Greetings Medford Lakes and welcome back! I hope that your summer was full of fun, family, and relaxation. Can you believe that September is already in the rearview mirror and fall is at our front door? As we move into October, I wanted to remind everyone of a few key dates. Home & School (HSA) will be meeting on Thursday night, October 4th at 7:00 p.m. in our Neeta library, as well as Tuesday, October 9th at 8:30 a.m., also in the Neeta library. The Board of Education meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 17th at 6:30 p.m., and the Medford Lakes Education Foundation (MLEF) will be closing out the month with their meeting on Monday, October 29th at 7:00 p.m. in the Neeta library.
It was great seeing so many of the parents walking the halls of Nokomis and Neeta during our Back to School Nights (BTSN). With the possibility of sensory overload, I ask that you take the time to visit our school’s website for any information you may have missed. Under the PARENT link you will find the following: information on HSA & MLEF; Student expectations and the Discipline Code; the Parent/Student Handbook; access to the Realtime Parent Portal; and school calendars.
I hope you had the opportunity to notice a few of the upgrades we have made over the summer. Many thanks to the entire Medford Lakes community for supporting the referendum. Without you, we would not have been able to make these changes. Concerning the new building entry procedures, a letter will be coming out shortly. We understand the procedures will be new and may take a little time to get used to; however, they are in place to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
Finally, I wanted to recognize our new staff members. At the Nokomis School I would like to introduce Devon Mohler (School Counselor), Angela Mannino (2nd Grade), and Stacey Smarz (Basic Skills). At the Neeta School, I would like to introduce Lauren Ferguson (Math), Julia McKinnies (ELA), Holly Fisher (School Counselor), and Jennifer Summerville (LDT-C). We welcome them and wish all our staff the best this year.
Our staff and I are looking forward to another year of working with you and your students. Thank you all in advance for your continued support and we hope you have a great 2018-19 school year!

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:
The current tuition is $3,000.00, and is subject to change. Children will be selected on a lottery basis, if necessary. No transportation will be provided. We are looking for typically-developing students who turn four by October 1, 2018 and are toilet trained.
