Drama Club Wins BIG at Theatre Competition
The HJSHS Drama Club attended The NJ Governor's Awards in Arts Education Competition, sponsored by STANJ (Speech and Theatre Association of NJ) on January 30th, 2016. Thirty-five high schools with over 600 students competed in categories such as comedic monologue, dramatic monologue, comedic pairs, dramatic pairs, scenes, and improvisation.
Ms. Miller is proud of her students who worked hard and presented themselves in a professional manner. The following students won awards:

Gina Rotondi won 4th place for Comedic Monologue.

Brittney Colon won 3rd Place for Comedic Monologue.

Brandon Lyons, Jeane Cummins, and Te'Janea Bradley Johnson won 4th place in the scene category (3 or more actors) for the play A Raisin in the Sun.

What is most impressive is that Brandon Lyons won BEST ACTOR out of the entire competition for his portrayal of Walter Lee in A Raisin in the Sun. He will now get to attend the Governor's Awards Ceremony in Trenton in May to receive an additional award.

HJSHS and Urban Farming
Congratulations to HJSHS teacher Juliana Addi, whose successful proposal has netted a $25,000 grant to develop the Urban Farm Engineers Club. The grant is from Cognizant, a global leader in business and industry, as part of their Making the Future grant program, which “seeks to inspire young learners and future leaders to pursue science, technology, engineering, and math disciplines by creating fun, hands on learning opportunities.”
Understanding Your Child's Test Results
The PARCC test was designed to provide clear information on your child’s progress toward meeting grade level expectations and mastering important skills like critical thinking. The score report gives you a snapshot of how your child is progressing and shows where he or she excels or needs more support. This information, along with grades, teacher feedback and scores on other tests, will help give a more complete picture of how well your child is performing academically.

Each school will host an informational session on how to read your child's performance on the PARCC test. Below are the dates and times at each school.

Please contact your child's school for additional information.
