Superintendent of Millburn Township Schools Update

Scholastic Art and Writing Competition Participants Credits: Millburn Township Public Schools

MILLBURN, NJ - I’m thinking about the arts this week, as we applaud forty-six Millburn High School student artists and one Millburn Middle School student who have won a total of 47 awards in this year's Scholastic Art and Writing competition. The competition is the longest running, most prestigious art competition in the nation for students in grades 7-12.  More than 1,462 students from the northern New Jersey region submitted works this year and there were over 1300 winners in the categories of Gold, Silver and Honorable Mention. See all of our winners at the annual Youth Art Month exhibit at MHS on March 30.
I also had an opportunity, along with many of you, to enjoy the calm before the storm, at Millburn High School’s Band Concert on Wednesday night. It is always such a treat to experience the award-winning talent of our student musicians. Close your eyes, listen to the classics and jazz standards, and you could be at Lincoln Center!
We’ll be thinking about Millburn High School junior, Renee Levine during the Grammy Awards on Sunday night. Her song, “Paralyzed,” won second place in the seventh annual GRAMMY Foundation® and MusiCares® Teens Make Music Contest. This contest asks young musicians to compose or create an original song and/or music video that celebrates life above the influence or brings attention to the real-life consequences of substance abuse. “Paralyzed” describes the life of an individual struggling with a substance abuse problem, and how to try to help them overcome the addiction. Renee is out in Los Angeles enjoying backstage access and Grammy festivities. We are proud of Renee whose peer leadership sets an example for a healthy lifestyle for all students in following a drug and alcohol-free path.
I hope you will plan on helping the district in our efforts to set a healthy path for our students, staff and community. Please join us on Wednesday for our Health & Wellness Community Forum , at 7 pm at Hartshorn School. We want to hear from you, so come out and share your ideas. Click the RSVP link here, so we have an idea of the number of attendees for planning purposes. Walk-ins also welcome – please come!

Lindsey Singh can attest to the importance of immediacy. The 31-year-old mother of two from Flanders experienced ...
