THOUGHT OF THE DAY...

   

Walk away from anything that gives you bad vibes.  There is no need to explain, or make sense of it.  It's your life.  Do what makes you happy!

COMING SOON!!!

   

Attention Parents, Teachers, & Students!

COMING SOON!!!

We are excited to announce that we will soon be using LivingTree to stay engaged and connected as a community. LivingTree is a private and secure network that allows two-way sharing (messages, photos, files, events, volunteering) within each class; and it will serve as your one-stop-location for all school and class information pertaining to your family. You’ll be hearing a lot more about LivingTree very shortly!

Parents should have received instructions on connecting to our private network in the mail last month.  Be sure to download the free mobile app to easily access (or share!) information wherever you are
 

Parent/Guardian Survey

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Our school is participating in a Digital Learning Readiness Report for New Jersey schools. The NJTRAx Digital Learning Readiness Report will be based on the responses of individuals in six different roles within the school community – Student, Parent/Guardian, Teacher, School Administrator, Information Technology Coordinator, and Educational Technology Coordinator. Your student’s class has been asked to participate. We are also asking you to participate as a Parent/Guardian. Your participation is extremely important. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly at aandreatos@acboe.org.

Please access the survey via the following link.
