FOR TOMORROW
SCHOOL REPORT’S – June 2010
GLENWOOD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Kindergarten
Kindergarten enjoyed a wonderful field trip to Milky Way Farm. We got to see a working
farm in action. We got to pet a calf, lamb, sheep, goat and chicken. We learned the
difference between chicken eggs and duck eggs. We also saw where the milk we buy
from Wawa comes from. We even saw how they milk the cows using a robot and a
computer.
First Grade
Glenwood’s first grade has been learning the steps of the Scientific Method through a
combination of children’s literature and the Balancing and Weighing Unit. The students
are already familiar with reading comprehension strategies such as Using Prior
Knowledge and Making Predictions before reading. Using a new model that compares
these reading strategies with the steps of the Scientific Method, students are better able
to understand and make meaning from the science investigations in the Balancing and
Weighing Unit. For example, students are shown that making a Hypothesis in science
before conducting an experiment is very similar to making a Prediction before reading a
new book or section of story. Children’s literature is used to establish the connection
between the steps in Reading Comprehension and the Scientific Method to give students
a reference point for understanding both processes. As a result, students are better able
to articulate the reasons for doing scientific investigations and, later, to summarize their
findings.
Second Grade
Second grade classes participated in a "PowWow" as a culminating event to their study of
Native Americans. There were activities reflecting the different regions of North America.
The children rotated through centers, or stations, and completed a craft or game at each.
Sandpainting, shield making, turtle shell rattle models, a stick game, food tasting and
"buffalo hide" pictograph painting were among the activities children enjoyed. Parents
came in to help children complete their crafts.

6/24/2010
Third Grade
In June, a flyer was sent home to promote writing during the summer months. Glenwood
students were encouraged to write poems, stories, songs, or informational pieces.
Students know their pieces will be displayed throughout the building beginning in
September. Some of the writing will also be displayed on the Glenwood website.
Fourth Grade
The fourth grade students participated in the first ever, Colonial Day celebration. While
cycling through three stations, the students learned about life during colonial times. In
one station, the students visited a colonial schoolhouse and learned about the lessons,
discipline, and etiquette of the time. Students used hornbooks and read from a page of
the New England Primer. The also participated in a writing lesson and learned about
appropriate colonial manners. In another station, students used math skills to correctly
measure the ingredients for baking bread. After the bread was baked, students enjoyed
their bread and butter as a snack. In the third station, students learned how to write with
a quill pen and ink. They also learned about jobs and responsibilities of women, men,
and children of colonial times. The event was a success and showcased what the
students have learned about the history of Pennsylvania. The students took a field trip to
Riverbend Environmental Education Center. Here they engaged in hands-on activities in
order to learn about the life of the Lenni Lenape Indians of Pennsylvania. Students
learned how this group of Native Americans hunted, fished, and foraged for food, built
canoes out of tree trunks, made tools, and learned lessons and stories from the tribe’s
elders. Running and Walking Club ended on June 9th. The group of twenty-four fourth
and fifth grade students logged approximately 160 miles over the eight week club!
LIBRARY
In the summer, in addition to picking up a baseball glove or a beach towel, we’d all like
our students to pick up a good book. To support summer reading, Library Technician
Kathy Cook held a Scholastic “buy-one-get-one-free” book fair at Glenwood the second
week of June. A “family night” was held at the beginning of the fair. Many titles featuring
our students’ favorite characters, authors, and series were available. Children went home
with bags stuffed full of great books at an incredible discount!
Glenwood’s students participate enthusiastically in our summer reading program. At the
end of school in June, each student receives a grade-level list of suggested summer
reading titles, a reading record form, and a bookmark. This year, library technician Kathy
Cook is including information on Borders Books’ “Summer Reading Double-Dog Dare.” If
students read ten books and turn in their forms at any Borders or Waldenbooks store,
they get to choose a free book. As students turn in their completed Glenwood reading
records in September, they receive a certificate of achievement and a prize. The reading
records are used to compile “Top Ten” lists of children’s favorites by grade level, posted
on the bulletin board outside the library, and a special award is given to the student in
each grade who reads the most books over the summer.
Glenwood library technician Kathy Cook participated in the third session of this year’s
Delaware County Book Review Program at Upper Darby High School. Publishers provide
copies of brand new titles, and librarians may keep those books they review. Mrs. Cook
obtained twenty-one recently-published titles for the Glenwood library, including nonfiction, novels, and picture books valued at over $300.00! Library technician Kathy Cook

