A note from our Co-Presidents

We hope everyone had a great long weekend!

Many of you have asked about the extra Honeywell's you have been receiving when school is cancelled or delayed. We have learned that the school district is currently testing a new alert system so both systems are currently being used. If we receive any more information we will be sure to pass it along!

Fifth Grade Parents - Don’t forget it’s not too late to upload photos from 3rd, 4th and 5th grade for the yearbook. See below for more information. The kids love seeing themselves in the pages of the yearbook so your help is appreciated!

Despite the cold weather Spring IS coming and with it, lots of fun activities that we will need volunteers for! These include the parent/teacher softball game, color run, art/science fair, 5th grade party and field day! If you would like to help out in the planning of any of these events please let us know!

Friendly reminder that Spirit Day is this Friday! Have a great week!

ATTENTION 5th GRADE!
Share your memories with our Yearbook Staff

Please contribute images to the  5th Grade  folder ( interstate.pixami.com/ISSMaster/home3/Public.jsp .) for the yearbook. We want to ensure that each child has more than just their school picture in the yearbook. We can not guarantee that all images will be used, depending on how many are submitted. 

Electronic photos submitted using this link are preferred, but we will accept hard copies sent to Patrick Hassan (Daly/Amsallen) or Jackson Deutsch (Folmar-Harris/Badenhausen). Please include jpeg or png files only. Please label the photo as clearly as possible with the grade and event. Examples: 3rdHalloween, 4thWinterConcert. Group photos preferred. Events must be school related but can include girl scouts and boy scouts.


You can access the uploader through the yearbook landing page at  interstate.pixami.com/ISSMaster/home3/Public.jsp .


Thank you,

Vaping and E-Cigarettes: A Primer for Parents, Thursday, March 7th (FMS, 7:00-8:00 pm)
Rebecca Tritt, an experienced therapist and substance abuse specialist working with the New Jersey Children's System of Care, Daytop Village, and High Focus Centers, will educate parents about the critical issue of vaping and e-cigarettes among teens. This issue, which according to many, has reached epidemic levels, will touch upon the devices themselves, their impact on the brain, and how parents can best prevent use by their children.
