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.
Superintendent's Corner: March
March Madness has arrived! For those of you who enjoy one of the greatest tournaments on television, I hope the games do not disappoint. I would like to remind everyone that with Easter returning to April, Spring Break kicks off with an early dismissal day on Thursday, April 13th. Parent/teacher conferences will be held on Thursday, March 23rd and Friday, March 24th. Please note that our evening conferences will be held on Thursday, March 23rd and afternoon conferences will be held on Friday, March 24th. Both of these days will be early dismissal days. March has certainly come in like a lion, so let’s hope it goes like a lamb!
MEDFORD LAKES SCHOOL DISTRICT
APPLICATION FOR INCLUSIVE PRESCHOOL
Medford Lakes Public Schools invites you to apply for their Preschool program to be held at Nokomis School for the 2017-2018 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. Students 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, 2016 and are toilet trained.
