Congratulations to our 3rd-5th grade girls who participated with nearly 1500 people and 600 girls in the Girls on the Run 5K yesterday morning. All girls were in great spirits and ran their hearts out! Congratulations to coaches Jenn Sauter, Cathy Cefaloni and Laurie Rapisardi who prepared these girls for a great experience along with their supportive families. Thank you Michelle Ricci, Divya Bahl, and Caitlyn Gleason who ran, along with our coaches, to give these girls an unforgettable experience. BIG thank you to Paige Schmiedeke who was also there to cheer our girls on!
November 11, 2015 To the editor: As a student at Allamuchy School District in Allamuchy, New Jersey, my concerns and issues are on pollution in bodies of water. One major issue is oil spills. Oil spills from an oil tanker create an oil slick that can affect areas of the ocean. Sewage that washes up onto beaches could affect the health of humans, plants, and animals. Over 70% of pollution at sea come from routine shipping and from the oil people pouring it down drains on land. I believe the solution to the problem can be solved in our society by education, laws, and economics by making people aware of the problem by banning together to organize community beach-cleaning sessions, make laws tougher for people who pollute, and the polluter should be fined a hefty penalty for them to behave in an environmentally responsible way. We can make pollution less of a problem and the world would be a better place. Teddy Schultz Jr. Allamuchy, New Jersey
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 3-5 may walk through the interior of the building to get to the cafeteria.
