    The South Jersey Music Edu- cation Partnership has once again been able to offer more than 50 scholarships for students to study music over the summer free of charge and will not be stopping there.

    The group is looking to reach even more students and offer even greater learning opportuni- ties. The Pinelands Jazz Festival was started last year to accom-

    plish this. “It literally came from a

    dream,” Coordinator of the Pinelands Jazz Festival David Bermingham said. “I was plan- ning a small concert last year at the Dr. James Still site, and that evening, I had one of those dreams that just keeps you up all night. By the end of the night, I

    s students return to school in

    the next two weeks – some

    even before Labor Day! – we

    all get back into a daily routine. The

    unofficial end to summer has passed,

    and with it, a return to a “normal”

    life – whether you were lucky enough

    to have a three-month vacation or not.

    Back to school signifies a new begin-

    ning, maybe even more so for many

    than the drop of the ball on New

    Year’s. It’s a time for looking ahead,

    not for looking back.

    Here at The Sun, back to school sig-

    nifies the start of a busier time. In the

    next few weeks’ papers, you’ll see cov-

    erage of the return to school – from

    stories about upcoming changes in the

    school district to high school sports

    team preview stories to photos of stu-

    dents arriving, backpacks in tow, to their first day.

    And as students prepare to embark

    on a new adventure in a new school

    year, we remind you that The Sun is

    here to shine light on your school,

    your team, your son, your daughter,

    your teachers, your group, your PTA,

    your organization and your neighbors.

    We want to congratulate Suzy on a

     job well done when she is named to

    her school’s honor roll, dean’s list or

    when she receives academic recogni-

    tion. We want to print photos of John-

    nie waving goodbye to mom or dad as

    he enters his new school for the first

    time. We want to announce your PTA’s

    meeting dates and times, so new mem-

    bers can join and support the school.

    We want to send a reporter to cover

    that big game, big event or big

    fundraiser for your school.

    But we can’t do all this without your

    help. Please reach out to us via e-mail
