Family Fun Reading Night!
Please check out the attached flyer for our Family Fun Reading Night on Monday, February 27, 2017 from 6:30 to 7:30 organized by our Student Council!

Read Across America Week
This week is the NEA sponsored Read Across America Week. We have a schedule of activities to promote reading!

One Book, One School – The Wizard of Oz
Thank you to the FTEA for sponsoring One Book, One School. The book is….The Wizard of Oz! Did you know that the Wizard of Oz started as a book? Fun fact: Dorothy’s shoes were silver – not red. Red showed up better on the movie screen than silver. There were fourteen books in the series. We are giving out 50 copies of the book to the first 50 families that make the request. The culminating activity will take place on Thursday, April 17, 2017 – the day before Spring Break. More information to follow!

Kindergarten Registration
If you have or know of a child who will be five years old on or before October 1, 2017, please contact the school at (908) 689-2958. Once you call, you will receive paperwork to be completed by April 13. Kindergarten registration will take place on May 31! Can’t wait to see some new Fireballs!
