Pre-K visit the Medford Lakes Police Department
Our Pre-K students had a great day today visiting the Police Station. Officer Mark and LT. McGinnis were amazing with the kids. Their favorite part by far was the "time out" room. :) It was also a beautiful day for a walk through Medford Lakes. They got to see a leaf truck, geese and their babies. They enjoyed the day learning something new!
Teams of Mrs. Agin's students formed rocket companies and competed in a commercial endeavor to construct rockets capable of launching payloads, astronaut crews, and even space tourists to Earth orbit. Through a strong interdisciplinary approach, balancing science with technology, engineering, and mathematics, students developed a budget, purchased construction materials, and tracked expenditures while designing and constructing their water rocket. They then had to test the rocket for stability and also filled out specification sheets. Finally, the teams launched their rockets and conducted a cost/benefit (altitude vs. cost) ratio in their lab report.

APPLICATION FOR INCLUSIVE PRESCHOOL
Medford Lakes Public Schools invites you to apply for their Preschool program to be held at Nokomis School for the 2018-2019 school year. The program is half-day, 5 days per week and follows the Curiosity Corner curriculum, one of the five approved programs used in the state of New Jersey. Curiosity Corner provides a developmental approach emphasizing language and literacy, as well as physical, emotional and interpersonal development, math, science, social studies, music, movement, and art. The literacy-focused, problem-solving program provides teachers and children with structured thematic units that include concrete, interactive experiences with detailed instructions and materials. Effective instruction is built around the concept of cooperative learning within a carefully designed and supportive structure.
An inclusion program serves children who are typically developing and children with special needs, in a general education classroom, with services delivered programmatically in the natural classroom environment. For more information about NJDOE preschool curriculum, go to:
