Our Annual School Spring Fling Fundraiser was held on Friday, March 30th at The Basking Ridge Country Club.  The Denim & Gold Event was a big success & we hope you had a great time!  We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that attended & donated to the event.  Through your generosity, the lives of our students here at Allen W. Roberts Elementary will be positively impacted!

With over 235 people in attendance this year’s Denim & Gold Fundraiser is one for the record books!!  We are thrilled to announce that the AWR PTA generated a net profit of $26,000 for our school

For those that could not attend, here are some highlights of the night’s festivities.  Attendees filled the beautiful & spacious Basking Ridge Country Club which overlooked the golf course. Guest were greeted with our signature cocktail called the “Blue Ram” and dined on passed hors d'oeuvres along with beer & wine.  Afterwards, guests were treated to a delicious dinner buffet that included all you can eat sliders, an endless shrimp display, assorted sushi, pasta stations and much more.  With over 105 Raffle Baskets, Silent Auction and other Grand Prizes there were many happy winners!  Some prizes of note are: the new iPad and a 40 inch LED HDTV, a Pot of Gold (valued at $1,000), a 50/50 raffle, preferred parking for the year, early bird & door prize raffle baskets, Great Wolfe Lodge weekend, Wildwood Crest vacation, Coach & Tory Burch bags, NPPAL merchandise, Creative Wallgcoverings & Interiors services, Dinner packages, Wine baskets, a Night at the Opera, Spa giveaways, Sport memorabilia, Concert Tickets…and so much more.  There were so many fabulous prizes, too many to list...  In the end, we were all winners because the money raised during that night goes directly to benefit the children of our school.  One of our goals this year was to exceed the PTA budget and definitely we surpassed it!  Therefore, a portion of the excess will be used to support the library makeover project.  Other areas in which the children will benefit are through social, cultural and academic programs in which the PTA plans & funds on a yearly basis.

The majority of the prizes were donated by local businesses, families & friends in Berkeley Heights, New Providence and Summit.  Special thanks to Accent Printing Solutions for generously donating the printing of our signs & our Program Guide as well as Virginia Liberato of Creative Wallcoverings & Interiors for the great party favor bags.  Please refer to your Program Guide or the school website (www.npsd.k12.nj.us) for a full list of donors.  Please show them your appreciation by shopping local and thanking them when you visit their business.  It really does make a difference!

Special recognition goes out to our AWR Teachers, Mrs. Hansen, Mr. Richter, Mrs. Luzzi, Mrs. Wert, Mrs. Conover, Mrs. Fahey and the custodians for their “behind-the-scenes” support these past several weeks.  This was the largest attendance by our faculty and we are very grateful!

We do this for our children and are proud to be a part of this great organization. Again, THANK YOU to our PTA Executive Board, the Spring Fling Committee and our Parent Volunteers for all you time & energy.  Without your help, it couldn’t have been done!!  If you weren’t able to make it this year, we look forward to seeing you next year!

Coach Bottone Tribute

May 19, 2018

2017 Pioneer football players took on a tall task of filling a lot of open spots with not many returning players. We had 30 kids on our football team who all wanted to be there. With a new head coach who just came on board in late April, we had a lot of things to do without much time. Most people would say being on a 1-9 football team would be no fun and, at times, it wasn’t, but it was the ...
