Week of Respect:

The Week of Respect has started off with a bang!  The BMX bike assembly was a huge hit with some of our students.  During the assembly, the BMX team discussed goal setting, perseverance, and the greatness of diversity!  Click on the links below to see some pictures and the rest of the Week of Respect activities.

Lenape Hoops:

Lenape Hoops is a tri-town basketball team (separate entity from the school district) composed of players from not only Netcong, but Byram and Stanhope.  Below is information we have received in case anyone is interested:

Our first round of boys travel basketball tryouts will take place this Friday October 11 at both the Byram Intermediate and Byram Lakes schools.  The schedule will be as follows:

             Byram Intermediate School

6pm - 5th Grade Boys (Head Coach Ryan McDonald)

7pm - 6th Grade Boys (Head Coach Pat Brennan)

8pm - 8th Grade Boys (Head Coach Mike Manzi)


Byram Lakes School

7pm - 4th Grade Boys (Head Coach Keith Wagner)

There will be additional tryouts at each level if the coaches and board deem it necessary.  We have not heard much interest for travel basketball at any girls grade level 5-8

Harvest Festival:

The harvest festival is coming up!!!  Please come to the school on October 11th from 6pm to 8pm.  There will be snacks, games, music, a haunted hallway, and cake walk.  The proceeds will help our 8th graders go to Washington DC.  The PTA is in need of not only volunteers, but people to donate cakes.  If you can help out, it would be greatly appreciated!  Please contact any member of our PTA via our website.
