THE CRAIG SCHOOL

WEEKLY NEWSLETTER
NOTES FROM THE DIRECTOR

Last week, we celebrated “Read Across America”!  Our snack time was courtesy of PACS and a handful of High School Parents who came in the day before and built these snack masterpieces.  The day wrapped up with quiet reading time that included multiple sleeping bags and even a tent!  

Check out our Read Across America pictures in our photo gallery at the bottom for the documented proof! 

Here is to another great week at CSHS,

Dr. Cap

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

 Senior Blake Accepted to Stockton University:  We are proud to share that CSHS Senior Blake has been accepted to Stockton University! Blake is considering becoming a Stockton University Osprey based on their strong computer science program and that it lets him stay in NJ! 

Stockton was founded in 1969 and named after Richard Stockton, a Revolutionary Era legislator and one of New Jersey’s signatories of the Declaration of Independence.  Its main campus is located in Galloway, NJ but they also have a brand-new satellite campus on the boardwalk in downtown Atlantic City, where students who live in the beachfront dorms have access to internship opportunities within the hospitality, tourism, and entertainment sector.  

 

Stockton is a public university with approximately 10,000 students between its undergraduate and master’s programs and offers over 40 academic programs across the liberal arts and science fields.  The university offers a Learning Access Program (LAP) for LD students seeking accommodations and support services. Many of the students on the main campus in Galloway enjoy walking around the trails and taking a boat out on Lake Fred, which is right in the center of campus.

ACADEMIC HIGHLIGHTS

 High School Student Council 2022: We are proud to announce the CSHS Student Council for this school-

  • Jules (12th Grade): Jules is a current member of both the NAHS and the National Honor Society.  She is also a founding member of our Meditative Coloring Club.  Her goals for this year are to reignite the energy at CSHS and reinstate potential field trips as incentives for students.
  • Nicole (11th Grade): Nicole is an active member of many CSHS sports and intramural leagues ranging from the basketball team to the tailgate league.  She is also involved in the school's community service program (recycling) and various clubs (bocci and 4-square volleyball).  Her goals for this school year are to raise students’ school spirits and be a positive influence on her classmates
  • Josh (11th Grade): Josh is also an active member of the CSHS sports program and club system.  He has been a member of the robotics club for the past two years and gives of his time constantly to both internal and external community service well beyond the required 10 hours annually.  Josh's goal is to create more fun opportunities for students and add some new student events.
  • Grace (10th Grade): Grace is a member of the National Art Honor Society, the yearbook committee, and a CSHS representative in the Global Citizenship Challenge.  Her goals for this year are to give the students a voice and increase their involvement in making decisions for the school that impact students.   

Each council member went through a rigorous vetting process that involved application submissions, student interviews, and teacher endorsements so congrats to our Student Council.  

They have already begun their representation of the student voice  by coordinating a prom vote on this year's prom theme (Hollywood: Red Carpet was the winner!) as well as the design for next year’s student assignment book!

IMPORTANT INFO

Ordering  Lunch Delivery for April: 

  To register to place orders or to re-order,  go to www.myfooddays.com  

 

Just an FYI that next month (our April food orders), MyFoodDays will be adding a 99¢ per order processing fee.  Previously, this charge was only applied if an order was under $25.  Even with the fee, they are still the best deal in the online food ordering industry for schools.  If you have any questions, reach out to our  Lunch Program Chair and Parent, Amanda Jahn at amandajahn77@gmail.com 

 

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.
