2016-2017 Governor's Educator of the Year
C.A.R.E. Giving Tree!
It’s that time of the year once again! JP Stevens has adopted 13 families this holiday season for the C.A.R.E. project. The C.A.R.E. project sponsors families of Edison with children who are in need of gifts for the upcoming holiday season.
If you are interested in providing a gift, individually or as a group, please:
Take a tag from the giving tree in the Counseling Office naming the gift you need to purchase (one tag per personunless you are taking for a club).
Complete the information on the sign-up sheet for that specific item.
Purchase and wrap the gift, using the same tag as a label for the gift.
Return the gift to the Guidance Office no later than December 12th.
Our only request is that once you take a tag from the giving tree, you follow through with your commitment to provide a gift. This is a great opportunity for the JP Stevens family to come together to make someone’s holiday a little brighter!
On November 22, 2016, fifty JP Stevens FCCLA- Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America- members made and donated 400 whole wheat rolls for Thanksgiving dinner. The bread dough was made and baked in the Family and Consumer Sciences’ Food and Nutrition classroom by student volunteers. The rolls were cooled and bagged, and then, delivered to Elijah’s Promise, a “soup kitchen” in New Brunswick.
