The North Plainfield Education Association (NPEA) will host a Welcome Back to School table at each of North Plainfield’s Back to School nights (9/13, 9/17, 9/24, 9/26, 9/27, & 10/4). This event will be staffed by members of the North Plainfield Education Association.
Over 100 parents and guardians are expected at each of the Back to School nights. Parents and guardians attending the individual Back to School night events will be given information about how North Plainfield Education Association supports the community and our children, in addition to being treated to refreshments and NPEA magnets.
In addition, we have arranged for Optical Academy to be at the NPMS/HS Back to School night, available to all members of the community. The Optical Academy is a complete on-site optical shop offering eye exams, glasses, contacts, and more. Because of their affiliation with NJEA, they are able to offer highly discounted rates. All insurance is accepted for eye exams. For those without insurance, eye exams are only $30. All Optical Academy frames and lens start at $29. We are eligible for 10 free eye exams for every 50 people that pre-register. The Optical Academy will be set up in the Overflow Room of the NPMS/HS Cafeteria from 5 to 9 PM for all district staff, students, family members, and community members to receive optical services. A copy of the flyer and consent form will be sent home with our North Plainfield students.
The NPEA is an affiliate of the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) and represents the certificated staff, including teachers, nurses, librarians, guidance counselors, and department of pupil services, and non-certificated staff, including paraprofessionals, secretaries, custodial and maintenance staff, and van drivers.
This event is one of many Pride in Public Education activities carried out by the NPEA each year. Volunteering to produce this event is one of the many ways that our members give back to the North Plainfield community. North Plainfield PRIDE is an ongoing campaign created to share the education successes of the North Plainfield School District with all North Plainfield residents and build strong community support for and involvement in our great public schools.
