FANWOOD, NJ -- FlexSchool, a micro school for gifted and twice exceptional students, is expanding into the space previously occupied by Be Craftful.

The space will be a combination of meeting, eating, and creation space, according to Jacqui Byrne, Head of School.

"The students are thrilled to be getting a new multipurpose room and can't wait to see what it looks like. Right now there is a square hole in the wall where the new door will be," said Bryne, who plans to install sofas, tables, and a kitchenette. "Students peek inside every day to see if there is any progress."

Recently, FlexSchool has been approved by The Department of Homeland Security to issue international student visas, and the team is excited to admit international students. Additionally, FlexSchool also opened a second school in New Haven, CT, where it was featured in the New Haven Register. Heidi Molbak, Head of School in Connecticut, will run the new location. 

FlexSchool is an independent private school in New Jersey formed to serve "twice exceptional students" -- students with a high intelligence and at least one other exceptionality, such as a learning disorder or some emotional disorders, that makes traditional educational environments inappropriate for their needs.

Why We Keep Kosher

Why We Keep Kosher

This week's parshah, Shemini, introduces the Torah's dietary laws. Animals must chew their cud and have split hooves to be kosher, fish need fins and scales, and a list of forbidden fowl is enumerated.

To those of us in Jewish education, it is a continuing source of disappointment that so many Jews still believe the kosher laws to be outdated.

Politics IS Government in Union County

April 21, 2018

Dear Editor:

After Bruce Patterson 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.

At the April 19 meeting I answered with these comments.

After ten years of following government in Union ...
