Brooks Crossing and Deans Campus: “Ambassador to Universal Preschool!”


This Wednesday, we had an exciting morning at Deans. Governor Murphy and NJ Commissioner of Education Ms. Allen-McMillan visited Karen Delcampe's Preschool class and then participated in a lesson in Rachel Kline's preschool room. They finished with a press conference in the Deans Library, where Mrs. Kline was the first speaker and introduced Governor Murphy for his announcement of additional funding for preschool!


The following are several links to the day’s events:

Please notify your child's teacher and [email protected] as soon as you know your travel plans for your child. Michelle Cima will send you information that includes a link to a form to report the absence. You will then be notified of the steps to follow if you choose to re-register your child to attend Brooks Crossing Elementary School upon your return.  NOTE: Re-registering may take a few days after you return and there is no guarantee for the same classroom assignment.
