Back to School Night

September 24th, 2019 from 5:30pm-7:00pm

CCFA "Read to Achieve" celebrates our 5th year at the Gregory School. We are excited to continue our mission "to close the achievement gap" serving the needs of students and their entire family in partnership with the dynamic leadership team of Ms. Harris, School Principal, Ms. Constanza Vice Principal, Ms. Jacquelynn M. Rice CCFA Site Liaison, Ms Patricia Planter Parent Liaison, Dr. Keith Miles and our newest partner Princeton Blairstown. We love the children and families, teachers and staff in the Gregory School Community they are all incredible!

September 24th was "Back to School Night" at Gregory. CCFA hosted three of our community partners:
Boy Scouts of America, Washington Crossing Council, Troop 8
Girls Scouts of Central and South Jersey, Troop 70231

Each organization provided information for students and parents regarding their programs and how to register to participate. CCFA’s "Read to Achieve" provided free books for students and parents to inspire students to read everyday for 30 minutes.
