    International Group:

    As the end of the school year approaches, we would like to say Good Bye to some of the international families that will be leaving us.  We hope they enjoyed their time in America and will take some nice memories with them. We wish them all the best!

     

    Additionally, one of our TJS international families has moved within Madison and enjoyed the group so much they would like to start an international parent group at their new school.

     

    To celebrate these changes, we will end the academic year with a picnic.  Please feel welcome to join us  on June 8  from 11-1pm at Loantaka Pond Area of Morris County Park.

    The Address is 1 Quaker Ridge Road, Morristown, NJ.  Please contact Patricia Kupper with any questions or for more information.
