Earth Day Celebration!

On April 22, Miss O'Brien's Business Office Practices class combined Ms. Warren and Mr. Cottrell's Junior High classes and celebrated Earth Day by planting flowers and a dogwood tree. Horticulture Teacher Mr. Osborne did a beautiful job (A HUGE THANK YOU TO OZ!!!) of instructing and assisting students in planting, explaining how to correctly create a garden with style. The ceremony concluded with students promising to help protect the environment, hanging their handwritten "Pledges" on our newly planted tree. Happy Earth Day Everyone!

Graphic Arts News!

Lumberton Graphic Design Class has some exciting news! Last month, three of our students earned an award for their projects that were submitted to the Teen Arts Festival that were held at Burlington County College. They were Tatiana Colon, Allyson Kiel, and James Rizzo. In addition, senior Allyson Kiel’s project advanced for the possibility of winning the final grand prize. This decision will be made at the end of April.

I am extremely proud and excited about the students and their recognition.

Around Campus this Week...

LUMBERTON CAMPUS WELCOMES HELEN DEMEO, SUBSTANCE ABUSE COORDINATOR

I would like to introduce myself as the new Substance Awareness Coordinator. Many of the staff have been very nice allowing me to observe the students in their classrooms. My job entails counseling the students regarding drugs and alcohol, mental health issues, court charges, family issues, self mutilation, gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues and any thing else you feel maybe affecting the student negatively. I'm hoping to start a smoking cessation group and an anger management group. I'm available in the Child Study Team Office at ext. 4436 from 8:30 to 2:00 daily. If you have any referrals or questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Whatever referrals I receive are confidential and I explain to the students I only break confidentiality if they are going to hurt themselves or threaten to hurt someone else. So far Lumberton Staff have been very friendly and I hope to hear from you.

Mr. Morris' History Haven

HISTORY OF MAY

May was named for the Greek goddess Maia, who was identified with the Roman era goddess of fertility, Bona Dea, whose festival was held in May. Conversely, the Roman poet Ovid provides a second etymology, in which he says that the month of May is named for the maiores, Latin for "elders," and that the following month (June) is named for the iuniores, or "young people".

Big Days in MAY.

May 1st Beltane

May 5th is when Cinco de Mayo or the Batalla de Puebla is celebrated in Mexico. It is also celebrated widely in the United States.

May 10th is Golden Spike Day (1869 – Completion of the First Transcontinental Railroad – Promontory Summit, Utah)[1]

May 10th DON’T FORGET MOTHERS DAY!!

Spanish Factoid of the Week!
