  • bowling First Annual Elementary Bowling Tournament is Huge Success!

    The first Annual Elementary Bowling Tournament held on Sunday, January the 14th was a success.  Approximately, 180 elementary students took to the lanes to bowl for Hoagies for Humanity.  The kids seemed to have a great time and, as a result of their efforts, we will be able to commit over 100 hoagies to our Hoagies for Humanity goal of 1500 hoagies for people in need in Washington Township and South Jersey, headed by Inspira Network. 


    We’d like to first thank our elementary students and the High School Students in Action (SIA) club for their commitment to the cause.  As well, we like to thank all of the parents for assisting our SIA teens in organizing the lanes and in helping us through the few hurdles that presented themselves.  As always, when there is a first-time event, unexpected situations arise and our SIA students and parents helped meet the challenge.  We’d also like to thank Brunswick Zone for their help and cooperation.


    We will certainly be implementing several changes for next year; but, overall, this sort of event is measured by the enthusiasm of the kids and the impact on the cause for which it is held.  Given that perspective, the Elementary Bowling Tournament was a major success. 


    Thanks again, and we hope to see you next year!

    Parent/Guardian Resources for Understanding Your Child's PARCC Score

    PARCC Your child's results on the first-year PARCC test (administered in the 2014-15 school year) are arriving! 
    The PARCC tests measure whether students are meeting new, higher academic standards and mastering the knowledge and skills they need to progress in their K-12 education beyond. They test more complex skills, like critical-thinking, persuasive writing, and problem-solving - skills that were not measured on previous state tests. Your child's score may look different or lower on these new tests.  That does not mean students are learning less. It means the tests have changed and are asking students to meet a higher bar. Our District is providing parents and guardians access to a comprehensive PowerPoint presentation and a number of other informative links that will provide greater detail on PARCC testing and how to interpret your child's PARCC Assessment Score Report. In addition to these resources, we will be providing informational sessions for District parents/guardians in the coming weeks.
