    Dear TJS Families,
    Thank you for coming to our annual sing-a-long today!  It was a fun way to wrap up our week leading into the holidays.  A special thank you to Mr. Dan Malloy who did an excellent job orchestrating the event!
    As we look towards the upcoming year, there are some staffing changes to share. Mrs. Carolyn Rommeihs, special education teacher, will be extending her leave indefinitely.  Mrs. Carlene Kinsale will continue to serve as her replacement here at Torey J. for the duration of her leave.  Ms. Kaitlyn Tierney, who served as a first grade teacher and teacher assistant, has accepted a second grade teaching position in Florham Park.  We wish her well!  Mr. Jason Griggs will replace her role of teacher assistant.  He's a familiar face to our students, as he previously served in that capacity while Ms. Tierney completed a maternity leave post.  The students will be delighted to have him back.
    A second session of Chess Club will be offered in January.  More information will be sent out in the January 6th update.
