Summer school/camp at Marlboro School
Last week’s information: We are excited to offer summer school/camp this summer. We are in the process of finalizing our programming and more information will come next week. To get you thinking about this opportunity for your child, here are some details:
4 weeks in July, July 5th-30th
4 days/week, Monday-Thursday
8:30-3:30 - Summer School is from 8:30-12:00. Followed by Summer Camp, 12:00-3:30
Families can choose which weeks they would like to participate in.
The Summer School portion of the day will be led by a Marlboro School classroom teacher, and will consist of weekly themes that integrate academics. Students will be grouped by grade level and there will be additional time for students to receive individualized academic support. Our goal is to support students' academics in a fun, project-based way. This is open to ALL students and there will be no cost for this portion of the day.
Summer Camp will be different. This time block will be more like summer camp that may include games, field trips to local watering holes, sports, playing in the woods, etc… There will be a fee for this portion of the day.
Please complete this survey if you are or may be interested in summer programming at our school.
It’s TICK SEASON!
I wanted to let you know that we are already getting reports of ticks on students.
The following 21-22 teaching positions have been posted on SchoolSpring:
Library Media Specialist
Route 9 Corridor
Please click this link for more information on the Route 9 Corridor Project. The report highlights our school as an area of concern. They are still accepting feedback and the more they hear from us, the more they will pay attention to this concern. I few ideas that come to mind are:
Eliminating the passing lane right before the school.
Adding a bike lane on the school side extending from South pond
Narrowing the road, in order to calm or naturally slow down traffic.
Let them hear us and hopefully we can make Route 9 a safer road for our school.
