Besides writing grants, teachers and staff of our district spend their “extra” time fundraising for a variety of charities. Besides writing grants, teachers and staff of our district spend their “extra” time fundraising for a variety of charities. To the editor:

This past school year my youngest daughter had the opportunity to attend the Wet Project at Alder Middle School. She talked about her experience for days and couldn’t wait to go again. I recently learned that this project, and many more like it, is funded by grants that our Egg Harbor Township teachers write outside of their “contracted time.”

Mr. Thoms, a seventh-grade science teacher, received this year a $22,600 Disney grant to expand his marine science program at Fernwood Middle, allowing double the amount of students to participate. He, Mr. Puggi and Mrs. Oster also received 10 Sea Perch underwater robot kits that will enhance their STEM program at the Middle School.

There has been much discussion recently regarding New Jersey’s penalties for using a cell phone while driving, with some individuals complaining that the penalties are excessive.

Perhaps those people complaining have never stood over a loved one on life support, have never attended a funeral of a friend or family member, or experienced the harsh reality of permanent physical disability because some person was looking down at his or her phone or texting, rather than paying attention to what was in front, back or alongside of them.
