New Superintendent of Schools: On Monday, March 31st, the Board of Education approved Dr. Jerry Jellig as the new Superintendent of Schools in South Brunswick. Dr. Jellig is eager to begin his work in South Brunswick and we are eager to welcoming him to this wonderful community.

Thank you for your support and have a great weekend!

Mrs. Capes :)


It is very important that all contact information for your child is up to date. In the case of an emergency, such as your child being sick, it is critical that we have a way to contact the appropriate person.

If at any point during the school year something changes, such as your cell phone number, work number, emergency contacts, etc.., please email our school registrar, Mrs. Gallagher. ( In addition, if you will be on a trip and your children are staying with someone else, please provide the name, contact information, and length of trip to the main office. This must be in writing.



SPRING ENRICHMENT CLUBS will NOT meet next week due to the Early Release Days! The final week for these clubs will be the week following Spring Break.

Super Science & Cougar Studio applications are due on Friday, April 11th.

From Mrs. Guidice's Health Office

March is National Nutrition Month

As parents, you can do a lot to help your children learn healthy eating habits. Involving them in meal preparation and cooking can motivate them to try new foods and is a good way to spend time together as a family.

  • A healthy eating plan
  • Emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat or fat free milk products
  • Includes lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs and nuts
  • Is low in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, sodium/salt and added sugars. Dedicate yourself to a healthy March (and beyond) with these tips.

Eat Breakfast. There is no better way to start your day than with a healthy breakfast. Try oatmeal, sliced almonds and berries with yogurt, or a toaster waffle topped with fruit.

Make Half Your Plate Fruits and Vegetables. Fruits and veggies add color, flavor and texture plus vitamins, minerals and fiber to your plate. Make 2 cups of fruit and 2 ½ cups of vegetables your daily goal. Don’t let winter stop you from enjoying produce. It may be harder to find fresh options, but frozen and canned are great alternatives.

Enact Family Meal Time. Research show that family meals promote healthier eating. Plan to eat as a family at least a few times a week. Set a regular mealtime. Turn off the TV, phones and other electronic devices to encourage mealtime talk. Get kids involved in meal planning and cooking and use this time to teach them about good nutrition.
