Mark your calendars for the following dates:
The Support of the Little Silver Community is Unwavering
The following “thank you” is on behalf of the Ince family:
There have been many dates in the recent past that will forever be ingrained in our brains, many of which we wish to forget. But September 16, 2017, is one that we will remember fondly and forever, as this was a day in which an entire community came together to rally and show support for our baby girl. The Love 4 Lily Softball Tournament was truly amazing and brought me to tears. To see all of your smiling faces and receive your hugs and words of encouragement was truly heartwarming, and Arabelle and I were completely lifted up by your love. Lily must have sensed it too because when we got back to CHOP that evening, Lily just about jumped out of bed to greet us. It was a magical moment! It was so wonderful seeing past and present students and families, and I wish I could have had the opportunity to speak with more of you. I was overwhelmed by your love and support which filled me with hope and strength that I later passed on to James and Lily as soon as we were reunited. We cannot begin to thank everyone enough for: your donations, well wishes, love, and prayers. A huge thank you to Doug Glassmacher and the LS Men's Softball League. Words cannot express our gratitude for being the recipients of such an unforgettable, uplifting day to honor our girl. Many thanks to the O'Hara family for their generosity. Thank you also to Dr. Kossack, Dr. Albert Devine and the rest of the administrative and board office teams. Your understanding, support, and love mean so much to us. Thank you to the staff of Point and Markham for kindly donating your time to play, volunteer, paint faces and nails, sell tickets and Lily gear. We are so lucky to belong to such a kind and loving community who would take us in and show us endless support. James and I would love to write each and every one of you a personalized, handwritten thank you note, but we are beginning to accept that this may be an impossibility! Thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts, for such a special day. Your generosity, prayers, kindness, good vibes, and moral support are unparalleled. We truly feel stronger as we move into the next phases of this journey with our powerful Lily army behind us, lifting us up with their incredible love. Thank you. Love for Lily!!!!
Lindsey, James, Lily, and Arabelle Ince
To be respectful
To be responsible
To be ready to learn
During Respect Week (October 2nd - 6th) each classroom will create a poster with a slogan or creative expression to illustrate one of the school rules. On Wednesday, October 4th, Sock It to Bullying Day, staff and students will be encouraged to wear mismatched socks to show their individuality, creativity, and acceptance of one another. On Friday, October 6th, Unity Day, all staff and students are encouraged to wear blue and white. The PTO Cultural Arts Committee has arranged for a special performance, “Mystery of the Character Surprise”, where students can see how making good choices should be their guide to being responsible young people. It will also provide students with strategies to differentiate between “tattling” versus “telling” an adult when something needs to be reported. Violence Awareness Week is October 16th - October 20th.

Parental Notification of Standardized Assessment
The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) is in the final phase of the state-required procurement process for the new Science assessments that will be administered this school year. The NJDOE expects the procurement process to be finalized in the coming weeks, at which time the NJDOE will release detailed information and guidance for districts on the new Science assessments.
These new Science assessments will be administered in Spring 2018 and will be aligned to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards for Science, which all school districts were required to implement by the 2017-18 school year. The Science assessments will be administered in grades 5 and 8. There will be no 4th grade Science assessment this school year.
