Sussex Ave: News That You Can Use
Dear Sussex Students, Parents and Guardians,
I cannot believe that we have 19 school days to go! This school year has zoomed by. We had a very busy week. Monday we had the pleasure of listening to the 4th and 5th grade chorus. They were absolutely amazing! I enjoyed listening to them sing about strong character as well as singing modern contemporary music. There is a wealth of talent in our building and community.
We have successfully completed our NJSLA Testing for ELA and Math. This coming week we have the last two days of testing for this school year to complete. Grade 5 students will be taking the New Jersey State Learning Assessment for Science (NJSLA-S) on May 28 and May 29th. Visitors will not be permitted in the building during testing times.
I hope everyone enjoyed the unofficial start of Summer while reflecting on the meaning behind Memorial Day. My heart is filled with gratitude for those fought, and their families, of loved ones lost while serving in our country. Thank you for the ultimate sacrifice.
Have a wonderful week!
