    Tutoring NCNW-Rahway remains committed to our community and we are pleased to share that the Village Tutoring program will resume on January 19th.
    Here is the sign-up link for the Parent/Student form for the upcoming session which is slated to run from January 19th to February 26th.  Please share as much as possible, with the GC school population and encourage participation.
    We are starting Session 2 with 3 tutors, scheduled for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday 4-5 pm.  This timing seemed to work best based on attendance at our pilot session held in the Fall. The program will now be open and available to students from other schools as well.
    Please contact me with any questions or concerns and have a great week!

    Dear Parents and Guardians,
    The ability to effectively communicate to our Grover Cleveland families is of utmost importance, especially during these unsettling times. The NJDOE has not suspended the NJ Drill Law N.J.S 18A:41-1 during this Covid 19 pandemic. Our school is still conducting emergency drills.
    Grover Cleveland School will soon be conducting a Notification Drill in an effort to identify the capability of the school to effectively communicate emergency messaging as well as  up-to-date general information regarding our school activities.  To that end, we are asking all GCS families to please verify that your cell and home numbers, as well as your email addresses are correct in your Power School Parent Portal. If they have changed, please update them immediately in your Parent Portal. This is very important for the ongoing safety of our students and their families! If you are aware of any family that is not receiving communication from our school, please have them notify the main office at  732-396-1040 or 732-396-1213.
    If you have difficulties updating your contact information, please contact the main office at 732-396-1040 or 732-396-1213 for assistance.
    Thank you for your continued cooperation and support!

    Tutoring Program
    School Reopening
    NCNW-Rahway Village Tutor initiative
    Click on the link below to answer the questions on the form 
    NCNW Rahway Section will be providing help to our community's youth during these trying times in the form of homework and study help. The tutoring sessions are scheduled to be for about 1 hour a week and would be attended by small groups (3 -4) of Rahway Elementary, Middle School, and High School students. At this time, our pilot program anticipates covering the first marking period from October 19, 2020, to November 23, 2020.

    The subject matters to be covered are English/Language Arts and Math. Most of the sessions will take place virtually. Tutors will be patient, supportive as they guide the student and try to make learning fun. A reliable computer or mobile device that can handle the audio and visual aspects of an online Zoom meeting environment is a must.

    So, if you are interested in making use of this service for at least 1-hour a week, kindly complete this form in its entirety and we will be sure to contact you.

    Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at

    Dear Parents and Families:

    Did you know? Reading just 20 minutes a day exposes your child to about 1.8 million words per year. Reading helps students develop a stronger vocabulary, and in addition, students who read for pleasure average higher grades in English, mathematics, science, and history!

    Encourage your child to read books!
