Richard Stockton PTA Donates Chromebooks!

The Richard Stockton PTA has donated 25 Chromebooks and a cart to the school. The students and staff would like to thank the PTA for their generosity and awesome gift to the school. The cart enables us to bring a mini computer lab to any classroom any time of day. Staff can differentiate instruction while students work on multiple tasks. These computers will assist students in all areas of study and help them gain a greater command of technology. Again, thank you to all of the PTA members who made this happen

Richard Stockton Elementary School Raises 1600 Pounds of Canned Foods for the Cherry Hill Food Pantry!
Richard Stockton Elementary School Raises 1600 Pounds of Canned Foods for the Cherry Hill Food Pantry!

On Wednesday November 8, 2017, Ms. Carol Roskoph, Cherry Hill Township Councilwomen, presented Richard Stockton with a Proclamation from the Mayor and Town Council proclaiming November 8, 2017 Richard Stockton Food Drive Day.

As a National School of Character, the students and staff at Richard Stockton should be commended for their generosity and positive community spirit. There are hundreds of families in Cherry Hill who need assistance during the holiday season. As a result of this donation, the food pantry will able to pass out much needed food.

This was a community effort. We would like to thank all of the parents who sent food in with their children to make this happen. We would also like to congratulate Mrs. Pendleton's 3rd grade class for donating the highest total of food (117 Pounds) and the highest average per student (6.5 pounds per student). As a result of their hard work, the Stockton PTA has graciously agreed to donate a pizza party to the class. Thank you for your competitive spirit.

The culmination of our food drive was a school wide assembly. Mr. Riordan challenged Mrs. Mulligan to a foul shooting competition in front of the student body. The loser would get a pie in the face. Mrs. Mulligan beat Mr. Riordan, and was such a good sport, decided to take a pie to the face as well. Thank you Mrs. Mulligan.

As a National School of Character, Richard Stockton will begin a school wide canned food drive on November 1, 2017. All grades will participate. The food drive will run through November 7, 2017. We ask that each student bring 2 canned foods into school. We will weigh the total amount of canned foods per class then divide by the number of students who participated. The class with the highest average (weight) per student will receive a pizza party courtesy of the PTA. To make this a little fun, Mr. Riordan and Mrs. Mulligan will compete in a foul shooting competition. The loser will get a whipped cream pie to their face in front of the student body. Students from the winning class will receive the honor of pushing the pie into the losers face. Our food collection will be donated to the Cherry Hill Food Pantry. Thank you for your anticipated participation!

CHFD/CHPS Fire Safety Survey for Grades 1, 3, 5, and 6
CHFD/CHPS Fire Safety Survey for Grades 1, 3, 5, and 6

The Cherry Hill Fire Department has been a partner with the Cherry Hill School District providing fire safety education for many years. In 2014 we presented a new program entitled "Safety Smart". Safety Smart is a school-based curriculum that links teachers with community safety experts and parents. Safety Smart is being taught in grades 1, 3, 5 and 6 as part of the Physical/Health Education Program.

The goal of the Safety Smart Program is not only to teach students valuable safety skills, but also to have the students put these skills to use outside of the school environment. A valuable tool to help us evaluate the effectiveness of the program is the parent survey. We ask parents/guardians to please take a few minutes to complete an online Parent Survey so we can determine how, if at all, the instruction is being put to use.
