Superintendent Dr. Christine Burton Credits: TAPinto

I am excited to welcome Joshua Koen, the Chief Innovation Officer with the New Jersey Department of Education to Millburn on Wednesday, March 29. He will speak to attendees of the evening showing of Most Likely to Succeed, on the integral role technology plays in developing our students as innovators and problem-solvers. He will also share the initiatives underway in New Jersey to prepare our students for the education of the future that is illuminated in this must-see movie. I encourage all parents to take advantage of the two opportunities to see this groundbreaking, award-winning film thanks to our PTOC Parent Education Committee. The morning showing is at 11:30 a.m. at Bow Tie Cinema, Millburn; the evening showing is at 7:30 p.m. at the MHS auditorium. All are welcome!
I would also like to remind you of some upcoming programs for parents, staff and students that underscore our continuing efforts to provide programming to address health and wellness for our community.
Tuesday, April 4, 7 p.m., Millburn Middle School Auditorium – Straight Shots
The Millburn Municipal Alliance Committee and the Parent Wellness Consortium present Dr. Timothy Silvestri, who will provide facts about teenage drinking, focusing on the brain, social norms, and best practices to aid in student success. Parents will learn about the issue of student substance abuse and the program can help to create a healthy dialogue about choices at home. Middle school and high school students are invited to this informative program, and students who attend will get a chance to win gift certificates to the Millburn Deli.

Dr. Silvestri is a Psychologist and Substance Abuse Specialist, and Assistant Director of Counseling Services at Lafayette College.
Family Meal Week –MMAC sponsors this event from April 2 to 9 to remind families to take some time out of our busy lives to Make Meal Time REAL time, and re-connect. Schedule a time when everyone can be together and talk. It doesn’t have to be dinner…try breakfast or brunch or a weekend lunchtime. Try a no technology policy at the table  - that applies to parents too!
Remember to respond to our Parent Grade Span Support Survey to share helpful information, positive words of wisdom, and those “aha moments” that occurred as your children made the journey through our schools.
Monday’s Board of Education Meeting will include a presentation by Mr. Peter Mercurio, current Principal of Wyoming School – and future Principal at Washington School. He will share updates on the planning for the opening of our Fifth Grade school. Please join us at 7:45 at the Education Center.

We all know art helps heal the soul. Mark your calendar for next Thursday’s Youth Art Month Exhibition. Stop in to the high school gym from 6:30 to 8 p.m. to see a display of art from Kindergarten to AP Art students. Prepare to be amazed at the talent on display. I thank our gifted art teachers whose enthusiasm and hard work makes this event possible every year.
On a final note, this was Assistant Superintendent Dr. Mike Ryan’s last day in Millburn. We thank him for his dedication to our students and schools, and wish him well in his new role at the University of Delaware, and in this new chapter of his professional journey.
Enjoy this first weekend of Spring!
