School Board Adds Extra Meeting Tuesday, October 12

October 11, 2021

Another Nobel, Another Princeton Connection

Earlier this week, as Princeton University was basking in having two professors win Nobel Prizes on two consecutive days, we facetiously speculated about what Princetonian might be next in line at the prize podium.

CP's Class of 2020 -- Preserving the Legacy

At the elementary school level, the numerals of the “graduating” class are rarely memorable and the class is “special” only if your kid happens to be a member of it.

The case could be made, however, that the fifth graders who constituted the Class of 2020 at Community Park School were something special. What distinguished that class was that it was the first cohort of ...
