As the district continues to support sustainability initiatives and foster positive school to home communication, we are expanding usage of the Genesis Parent Access. Currently, district wide, parents complete five (5) “opening of school” forms through the Genesis Parent Access. For the 2018-19 school year, there will be six (6) “opening of school” forms as well as other new features. 'Click' for important information!
Mrs. Kawalek’s selection marks the conclusion of a process that began in January. The principal position opening was advertised widely and 87 applications were received. A principal search committee consisting of community stakeholders with expertise and relevance interviewed the top 10 candidates, with two finalists being recommended for final interviews with the superintendent’s district administrative team. Join us on Tuesday, August 21st, for a “Welcome Reception/Open House” for new Principal Kawalek in the Lore Media Center from 5:30 - 7:30 PM.
Samantha Noble a fifth grader at Lore, at the 9th annual Lore Laps for Life event ran over 6 miles (25 fitness trail laps) during our event on May 11th. Over 60 students and parents attended the event and together we raised $500.00 for Mrs. Romanchuk's, Team Virginia. These donations will be added to all others at the Mercer County Park Relay for Life event on June 2nd to help the American Cancer Society.
Lore students in Mrs. Thompson and Mrs. Lombardi’s 5th grade English classes researched Holocaust rescuers and heroes and created a Holocaust Museum, where they shared their research with teachers, students and parents. As part of an informational reading and expository writing unit of study, students researched heroes and rescuers of the Holocaust, published essays highlighting each hero’s challenges and accomplishments, and created a presentation to be displayed in the Museum.
Lore School fourth and fifth grade musicians performed for third grade students during Music in Our Schools month. Students chosen to perform have been doing an excellent job this year in instrumental music. It was the perfect time for Mr. Price to showcase and promote the instrumental program and pique the interest of future Lore musicians.
Mrs. Thompson is a graduate of the Ewing Schools, and attended the Lore School as a child. After graduating from Ewing High School, she attended Trenton State College, earning her Bachelor's degree and teaching credentials. 'Click' to read more about this fantastic teacher!
Each year, the Lore Parents’ Association holds a ‘Spaghetting’ to Know You event in October for Lore School families, teachers and friends. Mrs. Doreen Romanchuk (P.E. teacher) organizes a teacher time auction where teachers offer their time to do special activities with students to help raise money for the school. Families bid on the many fun and unique activities offered and the teachers hold their events during various times throughout the school year.
