    Congratulations Bradley Sheridan!
     
     

    Brad Sheridan auditioned for and was selected into the All South Jersey HS Honors Band.  To get into this ensemble takes great time and effort.  Brad was required to memorize all 12 of his Major Scales, memorize all of his Chromatic Scales, learn a collegiate level solo for his horn, and also play a sight reading component of the audition. In the end Brad played his instrument in a blind audition against the best HS trombone players in the South Jersey region. Congratulations Brad!

      Parking
      
    We realize that during many of our events it is difficult to find parking, but it is important to note for all parents/visitors that parking in the fire lane is strictly prohibited.  We have been informed by the Reliance Fire Company and Woodstown Police Department that this needs to stop or tickets will be issued.  Please be reminded that if you are here for an event or at any time during the school day that you must be parked in an approved designated area or you may run the risk of having your car towed/ticketed or both.  We thank you for your cooperation in dealing with this difficult issue.

    As you are aware, many changes have taken place in the cafeteria this year. New mandates from the Federal Government have impacted menu choices, caloric intake, and portion sizes. In addition, new record keeping requirements have resulted in the district having to install a new point of sale system for all cafeteria locations. We want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we transition from our old system, PowerLunch, to our new system. We are now putting in place the final part of our new system, which is called PAYPAMS.  To access more information, please click on this link PAYPAMS.
