We look forward to cheering on our MATH Bowl Team on February 22nd at the tournament held at Brookview Elementary School! We wish our students the best of luck. Additionally, we are in the final stretch of preparing for Part 1 of ISTEP testing, which begins February 26th. Lastly, I hope you'll mark your calendars for Thursday, March 1st - Family STEM Night! Students and families can participate in interesting STEM activities throughout the evening!
Enjoy your weekend!
PS: Our classes are still competing for top attendance percentages - please do your best to encourage your student to attend school! Of course, if your child is ill, we ask that you keep him/her home while their symptoms may be contagious.

Before & After School Care
The occasion may arise when the school district wants to recognize your child or your child’s school. This might include your child’s photo, your child’s name, or your child’s work in some of the district publications, newsletters, school district website or in staff training videos. We may also want to tell the media (including newspapers, and television and radio) about your child’s achievements. We never knowingly release information about a student to anyone who wants to use it for commercial/ political purposes. However, we will honor your request to not include your child in these types of recognition if you notify your child’s school office in writing that you do not want this type of information released.
Sonny Day Community Center

The pantry provides food, toiletries, cleaning products, school supplies and gently used clothing to families of Warren Township students. The pantry is open one Saturday morning and one Thursday evening per month.
