Virtual Learning From Home
On Monday March 16, 2020 the River Edge Public Schools shuttered its doors as a result of COVID-19. Learning, however, continued remotely through Google Classroom, pre-recorded video lessons, and Zoom sessions with teachers. The students of River Edge rose to the challenge, continued their learning, and produced amazing work!
The students in Ms. Otis' class created a product and produced a commercial for their persuasive writing unit. Click here to see Emma Arabia's S'more Cake Kit Commercial! Great job, Emma!
Students in Ms. Fenarjian's class were working on Science STEAM challenges. Ethan Lai constructed a bridge out of cardboard, toilet paper rolls, and popsicle sticks. Watch his video to see if his bridge is earthquake resistant. Great job, Ethan!
Kids in the Kitchen
Ms. Poole's Kindergarten students enjoyed a fun day in the kitchen cooking with their teacher virtually! Students explored capacity and "how-to" sequencing steps while creating delicious mug cakes for their families. Do we have some future chefs in the making?
Light It Up Blue - Autism Awareness Month
Each year during the month of April, students in the River Edge Public schools celebrate Autism Awareness Month with events to educate its students and raise public awareness about autism. Did you know it has been almost 50 years since the Autism Society held the first National Autism Awareness month in April of 1970? Light it up BLUE for Autism Awareness!
River Edge Teachers on Learning Live
River Edge's own, Mrs. Katie O'Brien and Ms. Lauren Proda, taught lessons for the children of New Jersey on Learning Live. NJTV Learning Live is a unique on-air instructional series to help children learn remotely. Created by NJTV in partnership with the NJEA and the NJ Department of Education, hour-long classes for grades 3-6 were taught by NJ public school teachers. Lessons include math, science, English language arts, social studies, physical education and more.
Virtual School Spirit Week
Students at Cherry Hill and Roosevelt Elementary enjoyed sprit week from March 30th - April 3rd. Students were encouraged to stay healthy, active, and positive together by wearing motivational t-shirts, favorite sports apparel, workout gear, and school spirit wear. Students also wrote thank you notes to show their appreciation for healthcare workers, grocery clerks, truck drivers, and the military.
Earth Day Celebrations From Home
Students at Roosevelt and Cherry Hill School celebrated Earth Day on April 22, 2020. Earth Day is an annual global event that celebrates the environmental movement and raises awareness about pollution and ways to maintain a clean habitat. We can do our part and help make our Earth a cleaner place to live!
Let the Games Begin!
Students enjoyed a "screen-free" day by participating in Cherry Hill Fun Day and Roosevelt School Pride Day on Monday, June 15th. Students had the opportunity to choose fun activities such as outdoor physical challenges, scavenger hunts, reading challenges, and more. A big thank you to our main organizers - Mrs. Rigg, Mrs. Haggerty, and Ms. Gant!
Beach Day with Ms. Kim's Kindergarten Class
6th Grade Virtual Graduations
Dr. Ben-Dov, building principals, school counselors, teachers, office staff, photographers, and classroom aides visited the front yards of our 6th grade graduates. Each and every family visited was warm, welcoming, excited, emotional, and above all grateful! In addition to being grateful to their current teachers, they often mentioned in conversation previous teachers who had an impact on the children's lives. We are so incredibly proud of our graduates and we wish you much success as you enter River Dell Middle School.
There WILL Be Music!
A few 5th grade instrumental students recorded themselves playing Pomp and Circumstance as a send-off for the 6th grade instrumental students. They worked so hard, and it's not a piece Ms. Cuadra had a chance to teach them this year, so they learned it on their own. Amazing talent, fifth grade instrumental students!
