday, May 31st, at South Brunswick High School. Registration starts at 8am!! All students who are pre-registered should have already received a temporary tattoo for the event. Please wear this tomorrow to show your Cougar Pride. If you are still interested in joining us, you can register tomorrow at the event. Just bring your bike!


For all parents volunteering for Field Day, please check your email later this weekend. Mrs. O'Brien will be sending out the confirmations and job assignments. Thank you for offering your time!!!


Finally, please join us for the Family Picnic on June 6th! Registration forms are available on the online Friday Folder! It will be a great night of fun!


Thank you for your support and enjoy the weekend.


Mrs. Capes :)
