Please click HERE to complete a brief survey. This survey will close at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, July 10, 2020.

Thank you.

LTSD Summer Learning Portal

Good afternoon Parents & Guardians,

To help promote and support learning over the Summer months, the district has created a Summer Learning Portal for your family to access. The idea is to help slow the “summer slide” by providing a variety of optional grade appropriate programs and activities for your child to practice and learn from. The portal is brimming with free learning resources that are broken down by grade level and focus area. The goal is to make the Summer Learning Portal a one stop for your summer learning needs. In consideration of the many needs of our district’s families, there is also practical information from our various support programs and services. The link to the Summer Learning Portal can be found on the district website and below.

https://sites.google.com/lumberton.k12.nj.us/ltsdsummerlearningportal/home

With or without the Summer Learning Portal, below are just a few ways to keep learning alive in the summer.

  • Make learning a part of everyday life. Use trips in the car to review math facts, listen to audio books, or discuss geography!
  • Keep a summer journal. Using your smartphone or tablet, work with your child to take pictures throughout the week and then write a short paragraph about what happened.
  • Make reading a family affair. Grab a book and head to a park for a reading picnic. Read books aloud taking turns being the reader. Together, read a book that has been turned into a movie, watch the film adaptation of the book, and talk about the similarities and differences.
  • Have your child work on activities before meals and discuss what they learned at the table.
  • Soak in the science around you. Make observations about summer weather patterns, lightning bugs, and summer sounds.
  • Cloud watch and make up stories. Better yet, take pictures of the clouds and illustrate them!
  • Keep a fitness log. Challenge each other to beat goals related to blocks walked, streets biked, or laps swum.
  • Keep learning fun by encouraging and rewarding your child for their efforts in completing goals or activities.

We hope that you find the Summer Learning Portal as an invaluable resource in supporting your child’s learning throughout the summer months. Thank you for your continued support and partnership. Be safe and enjoy the summer!

Respectfully,

LMS Yearbook Info

Hello,I hope that this email finds all of our families healthy and safe.  Clearly, this year has been like no other. Despite its many challenges, there is still so much to celebrate. The memories that our students have made with their friends and their teachers are some that they will cherish forever. That is why we have yearbooks… they let you look back, and smile. I am happy to say that it is not too late to place an order – our new deadline to order is June 15th. Books cannot be personalized at this time. Please use this link https://www.yearbookordercenter.com/index.cfm/job/4725  to reserve a copy for your child. The cost is $35.00.  

Pictures – We are still looking for some pictures to fill the pages of events we missed while being quarantined.  If you have pictures from the year and from remote learning time, please download them by May 1st. Please use the HJeshare app or visit www.hjeshare.com Passwords for both are: lmswildcats. Important info to include is the grade. The name and description can be vague. I will be in touch with some of our 8th graders about the Who’s Who pics. It is imperative that students check their grade Google Classroom every day – important information is constantly being posted and a lot of students are not in the know because they do not make it a habit to check. Your help with this and the yearbook is much appreciated. 

The yearbook distribution date is not known at this time, but the books are definitely going to be processed! If you have any questions, please send me an email ( [email protected]) and I will get back to you in a timely manner. Thank you for your help. I wish every family continued good health and safety.

A poem and video by Autumn Mascali LMS Grade 8

Though the change from day-to-day seems like nothing but play.
Our days are not done.
Our battle is yet to be won.
Boredom will cast and reign with terror.
The fun stopping will not be in error.
Yet, it gives us time to sit in peace.
The stress we hold will not just freeze.
And I might have fun running in the breeze.
I stop and remember I must stay six feet away at least.
But, gloom not all.
Oh no the sun will not dull.
We must remember as we go along.
That life is like the sweetest song.
And even when everything seems like it’s going wrong.
We must hold our ground and stay strong.
The fun might stop, but not for long.
So why don’t we go outside and play some ping-pong.
or painting the Day as the sun moves along.
Because though this might seem to last forever.
It is not life-long, So we must never lose our pleasure.

Lumberton Schools Receive Major US DOE Grant

School Districts in Gloucester and Burlington County partner with Rowan University’s Center for Access Success, and Equity to receive a U.S. Department of Education grant for up to $2.4 million over the course of four years.

Burlington County Times 10-9-19

The Delsea Regional, Elk Township, Logan Township, and the Lumberton School Districts have been awarded “The School Climate Transformation Grant” by the U.S. Department of Education. The districts will receive up to $2.4 million over the course of four years from the U.S. Department of Education to support training for teachers, staff, and students to implement evidence-based strategies to improve school climate for elementary and middle school students attending the four school districts cited above, through a partnership with Dr. Shelley Zion from Rowan University’s C.A.S.E (Center for Access, Success and Equity). A total of $429,793 will be administered during the first year to plan and implement the initial goals of the project. The project builds on the work that Dr. Zion and the C.A.S.E. team has been leading over the past three years.

The grant was awarded to the four rural school districts partnering with C.A.S.E. to improve equity, culture, and climate in their schools. The grant will support current work as well as expand upon programs to include Positive Behavioral Intervention Support (PBIS), implementing Restorative Justice practices, increasing trauma-informed supports, student lead action research projects, mentoring (both teacher to student and student to student), and developing district climate teams. Using these best practices to enhance the work already occurring in the districts will provide these districts with the ability to engage faculty, staff, students, and families/community with a focus on improving student learning while also focusing on the overall social and emotional development of their students to ensure future student success.

“The commitment by the U.S. Department of Education to further the work our school districts are engaging in with middle and elementary school students and staff around climate and culture is an amazing validation of our work thus far,” Delsea Assistant Superintendent Dr. Melissa Williams explained. “This funding will allow all four districts an opportunity to fund innovative projects and programs while partnering with community partners in the name of our students.”

