KEARNY SCHOOL DISTRICT  - INDEPENDENT WATER TESTING RESULTS

Tectonic Engineering & Surveying Consultants P.C. has completed the pilot sampling and analysis of potable water collected from multiple Point of Use (POU) points at a total of seven (7) Kearny Schools. The sampling was performed to verify the quality of drinking water provided to Kearny Schools, specifically the levels of lead. This initial pilot test was implemented as a recommended progressive approach in conjunction with public communication.

Sampling and analysis of drinking water points of use (POUs) for lead was performed by Kearny Board of Education (KBOE)  all district public schools in response to public concerns.

Based on the testing results, the levels of lead found in the water taken from all sample points did not exceed appropriate limits. The reported lead concentrations were compared to both the public water service AL and the schools-recommended CL value.


Lead was not detected above the recommended  AL  of  15 PPB  or the  CL of  20 PPB in

Any of the fourteen (14)  POUs from a total of seven (7) different facilities

FULL STEAM AHEAD AT LINCOLN MIDDLE SCHOOL

 

 

The eighth grade STEAM club members have been busy transforming Lincoln Middle School’s central courtyard. The students recently designed and constructed a cold frame, used to protect plants from the harmful early spring frost. This new addition to the garden was made possible by a grant from Montclair State University Network for Educational Renewal (MSUNER).
The idea of building the cold frame originated within the Social Studies department, to have students grow vegetables typically found on a New England colonial farm in order to develop an appreciation of the hardships faced by early American settlers.
With the collaboration of LMS teachers and students, the project has developed into an interdisciplinary learning experience, infusing science, technology, engineering, math, and fun. After harvesting, students will calculate nutritional values and design a farm that would meet the nutritional needs of their families.


Lincoln Middle School worked diligently creating Valentine cards for dosomething.org.
In one week, the students handed in 1,168 cards which are donated to Chrill Care in Verona, N.J. The cards will be delivered along with daily meals in their  "Meals on Wheels" program, which feeds about 400 seniors.
For every card that was created the children received a free raffle ticket to win Ted E.

 
In the picture, please find Nicole Leon, our seventh grade student who won Ted E.  She, herself, created 64 Valentines in an effort to "share the love" and give Ted E. a new home!

I'm so proud of our LMS students for their loving efforts.
