Parents of students starting kindergarten in September 2016 are reminded that April 8 is the last day to register for Extended Day Child Care (EDCC) for the 2016-2017 school year.
Extended Day Child Care (EDCC) operates from 7 am to 12:45 pm for children assigned to afternoon kindergarten and from 11:30 am to 6 pm for children assigned to morning kindergarten. Child care is provided before school for the morning kindergartners or after school for the afternoon kindergartners at the School-Age Child Care (SACC) site in their home school.
Sharp, a leader in school sustainability, established one of the Cherry Hill Public Schools' first student-focused green teams more than a decade ago. Founded by teachers Kathy Gilmour and Lisa Feinstein, the Sharp Green Team is composed of 40-60 students from grades 3-5. "It was our desire to educate our students about sustainability and have them bring their passion home to their families and our community," explains Gilmour.
Sustainable Cherry Hill cites the Sharp Green Team's variety of sustainability projects over the years – many with a focus on understanding and decreasing waste – as a large factor in their "Green School of the Month" designation. The students were early adopters of the "Trashless Tuesday" concept, creating a catchy song and using banners to track classroom involvement. The Sharp Green Team recently established a recycling station for students to empty and recycle milk and juice cartons, modeling and monitoring the process for their peers to ensure its success. Other "green" projects have included energy conservation practices throughout the school and a five-month study of what happened to trash when it is buried.
Along with all 19 schools in the District, Sharp will be presenting its latest work in sustainability at the Sustainable Cherry Hill Earth Festival at Croft Farm this Saturday, April 30, from 10 am-2 pm. Don't miss it!
