Delran_Superintendent

This evening, at the Delran Township Board of Education Regular Public Meeting, we will begin this meeting (and all future Regular Public Meetings) by recognizing student and staff member achievements.  This month we will recognize the student athletes who earned post season honors on our varsity teams, students and a thoughtful teacher who have been lobbying state legislators to approve an official state song and students who have earned special recognition statewide as musicians.  Our role as educators, regardless of title, is to watch children grow, develop and succeed.  Speaking on behalf of the Board of Education, it is a great honor to formally recognize excellence.

This evening, the following students from Delran High School will be honored:

  • Kevin Zataveski and Brendan Ryan: First Team WJFL Liberty Division, Football
  • Matthew Brownrigg: Second Team WJFL Liberty Division, Football
  • Michael Olivo, Shane Doherty and Ryan Ferreira: First Team…

Delran High School Journalism Class Advocates for a Safer Route 130

US highway Route 130 spans 23 miles through 12 municipalities in just Burlington County. Dubbed as NJ’s “most dangerous road for pedestrians,” Route 130 has claimed the lives of 16 civilians in just five years in Burlington County. Last year, Jacqueline McGraw, a resident of Delran, started a petition to build a bridge over the dangerous highway, that needed only 573 more signatures to be sent to the New Jersey Governor’s office.  The Bear Facts newspaper would like to reopen this campaign to protect the safety and social integrity of our great town.

Three schools lay near the highway, totaling over 2200 students who may need to cross the dangerous road on a daily basis. If we can save just one life, we can call our petition and the change in the community of Delran a success.  Please support us by signing our petition. For more information about the road, please reference  ‘The Battle Between Pedestrians and Automobiles”  in the January edition of The Bear Facts.
