Reminder:  Flu Vaccine - New Jersey State Law requires all students under five years old as of October 1, 2015, who are attending school in New Jersey to receive the influenza vaccine before December 31, 2015. If your child is required to have this vaccine, please provide proof of his or her flu vaccination for our records. If we do not have proof that he or she has received the vaccine, we must exclude the child from school until he or she receives it.


Ancient Fire, our First LEGO League competitive robotics team, needs your help!  They would appreciate donations of uncrushed 12 oz. soda cans or 12 oz. plastic water bottles for use in their FLL project.  Please rinse all cans and bottles before bringing to the school office.  The Ancient Fire team appreciates your support!
