WRS Pack Families,
Our students enjoyed their second STARS assembly last week. They are doing an awesome job learning life skills and how to be a STAR student!
We hope you enjoyed that extra hour of sleep today as we are now on Standard time! If you haven’t already done so, please set your clocks back one hour! This may be a shortened week for your children but it is a great opportunity to slow down and spend some quality time together as a family. With the approaching break, our staff has opportunities to learn more about our LinkIt Data System and dive deeper into assessment reviews as well as focus on our Equity goal. The New Jersey Education Association is hosting its annual conference in Atlantic City and this is also a wonderful platform to gain lots of information and best practices.
We have such talented staff members, please consider nominating a staff member for our 2020-2021 Teacher of the Year and Educational Service Professionals of the Year. You can do so by completing the link below:
