Part of the process for our weekly development of our HS Newsletter is to review what we were doing a year ago on this very same week. Well, a week ago this year the world shut down and we went virtual as a school. Who would have thought that virtual learning would be our format for the rest of our school year?
But as we stand here today in acknowledgement of where we stood a year ago, who would have thought that The Craig School would be one of the less than 100 schools in New Jersey (minus a make up snow day or a heating issue) that would be open live 5-days a week for our entire school year? We feel blessed and honored that we as a school community were able to pull together to make this happen and move us all forward. The enthusiasm of our students, the commitment of our faculty, and the trust of our parents are truly what made this all work! We look forward to looking back at this week’s CHIL next year and feeling as fortunate as we do today!

INTRAMURAL HOOPS SENIOR DAY
Last week, we wrapped up our Intramural Hoops League with a celebration of our 12th grade players. The underclassmen formed a tunnel, we cranked up some “Jock Jams'', and we gave our senior leaders the standing ovation they deserved as they were announced at game time! Thanks to Coach Norton for an awesome season, our scoreboard operator Raul for keeping us on time and our statistician, Brendan for catching every play every time. And a special thanks to KS Productions (CEO and High School 12th Grader, Kevin) who volunteered his time, equipment, and expertise to allow us to live stream most of our games. And now make some noise for your Seniors…...
SEE OUR SENIORS PICTURED IN OUR PHOTO GALLERY!
We invite you to a parent get-together over Zoom held March 23nd at 9:00 am. We will meet on Zoom and then divide into grade-level break-out rooms (e.g. 5th-grade parents with other 5th-grade parents). Click here to register: Parent Community Time: Parents Meeting Parents.

Also this month, we are bringing back two of our student’s favorites-homemade Sloppy Joes and Tito's Burritos. We will be celebrating William Shakespeare's birthday with an English lunch (think Fish & Chips, Bangers and Mash) and we will be closing out the month with one of the most student requested additions to our lunch program-Ramen Noodle day!
