At first glance Broad Street students appeared to have lost their minds on March 21st. Upon closer examination they were just celebrating World Down Syndrome by wearing "odd" or "silly socks". Kindergarten students received a very special treat, Geeanna from Mrs. Beckett's class mom came in to explain Down Syndrome and just how much Geeanna is like every other student in Kindergarten.
Congratulations to fifth grader Nula Leaf! She was recognized by the Greenwich and Paulsboro Community Advisory Panel (GAPCAP) at their dinner/meeting held on March 6th. As the second place winner in their annual essay and poster contest, 'Celebrate Chemistry', Nula received a Barnes and Noble gift card. Well Done, Nula!!
At the regular meeting of the Greenwich Township Board of Education on Monday, March 10, 2014 the school calendar was discussed and confirmed. The calendar that was distributed in September 2013 indicated that any make-up days would be in the following order: June 17, June 18, June 19, and April 17. This most unusual winter had us cancel school six times as of this date; which made it necessary to also include June 20 and June 23 as school days. It is state law that students must attend school for 180 days.
Please note the following highlights of this 2013-2014 school calendar:
April 16 - Full Day of School
April 17 - School is in session
Early Dismissal Spring Conferences
April 18-21 - Spring Break
May 26 - No School – Memorial Day
June 12-16 - Full Days of School
June 19-23 - Early Dismissal
June 23 - Ends 4th Marking Period
June 23 - Report Cards Issued
June 23 - Tentative Last Day of School
June 24, 25, - If we have future cancellations days will be added in 26, 27 that order.
Below please find a copy of the revised calendar. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.
