This week, our Wolves participated in community building through personal wellness activities led by Sue Murphy.
The trout eggs arrived today from the Pequest Hatchery, delivered by Trout Unlimited, a national organization that brings trout eggs to schools for the Trout in the Classroom (TIC) project. TIC is a NJDEP Fish and Wildlife program that teaches the importance of cold water conservation. The delivery gentlemen and their precious cargo were received to cheers and song. Many thanks to the 5th grade team and TIC advisors Mrs. Thompson and Mrs. Rooney. Students later looked at the unviable eggs with the microscope. We look forward to helping our trout grow strong for their release in May.
Mayor Matt Murello visited grade two students in response to their letter asking him to speak about Community and Government and his role as the town's mayor. What a great experience for all involved! ✉ 🗣👏🏻
This week is Penny Wars during all lunch periods. By the entrance to the MPR (S. Gym / Cafeteria) each House has its own collection jar. The goal is to have the most points for your house to win Spirit Points. All coins are worth awarded points in your house jar. Any bills are subtracted points. Good Luck!
It's Red Ribbon Week! Recognized nationally, Red Ribbon Week is an alcohol, tobacco, smoking, and other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign. This week will be a Spirit Week at LVMS with events each day to promote drug use prevention.
