Lakeside Lightning,

Turning Dreams into Reality

Millville Administrators at NJPSA
Last week we were busy learning and planning for the upcoming year. The administrators participated in 3 days of professional development focused on improving the Millville Public Schools. We had great discussions and spent a lot of time collaborating between the schools. Throughout the 3 days we focused on providing effective feedback for teachers, identifying specific areas for improvement, learning how to coach staff, and how to build a culture focused on learning.

In addition, we had a group of teachers who attended the RAC Summer Institute at Stockton University. The staff learned about establishing effective Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) as well as how the whole school literacy initiative will improve our students' reading comprehension.

This week we will be hosting our first annual Boot Camp for incoming 6th graders on Monday and Tuesday morning.  We have over 120 students registered for this exciting opportunity. Parents can drop their children off on the parking lot side (6th grade entrance). During the Boot Camp, students will learn about the school through activities such as binder building, scavenger hunt, and other team-building games. We look forward to seeing everyone this week!
