My County Poster Contest - To promote awareness of the work accomplished through New Jersey's 21 counties, the Constitutional Officers Association of New Jersey (COANJ) sponsors an annual poster contest called "MY COUNTY". Fourth graders, who study the State of New Jersey, are invited to design posters for the contest. Watchung students: Julian Perry (4H) and Annabelle Gillot (4P) both received recognition as "Honorable Mentions". Congratulations on a job well done!

Morning Drop-Off – We value everyone’s time, but we value our student’s safety more. Please refrain from passing the carline in the morning and dropping your child off in front of the school parking lot. This has led to several close calls over the past few weeks. Thank you for your cooperation.

Notes from the PTA:

School supply time!: Order your school supplies for next year here while helping raise money for Watchung. What could be easier!? Don't leave this until Labor Day, cross this off your list and order before 6/15/19 to take advantage of this awesome program. For those who haven't participated in the past, you place your order based on grade and your child's box of supplies will be waiting for them in their classroom the first day of school.

You can also donate a kit to the school: when you place your order in the cart, there’s a pop up with “Donate a Kit” on it. Select it and it brings you to a new page and you can select a kit for any grade.

Happy Father’s Day to all of our Watchung Fathers!
