Welcome to April and the start of the spring season. There will be a number of important school events that will take place this month. The state mandated PARCC testing started the last week of March (students in grades 3-6) and will continue into the month of April. The PARCC tests are aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and were created to measure the students' ability to apply their knowledge of concepts rather then just memorizing facts. Please make sure that your children are best prepared for the test by having a good night's sleep and breakfast during their testing time. The N.J. CAP Program (Child Assault Prevention) will present a workshop for parents of students in Grades K-1 on April 6th at 7 pm in the F.W. Gavlak Media Center. Parents are encouraged to attend. The CAP program will be presented to K-1 students on April 18, 19, & 20th. On April 20-21st, students in Grade 6 will again be visiting the Buehler Science Center with their Science teacher Mr. Gaydos. The students will participate in a simulated trip to Mars, in learning about our planets and solar system. In ending the month, students in Grade 6 will be the recipient of the A.D.V. (Alternatives to Domestic Violence) Program on April 28th. ADV is a division of the Bergen County Department of Human Services and provides a full range of workshops for middle and high school students through their PTE services (Prevention Through Education).
