Craig School New Jersey

HS Week of November 29th



Assuming you are receiving this on Friday, we hope you are still enjoying your Thanksgiving and have found the time to game plan what to do with all of those leftovers! Speaking of game planning, it is also time to start game planning your “Black Friday!”  We did a little research on the origins of Black Friday and found that it is a retail term coined in the 1960’s to officially kick off the Christmas Shopping season.   “Black” refers to stores moving from the “red” to the “black,” while Friday means….well, Friday.  


On that note, have an amazing Black Friday,

Dr. Cap

The Craig High School National Honor Society and Craig Middle School Council Team Up to Collect Toys for Area Children:  The CSHS National Honors Society is partnering with the Craig Middle School Leadership Council this upcoming holiday season to support a local toy drive for children in need in our area. We are reaching out to our Craig High parent community to join us as we work together to collect gifts for a toy drive through Denville Social Services.  The age range we will be collecting for are boys and girls aged 11, 12, and 13.  Gifts should be unwrapped, appropriate for Middle School Students and no more than $25 in cost (okay, a little more would be okay).  For ideas, you can do what we do.  Go to Amazon Gift Suggestions for Children Ages 11-13

Our two-week collection will start-up upon our return from break (November 29th) and run through Friday, December 10th.  This means you can take advantage of the upcoming Black Friday and all of the amazing sales out there!  All gifts can be brought to room 102 where our NHS Advisor, Ms. Skerker will collect them.  As always, we appreciate your support & partnership for this worthy holiday cause!  



Format for our VIRTUAL December Parent-Teacher (PT) Conferences: Here is how our Dec 8-10 Virtual PT Conferences will work-

  • In early December, you will receive an email with a schedule with specific times and specific zoom links to each of your teen’s teachers whose classes meet 5-days a week.
  • You will click on a Zoom Link at the designated time and that will bring you to the Zoom waiting room where the teacher will invite you to join the virtual meeting
  • You will have 4-5 specific zoom links and each meeting will be for 10 minutes. 
  • In order to maximize your time, you are welcome to email any specific topics that you would like to discuss to that specific teacher
  • There will be a two-minute virtual travel time between conferences to allow you to pull up the next link
  • All conferences with Reading, Counseling, and College Counseling that you requested will be in addition to your conferences and be scheduled right after or before your hour block
