School 11 Events

Clifton Centennial Parade!
Our students loved OmegaMan and will always remember his message about being a Dream Maker, not a Dream Breaker. His H.E.R.O. (Helping Everyone Respect Others) presentation was amazing!
 
Special thanks to Mr. Al Dubois and the New Jersey Tree Foundation for providing seedlings for our Kindergarten students. What a wonderful way to celebrate Earth Day!
We proudly present Grade Four's State Projects!
School Eleven students are busy noting acts of kindness in their Kindness Keepers, an initiative created in coordination with the Special Events Committee of the Clifton Centennial. Each morning, during a moment of silence students are asked to reflect upon how they as individuals can brighten someone else's day.
 
 
Our Kindergarten classes enjoyed a special visit from the Clifton Board of Health. The students participated in an interactive program and learned important lessons such as how to properly brush their teeth, healthy snack ideas, and visiting the dentist regularly. By the end of the program, our students were superheros in oral hygiene!
