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!

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
