WELCOME TO THE 2014-2015 SCHOOL YEAR AT
MILFORD BROOK SCHOOL!
ROSETTA STONE LANGUAGE SELECTION
Parents/Guardians of Students in Grades 2-5
Please choose your Rosetta Stone language by September 15, 2014.
Click HERE to complete the form.
As per Dr. Monroe's email which was backpacked through email:
Students in Grades 2-5 use Rosetta Stone instruction to meet their New Jersey World Language requirement. You have one opportunity per year to select your child’s Rosetta Stone language.
If you choose to change your child’s language, the progress report from your child’s previous language will no longer be available after September 15. You may print a progress report from the current account until that time if you wish to do so.
If you have more than one child in grades 2-5 and wish to specify new language choices for more than one of them, you must submit a form for each of your children for whom you want a language change.
If your child is enrolled in our district’s English as Second Language program, you may select American English as your child’s Rosetta Stone language.
If you do not submit a form by September 15, your child will be registered for Latin American Spanish for the 2014-2015 academic year.
Thank you for your attention to this matter, and thank for your support of our schools.

Annual Integrated Pest Management Notice
For School Year 2014-2015
Dear Parent, Guardian, or Staff Member:
This notice is being distributed to comply with the New Jersey School Integrated Pest Management Act. Manalapan-Englishtown School District has adopted an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Policy and has implemented an IPM Plan to comply with this law. IPM is a holistic, preventive approach to managing pests that is explained further in the schools IPM Policy included with this notice.
All schools in New Jersey are required to have an Integrated Pest Management Coordinator (IPM Coordinator) to oversee all activities related to IPM and pesticide use at the school.
The IPM Coordinator for Manalapan-Englishtown School District is:
Name of IPM Coordinator: Paul De Marco
Business Phone number: 732-786-2500
Business Address: 54 N. Main Street, Englishtown, NJ 07726
The IPM Coordinator maintains the pesticide product label, and the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) (when one is available), of each pesticide product that may be used on school property. The label and the MSDS are available for review by a parent, guardian, staff member, or student attending the school. Also, the IPM Coordinator is available to parents, guardians, and staff members for information and to discuss comments about IPM activities and pesticide use at the school.
As part of a school pest management plan Milford Brook School may use pesticides to control pests. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) register pesticides to determine that the use of a pesticide in accordance with instructions printed on the label does not pose an unreasonable risk to human health and the environment. Nevertheless, the EPA and the DEP cannot guarantee that registered pesticides do not pose any risk to human health, thus unnecessary exposure to pesticides should be avoided. The EPA has issued the statement that where possible, persons who are potentially sensitive, such as pregnant women, infants and children, should avoid unnecessary pesticide exposure.
The following pesticides have been used at this location in the past 12 months:
Final All Weather Blox Brodifacoum 12455-89
Mother Earth Dust Diatomaceous Earth 499-509
Advion Ant Gel Indoxacarb (S-Enantiomer) 352-746
Eco Via EC Thyme Oil, FIFRA 25(b) Exempt
Roundup QuikPRO Ammonium salt of glyphosate 524-535
Meetings regarding the School Integrated Pest Management Program and/or adoption of the “IPM” Policy are scheduled for the following dates and times:
Thursday, September 18, 2014 at 7:30 PM in the Milford Brook Media Center
On the first day of school, all students will receive a copy of this letter and the related policy along with a consent form acknowledging that you have received and reviewed the information. Please look for this in the packet of information that is brought home on the first day of school and return to the school by the due date indicated on the form.
We look forward to a fantastic 2014-2015!

The New Piano Lab is here!!!
The Foundation for Manalapan Englishtown Regional Schools and The Peter Jay Sharp Foundation helped to fund a new state of the art piano lab for the general music classroom at Milford Brook. The grant submitted by Emily Magenheim, a general music teacher, will provide every student at Milford Brook with the opportunity to learn how to play the piano on their own personal instrument fully equipped with digital features, benches, adjustable stands, and headphones. With the collaborative efforts of Pat Berger, Barry Tobias, Emily Magenheim, as well as building and district administration, the piano lab has become a reality and a staple in music instruction at Milford Brook School.
Milford Brook's First and Fifth Grades Classes
Support the Make-A-Wish Foundation
On May 22nd, our first and fifth grade students held a live "Wax Museum." Leading up to this project, students in the first grade paired up with a fifth grade buddy to research a famous person from today or history. Students then conducted extensive research and developed a presentation. The culmination of the project further engaged students as they then dressed up as the person they researched. One hundred and ninety-three students then were set up in the gymnasium -- on a red carpet -- and acted as wax museum figures. Guests (family and friends of the students involved) were invited to visit the museum. In order to bring a wax figure to "life," guests needed to drop change in a bucket in front of the wax figure. The wax figure was then brought to life and shared his/her story with guests. The event raised one thousand and ninety-seven dollars -- in change. The students and teachers chose to donate this money to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
