While northern New Jersey was digging out from under the recent nor'easter, these four outstanding musicians from the Gould School Chorus traveled to Pittsburgh, PA, to participate in the 2018 ACDA Eastern Division Elementary Honor Choir. Students in the 100-voice choir were chosen by audition from an 11-state region, spanning from Maine to Maryland.

These students spent three days in intense rehearsals with Dr. Susan Brumfield, professor of music education at Texas Tech University and founder and artistic director of the West Texas Children's Chorus. Their time in Pittsburgh culminated in a concert at Heinz Hall, the historic home of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.

Grandview School Raises $19,138 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

Students of Grandview School have raised $19,138 this school year. The students who raised the most money this year for each grade level are pictured above from left to right: Michela DiGiorgio (first grade), Sophia Capadona (kindergarten), Lindsey Trauman (second grade), and Cathleen Koch (third grade). 

Elsewhere in North Caldwell Schools:

In honor of learning letters “P” and “J,” kindergartners celebrated a "PJ Day." In order to enhance the day, the students also shared in the gift of giving by donating books to Project Night Night, a charity that helps "homeless children have sweeter dreams."

Each kindergartner was asked to bring in one book to donate. According to the district, the students and teachers were proud when they saw their books all together and how much of a difference they would be making for other children by donating a total of nearly 100 books.

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.