Mrs. Patricia L. Haney, Superintendent of Logan Township School District, further elaborated on the benefit of this grant by stating, “As a school district which is slated for reduced state funding over the next few years, Logan Township is thrilled that we will be able to continue our work to build the capacity of our staff and students in the area of Equitable Culture and Climate as a result of being one of four districts which will receive this grant from the U.S. Department of Education. This grant will help all four districts to continue to grow in our understanding of the influence of culture on human behavior while continuing to build an equitable climate and culture in each of our schools, which meets the needs of marginalized populations of students.”

Mr. Joseph Langowski, Superintendent of the Lumberton Township School District, highlighted the work of C.A.S.E. Executive Director Dr. Shelley Zion. “Dr. Zion’s work is transformative. The grant title, “The Case for Student Voice as a Change Agent in Schools,’ describes our collective commitment to improve social emotional opportunities for our students by providing them with greater voice in their schools. This grant will give us unprecedented opportunities to better serve our students.”

Zion stated, “Each of these leaders has demonstrated a persistent commitment to addressing issues of equity, including the voices of students, and improving schools for all students. These funds allow us to deepen our work, and to serve as a model for schools in South Jersey and nationwide.”

Online Meal Application Instructions

Online Meal Applications – New This Year!
The Lumberton School District has moved to online free/reduced meal applications for the 2019/20 school year. Please click on the SchoolCafé LINK. If your family does not already have a SchoolCafé account, create an account, and apply online starting on 9/5/19. This will streamline the application process immensely and prevent lost or misplaced applications from the student to the school. Applications received online can be verified and approved (or denied) the same day if all information is complete. If you do not have internet access, paper applications are available in your child’s school main office.

For returning students with eligible meal benefits, your current meal status (18/19 determination) will be carried over until mid-October.  If you wish to continue meal benefits for this school year, a new application must be submitted!  If you received a letter stating that your family is Directly Certified, you do not need to fill out a meal application.

If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Jennifer Grimm, District Determining Official,  at (609) 261-2974 or by email at:  [email protected]


SchoolCafe Information & SoHappy App

Dear Lumberton Parents and Guaridans:

Last year, the Lumberton Township School District switched our credit card processing company used for the School Lunch Program from “Myschoolbucks” to “SchoolCafe.”

If don’t have an account, please create one. SchoolCafe can be accessed through any computer at https://www.schoolcafe.com or you can download the SchoolCafe app on your mobile device simply by searching for SchoolCafe in the Apple Store or Google Play. The Lumberton Township School District website has the link to SchoolCafe. It can be found under the Food Service Information section of our homepage. Once your account is established, you will be able to view your child’s current account balance and make payments.

Lunch PINS are the last 5 digits of student/staff school ID (found in Genesis).

For households with students in more than one district:  At this time, you will not be able to add students in different DISTRICTS to the same account.  If you already have a SchoolCafe account with a student in another district (such as RV) you will have to set up a second SchoolCafe account using a different email address. We are very sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.  You CAN use the same account for siblings in different schools within Lumberton Township School District (Walther, Ashbrook, Bobby’s Run, Middle).

Payment Maximum Limit:  There is a maximum limit of $100 per transaction.  If you have multiple students within the district, you must stay below the $100 when totaling up each child’s payment OR make separate transactions.

Finally … Sodexo has some exciting news….it’s their new app, “So Happy”. So Happy is linked to each school’s breakfast and lunch menus. It contains nutritional information and indicates allergens associated with every item found on each menu.

To download the free app, visit the App Store or Google Play Store and search “So Happy.” Then choose a school or multiple schools to gain access to the specific menu planned for that school. You will have the option of selecting your allergies, and if you do so, that allergen will be highlighted in red next to the menu item it is found in, warning you not to choose this item.

Please click HERE for additional info.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact me directly.

Please check our website for further information regarding the School Lunch Program (https://www.lumberton.k12.nj.us).

INCLEMENT WEATHER / EMERGENCY CLOSINGS

INCLEMENT WEATHER/EMERGENCY CLOSINGS: We are now into the winter season, and it is important for everyone to be prepared for emergency closings. These are most often caused by weather, but can also occur when a boiler breaks or similar mechanical failure happens. Please have a plan in place for your children should the need for an emergency/early closing occur.

In the event of the need for an emergency closing, the district utilizes an automated phone calling system, Blackboard Connect. For delayed openings and before-school closings, Blackboard Connect will call ONLY the HOME NUMBER listed in our database to confirm that school is closed or delayed.

Always verify closings through the Lumberton School District Website: www.lumberton.k12.nj.us or RVTV Comcast Channel 19/FiOS Channel 40. Emergency closings are also broadcast on standard news outlets between 6:30 and 8:30 a.m. Lumberton’s Emergency Closing Number is 702. In the event of an emergency early closure, Blackboard Connect will dial THREE numbers in the following order as applicable: home, mom’s cell, dad’s cell.


No Place for Hate

Lumberton Schools have applied to become a No Place for Hate District for the 2017-2018 school year.  This includes: FLW, AES, BRS and LMS.  We are thrilled to have this opportunity to become a part of this organization.  These activities will promote respect through active learning projects that address bullying and hatred that will lead to a more positive school climate.

During the year, each school will have a minimum of 3 activities that celebrate diversity and respect as well as address bias and bullying.  Each school will have a kick-off for the year to discuss the program goals.  Students will sign and become familiar with the No Place for Hate Promise.  More information will be distributed to parents, students and staff throughout the year.  Please contact Kim Pease at [email protected] with any questions regarding the program.
