CEDAR GROVE, NJ –Cedar Grove Education Association (CGEA) president Chris Cannella presented the annual CGEA PRIDE program at the Board of Education meeting Tuesday. 

CGEA PRIDE was formed in 2006-07 to promote the bonds between teachers, students, parents and the entire community.  The New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) provides funding for special activities that promote these bonds according to the CGEA. 

In 1994, NJEA initiated PRIDE in Public Education, a campaign aimed at sharing the successes of New Jersey’s public schools and building community support and involvement.  NJEA provides grants for all kinds of local and county community involvement projects.
