    No. 31 Dean Noll sets up the offense as Shawnee High School boys basketball looks to spark a comeback. The Renegades dropped a close one last week to their rival Seneca, 69-64. Dean Austin and Noll led the team in scoring with 17 points apiece. The loss is their first in the conference this season and pulls them even with the Golden Eagles at 3-2 as they head into Thursday’s matchup with Camden. For more photos, please see pages 10 and 11.

    Kindergarten is the critical year that sets the tone for young students, as Medford Board of Ed- ucation Superintendent Joseph Del Rossi put it.

    The Medford Township Public Schools implemented its first- ever full-day kindergarten pro- gram in 2015 to allow for more in- structional time to prepare stu- dents for the elementary school curriculum.

    However, Del Rossi also wanted to better prepare parents for this big step in their child’s life, so he collaborated with the district’s

    kindergarten teachers to put to- gether the first-ever information- al night for parents of incoming 2016 kindergarteners on Jan. 20.

    “The better job that we do edu- cating in terms of prior to their kindergarten year, the better off  we’re going to be during their ca- reer in the district,” Del Rossi said. “We’re giving these students an advantage to a degree.”

    If you have a child who will be

    5 years of age on or before Oct. 1, he or she will be eligible for the 2016-2017 kindergarten class.

    Due to the increased rigor of  the expectations provided by the

    curriculum for these kids, Del Rossi conducted research to seek the benefits of being developmen- tally ready for kindergarten.

    This led to the four-week pro- gram during the summer in which incoming kindergarteners are identified through a district wide pre-assessment used to ac- quire information regarding

    Kindergarten

    information night After implementing a full-day kindergartenprogram, district kicks off 2016 with night  to prepare incoming students, their parents

    On Jan. 6, the Lenape Regional High School District Board of Ed- ucation held its annual reorgani- zation meeting. At the meeting, the board recounted the results of  this past November’s election in

    which three seats on the board were filled.

    Up for re-election were Med- ford Lakes representative Steve Lee, Mt. Laurel representative John Jeffers and Shamong repre- sentative Ted Shinske.

    All three members ran unop- posed and won their respective elections.

    Lee was elected with 683 out of  689 votes cast for his seat, Jeffers

    was elected with 4,754 out of 4,801 votes cast for his seat, and Shinske was elected with 491 out of 502 votes cast for his seat. All three men once again took the oath of office and were sworn in to their seats.

    During the meeting, the board also nominated and approved the

    appointment of Southampton representative Linda Eckenhoff  to the position of board president. Eckenhoff previously served as vice president for the past two years and will take over for Med- ford representative David Stow, who held the position for 2014 and 2015.

    The board then nominated and
