    The week of March 27th, in Physical Education, Mr. Gerenstein's classes will partake in Jump Rope for Heart. Jump Rope for Heart is a fundraiser for the American Heart Association. Between now and a week after the event, students can help raise money for the American Heart Association by going to heart.org/jump or using the pamphlet that will be going home with the students. One of the two PE classes the week March 27th will be dedicated to heart healthy activities and jumping rope. Students do not need to raise funds in order to participate in Jump Rope for Heart. Fundraising is completely optional and everyone will participate in this heart healthy event!  If you have any questions, feel free to email Mr Gerenstein at gerensteina@madisonnjps.org.
    Get your Slamwich!
    This past week, Charlotte Dunn, Lucas Taylor, Ashley Driscoll, Alyssa Lee, Mr. Gerenstein, and Mr. Stricchiola created the TJS Tornado that will be featured on the Slamwich menu starting Monday for the week.  It's a specialty burger loaded with toppings.  If you've never been to Slamwich, now is the time to go!  Special thanks to the owners and PTO for making this happen!  http://www.slamwichscratchkitchen.com/
