Welcome to Carl Sandburg

  • Welcome to Carl Sandburg Middle School, a New Jersey State and National School of Character.  Our primary goal each day is to create a positive, safe, inclusive, and enthusiastic learning environment for every student. 


    Our extensive extra curricular offerings provide opportunities for students to be fully immersed in our school community. A list of weekly events can be found on the "Extra Curricular" tab on our homepage.  


    Please take some time to navigate our website. Updates, reminders, events and school news are routinely added.  If items are time sensitive, a RealTime alert will be sent out.  The Back Pack icon and the Real Time Parent Portal will hold all documents, flyers and forms.  The Cougar Chronicle icon will bring you to our interactive, digital school publication which includes features about our students, staff and community.


    A RealTime alert will be sent when the system opens to parents for access to your child's new schedule, bus information, honors and enrichment placements, and upcoming events for September. Please be sure to keep your contact information up to date. The RealTime Parent Portal is a key tool to help follow and track your child’s progress by accessing grades and attendance online. If you have lost your password, a copy can be requested from our guidance department and it will be mailed home to the address indicated on our records. 


    The Documents Tab and Transportation Tab should be visited to see important information that formerly had been sent home in hard copy format. Please visit the Transportation Tab and print out your child's bus information. This paper should accompany your child on the first day of school and will serve as the Bus Pass for that day.


    We are all looking forward to a wonderful school year!
