​On January 11th, Preschool Advantage staff enjoyed an evening with the Massey Quick Simon Women's Network.  The Massey Quick Simon Women’s Network is a forum created to facilitate discussions with women on topics such as their attitudes towards making financial decisions, saving, investing, and maintaining their lifestyles.

Millburn Middle School's "Students Standing for Students" raises funding for preschool tuition

Ms. D'Alessio, ​an eighth grade English teacher at Millburn Middle School, organized a fundraiser for her students using literature as inspiration to make the world a better place for others. The goal of "Students Standing for Students" was to raise funds to send one child to preschool. Preschool Advantage was chosen as the beneficiary of the funds. Two classes participated in the effort, which took place on October 26 through November 1, raising almost $2,500.  Maddy Bryant, eighth grader and Core peer leader, wrote an article in her school news site, The Millburn Penpoint, about the event, citing reasons why preschool is critical to early development. What an inspiration to know that teachers and students recognize and support our mission! 

The Peck School's "Pasta for Preschool" event funds tuition for three students

On October 25th, The Peck School, a K-8 in Morristown, held an event to benefit Preschool Advantage's mission while building upon their own award-winning character education program. The Class of 2019 hosted "Pasta for Preschool" in Olney Dining Hall. The proceeds raised ticket sales, the "Tricky Tray" auction, and donations that will support the tuition for three children to attend preschool next year, significantly exceeding their $10,000 goal!  We are extremely grateful to the Class of 2019 for planning this wonderful event and to The Peck School, our friends and partners in the community.