arranged for Juliann Kutchen, fantastic new children’s librarian at Middletown Library, and
her partner Laura Kuchmay to come to Glenwood and make grade-level presentations to
our students about their summer reading program, “Make a Splash at Your Library.” Ms.
Kutchen and Ms. Kuchmay performed in a humorous skit and discussed the many
activities provided to keep kids motivated, entertained, and reading during the summer
months at the Middletown Library!
Art
Glenwood students helped to celebrate Second Saturday by exhibiting work at O'Malley's
Ice Cream Pub on State Street in Media. Glenwood Art Teacher, Keith Sharp, was on
hand to greet and talk with students and parents during a reception that evening.
PHYSICAL EDUCATION
The children of Glenwood were pleased to welcome a second student teacher from West
Chester University, Mr. Tim Kershaw. Tim spent his first seven weeks at Penncrest, but
is making a wonderful adjustment. He’s tying shoelaces, reminding children to make
“good choices”, and getting into the flow of elementary school life.
Fitness and teamwork continue to be areas of emphasis. The children have had the
opportunity to flex their “brain muscles” by participating in a variety of group activities
challenging their problem solving skills. The fifth grade students are discovering that 3v3
flag football requires both physical fitness and cooperation. They may even be acquiring
some empathy for McNabb and company.
INDIAN LANE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Parent-Teacher Group Support
It’s hard to believe that another school year is coming to a close. Our students have
grown tremendously since September and are ready to move on to the next level of their
academic career. Our year was a great one. Our PTG parents have once again come
through with support for our students in the form of Field Trips, Assemblies, After School
activities and assorted events. Our end-of year activities would not be possible without
the continuous support of parents that enabled many great things to happen.
The Indian Lane PTG raised more money than was planned during its first annual Run
the Lane event, and helped the school in the following major ways during this time of
economic distress:
1. Funding numerous assemblies for our students ($4,000)
2. Purchasing seven Net books (laptops) for the library ($3,500)
3. Purchasing replacement bulbs for our projectors to use with Smart Boards ($1,200 –
they are very expensive!)
4. Will purchase and install a Smart Board for the library ($2,000)
There is no way to put a monetary value on the countless hours of volunteer help that
parents have given to our school. We are indeed lucky to have such a supportive
community.

Lunch Lady Appreciation Day
Who better than to be served a nice sit-down lunch than our hard-working, ever smiling
Indian Lane Lunch Ladies?! Our Principal, Mr. Bill Bennett and his team of merry
volunteers, Mrs. Martha Phillips & Mrs. Debbie Reischer, donned their super-sanitary
rubber gloves and served lunch to the 4th graders, so our very happy & hungry Lunch
Ladies could dine in style. The Bennett/Phillips/Reischer team did an outstanding job in
servicing the students and lots of smiles occurred during the assembly line serving of hot
turkey sandwich & whipped potatoes! A very BIG thank you is extended to our very
special team of cafeteria workers, Jennifer Clements, Maureen Dooner, Sue Grant, Amy
McKernan, & Carol Neil, led by Supervisor Louise Lorenz. Another set of thank yous
goes to our IL good sports, Mr. Bennett, Mrs. Phillips & Mrs. Reischer! Lunch Lady

