Ronald McDonald House

 

Dear Students, Parents and Community Members:

Deerfield Township School joined the Pop Tab Collection Program in 2004 and will continue during the upcoming school year.  The money collected from the recycling of the tabs is used to operate the Ronald McDonald Houses of Camden, NJ (Cooper Hospital) and Philadelphia, PA (Children’s Hospital) for the wonderful services they provide to families of critically ill and traumatically injured children. 

The Pop Tab Collection Program was established in 1987 by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Ronald McDonald House community.  To date, over 400 million pop tabs have been collected, generating over $300,000.

Please feel free to collect tabs in bags or larger boxes.  At the end of each week or each month, you may drop your tabs in the Deerfield Township School main office and we will see that they are equally distributed to the above houses.

On behalf of the Ronald McDonald Houses, thank you for your kindness, caring, and support.

Sincerely,

Deerfield Township School


Scootpad
How ScootPad Works

ScootPad is an adaptive, online learning platform for grades PreK-8 covering Common Core Math, ELA and more.

ScootPad uses adaptive algorithms, predictive analytics, data visualization and gamification to deliver personalized learning for each student.

Deerfield Township School now has access to a great resource for improving students’ skills in math and language arts, as well as to assist preparation for the State mandated tests.  We have purchased a school license for a web-based program called SCOOTPAD, which is accessible to students from school or home.  If you have Internet access, your child can access SCOOTPAD from home as well as school to practice math and reading skills. 

A sheet will be distributed to your child that gives an overview of the program as well as your child’s USER NAME/ LOGIN NAME and PASSWORD.  We are very excited about the potential benefits this program can bring to all our students and we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity by using SCOOTPAD at home. Please feel free to contact your child’s homeroom teacher, the Assistant Principal, Mrs. Galasso, or Scootpad at 1-800-994-0706 or support@scootpad.com if you have any questions.
