Parents, students, faculty, and community members of Liberty and Independence Township: Another exciting and eventful school year is fast approaching. As the summer comes to an end, we hope you enjoyed your time away with family and friends and are now preparing for the upcoming year. As always, I encourage you to partner with our staff as a school community. Your input is highly valued and necessary in the progress of your child’s education. Staying consistent with last school year’s calendar, we will continue to hold Principal Forums several times throughout the year. In addition, we will also have a Strategic Planning “Look Back” presentation to discuss the present and future endeavors of our school district at our December 2014 public meeting. Another way for you to be a part of our school community is to remain active in your child’s daily activities and join parent organizations. More importantly, we, as a school district, recognize all our parents’ support and dedication to our students, and without parent involvement successes would be lost. Join us this year in assisting your child/children supersede their potential. Sincerely, David C. Mango Superintendent of Schools
The GMRSD will provide quality educational opportunities that ensure the individual success of all students within a safe and supportive environment and to build life-long learners who will meet society’s challenges into and beyond the 21st century. To that end, it is anticipated that all students will achieve the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards (NJCCCS) at all grade levels.
The Great Meadows Regional Education Association is offering two $500 scholarships (one for fine/performing arts, one for academic excellence) to any senior who attended any of the schools in our district for two or more years.