Kindergarten
The kindergarten classes visited the three first grades to get a glimpse of the good things
to come. The children were allowed to look around the room and find out from their first
grade counterparts what first grade will be like. The teachers hope that this makes the
transition from kindergarten to first grade a little less scary. They also had the opportunity
to have lunch in the cafeteria and receive instructions on buying lunch for the very first
time. They also visited Arasapha Farms on Friday, June 11th, for a field trip on the farm.
First Grade
The first grade visited the Philadelphia Zoo as a culminating event for our organisms unit.
We have all been busy with our writing, too. Each class worked on developing their
research skills. They then wrote pieces on various topics such as rain forests, oceans and
dinosaurs. In math we are working on counting by twos, fives and tens. We also continue
to work on gaining mastery of our math facts. The children participated in a
detailed reading assessments called the DRA2. These assessments yield information
which will be passed onto the children's second grade teachers. Field Day 2010 was
another great success. The weather was sunny and the children greatly enjoyed the
various races and games.
Second Grade
We have been working on place value which leads to addition and subtraction with
regrouping. We are working on writing poetry using famous authors as mentors and
sharing with our class. We are learning about Native Americans and their history.
Third Grade
From Sacagawea to Elvis, third grade hosted some famous people in history last week.
The students chose a famous person and learned about their contributions to history, and
for some, the obstacles they may have overcome in their life. The students completed a
poster containing a diary entry as their person, a timeline and a diamante poem. As a
culminating activity the students dressed as their person and prepared a speech about
their life to present to an audience of peers and parents. On a beautiful summer-like day
the entire third grade went on a field trip to RIDE THE DUCKS in Philadelphia. This was
in conjunction with their Social Studies unit on Philadelphia and the introduction to
Pennsylvania for fourth grade.

Fourth Grade
Fourth Grade had a great trip to Harrisburg, Hershey, and Lancaster. We were able to
tour the State Capitol Building, and meet with our state representative, Tom Killion, and
our state senator, Dominic Pileggi. Our tour of the state capitol is in connection with the
study of Pennsylvania and of the branches of government. In addition to studying about
the political aspects of the state, we also study the economic and cultural aspects.
Consequently, we take a short tour of Hershey, since we study the impact of Milton
Hershey, and we also get to enjoy a family style dinner in the heart of Amish country.
Fourth graders from Mrs. Haskell’s class presented their PA travel projects to friends and
families this month. This is a culminating project for our study of Pennsylvania history,
cities, culture and geography.
Students did informational research and created
Powerpoint travel presentations to encourage visitors to come to Pennsylvania.
Presentations were posted to our website to be viewed by friends and family.
Fifth Grade
Fifth graders had Colonial Day. Each student created a colonial personality, researched
a trade, put all their information together into a speech, dressed up as their character and
presented to parents and their classmates. This is in conjunction with our study of the
Colonies as well as speaking and listening skills. It also fits into the writing standards.
Mrs. Hendrixson’s class visited City Team and delivered donations collected at the school
throughout the month. The fifth grade students visited Washington, D.C. and experienced
our nation’s documents and precious artifacts at the Smithsonian. They visited
Washington D.C.’s National Park, the monuments, the White House, The Capital Building
and the Smithsonian. It is hard to believe that our fifth graders will be moving on to
Springton Lake in the fall. We held a Fifth Grade Farewell Assembly with parents and
teachers in attendance. Select students were recognized for various accomplishments
and all students received a Certificate of Completion. Following the assembly, all fifth
graders were treated to a luncheon hosted by the PTG.
Field Day
The rain held off this year for our most anticipated event of the year, Field Day. Mr. Frank
and his group of excellent volunteers prepared numerous wonderful events such as water
balloon toss, parachute, tug of war and the 50 yard dash. A good time was had by all.
Check out the pictures at www.rtmsd.org/indianlane.
Run The Lane a Success
Our PTG sponsored the first-ever “Run the Lane 5K Run/Walk.” More than 200 runners
and walkers took part in the event and a great time was had by all. Chairperson Sue
Dermott, PTG Vice-President, coordinated the numerous aspects of the activity. The
PTG provided child care, had a moon bounce for children, and sold water and pretzels.
The PTG voted to donate one-half of the profits to the Norm Kelly Smiles Scholarship
Fund - $2,250!
MEDIA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Book Swap
Each year Media School has a Book Swap. Students bring in books that they have read
and are ready to pass along to another reader. Volunteer parents spend hours organizing
School Reports

