      Paramus Faculty & Staff: Here They Go Again!

      Teachers dressed in costumesThe Paramus Scholarship Show Fund is proud to be celebrating 60 years of fundraising and providing Paramus High School seniors with scholarships. This year’s production of Mamma Mia featured faculty and staff from all over the district who are proud to join the community to support this great cause. The show, directed by retired Paramus teacher, Kathy O'Neil, took place on March 29 and 30 at Paramus High School. The Paramus faculty and staff feature performers and leads in this year's exciting production were Victoria Rice (PHS), Jennifer Jennings (Midland), Robert Marion (Midland), Ginny Amato (retired), and Christin McKenna (transportation). They carried our audience to the beautiful Greek Islands for a musical extravaganza by the hit group ABBA. Mary Hall (East Brook) helped keep things running smoothly supervising a crew of great volunteers backstage. Hats off to the Paramus Scholarship Show and its dedicated volunteers for 60 years of hard work toward a great cause!
