Dr. Meloche has issued an important letter regarding the New Jersey Student Learning Assessment for Science (NJSLA-S) field test, to be administered to 5th, 8th and 11th grade students in May. This assessment replaces the NJASK Sciene and NJ Biology Competency Test (NJBCT) administered in previous years. This letter details the process required for refusing the test. Refusals must be received by building principals by Friday, May 4, 2018.
The Cherry Hill Fire Department has been a partner with the Cherry Hill School District providing fire safety education for many years. In 2014 we presented a new program entitled "Safety Smart". Safety Smart is a school-based curriculum that links teachers with community safety experts and parents. Safety Smart is being taught in grades 1, 3, 5 and 6 as part of the Physical/Health Education Program.
The goal of the Safety Smart Program is not only to teach students valuable safety skills, but also to have the students put these skills to use outside of the school environment. A valuable tool to help us evaluate the effectiveness of the program is the parent survey. We ask parents/guardians to please take a few minutes to complete an online Parent Survey so we can determine how, if at all, the instruction is being put to use.
Select summer enrichment classes are still open at Cherry Hill High School East in drama, art, photography, graphic design, model rockets, knitting, chess and more for Cherry Hill residents entering grades 5-11.

To the Magnificent Mann Staff!
Just taking a moment to thank you for all of your passion, dedication, and effort you put into your work on a daily basis.
Teaching is not just a job, it is a calling... and one that, while rewarding, is also mentally, emotionally, and physically exhausting. Yet, each day, you come to Mann with a smile on your face, ready to serve the varying needs of each and every student in our school. And for that, I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.
As the Principal of this building, I could not be more proud of the work that you do and how much you have grown as a faculty since I started here five years ago. You support each other personally and professionally – always looking for ways to grow and learn together. Last weekend, I ran into parents at the Earth Day Festival and at the grocery store, and each time they shared stories about how much they love their current teacher or ones from the past. I stand in awe at the building and community atmosphere YOU have created through all of your hard work and love.
Wishing you a Happy Teacher Appreciation Week – and an incredible end to the 2015-2016 academic year!
Thank you for you.
