As the winter weather continues here in Allamuchy, this is a good opportunity to remind our school community of procedures and precautions taken to ensure student safety. Bus Stop Pick-Up: Students should be standing at the bus stop a few minutes prior to the bus arrival to ensure timely pick-ups at each stop and prevent students from being in dangerous circumstances. Parents should stand with K-1 students until the bus arrives as well as be at the bus stop for student pick-up in the afternoon. Drop off at ATS: The bus lane is closed to through traffic during morning drop off and afternoon pick up hours. Please drop your students by the gym doors. Students in grades 2-5 may walk through the interior of the building to get to the cafeteria during inclement or cold weather.
So far, the Allamuchy Township School has raised $6721.00 this year. In total over the past seven years, our school has donated over $26,000 to the American Heart Association. Students in grades 2-4 participate. The students create routines and perform them on the day of the event. This picture is of the 2nd grade winners.
Every year Kindergarten welcomes Mr. Frank from Blue Ridge Lumber. He shows the students all different kinds of wood and shows them how to be safe while working with wood. Blue Ridge Lumber generously donates wood boards for all of the Kindergarten students for a very special Valentine’s Day gift for their families. To see more, please click here.
During our visit with the classes, there was a loud commotion, A SURPRIZE GUEST APPEARED!! This visit/appearance, just capped off an already special day! I sent photos to some experts including Royal Nadeau, Ph.D. a member of the Environmental Commission. He advised that we had found a young American Eel. It is one of the few catadromous fishes in the world! That means that the species reproduces in the ocean and migrates to fresh water to grow and mature.

Thanks to generous grant funding from the Allamuchy Environmental Commission Clean Communities Fund, the Allamuchy Township Second Graders had the opportunity to actively participate in the Dove Environmental Clean Communities “New Jersey Wildlife Habitats & Litter” program in December. This fun, hands-on, interactive educational program enhanced the students’ animal habitat study. The children learned valuable lessons about the importance of keeping our environment clean for the health and safety of our animal population.
