EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP SCHOOL DISTRICT
Central Office Communication: Week of May 8, 2022
I hope that all of our EHT Moms had a wonderful Mother’s Day! Your love, dedication , and commitment to your children is what makes a difference!
Our schools spent time this week recognizing our teachers for their passion and expertise in the field of education. Here at the Egg Harbor Township School District we appreciate the efforts of our teachers as they embrace, engage, and educate our students. Thank you to all of the Parents’ Clubs who helped celebrate our teachers with treats, signage, and luncheons.
Strategic planning meeting will take place on May 17th at 7pm at the high school. All parents, staff, and students are invited to take part in a collaborative process that will create a goal setting framework that will lead our school district into the future. I have sent a survey home to parents and have met with students for feedback.
We are in need of bus drivers and food service workers. If you know anyone who would be interested in driving a school bus, please have them contact our Transportation Department at 609-927-2443.If you know someone who would like to work in our cafeterias, please see our website to apply.
We are committed to improving student achievement when we EMBRACE, ENGAGE, and EDUCATE the students of the Egg Harbor Township School District. #EHTPride

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

CLIMATE, CULTURE and #EHTPride
CLIMATE, CULTURE & #EHTPride
We are dedicated to learning together, growing together, and healing together within a positive school climate. Celebrations of recognition and reward for achievement, even the littlest steps, will occur in all of our schools as we value the importance of appreciation and respect. We have a lot of #EHTPride in taking care of our students and showcasing their achievements.
We are committed to setting a foundation of culture in our school that includes respect for diversity, inclusion and equity for ALL students and staff. To empower our school community to be positive, supportive, patient, and understanding.To unify all members around one central goal that includes nurturing a strong culture that allows students, teachers, staff, and community members to flourish as individuals and as a community.
With Every Hand Together, Every child, Everyday is provided a relevant learning experience. Our teachers collaborate in professional learning communities to review student progress in order to provide ALL students with the opportunity to learn at high levels. We know that in order to successfully educate each student, we must be cognizant of each student’s individual learning needs. This can only be accomplished if we work together to eliminate any predictability of achievement disparities by race, ethnicity, gender, language, disability, and/or economics. All faculty and staff participated in equity training during our professional learning days. Together, we can achieve more!
