Superintendent's Message



There is a feeling of gratitude in the air during the month of November and all are thankful for family, friends, schools, and community as we look forward to the Thanksgiving season.  Let’s look ahead at a few highlights:

conferenceElementary Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held at Godwin & Highland Schools later this month.  Research indicates that parent/family involvement is a critical factor in student success and teachers look forward to this annual collaborative opportunity with parent partners.  For more information on making the most of this valuable meeting with your child’s teacher, access this link from the New Jersey Department of Education’s website: http://www.nj.gov/education/parents/articles/ParentTeacherConferenceTips.htm

theather masks A hallmark of the fall season is MPHS’s annual drama production.  This year, our talented scholar-thespians will appear in a charming tale, Almost, Maine, by John Cariani.  A delightful midwinter night's dream, the production takes place in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the town’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways.  Knees are bruised.  Hearts are broken. But, the bruises heal and the hearts mend—almost!  Performances are Friday, November 20th and Saturday, November 21st at 7:30 pm.  General Admission tickets are $10 and $5 for students and staff.

trophyThe MPHS Marching Band is nearing the end of another exciting round of band competitions and scholar-athletes are beginning the playoff season for fall sports.  We wish all our students the best of luck as they move ahead in a variety of challenging contests.  Please be sure to check the district website for playoff game schedules.

Wishing you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
