2013-2014 SCHOOL YEAR!!!!
Boys holding hands Work as a Team Improve Grades Respect Overall progress Girls Holding Hands
On September 9th, the entire school gathered to kick off the 2013-2014 school year by pledging our commitment to reaching classroom and individual goals for success. Each class created a classroom goal and each student added an individual goal that he or she will work towards during this exciting and challenging school year. Class representatives read each classrooms goals and together, holding hands, we pledged to support and encourage each other throughout the school year so that each one of us could achieve our goals! It was a great way to kick off the first full week of school!

We’re STILL Going Green


Dear Parents/Guardians,

The Dr. Gerald H. Woehr Elementary School will continue it's commitment to finding sustainable, environmentally-friendly solutions to how we conduct daily activities as we enter our second year of participation in the New Jersey Sustainable Schools Program. That means…WE ARE STILL GOING GREEN! Therefore, we will continue utilizing the school Website and other "green" methods of communication to keep you updated on events, activities, and other important information. Just like last year, all school news, flyers and announcements will be located on the school's webpage and in the Dr. Gerald H. Woehr Elementary School’s Virtual Backpack. In addition, class communication such as homework, schedules, class announcements and class news will be regularly updated and accessible on your child’s teacher webpage.

We hope you find the website easy to navigate and the content informative. You are encouraged to spend time browsing through the webpage t olearn more about topics such as school announcements and news, the school’s calendar of events, PTO news, monthly lunch menus and the Parent Newsletter. You will be able to download school forms through the Virtual Backpack tab and view flyers and other information that would traditionally have been sent home in your child’s backpack. 

Thank you for your continued support.  Should you have any questions or if you would like to share any ideas with us please contact the Elementary School main office at 609-758-6800 prompt 1-2-1.
