Hello Bellmawr Learning Community Member!
Our students and staff have been busy this spring engaging activities that surround our newest initiative, Sustainable Jersey for Schools. SSNJ is a certification program for New Jersey public schools that want to go green, conserve resources and take steps to create a brighter future, one school at a time.
Every school in the district is involved in one way or another in making our environment safer, healthier and cleaner! We are involved in many of the action steps and activities eligible for certification points within this program, like Breakfast after the Bell, Walk to school efforts, wellness activities, green cleaning. Joining this statewide effort will help position ourselves for be eligible for grants that will further our efforts in leadership, healthy school environments, food and nutrition and student learning. We just began a fitness challenge encouraging everyone to get up and move and to eat fruits and vegetables.
I hope that as you learn more about Sustainable Jersey for Schools Bellmawr, you will find an area of interest and go green with us. Please mark your calendars for June 6th the date of our first Green Fair. Hope to see you there.
Superintendent of Schools
