we prepare for a new school year, I look forward to the new and exciting
programs we have in place for our staff and students. We have been busy this summer painting and
making repairs in our schools and two major projects at the High School are
our staff and students return for the new school year, they will find that the
auditorium at the High School is being fully renovated with new seating,
lights, sound system, and a new entrance.
This new improvement should be completed by mid-October of this
year. The new extension to the High
School has also begun, but will not be completed until September 2020. It will include eleven (11) additional
classrooms, a large multi-purpose room, storage area, and office space.
student achievement remains our number one goal, we continue to take the
necessary steps to enhance our curriculum by purchasing a new Language Arts
Program (Into Reading) for our elementary students in grades Kindergarten
through 6, and we have new textbook adoptions at the High School in AP
Government, AP Physics, AP US History, Health, Business, and Psychology. At the Middle School, we will be offering our
7th and 8th grade students a new Youth Based Services
Program to extend our counseling and family services.
would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mrs. Christa McBride,
the new Assistant Principal at Schools No. 5 and No. 2. There will also be 42 new staff members
joining the Winslow Township School District family.
Our School Board has made a commitment to
provide our students with the best educational experience possible. The
teachers and administrators will support that goal by increasing achievement
for all students, improving instruction, creating a safe and supportive
environment for students, and improving communication with our parents and
community. As we continue to build a
strong partnership with all stakeholders, our mutual objective is to build a
strong educational school system for the children of Winslow Township. I look forward to seeing you in our schools
this year and we thank you for your continuous support.
