Welcome to White Rock School’s Home Page!

April was a busy month, but May will be even busier! This time of year is when all the activities start, and from now until the end of June just seems like a blur! The end of the year brings so many fun things! PARCC will finish up the first week of May, and then it begins…field trips, concerts, assemblies, fairs, projects, and more!

The results are in and congratulations go out to the winners of the Poetry and Pancakes program! Thank you to Mrs. Ortense and Mrs. Doyle for working so hard to run such a fun and educational program for students!

HUGE thanks goes to Ms. Bednarz for organizing (and counting!) the Autism Awareness Penny Battle and to all the students for their donations – White Rock students and faculty raised over $3000 to be donated to Autism New Jersey! It is amazing that all of that came from “spare change!” It was such a fun way to have a friendly competition and raise money for a good cause all at the same time. The 5th grade was the winner & received a special lunch and recess at White Rock Lake. The 3rd and 4th grades also received extra recess for their efforts.

Please continue to be on the lookout for Dr. Valenti’s challenge: The Problem of the Week! Students can view a specific grade-level math PARCC type problem each week (posted Wednesday afternoons). If they choose to solve the problem and bring their work and solution to the office by the end of the day the following Monday, students will get a point. Students with the most points at the end of the marking period will get a really great prize! For the second marking period, the top winner from each grade level was rewarded, along with any student who completed more than half of the challenge problems. Their picture is featured on the White Rock News & Events page.
