ROSELLE, N.J. - Students at Roselle’s Harrison School celebrated two events this past Friday. The first event was Grandparent's Day. This event celebrated the first Sunday after Labor Day, has been celebrated at Harrison School for the past three years. The students invited their grandparents for tea and cookies and were able to spend quality time together affirming that special bond between grandparents and grandchildren.

Immediately following Grandparent’s Day, the whole school participated in an “International Day of Peace” event on the front lawn of the school.

This is the 8th year the Harrison school has participated in the Pinwheels for Peace event. The students wrote their thoughts about war and peace, tolerance, living in harmony with others, anti bullying and anti violence on a slip of paper that was placed on the pinwheel. The pinwheels were then placed on the lawn for the community to see their messages of hope. This also serves as a visual public statement about the need for peace in the world.

“What a wonderful way to celebrate Grandparents' Day and National Day of Peace. It was a beautiful display of love and unity in our school community, as the school chorus sang,... One Love. Nice job Harrison Elementary school family,” said Candida Young, Roselle Board of Education President.

Politics IS Government in Union County

April 22, 2018

After Bruce Paterson of Garwood was stopped from speaking at the Union County freeholder meeting of March 22 regarding the politics behind refusing to give the party line to a sitting freeholder I thought this brazen suppression of free speech could not go unanswered.

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo (Citadel Press, 1970)

 

How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.

The Truth About My Reading

The Truth About My Reading

I didn't get my Composition and Literature teacher at Montclair State College at all. A crusty old man with a dour disposition, Mr. Smith always seemed angry and rude. He appropriately intimidated freshmen, even me, an English major, who found this common core course beneath my dignity. Frankly, as a graduate of Highland Park High School, and a survivor of Mrs.
