  • PARCC Assessments Replacing NJASK Grades 3-8 in 2014-2015  

    In 20114-2015, the PARCC assessments will replace the existing statewide assessments, the NJASK in grades 3-8 and HSPA in the high school.  New Jersey has been transitioning the NJASK to measure the CCSS over the past three years to provide local districts and schools the time necessary to shift practices and prepare students and educators for PARCC, which will measure the CCSS with fidelity in 2014-2015.

"State of the District Address"  2/12/15
 

Dr. Keith Lee Ellerbe

 
Last year, on Tuesday, February 10, 2014 the Willingboro School District lost a beloved member of our family.  Words could never express the loss, that we all experienced, with the passing of Dr. Keith Ellerbe. 
 
Seldom in the educational world do we meet a person of Dr. Ellerbe's caliber.  His stamina, passion and commitment to excellence for his students and staff could never be equaled. 
 
Indeed, I had the privilege and honor of working with Dr. Keith Ellerbe, as his Assistant Principal, at Garfield East Elementary School during the 2012-2013 school year.   To say that every day was an adventure would be an understatement.   Working with Dr. Ellerbe, one must always expect the unexpected. 
 
In closing, Dr. Ellerbe gave his heart and soul to his students!  In remembrance of that fun-loving spirit, I would like to share a video, taken of Dr. Ellerbe, greeting his students, as he did every morning, with a song and a smile.  This is the Dr. Ellerbe that I will always remember - "Singing a Rainbow!"
 
And, to quote an old Irish Blessing, "Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand."  We miss you, dearly, my friend!
