Fall Party - October 28th!

Fall party is coming up quickly parents! Most classes are planning to have their fall themed party on the 28th of this month.  Please send in your $15 contribution as soon as possible.  Place your contribution in an envelope titled 'Class Party Money' with your child's name and teacher's name. This money will cover the Fall, Valentine's and End of Year class parties. Let's help all our children have fun and successful parties. 

For questions, contact your class's Room Parent or the PTA Room Parent Coordinator, Irit Goldman at

October 17th thru 28th!

The Fall Fundraiser is around the corner. It's easy, breezy, and not so cheesy.  You write a check to the Cedar Grove PTA for the year your child graduates high school. For example, if it is 2034 - then you write a check for $20.34!  Remember all the money you send will go towards enhancing the academic experience for our Cedar Grove students; whether it be audio equipment for the school, electronic board sign, revamping our media room, and much much more.
