With the new school year right around the corner, we are hosting two very special events to welcome our newest Menlo Park Students and their families.
New Student Orientation - Monday, August 25th at 1:00 pm
Kindergarten Orientation - Tuesday, September 2nd at 1:30 pm 

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.
