  • Iowa Test results will be made available to us within the next week or so and will be sent home as soon as we can following our debriefing at the schools’ office in Newark.
  • Our Field Days are scheduled for next week and we still need some volunteers for the upper grade day on the 9th.  Parents of students in grades 3-8 are needed.  Please contact the school office or Donna Murphy if you are able to help.
  • Our second annual talent show will take place this Friday evening and I am sure it will be amazing.  In addition to our incredibly talented students, there will be a guest appearance by the band Council!  Spots are still available, so please join us if you are able.
  • On Wednesday evening, May 15th, Ms. Molino, Ms. Rambaran, Mrs. Peterson and Mrs. Fitzgibbons will be scooping ice cream at Ben and Jerry’s on Washington Street in support of the Hoboken Family Alliance’s special program to raise funds for their summer bicycle camp.  Please come out that evening at 6:00 and order up some ice cream from our amazing teachers!

Thank you and God Bless you!
