DRESS REGULATIONS

 

It is the responsibility of the parents/guardians to send children to school properly dressed.  This board policy is in place to ensure the safety of the students and prevent disruption of the education program.  The following minimum standards are considered appropriate guidelines for student attire:

► Footwear must be firmly secured to feet.  For safety reasons, no flip-flops or any type of beach footwear are permitted. 

 

PLEASE BE SAFE! OPEN SHOES, LIKE SANDALS OR FLIP FLOPS ARE A SAFETY HAZARD! OUTDOOR RECESS, BOARDING BUSES, AND GYM REQUIRE SNEAKERS AND/OR SENSIBLE SAFE SHOES!

► Hats or caps are not permitted inside the school building except for approved programs or events. 

 

► Jewelry, especially earrings, must be safe and conducive to both academic and physical activities or should be removed for those occasions. 

 

► Students may wear shorts that are at least finger-tip length at any time except during special occasions when other dress is specifically required or weather condition make wearing shorts inappropriate for health reasons. 

 

► Clothing should be neat and clean.  No ripped or tattered clothing is permitted.  ► Any writing or pictorial representations on clothing should not detract from the orderly environment of the school.  Words, images, or representations considered obscene, dangerous, or insulting to others are not permitted.

PLUTO:  ALERT.....

 

http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/newhorizons/main/index.html

 http://www.ourpluto.org/home

NASA’s New Horizons probe has been traveling nine years and more than three billion miles to the outer edges of our solar system. When it reaches Pluto, on July 14, it will send back the first-ever close-up images of the dwarf planet and its moons.

 

You can submit names for as-yet-undiscovered geological features on Pluto and its largest moon, Charon. Names must fit into themes about mythology or exploration. You can also check out suggested names and vote for your favorites (see the section just for kids). But don’t wait. Deadline for both is next Friday, April 24.

 

Please scroll down for FYI --#1-8 and more! :) 

Dear 5W Crew,

 

     1. Let's keep the memory of our dear local hero alive.  Mr. George Czurlanis, a WWII Veteran, recipient of  a Purple Heart and Bronze Star,  passed away last week at the age of 94.  Remember our Pulaski Day Memorial Ceremony back in October?  Well, Mr. Czurlanis was our local hero responsible for making us all aware of our Revolutionary War roots here in Little Egg Harbor, NJ.

Let us keep the life and legacy of Mr. Czurlanis alive in our local history!  Here is a write up about Mr. Czurlanis.  I sure will miss him; however, let's read about the wonderful part of history that he gave to each of us. Let's try next October to attend the Pulaski Day Memorial and continue to cherish our American history by reading more about our great country, the home of the free and the brave!
