New Jersey Student Learning Assessments (NJSLA) | May 16 - 20

Students in grade 3, 4 and 5 will be taking the New Jersey state tests in math and reading next week. We will be following a special schedule to accomodate for the testing blocks.


Please make every effort to have your students (3rd, 4th, 5th graders) here on time, prior to 8:45 am since we will begin testing promptly at 9 am.


Please also make every effort not to schedule any doctor's appointments during the week of testing.


Lastly and most importantly, if your child is sick and has symptoms, please DO NOT send them to school. We will offer make-up sessions the following week.

News alert! It has just been discovered that there are NO MORE TACOS left anywhere in the world. This is a huge problem because, as you know, dragons love tacos. If only there was a way for the dragons to travel back in time, to before tacos went extinct. Then they could grab lots of tacos and bring them back! It’s the perfect plan, as long as there’s no spicy salsa. You remember what happened last time . . .
