From our Supervisors
South’s educators continue to work hard to motivate and inspire all students with a plethora of resources and activities. We are putting forth our best efforts to achieve this and bring joy to learning.
Our Art teachers, Mr. Greg Johnson, Ms. Lauren Ruhlin and Ms. Rebekkah Hunkele, have begun the process of the 70 year old tradition of painting downtown business windows that our community looks forward to and enjoys. Our art students are researching and sketching their ideas. They have the opportunity to provide feedback to each other about their designs. Although all students are expected to create a painting that shows subject, foreground, background, texture, and compositional elements, the subject of their painting, the composition and the color scheme is entirely up to the students. We can’t wait to see their creations!
We are so grateful to be a part of each students’ journey and to continue to share our amazing experiences at South!
Work Based Learning - September News
Students have started their internships at the Ocean County Courthouse, Cattus Island, and the Toms River Police Department. They are also interning at S.A.V.E. Rescue Shelter and all of our elementary schools as well as Sportscare Physical Therapy, and Atlantic Physical Therapy. They will also begin their internships at Community Medical Center and Ocean University Medical Center. We are currently accepting applications from seniors until 10/15 for the CE program during period 5. The CE program benefits seniors by:
- Providing an opportunity for a paid work based learning experience
- Offering a flexible schedule
- Students can earn 15 credits
- Demonstrates responsibility on college applications by working while attending school