the donated books in bright boxes. They are grouped by author, genre or topic. This year
we collected 7300 beautiful books that are on their way to new homes. Class totals are
tallied and that determines how many books students can select. In some classes,
students are taking home more than 20 books each. Leftovers are donated to charities.
Book Swap, one of our school traditions, is a great way to encourage summer reading.
Smartboards
Due in part to the generosity of one of our support staff members, we now have a
SMARTBOARD in every classroom. This addition has significantly changed instruction.
The students find the SMARTBOARDS to be engaging and accessible. Grade levels have
spent much time collaborating on ways to enhance the use of their SMARTBOARDS.
Many staff members will be participating in E-tool Academies this summer to hone their
skills with the SMARTBOARDS.
Title 1 Family Event
We hosted our spring Title 1 Family event. Nearly 100 family members of Title 1 students
attended and enjoyed a delicious barbeque dinner. Children played games in the gym
while adults heard information about the local public library and practiced our technology
based programs: KidBiz, RazKids, Compass Learning/Odyssey. The goal of the evening
was to provide Title I families with reading and math tools and resources that they can
use at home during the summer break. We also ordered summer skill books for every
student who attended.
Legacy Project
As part of Media Borough’s Earth Day festivities, there was an official dedication of the
“Leaves and Fishes” legacy project created by our fifth graders. The ceramic pieces were
created in art class and installed by our school “kitchen Garden” that is adjacent to the
Edgmont Street parking area. The project evolved from a partnership with The Stroud
Water Research Center. It included a commitment of funding from Jamie Wyeth and his
wife, Phyllis. Through science and art, we are helping the students understand the
connections between trees and aquatic life. The art installation contains shiny leaves
hanging on a mobile which discourages birds from visiting the garden below. Ceramic
renderings of local fish line the chain link fence. Art serves a purpose and enhances the
vibrancy of our town, Media. Our artists of the month are Connor Meek (“Paul Klee
Fish”), Trynatea Dunbar (“Medieval Dragon”), and Ruby Van Zanten (“Leaves and
Fishes”).
Lego Club Coming Soon
One of our goals this year was to increase parent participation through the cosponsorship of clubs. One of our parents, Cheryl O’Neil, secured a $500 donation from
The Media Rotary Club to purchase LEGOs. Her plan is to have “free builds” that will
recreate some of Media’s buildings.
Earth Fest
Teaching our students to have an interest and awareness in environmental topics is a
priority at our school. Since Earth Day (the 40th Anniversary) was during PSSA testing, we
designated the week of May 17 as Earth Week. The culminating event, Earth Fest,
happened on Friday, May 21.

6/24/2010
We had more than 20 fabulous presenters speak with our children. Topics included
“green” architecture, the engineering aspects of a “green building,” basic recycling,
composting, environmental testing, butterflies, trees, solar power, wind energy,
geothermal heating and cooling, biking from Alaska to the tip of South America, and Fair
Trade. Some of the groups represented were The Media Environmental Advisory
Committee (Addie Cianella and Walt Cressler), The Pennsylvania Resource Council, The
Stroud Water Research Center (Vivian Williams), The Tyler Arboretum (Martha Moore
and Maria Wanenchuk), Transition Town (Sari Steuber and Don Hull), The Great Valley
Nature Center, and Media’s Fair Trade (Ira Josephs). Children and guests were greeted
by inspirational quotes that lined our walkway. Eco-tips and eco-facts were shared during
our morning broadcasts. Grade levels selected appropriate films for viewing for a “green”
movie day. We thanked our guests by giving them Media shopping bags. Our Garden
Club sponsors, Amy Johnson and Meg MacCurtin, gave “garden tours” during the week.
They showed the children our school gardens and compost area and told them about the
new Farmers’ Market that happens in Media each Thursday. They also treated the
children to healthy smoothies. Vivian Williams, from The Stroud Water Research Center,
took some of the younger children on tree walks. As part of the Earth Fest celebration,
several art classes created a collaborative mural to enhance our playground. It is made
mostly of re-used plastic. The mural depicts two children enjoying the outdoors and
releasing butterflies into the adjacent butterfly garden. All of our Earth Fest presenters
commented on how much our children already knew and how interested they were. We
plan to make this an annual event.
Music News
Something new! A Google Earth Tour was added to our fourth grade Beethoven unit this
spring. Students were able to virtually travel from Beethoven’s home in Germany to the
city of Vienna, retracing the maestro’s steps on an actual trip he made in 1787 to meet
Mozart. Then the children wrote postcards to share their adventures. Grades one and
two are experiencing songs, stories, timbres, and rhythms from the African continent. Our
second graders will perform a rondo based on the song Kou Ri Lengay from Tanzania.
The performance will include many percussion instruments.
Annual School Picnic and Movie Night
Our PTG partnered with The Media Recreation Committee to add a new twist to our
annual end of school Family Picnic. They combined the picnic with an outdoor showing of
the movie “Cloud with a Chance of Meatballs” on Barrall Field. It was a really fun event
that was enjoyed by many of our families. The PTG served ice cream and bottled water to
all who attended.
Literacy Lab Class Visits
Reading teacher, Carol Mitchell, visited Jackie Arbutina’s literacy lab classroom at Indian
Lane. She was able to observe Mrs. Arbutina’s fifth graders using multiple strategies to
build comprehension while reading “Time for Kids.” Students working independently
applied a coding strategy where they used post-it notes to mark information they already
knew, information that was new to them, and something about which they had a question.
Students working with Mrs. Arbutina had opportunities to brainstorm, discuss their
understanding, and do some coding. These colleague to colleague visits are very
beneficial.

