We have been involved with Crayola Create Ed project for the last year. It is a teacher professional development program aimed at increasing the use of the arts and multi-literacies to build student insight and creativity. It is directly tied to our building based STEAM initiative. We have had great results and the staff has embraced the training and methods! I am very proud of their hard work and enthusiasm.
I am so pleased to announce that we are finalists for a school grant through this program. This grant will help fund additional opportunities for the teachers to bring exciting educational experiences to their classroom and for us to add a family arts night to our repertoire.
We must have parent permission for our students to be photographed if we should win before we enter the next phase. We are sending home the slips today-please send back the slips on Monday.
I truly appreciate your help in this area!
Thank you in advance.
We are celebrating our 90th birthday this year! Please save the date -Harrison’s 90th Birthday Party will take place on November 12th ! We will have activities for the students as well as a parent presentation! More info to follow.

Don’t forget we have two Muffins and More meetings scheduled for next week on Sept 17th!
One in the morning at 10:00 and another at 6:00 before our PTA meeting. We hope this accommodates our communities’ varying family schedules! Please RSVP to Mrs. Fernandez at firstname.lastname@example.org or 973-535-8000, ext. 8111.
