March has always been an exciting transition month, one that helps us to shake off the early nights and snowy weather associated with winter as we move to the longer days and warmer weather of spring. Other events, such as college basketball and spring training for baseball help to usher out the winter and for at least one day this month, we all hope for a little luck of the Irish.
I would like to highlight a few events that will take place in the month of March. We will celebrate “Pi Day” with Family Math Night on Tuesday, March 14 th beginning at 6:00 PM. This is a chance for students to come out to school and participate in math activities while also choosing which staff member they would like to pie. The Board of Education will also hold their monthly meeting on Tuesday, March 19 th , beginning at 7:00 PM. At this meeting, the Board of Education will present the preliminary budget for the 2019-2020 school year. On March 20 th , the school will hold a registration event for parents of 8 th grade students who are planning on attending Neptune High School for the 2019-2020 school year. Computers and translation services will be provided to help support families.
I would also like to take this opportunity to remind parents that if your child is sick, we encourage students to remain at home for the school day. The end of the winter is a dangerous time for students to spread illness throughout the school, and it is important that students who are ill to remain at home. Additionally, if your child has a fever above 100 degrees, they must remain home for 24 hours.
Finally, I would like to personally congratulate Mrs. Zylinski on her recent appointment to Supervisor of Special Services. Mrs. Zylinski has excelled in her role as School Social Worker for the past 14 years, and her knowledge of our students, our staff, and our programs will certainly help to build on our current success. Mrs. Zylinski was selected from a pool of very qualified candidates and I am certain that she will excel in her new role.