Field Day
Field Day is always fun (and hot!) and this year was no exception. Mrs. Shapero, our
physical education teacher, planned station activities that were based on cooperation and
good sportsmanship. The children and the spectators had a great time. The older children
acted as helpers during the afternoon events for the primary grade children.
Field Trips
The end of the year is a time for many educational and fun field trips. Kindergarten spent
a day at The Rocky Run YMCA and they saw “Beauty and the Beast” at The Media
Theatre. First grade saw “Charlotte’s Web” at The Upper Darby Performing Arts Center.
Second grade spent a day exploring and learning at The Tyler Arboretum. Third grade
went to The Franklin Institute. Fourth grade visited our state capital, Harrisburg, and fifth
grade journeyed to Mt. Vernon and Washington, D.C.
Recognition
Our fifth grade recognition program will be held on June 18 at The Media Theatre. We
thank them for their generosity in allowing us to use their beautiful facility.

Kindergarten
Kindergarten traveled to Milky Way Farms for their field trip. Milky Way Farms is a dairy
farm and the students were able to see a cow being milked and learn about how the
process works. The students learned about other animals and the importance of those
animals on the farm. For Kindergarten Field Day, students competed in several different
games, races, and events outside. The Kindergarten classes invited their families to an
“End of the Year Picnic.” During the picnic, students shared their writing pieces and read
to their parents. We had a great year! We piloted the Kindergarten Roundup. It was a
huge success! We met 90% of the incoming Kindergarten students and their families.
The parents met in the Library with Ms. Daugherty. Short presentations were given from
the principal, school nurse, transportation, Virtual K, and the PTG. The PTG also
arranged for several volunteers to assist with the day. The students were escorted to the
gym to complete four areas: pre-literacy skills, early math skills, fine motor, and social

