NJDOE Annual School Self-Assessment Grades Released: [click to view Report Card]

During the first three years of implementation of the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act, our district has made great strides to address harassment, intimidation and bullying and improve our school climates and cultures to be safe, respectful, responsible and full of P.R.I.D.E.  The Self-Assessment helped our schools and district see that great kids and very supportive parents are among our many strengths. Throughout this year our district has been working to increase parent understanding of a variety of childhood and teenage developmental issues and their impact on both learning and HIB through a variety of parent “coffee chats.”  We enjoyed seeing you in October and November and look forward seeing you at the events planned for 2015!

  • Oct. 20th – HIB, Moving Beyond The Law
  • Nov. 17th – If These Are The Best Years Of My Life, Why Am I So Stressed?
  • Jan. 26th – PARCC Parent Workshop
  • Jan. 28th – (Drug and Alcohol focus), hosted off-site by Monmouth Medical’s Untenberg Children’s Center.
  • March 23rd – Fishbowl Event, Grade 6 – 8 Parents and Students will learn how parents and teenagers really feel about a variety of important issues in their lives
