Holiday Music Concerts
Music was in the air during the holidays at Cherry Hill and Roosevelt Schools. The chorus, band, and Orff ensemble delighted audience members with magical music delights. Ms. Kara Cuadra, our band instructor for both schools, Mrs. Kelly Dent (CH) and Mr. Brian Urban (RS) led students at performances in each school. Decorations for the performances were crafted by students in the art club at each school under the direction of Ms. Michelle Attardi & Mrs. Del Guidice. Mrs. Bohajian led the Cherry Hill Dance Troupe in some fun dance routines!
Author, Lauren Tarshis, visits Cherry Hill
The Cherry Hill PTO brought the author of the I Survived series, Lauren Tarshis, to Cherry Hill School to talk to students about her life, share stories, and discuss the writing process.
Dancing Through the Decades
Students in third grade at Cherry Hill School performed "Dancing Through the Decades" with the help of Ms. Lauren from Mayo Performing Arts Center.
The Roosevelt PTO hosted a Mad Science assembly for children in grade K-6. Students learned about physical changes which are concerned with energy and states of matter. A physical change does not produce a new substance, although the starting and ending materials may look very different from each other. Changes in state or phase (melting, freezing, vaporization, condensation, sublimation) are physical changes.
Students in 4th grade at Roosevelt School had a grand day of theater with Mr. Mark from Mayo Performing Arts Center.

Winter Concert - Cherry Hill Kindergarten
Music filled the air at the Kindergarten Winter Concert at Cherry Hill School. Students sang songs and dressed up as snowman to delight their families with a sweet musical winter treat!
Lenape Visit at Cherry Hill
Students at Cherry Hill had a special assembly on Lenape life. Studying Native Americans cultures is a part of the social studies curriculum and a fun topic to study! The presenter had many artifacts on display for children to view and touch. He shared the roles of Lenape life for men, women, and children with students and asked students to compare it to their lives today. Life sure was different in Lenape times!
Saving a Generation Program
Sixth grade students from Roosevelt and Cherry Hill learned about the dangers of vaping during the "Saving a Generation Program" presented by New Milford high school students. The presentation covered topics such as vaping terminology, dangers of vaping, illegal substances, and e-cigarette regulations in New Jersey.
Art Gallery at The River Edge Cultural Center
On January 28th the River Edge Cultural Center hosted the 14th Annual Student Art Show Opening, exhibiting works of art from grades K-6 in the River Edge Schools. Ms. Attardi and Mrs. DelGuidice, the Art Teachers in the district, installed over 150 pieces of art from every grade level at the center. It is an honor for students to be selected for this show each year, since each piece is matted and displayed in a real art gallery setting. The realistic and abstract paintings, drawings, and sculptures demonstrate a very high level of artistic ability as well as connections to art history, world cultures, STEAM and other cross-curricular connections. The exhibit was up for viewing until February 15th and the coordinator for the center, Phyllis Angelou, says it is one of their most attended shows each year. The next district art show will be April 23rd during open house at Roosevelt, and Cherry Hill Schools. Every student will have a piece in that show.
Third Grade Wax Museum
Prince, Betsy Ross, and Dr. Seuss were just some of the famous people who showed up at this year's third grade Wax Museum show! As an interdisciplinary Literacy/History unit, students researched a famous person, took notes, created a timeline, and wrote a summary. This information allowed students to get into character for the Wax Museum event which was enjoyed by third grade families!
