The location of the Common Core Parent Workshop on Tuesday, October 14th has been moved to Edison High School. The presentation will begin at 6:30 pm in the Auditorium at Edison High School. (This is the same presentation as the October 7th presentation. There is no need to attend both presentations.)

 The Menlo Park community loves to welcome new students and their families. We encourage all new Menlo families to watch either of the Orientation Presentations below to gain a better understanding of Menlo Park School. Welcome to Menlo!

Camp Bernie Information 
Camp Bernie is an overnight educational experience special for our 5th Grade students. During this two-day, one-night adventure, students learn all about teamwork, independence, and nature while also meeting their future 6th grade peers from neighboring Woodbrook Elementary School. Parents/Guardians are encouraged to attend one of the Camp Bernie Parent meetings to learn more about the trip and ask questions. 
Please note: Both sessions are the same. There is no need to attend both.  
 Thursday, September 4th at 7:00 pm - Edison High School Cafeteria
Tuesday, September 23rd at 7:00 pm - John P. Stevens High School Cafeteria 
Menlo Park students will be divided between two trips. The first trip will be October 27th-28th (Monday - Tuesday). The second trip will be November 20th - 21st (Thursday - Friday). More information will be sent home detailing the specific dates for each 5th grade class and items to pack as the trip draws closer.
