Week of April 29th, 2019

Each year, the PACS give a gift to the CHS graduating class.  In 2016, the students decided that we should use the gift to purchase graduation lawn signs that would tell each of their local communities that a CHS Grad lives there! This has now become a CHS Graduation tradition thanks to the PACS and their ongoing support and generosity.  On behalf of the CHS Class of 2019, we say thanks to the PACS!

Program Spotlights

National Honor Society Leads Earth Day Event at CHS: Earth Day was celebrated this past week at CHS as the CHS Chapter of the National Honor Society led a school-wide Earth Day Project, "Beautifying Boonton".  Members of our NHS helped facilitate our “trash pickup” groups to clean up designated school/neighborhood quadrants around BHS/CHS. Armed with pick-up sticks and garbage bags, the NHS led their peers around the surrounding neighborhoods and gave it a good spring cleaning.  In total we picked up over 15lbs of garbage.

Craig School Collects/Recycles 17lbs of Plastic for February/MarchCraig School Collects/Recycles 17lbs of Plastic for February/March: Thanks to our students, parents and teachers, we have collected over 17lbs of plastic for our nationwide TREX recycling competition!  That’s 17lbs of plastic that will not spend the next few hundred years decomposing in a landfill but instead will be recycled and turned into something new and useful!  We are looking to keep our TREX momentum going for April so please keep sending in those plastic bags/items below.  We have our specially marked TREX bin by our front door so students can easily drop off on their arrival at school.  Plastic items to send in include:

  • Grocery bags
  • Bread bags
  • Dry cleaning bags
  • News paper plastic sleeves
  • Ziplocs
  • Produce bags
  • Bubble wrap
