Superintendent's Corner: April
PARCC testing is in full swing as first full week of April sees our 4th and 5th grade students locking in. The 7th and 8th graders will be testing after we return from Spring Break, which happens to begin with an early dismissal day on Thursday, April 13th. We will closed Friday, April 14th through Friday, April 21st. Classes resume on Monday, April 23rd. As a reminder, we are very happy to have Det. Sgt. Kohler, of the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office, coming to Neeta on Wednesday, April 26th, for his technology safety presentation. To close out the month, we will be traveling to Washington, D.C. with our 8th graders. I know they are excited and looking forward to it.
Finally, as the weather breaks, please remind your students to wear their helmets while riding to and from school. Before you know it, spring will have a hold of us and everything will be in bloom! I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Spring Break.

The Team America Rocketry Challenge
The Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) is a rocket contest where students build/design/launch their very own rockets from scratch. In order to comply with the requirements for TARC, they need to keep their rockets under a certain gross weight/ reach a certain altitude (775 feet) and have it return to Earth within 41-43 seconds all the while having an egg survive the trip along with the rocket separating into two pieces at apogee. Both of those pieces need to descend with some sort of parachute/streamer. Students have been working on their rockets since November and all qualifying scores need to be submitted by April 3rd. The top 100 scores in the nation closest to the height and time parameters will be invited to Washington for a final launch in May.
