At the Primrose School of Berkeley Heights, we are so proud of the philanthropy that our students and families have displayed this holiday season. This year, our Primrose system of schools raised a record-breaking $622,500 for national and local children’s charities through Spring Fling and other events. That’s $100,000 more than last year! Half of the funds went to local community causes, such as our very own Berkeley Heights Rescue Squad, and half will be donated to our national charitable partners, Save the Children and Reach and Read.

Giving without expectation is not just “another thing” we do at Primrose, it is something we live by and reinforce continually with our students and through our Primrose PromiseSM. Our families made generous contributions during our “Caring and Giving Food Drive” enabling the Primrose School of Berkeley Heights to donate over 900 non-perishable items to the United Community Corporation. We have also collected over 100 jackets and coats that will be donated to the Vietnam Veterans Affairs. These meaningful contributions will have significant impact in the lives of children and families in the greatest need. Our heartfelt thanks to all who participated! What wonderful role models we have and what a meaningful way to close out an amazing year!

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

If the current interest environment has you concerned about your bond portfolio, remember why you are investing in bonds.  The role bonds, or fixed income, play in a portfolio is not solely based on performance.  Bonds are used to offer stability, particularly when stock market volatility is rising. Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
