On Tuesday, March 18, 2014, Hillside Avenue School and Orange Avenue School will host a joint
orientation program for all parents and guardians of current 5th, 6th and 7th grade students. The
program will be held in the Hillside Avenue School auditorium beginning at 7:00 p.m. The
purpose of the program is to not only provide you with valuable information about courses being
offered to your child but also to learn about some important social and emotional issues that our
children face today.

We are in the process of updating our mission statement. An effective mission statement has meaning to the entire school community. It should inspire and clearly communicate what is important and at the heart of what we do in the schools and in the district.

MISSION STATEMENT: The Cranford Public Schools promotes Pre K – Grade 12 education as a shared responsibility among students, teachers, administrators, parents and community. The Cranford Public Schools strive to create a safe, caring, and rigorous learning environment responsive to the individual needs and interests of our students, providing programs of studies consistent with the Common Core State Standards and New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. Central to these programs are relevant, real-world learning experiences that stimulate and encourage curiosity, effective communication, goal setting and problem-solving skills along with opportunities that promote self-expression, creativity, and respect. All students are provided with the critical thinking skills needed to become thoughtful, responsible and productive citizens making contributions in local and global contexts.
