Week of November 19th - 23rd
MESSAGE FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL
As we approach Thanksgiving, it is important that all of us remember our families and the importance of them to our lives. It is my hope that the entire Craig family has a wonderful Thanksgiving.
- This month in lieu of our holiday gift giving we are collecting for the Denville Social Service Food Pantry. A specific listing of their needs will be distributed in the VIP folder next week. A delegation from Leadership will deliver the sundries mid-December. Anything you are able to donate would be greatly appreciated.
- Grandfriends Day - November 20th is a prized annual tradition at the Craig school. Leadership will be hosting a bake sale outside the auditorium for anyone who would enjoy a sweet treat.
- Question of the Week - Each week we pose a question that students are able to answer if they choose. If they are correct their name goes into a lottery where they have a chance to have their name pulled at the end of the month for a lunch to be delivery to them. The more questions they answer correctly the higher their odds. Some questions are relatively easy while others require research. We discuss how to find answers, in the library and online and reliable sources. Theo Josephson and Logan Pakonis were our first monthly winners for the Library Question of the Week!

PACS is always open to new ideas and available for questions, guidance and volunteering opportunities. Please contact Lori Marano, PACS President at email@example.com or 973-760-7177.
Please give to The Craig School Annual Fund. We need to reach 100% participation. Your gift supports the people and the programs that make Craig so special! This means talented teachers, small glasses, reading specialist, up-to-date technology! These gifts are necessary because tuition doesn’t cover all the opportunities your student receives at Craig. We are asking you to give and invest in your child’s school.
If you have any questions, contact
Director of Development, Katie Burke, firstname.lastname@example.org or 973.334.1295 ext. 229
