Dear Parents and Guardians,
 
 
Good afternoon and a happy fall season to everyone! The boys and girls soccer teams began game play this week, school clubs are in full swing, and the yearly 8th grade  Haunted River Walk is right around the bend! We have a lot to look forward to, and a lot to be thankful for!
 
1. We are on the tail end of our initial round of academic student assessments for the fall. Depending on your child's grade level, they have completed either MAP, or Start Strong assessments, and in some instances, both. These assessments will drive student instruction and assist us in goal setting for both the long, and short term. Additionally, NJSLA test scores from the spring of 2022 are also being studied and utilized in this process.
 
2. By this time, the norms for behavior and the academic expectations in each of your children's classes are being, or have been established between the teachers and students. This Responsive Classroom based process allows for a student ownership stake in the expectations and responsibilities they will have throughout the year.  Please take the time to remind your children about their responsibilities both academically and socially as each and every student is capable of setting a positive example to those around them. 
 
3.  Please be advised that we have had many students leave the school grounds in the morning before school after being dropped off by parents. The students have been observed returning with Dunkin Donuts.  Please remind your children that once they arrive  at school, they should remain at school until dismissal at the end of the school day.  Also, as a reminder, teachers begin outside supervision duty at 8:25 am each day. 

4.   Look for an important Parent Square from Mrs. Citro with information on supporting the mental health and emotional well-being of our children.

Have a wonderful weekend!
Mr. Veit
