I invite you to follow the link on our district website “Twins for Autism” and be inspired by our students who truly care about others. Upon following the link, you may think you’re seeing double. Or, perhaps you’ll wonder why there are so many twins in Hardyston. In fact, you are seeing pictures of very generous students who dressed as twins as part of this month’s autism awareness.
The idea for this event originated from three fifth grade students; Allison Beltrani, Elita Buffa and Lindsay Bertoa. These girls were supported by Ms. Kristen Tamke and Mrs. Nicole Meyer. Their intention was to generate some fun activities in the middle school and bring awareness regarding autism. Votes from our middle school students will determine the favorite pair from each grade. The pair from each grade with the most votes will win a pizza party. In the end, by helping our friends with autism, everyone wins!
While we have so many extraordinary students in this district, two deserve special recognition; Christopher Masciarelli and Dylan Harlos. Christopher will be recognized on April 11 as the Superintendent’s Roundtable Student of the Year. He is a diligent worker and a valuable leader at the middle school. Dylan was recognized on March 20 at Sussex County Community College as this year’s Caring Award recipient. As the award’s title suggests, Dylan has great compassion for his fellow students and is always ready to help those in need. Both young men represent our district well.
Finally, as a reminder school will be in session and operating on a full day schedule for April 24 and April 25.
