Director's Monthly Memo


    As Thanksgiving approaches I think it is important to pause and take stock of the things in your life that you have to be thankful for. For my part one thing I am thankful for is the outstanding group of educators I have the privilege to lead each day as Director of Fine & Performing Arts and Business Education. The educators in Bayonne are among the finest in the state and I cannot say enough about them.


    That said this month I want to encourage students when planning their next step after high school to carefully consider what truly drives, excites, and motivates them before selecting a college or career. What Steve Jobs said rings true for me and I encourage students to take heed of what Mr. Jobs said and seek a career that you can be thankful to have each day. You will never regret the decisions that you make if you are truly doing what you love.


    Have a happy, healthy and safe Thanksgiving.

    Tim Craig, Director of Fine & Performing Arts & Business Education
