On March 6th, our Advisory Groups yet again engaged in various activities; this time, centered around the science-fiction adventure film, The Hunger Games. The advisory groups from each grade level participated and competed in an array of challenges to see which grade would be crowned the victors.
On March 10th, our 9th grade students traveled to our Sage Day Mahwah campus for their annual 8th/9th grade Articulation Day. The students engaged in a variety of social/physical/art-related activities, which included ice-breaker/team-building activities, along with some sports/music/art options. This has been a really nice tradition for the past few years and all students are treated to a pizza lunch before our students return back to Rochelle Park.
On March 19th, twenty-five of our students and six of our staff members took the bus into NYC to attend the off-Broadway show, The Little Prince. This is a touching new stage adaptation of the enchanting French fable.
Mrs. Janet Bertelli, our Clinical Director and Dr. David Strauss, staff clinician, hosted a support group for adoptive parents on the evening of March 19th.
On March 20th, school was closed for students, as Sage Day hosted a conference that was held at the Parsippany Hilton.
Sage Day at Rochelle Park will be hosting Spirit Week from March 23rd - March 27th. This is a week-long event where students have the opportunity to dress up in fun ways - to be unique, silly and creative. Students get together to show off their school spirit and support. The week wraps up with a student vs. staff basketball game on Friday. So, get ready for:
Monday - Pajama Day
Tuesday - Sportswear Day
Wednesday - "Merica" - wear Red, White & Blue
Thursday - Hat Day
Friday - School Spirit Day - wear your track shirts, SDF shirts and any other school clothing.
