NES Summer Book Read..Only One You

Dear NES Families,

In our efforts to support students in their summer reading, we are rolling out our One Book, One School 2019 program with the book Only One You, by Linda Kranz. Only One You discusses the uniqueness of each individual and how a person can use these differences to navigate through different areas of life. Each student/family will receive a book and a log which students can use to document their thoughts as they work through the book. It is our hope that this book provides your student with the opportunity to not only read, but the opportunity for you to discuss some of life’s lessons with your children!

If you have any questions please contact Sue Downs or Kimee Moore at downss@ufrsd.net or moorek@ufrsd.net.

NES No homework Weekend

Hello NES Families,

In an effort to provide the students and the families of the Upper Freehold Regional School District with some “family time” we have designated certain weekends as “No Homework/Family Time Weekends. As a school district, we recognize the demands of work and school on personal and family time and are mindful of how precious and important this time is. The following weekends have been designated as No Homework/Family Time Weekends for the entire Upper Freehold Regional School District.

* May 24th-May 28th

We hope that this time is used to reconnect, without electronics with the family, by having the time to spend together with less distractions. Enjoy creating a meal together or go out for a bite to eat. Board games can pass the time in a fun way as well. However you decide to use the time, enjoy it as a family!

Pajama Palooza

Today, Newell Elementary is holding its 2nd annual Pajama Palooza!! The Pajama Palooza is part the CARES program at Newell Elementary promoting empathy and kindness to others. The focus of this fun filled, lunchtime celebration, is to showcase Lala and Mimi’s Multari’s efforts to collect pajamas for children in need. Lala and Mimi have been collecting pajamas for children for 9 years distributing thousands of pairs of pajamas to children all over the country. Last year, Newell collected 329 pairs of pajamas to support Lala and Mimi. Today our goal is to collect 329 pairs + 1! Lots of dancing, games, and fun will be had today as we celebrate Lala and Mimi and the importance of our CARES program at Newell.

I would like to thank our CARES Committee and Mr. Rowley for making today’s Palooza so meaningful and fun for all of the students of NES!

Enjoy the photos!
