ES Coding Club’s first session (4th, 5th, and 6th grade) ended with a small graduation ceremony and fond farewells. The 3rd grade group is off to a wonderful and productive start, with a special surprise thrown in the mix! A special parent donated FOUR Sphero 2.0 robots for the students to experiment with. Now, students can physically apply what they’ve been learning digitally! Thank you for supporting this club. We look forward to its continued success and to student excitement and growth!

JHS Students Perform at the Rowan University Jazz Festival

The Jenkintown HS Jazz Ensemble performed at the Rowan University Jazz Festival in Glassboro NJ on February 17, 2017. After our performance, we were joined by the Rowan jazz faculty who sat in with the band. They demonstrated some techniques to make us sound better and played with our band. This is our second year performing at the festival and the clinic is very helpful for our students!
