Craig School New Jersey

HS Week of May 2nd



On Saturday, May 21st, The Craig School will be hosting a very special walk for a very special member of our school community.  It is a walk to honor Mrs. Janet Cozine and the impactful role she has played in the lives of so many Craig families that have come through our school doors over the past 42 years.  Why a walk you ask?  The answer is routine.  In addition to her daily commitment to all of the students and teachers of the Craig School, Mrs. Cozine also had a daily routine of walking the Boulevard of Mt. Lakes.  That being said, what better way to honor her than to join her on this special walk!  


Activities will kick off at 10:00 am on our Mountain Lakes campus with morning greetings and some pre-walk music followed by a stroll down the Boulevard alongside Mrs. Cozine.  After the short symbolic walk, we will end up back on campus to continue our celebration with prizes and a visit by the Kona Ice Truck.  The only thing that will make this day a little more special is if all of the students, families, and teachers of the Craig School High School are there so mark your calendars for Saturday, May 21st at 10 AM.  You can RSVP at 

See you there,

Dr. Cap

PACS- Faculty Appreciation Week 2022:  Each year in May, schools around the country celebrate Faulty Appreciation Week.  At Craig, our PACS has designated the week of May 2nd as our Appreciation week and has planned some wonderful events and treats for our fantastic teachers and staff to show our appreciation for all that they do.  You can help PACS celebrate our teachers and faculty by sending in a dessert for our May 4th (WEDS) faculty luncheon.  Here is what PACS has planned for this week:

  • Monday: Candy Buffet 
  • Tuesday: Cookies 
  • Wednesday: Colonial Food Truck Lunch at the HS Campus
  • Thursday: Colonial Food Truck Lunch at the LS/MS Campus
  • Friday: Doughnuts and Coffee 


Dear High School Parents,

PACS has organized a luncheon for the high school faculty as it was outlined in last week's newsletter.  It has come to our attention that there is no sweet to end the lunch.  That is where our parents can help.  We have created a sign up genius for parents who wish to bring something.  The high school faculty is having lunch on Wednesday May 4th, so desserts can be dropped off either Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning. If you have any questions, please reach out to Amanda Jahn at


Log onto our store, browse our items, order for your student and your family and The Craig School receives 20% of the order! All of the proceeds from this go towards the community events that we have planned throughout the year for you and your students to enjoy!


PACS Executive Committee information along with membership forms are on our website.

It is not too late to join our membership drive, please email Angelina Bright, PACS PRESIDENT at

Craig School Emergency Contact System:  The Craig School uses a multi-tiered communication system that provides to our families, the highest level of certainty that you are made aware of any change in the opening or closing status of Craig Lower Middle School and Craig High.  Our various communication tiers include:  

  • Craig Notification Call System:  The Craig Notification call is a voice activated system so you need to say HELLO once and allow the system to activate.  If you say HELLO followed by another HELLO in rapid succession, the system will not activate and not start the recorded message.  If you are unable to take the call, it will leave a message. 
  • School Email Blast:  We will send out an email blast to all of our families and students.  Keep in mind that emails are dependent on the internet so if that’s down, so are emails.
  • Text  Dr. Cap:  As a last resort to check school status, you can always text Dr. Cap at (973)534-9054.
