BRANCHBURG, NJ - Summer Campers and Kindergarteners at Kangaroo Kids Child Care and Learning Center had an opportunity to understand the value of coins. 

It is amazing how all those coins in our pockets can add up.

The children toured Somerset Savings Bank and dropped their coins for autism into the coin counting machine.  Their eyes widened as the coins whirled around the counter to determine how much they raised to support Autism Speaks, “Julie’s Hope.”

They added $159.06 coins to the over $2,000 they already raised for autism.  Everyone went away learning the importance of saving money as well as understanding the inner workings of the bank. Campers learned about the spirit of helping others and felt good about donating to a very worthy cause. 

This month is open house month at Kangaroo Kids.  Kangaroo Kids Child Care and Learning Center has been a leader in education since 1991 and recently was awarded no. 1 child care program in America and is inviting the community to tour the school and see firsthand our exceptional curriculum.  They have programs for children from six weeks old through to a private school kindergarten, summer camp and before and after school programs.

Student: Sometimes Existing Rules Need to Change for the Betterment of Society

April 25, 2018

To the Editor:

In "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins, Rue, a child tribute, was killed for the purpose of survival, by her competitors, as well as for the ultimate purpose of entertainment for the Gamemakers.
