Thank you to Mrs. Williams and Mrs. Dancer and our very talented students for creating our entry into the The NJ DEP Rain Barrel Challenge!
Rain Barrel Challenge  

   Fourth grade students in Mrs. Dancer’s class worked with Mrs. Williams in art class to create an amazing painted rain barrel that the NJ Department of Environmental Protection gave to them. In December of 2015, an environmentalist from Trenton visited the class, brought the rain barrel, and taught the students all about how rain barrels can be used in our gardens to help conserve water and water our plants. They began to participate in the 2016 Rain Barrel Challenge.

   Students worked within the theme of “Protect Me from Marine Debris” and learned about how harmful garbage is to wildlife in the Barnegat Bay. Acrylic paint was used by the students and they chose to create a sunset background and silhouettes of Barnegat Bay wildlife in dark colors.

    Students learned how to work together as a group and the result was a beautiful rain barrel that shows creative thinking skills.  The rain barrel will be used in the school garden to catch rain water that will then be used to water the plants. The students have a lot of positive memories about the whole process in creating their rain barrel. They also became environmental ambassadors for the Barnegat Bay.

Letter from the Principal 
Welcome to the Dr. Gerald H. Woehr Elementary School. Many factors go into providing students with the superior education they will receive at Dr. Gerald H. Woehr Elementary School. Teachers and staff are committed to creating and maintaining a safe learning environment for all students. Together, we work every day to provide students with a positive, caring school climate and culture to enable them to blossom intellectually, emotionally, and socially.
At Dr. Gerald H. Woehr Elementary School, teachers are committed to helping every child maximize his or her potential. Technology is incorporated into the learning process and teachers focus on expanding student's creativity to  help them solve real world problems. By focusing on the child as a whole, teachers are helping students develop life-long learning skills.
In addition to developing academic skills, we work to develop good individual character and citizenship in every student. A school with a positive climate is one where students and staff are kind, caring, and help one another in every way possible, every day.
Numerous studies show that children do better in school when their parents/guardians are involved and take an interest in their education. Parents/guardians, please take advantage of the many opportunities you will have to be involved in your child's education and maintain an open line of communication with your child's teachers throughout the entire school year.
Students, come to school prepared to be engaged and challenged by your teachers each day and they will help you achieve your personal best. At Dr. Gerald H. Woehr Elementary School, we are committed to helping every child, every day, whatever it takes.
