It’s hard to believe that we are moving into November with the close of the first marking period not far behind. As daylight savings time ends, we are quickly reminded of the changes coming our way! Temperatures are starting to dip, and we will soon be greeted with the first hard frost of the autumn. Although we cannot complain about the unseasonable fall temperature, it has taken a toll on or normal display of autumn colors. More trees are beginning to lose their leaves, and we are beginning to realize that the winter season will soon be upon us.
That being said I would like to remind everyone of the importance of maintaining up to date contact information in our emergency contact system. This system will again be the main source of information regarding early dismissals, delayed openings, and school closings during the school year.
Please keep in mind that school will be closed on Thursday, November 9th and Friday, November 10th for the NJEA Convention. I would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that we will be welcoming Grandparents on both November 14th and 15th from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. In addition, Wednesday, November 22nd will be an early dismissal day with students being dismissed at approximately 1:10 p.m. for the Thanksgiving holiday and school will be closed November 23rd and 24th.
