Principal's Message

It feels great to be back in school full time and our students are learning so much! We are so excited to see them settle into their routines, make new friends, and enjoy being in their classrooms. We are looking forward to many fun events in October including the Week of Respect, Red Ribbon Week, Peace Week, Picture Day, the Scholastic Book Fair, and our annual Halloween Parade which we will host in person this year!

Important Message: School Yearbook Volunteers Needed!

For many years, our school yearbook has been created with the help of PTA parent volunteers. The PTA is in need of volunteers to help with the 21-22 yearbook. These volunteers would come assist with taking photographs at special school events, and putting the yearbook together through digital software. If you are interested in helping the PTA please email me directly at tbowles@lumberton.k12.nj.us. We are currently allowing fully vaccinated and masked volunteers to visit our building for special events.
