We love how bright and vibrant our Lloyd Bond classrooms are! It’s important to us that our space reflects the joy and love we have in our community – you can see that joy and love in our students’ faces, in the interactions with our teachers and staff, and we are thrilled to share what a beautiful place CICS Lloyd Bond is. Bringing joy and love to learning every day!
It's "Meet the Staff Monday"!! We start this week off featuring one of the most loyal, humble and hard-working people on our staff. Name: Mr. Redmond Title: Campus Monitor Years in the Educational Industry: 15 Why do you do it?: I grew up with a lot of kids in my family so I have always wanted to work with kids. I love being there for them. Every day I continue to grow and this job has become a part of me. Mr. Redmond has watched countless students grow up, leave and ultimately bring their children back to Bond. Seeing his familiar face makes them feel so much better placing their precious cargo in our care.
Happy Friday Families!! NJ would love if you could support our CICS Lloyd Bond scholars by buying and selling some Affy Tapple products for our annual fundraiser.