play. Students completed basic assessments and were observed. The data collected
during the event gave the teachers and staff valuable information for class assignments
and planning for the 2010-2011 school year.
Second Grade
Second graders at RTES had several outstanding videoconference opportunities related
to their curriculum. Through Georgia's Center for Puppetry Arts, the children learned more
about the Butterfly Life Cycle while creating a butterfly marionette. In addition, also
through the Center for Puppetry Arts, the children learned about the Southwest Native
Americans by replicating a Hopi Kachina.
Fourth Grade
The fourth grade was very busy studying ecosystems in science. They learned about
several different types of ecosystems with a focus on both grasslands and ponds. The
students discovered that living and non-living things are dependent upon one another for
survival. The culmination this unit involved a field trip to the Wissahickon Environmental
Center in Fairmount Park. The fourth graders participated in a stream study in which they
studied the water and its inhabitants to check to see if it is a healthy ecosystem or not.
The students were permitted to enter the stream and collect samples of pond life to study
under the microscope. They looked for signs of pollution and the effects of pollution on
the water ecosystem. This was a valuable real-world learning activity for our students.
Music
The fifth grade handchime choir finished up the year by giving a great performance at the
Whitehorse Village Volunteer luncheon held in the Rose Tree School library. They also
played for their parents, friends and classmates at their Fifth Grade Recognition
Assembly. The fifth grade chorus was also recognized at the Recognition Assembly for
all of their performances in school and around the community for the 2009-2010 school
year. All of the general music classes ended the school year by showing their musical
talents in a talent show.
Rose Tree Points of Pride
The Rose Tree fifth grade students presented the school with a Legacy Gift. They
created a beautiful bulletin board for the main entrance foyer that is framed by hand made
ceramic roses that were created by each fifth grader. It is a wonderful gift that will be
enjoyed for many years to come. The Rose Tree PTG brought in artist Clair Brill to
oversee the project.
Rose Tree Student Council
Rose Tree Student Council members took turns reading the morning announcements with
much enthusiasm. Announcements included the cafeteria menu for the day, words of
wisdom, events of the day and the Huskies to Howl About nominations. All the students
did a wonderful job.

SPRINGTON LAKE MIDDLE SCHOOL
Tour de Lake was a great success again this year. All of the students involved worked
hard at completing the race and had great time. Here are the top 3 student team take took
home medals: In third place with a time of 1 hour, 48 minutes, and 12 seconds was
“Freshly Painted Stop Signs.” In second place with a time of 1 hour, 44 minutes, and 55
seconds was “NWA.” And in first place, taking home the yellow jerseys, with the time of 1
hour, 42 minutes, and 24 seconds was Ms. Stevens’ “O’Donnell’s Bombers.” The team
consisted of Liam O’Donnell, Rhami Halaby, Cassey Brown, & Thomas Tylek.
Congratulations to them and all of the teams that competed. $300 was raised for the MS
society as a result of team registration.
Art
There has been much positive feedback about the Springton Lake Middle School Art
Show that was held in May. Ms. Sycz’ grade six students complete glazing their clay
sculptures, students are being introduced to one point linear perspective. Grade seven
students have finished or are putting on the finishing touches to their clay sculptures.
Finally, as grade eight finishes painting their clay figures, students are reviewing their
knowledge of one point linear perspective before being introduced to two point linear
perspective.
Mrs. Going’s sixth grades are rapping up the study of the Aztecs with the completion of
their Aztec Sun relief sculpture and their ceramic sculptures relating to the Zuni Native
American Fetishes. This will complete the sixth grade's focus of the Element of Form.
Seventh grades will be completing their last assignment of a still life drawing and then
select one of three materials to add color. This is a problem solving assignment. They
must understand you draw what is there and not what you assume to be there. A huge
vase of silk flowers is the subject. Many stated by telling me there was no way they could
do this. The drawings are amazing they are very successful with their choice of color so
far! Students shock themselves with the tremendous results! Eighth grades are
completing a very difficult unit on sculpting a figure in three dimension. They have
problem solved individually and leaned on each other for expertise and ideas. They have
become independent of the instructor, a huge step forward!
Mrs. Prior’s students had art displayed in the annual Art Show. Student work is now
showcased in the halls, especially three-dimensional clay pagodas, clay food, and clay
figures. Students learned about various art forms and continued to learn the vocabulary
and skills needed to create art out of clay. Sixth graders are reinforcing their knowledge
of the terms and skills by making songs, poems, or comic strips that illustrate the steps of
creating clay sculptures.

