Teachers Triumphant in 3rd Annual Basketball Game


For the third consecutive year, the Readington teachers were triumphant over the Readington Police Department in the annual Mark Cleere Memorial Scholarship Fund basketball game with a final score of 52-50.  The highlight of the game was Jaime Ericson, a first grade teacher at Whitehouse School, who individually scored 21 points, including six 3-point shots.

The Readington Middle School Pep Band and staff cheerleaders rallied the Readington crowd and led their team to victory.  Both teams, including cheerleaders, appear in the photo.

Mark Cleere was a fifth grade teacher at Holland Brook School and a district basketball coach before his untimely passing in 2014.  Funds from the annual basketball game benefit the Mark Cleere Memorial Scholarship Fund, which provides tuition for students to explore topics of interest at workshops and camps during the summer or the following school year.
