HARDING SCIENCE FAIR, AND ROBOTICS!

On Tuesday night, February 23, Harding Township held their annual grades 5 - 8 Science Fair. Madison's own Luis Largo and Monica Brady were judges and had some wonderful interactions with their future students!


The MHS Robotics team put on a nice display and were inspiring the next generation of Robotics enthusiasts!


The Robotics Team will be competing in the NJ State Championship Tournament at NJIT on Sunday the 28th. Qualifying matches start at 11am and the Semi-Finals are scheduled at 3pm.

BUDGET - CHECK YOUR ITEMS!!

The Ed-Data orders must be submitted by March 11th. (That's my job.) If you need to make any modifications to your original requests please do so by March 3rd, I will be finalizing everything shortly thereafter. Try to think of everything, I expect to be more limited next year in terms of what we can order after the year begins.

The link to our 2016 budget spreadsheets is here.
