Hoops for Soup

Hoops for Soup was a Hoop-tacular success. We collected a huge amount of donations and had a smashing good time watching staff and students compete in basketball. Thank you to those who brought back this fun-filled event as well as everyone who participated in or attended.

Multicultural Night at the Samuel Mickle School on March 30th from 5:30-7:30pm!

Did you know that Flamenco is a dance from Spain? It originated in the southern region of Andalucía and it was influenced by different cultures in the region. Today flamenco is an art form that is preserved and performed throughout the world...and it will be featured at Multicultural Night on March 30th! Come join our students and volunteers, from 5:30-7:30 pm on Thursday, for dance, martial arts, poetry, and presentations from many cultures! This is a celebration of cultures that make up our community. While some hosts will have limited samples, we recommend you come to nourish your soul and mind rather than your stomach :) There will be some seating to the side of the cafeteria if you want to bring your own cultural canapes!


If your child is absent or going to be late, please remember to notify the school by calling the attendance line. The school number is 856-423-0412. Press 2 for the Samuel Mickle School. Then, press 1 for the Attendance Line.

Character Dares

The purpose of the Character Dare process is to build habits of character by offering consistent, practical ways to engage in the practice of these sometimes-abstract traits. A weekly (and sometimes daily) exercise and check-in around something like kindness helps bring the character trait to life in our real relationships and provides a system for regular conversation and action.

"Responsibility" character dare choice boards will be due on April 5th.
