Congratulations to Mr. Steve Datz and our students (Kyle Dolphin, Brian Burns, and Jackson Ravelli) who presented at the Techspo Conference in Atlantic City to educators from all across the state! They were excited to share their experiences in developing our new Coding Class at the high school and the ways in which these experiences have influenced their potential career goals. They assisted educators from other districts who are interested in developing this type of class and provided some great hands-on practice for conference participants. Thanks also to Mrs. Liz Mennig and Mr. Andrew Swiecicki for all of their support and assistance with this presentation.
Completion of Referendum Projects and Community Day Celebration
After two years of construction, our referendum projects to improve district buildings were completed! Our community has always been proud of its neighborhood schools and these projects have enhanced existing spaces, as well as added some much needed new spaces. On-going construction in our neighborhoods, however, caused some challenges for our friends and neighbors so we wanted to celebrate this milestone with our entire Haddon Township community.
To achieve this goal, we held a "Community Day Open House." All district school buildings were open to visitors for guided and self-guided tours. Some of our students created videos of the new spaces in use by students and staff that we posted throughout the buildings. At each school, we were on hand to speak with community members, answer questions, and guide visitors.
We thank everyone who gave so much time to staff this event: our board members, district administrators, PTA members, custodial staff, and students. Feedback has been quite positive and we hope that our friends, neighbors, new parents, and alumni who stopped by the Open House enjoyed seeing their new and improved community schools!
