needs of students, parents and school personnel in difficult times such as
this. Counselors are available for any student who may need or want assistance

KULA 21st CCLC Afterschool Program Application 2014-2015.pdf
Learning Adventures (KULA)
Enrolment is now closed.. any further applications will be on a waiting list
The students of W.O.Krumbiegel Middle School are invited to join Kean University Learning Adventures - a unique after school learning experience! Career Exploration, self-discovery and student empowerment are the cornerstones of this program for 135 students in grades 6 through 8, located at W. O. K. Middle School and administered by Kean University’s College of Education.
This program merges Kean University’s resources with Hillside District’s expertise to provide an exploration of career opportunities while challenging students to apply their academic skills to real-life and project-based learning experiences. All students participating in the project will complete the NJ Career Awareness Navigator Profile (NJCAN). Using this tool each student will develop an on-line profile of their career goals and a plan of action for achieving their goals. Parents and family members will be invited to sessions to participate in the planning and learn how they can assist their child with maximizing the high school experience to be fully ready to enter college upon graduation. Parent and students will be encouraged to “Think College Early” and workshops will be offered to help them prepare for college entry.
The after school component of the KU Learning Adventures will operate five days a week from 3:20pm - 6:20pm each day from October 1, 2013 through June 13, 2014. The summer component of the KU Learning Adventures will operate five days a week, four hours per day from July 7 through August 8, 2014.
The partners in this project, Kean University and Hillside Public Schools, have collaborated in developing this program to address the District’s Title I plan which emphasizes three areas for growth: improved mathematics achievement, increased use and integration of technology, and increasing the numbers of Hillside graduates who attend college. KULA will emphasize each of these areas in the implementation of 21st CCLC identified goals. As required by the NJ Department of Education, this program will also be offered to students attending Trinity Temple Academy.
“This project is funded in its entirety with federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act, Title IV, Part B, 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) grant funds through a grant agreement with the New Jersey Department of Education.”

We have parents that are looking for transportation. This area is on the Irvington border and is a long walk for our students to walk to school. We are looking for parents who live in that area and are willing to carpool or provide transportation service.
I very much appreciate those parents who have been involved in your chil'd education. I encourage those who haven't to start now. We are moving from "Good to Great" not only with words but with actions.
