Superintendent's Message-November 2021
I mention this in this months edition for several reasons. Not every student is an athlete or involved in an athletic program, but whether you are an athlete or a spectator, something remarkable happened this fall. People came together. The accomplishments of our student athletes rallied the community and allowed Cedar Grove to be proud of being a Panther. For the first time ever, the Cedar Grove High School Football team took the North 1 Regional State Title at MetLife under the direction of Coach Robert Gogerty. For the first time ever, the Cedar Grove Boys Soccer team took the title of North 2 Group 1 State Sectional Championship this season under the direction of Coach Michael Moussab. For the first time ever, the Cedar Grove HIgh School Tennis Team secured the SEC Colonial Division under Coach Heather Dapuzzo. The Girls Soccer team secured the SEC Colonial Division under Coach Tom Moogan. Tara Smurla became Essex County Champion (1st place) NJSIAA North 2 Group 1 State Section Champion (1st place) NJSIAA Group 1 - 5th Place for the Cross Country Season.

Last month, we shared that the survey of the property at 520 Pompton Avenue was in the completion stages. This stage has been completed with information that is beneficial to LRP. Through the survey, the Cedar Grove Board of Education was able to find that our property lines were defined allowing us to realize more property than previously thought. This will help in the design of traffic flow on and off the property while Dan Dressell, district architect, works on several concept plans for the future. Our next steps are to meet with the township to present several concepts for this traffic pattern to begin next steps in the planning stages. More information will be forthcoming in the new year.