Library
During May, SLMS Library sponsored its Spring Book Fair. Summer reading titles for all
rising grades – seventh, eighth and ninth were available for purchase. As usual, the fair
was open on two evenings to accommodate parents who wished to come with their
children. Mrs. Motley presented a lesson to Ms. Morris eighth grade social studies
classes suggesting resources – both print and online -- that would be especially helpful
with their assignments.
Students then researched Medieval and Renaissance
personalities, dressed in costume as their subject, and used props and informational
notations as they presented their subject and his accomplishments to their class. Mr.
Fisher’s sixth grade music students have been researching contemporary musicians –
pop, rap, country – for an end of the year project. Students in Mr. Homan’s sixth grade
social studies classes have been researching world heroes – those people across the
continents who have made significant contributions to the well being of the citizens in their
country or the countries of others. Science students from Mrs. Maguire’s sixth grade
classes have just completed their studies of endangered animals. All of the sixth grade
students participating in this project have benefited from $ 2500 worth of new books that
were purchased specifically for this project by an LSTA Grant.
The library has also been preparing for its move to modular housing. Inventory has been
completed. An extensive weeding project trimmed down the collection by eliminating
materials that were out-dated or in poor condition. Materials are currently being
evaluated so that some can be stored during the period of construction. The architect
worked with Mrs. Motley to design a user-friendly temporary “home” with space for books
and computers to accommodate the needs of our students during the period of
construction. The mover has also met with her to coordinate everything for a smooth
transition.
Music
Eighth grade general music students were involved in the study of jazz styles including
be-bop, cool jazz, and hard bop. They successfully played the famous “Blue Monk” on
the piano keyboard, and are now observing those elements in the Broadway musical
“West Side Story.” Seventh grade general music students continued to explore the
elements of jazz with the be-bop and big band sound. Notable musicians include the
works of Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington, Woody Herman, and Glen Miller. Parts of that
era were displayed in their study of the musical “Annie,” which also correlated with their
social studies curriculum. Students from Springton Lake Choruses joined with singers
from Indian Lane and Penncrest to perform at the evening ceremony during the Relay for
Life. The Music Department at SLMS was well-represented at the High Notes Music
Festival at Hershey, Pennsylvania. The Eighth Grade Chorus and Select Chorus were
each awarded a rating of excellent, the Eighth Grade Band and Jazz Band each received
a superior ranking, and the Orchestra and Honors Strings Ensemble finished the
adjudication with superior awards. The Honors String Ensemble of SLMS performed at
the Springton Lake Second Annual Art Exhibit to rave reviews. The Seventh Grade Band
and Seventh Grade Chorus combined to perform at the Eighth Grade Recognition
Ceremony.

Special Education
As the construction at Springton Lake progresses, 7 of our special education teachers are
packing up their rooms and getting ready to move to temporary locations next fall as the
front portion of the second floor of our building undergoes renovations. We are excited
and hopeful that a temporary inconvenience will yield positive results once the
construction is finished. Teachers of learning support math and language arts classes
are administering the GRADE and G-MADE tests to students this month. We are hopeful
that students will show progress as compared to the test results from the fall. Classroom
teachers feel that both of these assessments provide useful information for IEP teams as
they plan individualized instruction for each student. A number of recent activities have
aided in both fifth to six and eighth to ninth grade transition. All incoming sixth graders
have visited Springton Lake. Mr. Brown and Mrs. Snyder have also visited several
elementary buildings and attended IEP meetings for some incoming sixth graders. The
entire eighth grade has visited Penncrest for an orientation, and several eighth grade
special education teachers have taken their students to Penncrest for small-group tours
and orientations. Mr. Brown and Mrs. Groy have also had numerous communications
about programming needs for incoming ninth graders. Dr. Barta and Mr. Brown have
worked together to coordinate staffing and activities for this year’s ESY program.
Teachers, instructional assistants, and tutors are in place. Parents, students, and staff will
receive detailed information about the ESY program before the end of the school year.

Ken Phillips presented current and future bond information to the committee.
The district will need to borrow $14,850,000 for the second phase of the project
in the fall of 2010. The potential to use the Act 1 debt exception still exits. The
2007 DelVal variable rate bond is performing well. The District can easily convert
to a fix interest rate within a short period of time if the rate increases. Ken will
revisit the district in the fall of 2010.

