MONTVILLE, NJ - Montville Township Public Schools received a large mounted sign of the district’s first-ever logo, and an educational video from Skye Dillon, Principal and Owner of Skye Design Studios. On Tuesday, Feb. 6, the Montville Township Board of Education officially honored Dillon for his extraordinary work and dedication.

Dillon, who worked with the district’s Branding Committee for more than 10 months to develop a motto, logo and unifying images for all seven Montville Township Public Schools, donated the sign and beautifully narrated educational video to the district in January.

The sign, which features the new shield-shaped logo, is mounted in the lobby of the district Board of Education offices at 86 River Road in Montville Township, NJ. The video, which is animated and explains all elements found in the logo, was used last month to launch the brand throughout the school district.

“I want to thank you for the amazing dedication and passion that you exhibited in guiding us through our branding initiative,” Superintendent Dr. René Rovtar told Dillon at the board meeting. “By working with all stakeholders: Faculty, students, parents, staff and community, you truly captured the essence of what Montville Township Public Schools represent.”

District Communications Officer Susan Marinello, explained that the branding committee had limited resources for the launch so, plans for the image’s launch were limited to electronic posts on-line. 

“Skye,” she said, “Felt that after so much work, the district should have a sign, so he donated one to the district.”

She added that the district’s facilities team installed the impressive sign and illuminated it with a dedicated art light.

The video Dillon donated formed the basis of the district’s brand launch.

“The Branding Committee was uncertain how to help the community understand all of the meaning that is packed into the Montville Township Public Schools’ logo,” Marinello said. “The idea of a video was tossed around, but, given the limited time and resources, it seemed as though producing a video might be impossible. I told this to Skye and he said, ‘Don’t worry, I got this.’”

Entitled, Montville Township Public Schools Brand Video SDS, the video explains each element in the design, including academic excellence and knowledge. It can be viewed on the Montville Township Public Schools YouTube channel ( ).

In addition to the district’s first-ever logo, Dillon’s design work for Montville Township Public Schools included the development of a trade-marked Montville Township High School mustang, the updating of the district’s oldest image -- the Montville Township High School academic shield, and the development and implementation of the district motto EDUCATE. INSPIRE. EMPOWER.

Overparenting: What Is It and Why Do We Do It?

Overparenting.  It’s the new buzzword for helicopter parenting, enabling and micromanaging.  I did them all. I’m happy to say that I’ve (mostly) grown out of it.  The truth is that there are still moments when I have the urge to step in and take over.  It’s normal to feel that way; however, I know I’ve made progress when I feel the urge and ...
