NJEA Grant

FREA Happenings


The FREA utilized NJEA Pride grants to show support in our community.  Thank you to Marie Corfield for taking on this task and Sue Vala for helping to disperse the signs around town.  The grants enabled us to purchase 100 lawn signs that were put around each of the schools’ entrances as well as other prominent places around town.  The signs were printed in English and Spanish. 

We also purchased 350 earbuds that will be included in the meals that will be picked up at schools on Monday, June 22.  A small but meaningful way to show our students that we miss them.
