Woodbine 5.3.2006

By Rick Racela

It’s May, but Cape Human Resources’ Home Energy Assistance Program is still going on.
The H.E.A.P. program provides financial assistance to help low-income families pay for their heating bills.
Call CHR’s Woodbine Division at 861-2816.
Bring a copy of your most recent heating bill, social security cards for everyone in the household, proof of housing (deed, tax bill, lease, rent receipt, or mortgage statement) and proof of income for the previous four weeks for everyone in the household over the age of 18.
CHR Woodbine is located at the intersection of Longfellow and Monroe Avenues.
Contact person is Trina Gibbs.
Other services provided by Cape Human Resources, among their four locations in the county, include:
New Jersey Shares (which can help clients over the H.E.A.P. income guidelines),
Salvation Army services and programs,
Tri-County WIC (Women/Infants/Children) public health nutrition program, USF, an emergency food program with advocacy and referral services.
Call Trina for information and availability of these services and programs.
AARP meets tomorrow at 11:30 a.m.
  Borough Council meets tomorrow at 7:30 p.m.
Tomorrow is Student Government Day. Don’t forget:
Eighth graders from Woodbine who attend private school or are being home schooled can arrange personalized “Student Government Days” by calling the Mayor’s Office at 861-5301.
This year’s Student Government Day will again include our Arbor Day celebration.
Tubeling trees will be distributed.
We have some other tree-related activities in the works, and promise Community Forestry that we will be reporting such, among our other borough publicity initiatives, in upcoming columns.
   We’re kinda’ rolling Earth Day, Arbor Day, and May Day into our environmental celebration, while we contemplate the parameters of our next “tree grant” application.
The Woodbine School District is holding a second registration day for full-day pre-school and full-day kindergarten for the 2006/2007 school year.
  Registration, which is by appointment only, will be May 16 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
To make an appointment, call Mrs. Schalek at 861-5174 ext. 121.
Any child registering for pre-school must be four years old by this Oct. 1.
Any child registering for kindergarten must be five years old by that same date.
All current pre-school children must register for kindergarten.
All children registering for pre-school should accompany parents for registration.
Please bring the following records:
Immunization records, birth certificate, social security card, proof of residency, custody papers if applicable.
Mrs. Schalek has also given us the good news that Red, White, and Blue Day has returned to Woodbine Elementary.
Students and staff will host “R, W, and B” Day May 24, at 1:15 p.m., in the school’s All-Purpose Room.
The Cape May Coast Guard Drill Team and Honor Guard will give their traditional performance.
Students will present a celebration of patriotic music.
Among the guest speakers will be Lower Township Police Chief Edward Donahue.
This program is a long-standing, yearly event to honor the men and women who serve and have served our county in the Armed Forces.
Since a number of our local “boys” are now veterans of the most recent conflict, we find it especially fitting that this worthy commemoration has returned to WES’s May calendar.
