Students can also share a performance that celebrates and/or teaches about their cultures.

Bring your Child to Work Day:

If your child will be absent on April 28th for “Bring your Child to Work Day,” please complete the following form and return it by April 25th:


2022-2023 Class Lists

Creation of class lists is an important responsibility that teachers, school counselors, and administrators take very seriously. A great deal of time and effort goes into creating classes which are well balanced academically and socially. Many factors are considered in making placement decisions. Because it is not as simple as placing a student with a teacher without considering all of the dynamics of each class and the individual and collective needs of the students, the Flemington Raritan School District does not honor parental requests for specific teachers. Parents may write a letter stating specific needs that their child has which may be considered when placing the student. The letter should state facts to consider and not request a teacher. Please submit any letters to Mrs. Glaab and Mrs. Braynor by May 1, 2022.
