Superintendent of Millburn Township Public Schools Update


As we come to the end of this year and start planning for 2018-2019, we would like to get some input from you about school district communications. Please take a few minutes to respond to this short Communications Survey.  I look forward to receiving feedback from Millburn parents, staff, students and community members to enhance the ways we provide information to you.

Students gave tours to parents and community members and presented projects and artwork, while highlighting the Leader in Me program that infuses the culture, curriculum and collaboration at the school.  I was so impressed with the growth of these students this year.  Middle School – ready or not – here they come!

At Monday’s Board of Education meeting, we will administer the oath of office to our newest Board of Education member, Oyin Owolabi, who will fill the seat vacated by Michael King until the January re-organization meeting. We will also have an environmental presentation by Whitman, an environmental company, regarding the testing of the Middle School gym floor for mercury vapor. 


Thanks to the Millburn Township Green Schools Team for collaborating with the Downtown Millburn Development Alliance to accept and plant their donation of 18 Colorado Blue Spruce trees at our schools.  These trees were originally installed by the DMDA in planters to decorate the downtown.    They are now beautifying our schools with the assistance of Township Forester Tom Doty, our own District Buildings and Grounds crews, and Jim Mancini of Mancini Landscaping Associates in Warren who generously donated his time, labor and crew to assist.  What a wonderful “green” solution to finding a happy home for these trees!





  • Don’t forget to vote in Tuesday’s Primary Election.  
  • All are invited to Wednesday’s High School Chorus & Orchestra Concert at 7:30 pm. 

LAST, but not least, don’t miss the final Strawberry Festival of the season at South Mountain School on Wednesday. Bring your family and enjoy live music, carnival rides & games, face painting, delicious food and of course fresh strawberries!
