School Days

Bishop McHugh
Kaitlyn Fox, an eighth grader at Bishop McHugh Regional Catholic School, recently competed at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pa., at the Delaware Valley Science Fair. She was the recipient of the Naval Science Award which is the highest award granted by the Office of Naval Engineering and Sciences.
The event was held April 6-8. Fox went up against 135 first, second and third-place winners in the sixth, and seventh and eighth grades from New Jersey, Delaware and Philadelphia at the April competition.
This prestigious award was followed by her first place win in the Physics Category of the Junior Division at the 35th Jersey Shore Science Fair held at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey on March 20.
Fox, who has an interest in Physics, submitted her science fair project at Bishop McHugh Regional Catholic School in early February to compete at the grade school level.
Her project, “How Does the Changing of the Launch Angle Effect the Projectiles’ Travel Distance,” won her first place in the physics division at the grade school’s fair.
In other Bishop news, fourth grade Social Studies teacher, Margie Cullen, recently introduced her students to Flat Stanley. This fun-filled project is an outcome of the Flat Stanley adventure books. Students created their own “Flat Stanley” and mailed him out to family and friends all across the United States.
The students then coordinated pictures, postcards, letters and other memorabilia into their finished projects. Some places Flat Stanley visited include California, Florida, Maine and Michigan.
Cape May Technical
Students from the Travel and Tourism program at the Cape May County Technical High School recently attended the Governor’s Tourism Conference in Atlantic City.
Chris Gonzalez, an Automotive Technology student at Cape May County Technical High School, recently participated in the New Jersey SkillsUSA state competition in the Mobile Electronics category.
The school hosted the competition that included students from Sussex Tech and Passaic Tech who were judged on customer service, job interview and technical ability. Tom Holland of Holland Automotive was one of the technical judges, evaluating Gonzalez’s ability as he performs an electric circuit test from a wiring schematic to operate electrical components.
Dennis Township
This past week was one of incredible support, brilliant ideas and fantastic food in Dennis Township. The faculty and staff would like to thank everyone who voted in support of the education budget, which ensures that our schools will continue to provide a quality education to our children.
This quality education was made obvious Tuesday when the 6th-8th graders displayed their Science Fair projects in the cafeteria of the Academy Road school.
There were suspension bridges, vision experiments and hovercrafts. An 8th grader, Zach Peterson, who taught other students about chaos theory using a Rube Goldberg machine, manned the largest and most interactive project.
If anyone attending the Science Fair was hungry, steaming pots of chili were only steps away. Over twenty contestants entered the Chili Cook Off and everyone nibbled their way through the evening, casting votes and building a sense of community.
In the end, there were three teachers as chili winners: Jeanette Riggitano for the Primary School, Kim Holman for the Elementary School and Elise Jones for the Middle School
