NES Awarded Best in the State of New Jersey

Do Read On...

NES was recently awarded Best in the State of New Jersey by Scholastic Summer Reading Program for our summer reading minutes achievement. The students of NES read 1,885,364 minutes and our school was ranked the "top" school in ALL of New Jersey! NES also placed 15th in the World--WOW! To celebrate this achievement, representatives from Scholastic visited on Tuesday, December 3rd to present our top 5 readers with 2 special plaques and a beautiful banner highlighting our reading minutes.  


I congratulate all of the students of NES who participated in our summer reading challenge. And, a very special congratulations goes to our top 5 readers...Makayla Rondinellli, Gaia Dumbra, Matthew McCormick, Arjun Singh and Melissa Domen.


I am so very proud to be principal of NES and I am especially proud of our accomplishment!!
