Doing, Making, Creating at Co-Op Camp As part of this summer’s Co-Op camp at the elementary level, 5th graders, as well as a portion of 4th graders participated in an all-new science curriculum created by Co-Op Camp Science Instructor Carol Ann DelJuidice.  Campers, featured above, studied rocketry design by visiting various websites such as PBS Kids Design Squad and NASA’s website.  They learned about water rocketry and how the design of a rocket impacts aerodynamics and speed and looked at air pressure and how that weighs in.  Each camper was involved in the entire design process from start to finish, drawing prototypes of their rockets, brainstorming with others, building the rockets out of basic household items (bottles, cardboard/paper, Styrofoam and duct tape) and then launching them.  Great stuff!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope the delightful summer weather afforded you a range of interesting options for family time, relaxation, and of course learning! I am pleased to say that we made great strides on many fronts in preparation for the start of another school year. Most visible is the soon-to-be completed capital work at Chatsworth, MAS, and MHS. Students and staff will certainly appreciate new plumbing and electrical systems that underscore our commitment to optimize the learning environment. On a similar note, our effort to redesign the District IT Server/Technology Room will support the use of technology as a critical resource for teaching and learning. Given the challenge of completing large-scale capital improvements in short order, we sometimes face difficult situations. To this end, it appears that completion of the Murray stairs project will continue into the fall. However, we are confident that ongoing project work will not impact learning or safety at Murray Avenue. Continuing our efforts to improve school safety, we are installing new security cameras at MHS and swipe card door systems at all schools to further limit access before and after school. Under the category of small improvements, I hope the new District website design will make it easier to access information and learn what is happening in our schools.

From a strategic perspective, the summer months are critical to ensure a successful school year as the Board of Education and administration focus on identifying “big picture” goals for our school system and plan for new and continuing initiatives. Our primary focus is to create the conditions that support student engagement and achievement, promote a positive school climate, prepare students for college and careers, keep the District on sound financial footing, and engage the full community in the daily life of schools. As strengthening and improving a school district is directly correlated with active participation and valued feedback by stakeholders, we will continue to use a variety of resources to seek opinions from students, staff, parents, and community members on how we can improve our public system. On this note, during the fall we will report on the findings of our high school student engagement and community engagement surveys.
