June, 2016

Dear Parents/Guardians:

As the school year comes to a close, I would like to thank our students and staff who have worked very hard to accomplish their goals for the school year.  I would also like to take the time to thank our PTA for all of their help throughout the year.  Their assistance with our programs and fundraisers has been outstanding and I look forward to our partnership again next year. 

I am happy to announce that last week, the Jazz Band, Vocal Ensemble and Bracktones attended the “Music in the Parks” competition at Six Flags Great Adventure and had an Outstanding Day!  The Jazz Band, under the direction of Frank Constantine, came in first place with a rating of “Superior.” Jazz Band member Cassie Gaeta, 8th grade, received an outstanding soloist award. Our Vocal Ensemble, under the direction of Mrs. Bense, came in first place with a rating of “Excellent.” Our show choir, the Bracktones, under the direction of Mr. Wald, also came in 1st place with a rating of Excellent!  Congratulations to Mr. Constantine, Mrs. Bense, Mr. Wald and the Jazz Band, Vocal Ensemble and Bracktones.  Great Job!

During the summer months our students are required to do summer reading and math assignments.  These assignments will be on the district website in near future.  Sports camp registration forms and fall sports sign-up information is also available on-line as well.
