In Cresskill Schools, it is our goal to remain responsive to the unique needs of all of our students. This week begins the holy month of Ramadan, and Cresskill community is helping to observe this month by holding a crescent lantern event at the library this evening. The invite is attached and all are welcome. Additionally, it is important to be responsive to the needs of our students that observe this month. Ramadan sometimes includes fasting of not only food but also water. We encourage parents and students that are observing the month to reach out and partner with us in ensuring a fruitful observance. Sometimes minor adjustments can have a major positive impact for our students. We look forward to helping.

Hello again Merritt families. Power is back on in the building. The YWCA after school program will be running this afternoon as well as the HSA after school classes.

Hi Merritt families. The building is currently without power. We will be dismissing as normal, but all after school classes and the YWCA after school program are cancelled for this afternoon. We will be keeping students in those programs in the gym until they are picked up by a parent.

The fifth grade Revolutionary War songs were too good to contain to just class, so we turned lunch into a concert today. “All I Want for Christmas is Freedom” was a huge hit!

One of the most important things we do in public schools is prepare students to be active citizens. So what better way to “practice democracy” than to have a debate when we disagree on something! Thank you to all the fifth graders who presented today and made excellent arguments for why their lunch period should be longer!
