CHS Student Spotlight
CHS Students Complete ENABLE Transition Program: CHS 10th Graders, Grady Fitzsimons, and Henry Borner Du Cane joined a group of BHS students as a part of the ENABLE Program, an 8-week pilot program funded by the state on NJ that focused on job readiness, career exploration, and job training. The program is geared towards students with learning disabilities and teaches workplace readiness skills, provides job exploration opportunities, hone interviewing skills, and helps students develop their first resumes. The program shares a significant amount of commonality with our 10th Grade CAREER AWARENESS course that all CHS students take their sophomore year as a part of the CHS Self Program. But the opportunity to join with BHS was just too good to pass up. Congrats to Henry and Grady on a job well done!

Craig School Chili Throwdown NEWS: The countdown to the Craig School “Chili Throwdown” stands at 487 hours!! On Saturday, Feb. 23rd on our Lower-Middle School Campus (15 Tower Hill Road) in Mountain Lakes from 11-1PM it will be happening.
Start testing out your chili recipes, cleaning off your chili tasting spoon, and get ready for some good old fashioned Craig School Community fun. And remember, it’s not a community event if you aren’t part of it.
