Weekly Update: October 23 - October 27, 2017

Dear Parents,
   There will be a  Dress Down Day this Friday, and donations will be sent to High Tor Animal Shelter.
   The children had a great time at the Halloween Dance on Thursday. The costumes were fantastic, and everybody was in great spirits.
   This week the 8th grade will hear presentations by AHA, Bergen Catholic, and Paramus Catholic. If your child is considering a high school, it is wise to make a reservation and spend the day. Please note, it is the student's responsibility to find out what classwork was missed and to complete the homework.
   We will measure for caps and gowns this week. Only 8 months till graduation!!

Have a good week.
