BONNIE J. EDWARDS
SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS

SUPERINTENDENT'S MESSAGE

BuckminsteráFuller, creator of the "Knowledge Doubling Curve," noted that, until the year 1900, human knowledge doubled approximately every century. By the end of World War II, human knowledge was doubling about every 25 years. Today, on average, human knowledge doubles every 13 months. What does this mean for our students? Simply this: many of the jobs and activities they will participate in as adults have not yet been invented or even dreamed of as they approach their high school graduation. To ensure that our students are well prepared for this rapidly changing environment, twenty-first century learning focuses on key skill areas such as critical thinking and problem-solving, communication, collaboration, creativity and innovation, as well as perseverance.

While embracing twenty-first century standards and expectations for college and career readiness, we remain focused on ensuring that we support the growth and success of each individual learner. One of our greatest strengths as a district is our passion for helping students grow intellectually, emotionally, and socially to become well rounded and engaged citizens. I am proud to lead such a dedicated and professional group of educators who work tirelessly on behalf of our students and families.áIt is both an honor and a privilege to serveáHaddon
áTownship in the role of Superintendent of Schools.á

- Bonnie J. Edwards
á Superintendent of Schools



READY TO START THE 2017-18 SCHOOL YEAR!

Haddon Township staff members completed two days of professional development on September 5th and 6th to prepare for the first day of school on September 7th. These two days included faculty and departmental meetings, workshop presentations, and mini courses. Teachers also participated in a "Welcome Back Challenge" that encouraged branching out to work with our newer staff members. The competition was spirited and prizes were awarded to our top teams. Our staff is ready and excited to welcome our students back to school on September 7th!




Completion of Referendum Projects and Community Day Celebration

After two years of construction, our referendum projects to improve district buildings are largely completed! Our community has always been proud of its true neighborhood schools and these projects have enhanced existing spaces, as well as added some much needed new spaces. On-going construction in our neighborhoods, however, has caused some challenges for our friends and neighbors so we wanted to celebrate this milestone with our entireáHaddon Township community.á


To achieve this goal, we held aá"Community Day Open House" on Saturday, June 3, 2017.áAll district school buildings were open to visitors for guided and self-guided tours. Some of our students created videos of the new spaces in use by students and staff that we posted throughout the buildings. At each school, we were on hand to speak with community members, answer questions, and guide visitors.

We thank everyone who gave so much time on a Saturday to staff this event: our board members, district administrators, PTA members, custodial staff, and students. Feedback has been quite positive and we hope that our friends, neighbors, new parents, and alumni who stopped by the Open House enjoyed seeing their new and improved community schools!
