Our Spring Color Run is our largest fundraiser. We can't organize this without the help of our school community.

Help is needed to contact local businesses to donate prizes for our students. If you can help, please contact   

We will also accept parent donations to use as prizes such as gift cards, unopened/unused age appropriate toys/crafts, etc. If you would like to donate prizes, please send to the office marked Color Run prize donation.

We also need mini water bottles, coolers (to borrow) and ice on the day of the event.

If you wish to order a white t-shirt for your child to wear during the Color Run, the deadline to turn in your form and payment is April 30th.

Please don't forget to send in your pledge money to be entered into our prize raffle!

School Store-Volunteers needed

Our last school store of the year is Friday, May 3rd. We need parents volunteers to help for 30 minute slots between 11am and 2pm.

Chef's Night Out

Lovey's Pizza is supporting Sussex Ave School on  Thursday, May 2nd , by donating 10% of their proceeds from all Sussex families to the school. This includes both lunch and dinner.

Call them for pick up or delivery 973-455-0677.

Please mention Sussex Ave School when ordering and tell your friends and neighbors!
Volunteers needed!!

Are you interested in volunteering a few moments of your time this year or next? In addition to the urgent need for Color Run Volunteers (see above), we also need parents for the following positions:

  • Spirit Wear
  • Fall Fundraiser
  • 5th Grade Yearbook
  • Box Tops

Many of these positions do not require a lot of time and can be done outside of work hours. If you are interested but don't want to handle the entire position by yourself, you can recruit a friend to help you or let the current HSA board know and we will find a second person to assist. Thank you for your help! The HSA could not run any of its programs without the support of our school families!
