Woodbine – 6-28-2006

By Rick Racela

The individual teachers at WES have kindly and through the auspices of Regina Kaufmann (we’re gonna miss you, especially at press release time!) listed year-end honors for their students.
We’ll be listing these throughout the next several columns, in lieu of a fourth marking period honor roll/student of the month listing.
From Mrs. Popper:
Donna Foster received fourth marking period Honors, with both fourth marking period and final Honors going to Matthew Cerracchio, Katelyn Gold, Mariah Rodriguez, and T’yonna Edmonds.
Mariah was also Mrs. Popper’s student with highest overall average in Language Arts.
From Ms. DuBose:
Student with highest overall average: Michael Wing
Michael Wing (eighth): most improved overall, Math, Spelling, Honor Roll.
Donta Holt (eighth): Reading, Math, Language Arts-highest average, 90 percent. (Sorry we misspelled your name last column, Donta.)
Ronald Barrington (seventh): Handwriting Award.
Juan Perez (seventh) Physical Education,”Most Cooperative,” Math High.
Justin Davis (seventh) Reading Participation.
James Johnson (seventh) Most Improved Reader.
Kabryni Kunkle (fifth): Math Award – 90 average!
With summer vacation well underway, don’t forget the Bookmobile comes to Woodbine every Wednesday from 2 to 3:15 p.m.
Michael parks it in back of Borough Hall, in front of the Ambulance Corps, a.k.a. Emergency Management Building.
Speaking of libraries: Watch this column for groundbreaking news about the Community/School construction project.
St. Casimir’s Vacation Bible School will be Aug. 14-18, from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
Call Melissa at 476-3214 or email at for details and to register.
(We also hear there’s talk of an early morning Mass on Saturdays. Let Father Pavel know if you’reinterested.)
Any other VBS or other summer programs scheduled?
Please let us know.
Watch this column for more news about the results of the Borough’s “Cool Cities” application to NJDEP’s Division of Parks and Forestry, Community Forestry Division.
Expect a really big “Arbor Day” this upcoming arboreal year.
The Woodbine Board of Education meeting originally scheduled for June 27 is now a “Special Meeting,” with the regular monthly meeting rescheduled for June 29.
(Could word be forthcoming about the “Superintendent Search” selection?)
A quiet week municipally, with no meetings scheduled as we move deeper into summer.
Municipal offices will all be closed July 4 for our National Holiday.
Alas, with Governor Corzine so cost-conscious, we see no acquiescing to our argument that it’s a waste of energy to cool the buildings Monday after a weekend just to close them up again Tuesday, thus logically leading to a four-day weekend.
Maybe hubby can make a big pot of chili for Borough Hall staff for a Third of July non-extended weekend indoor picnic.