As of 5/31/10, the District has expensed 88% of incurred expenditures and has
received 93% of revenue (See Attachment)
The district may not receive the budgeted revenue amount. Interest earnings are
lower than anticipated as well as local tax revenues due to the economy. The state
budget was not approved until October of 2009, which is four months after the
passage of the district’s budget. Revenue from the state is also anticipated to be
lower than budgeted. The district is still in the process of working with federal stimulus
funds. Although the district will not receive the full budgeted amount of stimulus funds,
expenditures were not incurred that would have offset the full budgeted amount.
The district will be using the balance of federal stimulus money in the 2010-2011 fiscal
year. Expenditures will be offset by federal revenue.

Update on RTM Psychology Department
Dr. Gilbert introduced our team of school psychologists - Ken Curran, Mara Dixon, Judy
Jalbert, and Josh Mattson. The group shared information about the roles and
responsibilities of the team and the specific work carried out in their respective buildings.
The school psychologists provide a broad range of services to address student needs in a
variety of areas. They work with students, parents and teachers to promote academic,
emotional and behavioral success. In addition to administering comprehensive
psychological evaluations, they consult with school personnel to determine interventions for
students as well as eligibility for special education services.
Update on Online Professional Development for 2010-2011
Dr. Taylor described plans for online professional development for 2010-2011. A goal of
the Office of Teaching & Learning is to individualize professional development to a greater
degree to meet the varying needs of RTM teachers. In 2009-2010, we piloted several
online courses for teachers to earn flex credits, and the feedback from the participants was
very positive. The offerings will be expanded in 2010-2011 to include over 15 available
online courses, each lasting 15 hours. In addition, the Office of Teaching & Learning will
continue to explore ways to personalize professional development, especially through the
use of technology.
Update on Special Education
Dr. Gilbert reported that the settlement agreement for GC, initiated more than nine years
ago, is about to come to an end at the close of the 2009-2010 school year. It is expected
that the parents will request an extension of this agreement. In order to determine the
current needs of the student, psychologist Ken Curran sent the family a Permission to
Evaluate form by certified mail but has not yet received a response. The Board will be
informed as updates become available.
At the May 4th Teaching and Learning Committee meeting, it was decided that Extended
School Year (ESY) contracts will be submitted for approval at Legislative meetings as they
are received. Dr. Gilbert reported that another ESY agreement has been received for three
(3) students, EL, GM, and SS. This service agreement from the Timothy School is for the
provision of ESY services from July 6th through August 13th. Students will receive
instruction based on goals and objectives from their IEPs. The tuition cost is $4350 per
student. The related service of speech and language will be provided for one student, GM,
at a cost of $195. The total amount of this agreement is $13,245.00
ACTION: A resolution for the approval of the contract from the Timothy School for
ESY educational services for three students (EL, GM, SS) will be on the June 24,
2010 Legislative Agenda.

Discussion and review of proposed new Board Policy 815.1 for approval:
The “Acceptable Use of District Information Technology Policy” was discussed and some
changes were recommended. Tom Kelly’s review of the policy produced minor changes, and Jeff
Pettit and John Hanna made a recommendation to add a statement under the “Prohibitions”
section of the policy. Linda Kinsler-Fox and John Hanna wanted an addition to wording under
“Use Guidelines and Requirements.” All changes will be reflected in the second draft of the new
policy and will be placed on the June legislative meeting for policy adoption.
Review of proposals and finance options for network upgrade
Ron Harris and Patti Linden reviewed the proposal for the Network Infrastructure Upgrade as a
Capital Improvement Project. After a consideration of three (3) proposals, it is the Technology
Department’s recommendation to accept a proposal from Juniper Networks for a total of
$734,188, financed over a period of five (5) years with a 0% finance option. In addition, with the
upgrade in the telephone system to a Voice Over IP solution, and factoring in the budgetary
resources built into the Springton Lake Middle School renovation project, there would be no
increase to the Technology Department budget. As presented to the Board of Directors, this plan
would necessitate a commitment of $200,000 from Fund 22 for the next five (5) years, which is
what the Department budget has had as a resource for the past several years. After a review of all
options, Board Directors who were in attendance agreed with the proposed funding. The finance
option agreement will be on the June legislative agenda for approval after a review by Tom
Kelly, Solicitor.
