Stafford Township School District

Building a Better World, One Student at a Time


Superintendent’s Message – September 2016 


This is an exciting time of year for all of us!  The planning and preparation, the anticipation of what the school year will bring and the expectations we have for our students as well as our staff are what makes the start of a new school year remarkable.


I encourage you to work collaboratively and communicate regularly in an effort to inspire our students to do their very best. Parents, take time to listen, encourage and teach your children the value of education.  You are your child’s biggest advocate. Together we can develop a true love of learning in every student. I am extremely proud of the direction our district is going in, as we are on the forefront with our technology, curriculum, and programs for our students.  

Over the next few months you will be receiving information about our upcoming referendum concerning the facility needs of our district, and the impact those needs have on the health and safety of our students.  Our district is in the process of finalizing an efficient and economical solution to our facility needs that will benefit the students and the community as a whole.  We believe “Quality Education is a Community Commitment” and I encourage everyone to vote on December 13.  

Best wishes to all of you and have a wonderful school year!!!!


George J. Chidiac

NJ's 3rd Congressional District Reading Challenge
The deadline for this Reading Challenge is March 17, 2017. It was Congressman MacArthur’s way to encourage students in New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District to read in their free time.  This reading challenge is open to all students in grades K-6th and can be found through his website at: www.MacArthur.House.Gov.  Once completed the student will receive a letter and Congressional Certificate from Congressman MacArthur. 
For safety purposes, we encourage parents to not pick up their child(ren) a half hour before dismissal unless it is for an emergency only.  We encourage you to utilize our bus transportation.
