WARREN, NJ – The Middle School field trips will continue. The school trips and fundraising policies of the Warren Township School District were among the topics discussed at this week's Board of Education meeting.
After hearing from the public and the Middle School Principal, Robert Comba, the board unanimously voted not to change the current fundraising policy which includes a magazine sale that is soon to launch.
All agreed that the middle school trips are "a tradition, and a right of passage".
New Jersey School Board Representative Charlene Zoerb also gave a presentation on parent involvement in the schools. She discussed how parent involvement can be integrated into the curriculum and challenged the board to redefine what parent involvement means and to give parents the tools to help their students.
“We do have the power to help our kids be the most successful,” Zoerb said.
Superintendent Tami Crader announced the resignation of board member John DeBellis. Information regarding the replacement application process will be communicated soon, she said.
Dr. Crader urged the public to "like" the Warren Township Board of Education on Facebook and to look for informational meetings to be scheduled regarding the new math curriculum, Go Math! For working parents, a district wide presentation will be on October 17 at 7 p.m. at Woodland School.
