  • "LET'S Go for the gold. . . pass the baton!!!"Congratulations Khaisha Charles and Byonka Gregory, senior class sponsor and administrator respectively, for organizing and hosting a magical prom night for the students. Everyone looked wonderful and the students had a wonderful time. Our senior team’s year of planning culminated in a beautiful event. Thank you! 

    Thank you Brian Makell and Dr. Cathleen Rozanski for attending the Human Resources sponsored Saturday morning job fair. Your commitment to finding qualified staff members for next year is appreciated!

    Dr. Regina Young has been working to facilitate conversation between the administrative team and students on what is working well and what needs improvement in our school. Thank you Dr. Young for encouraging students to be introspective and coaching them on how to articulate their viewpoints clearly. These are very important skills for our students to develop and the ideas being shared are useful!

    Congratulations Natoya Coleman on your acceptance to Rowan University’s doctoral program! Good luck in the future, we know you will go on and do great work.
