Beacon Middle students rock the solar system Beacon Middle School (BMS) eighth grade students participating in a science project created nearly a hun- dred projects outlining the solar system. BMS science teacher Chris Lenhart said he was amazed with the scope of the projects. "I'm re- ally proud of my kids," said Lenhart. "They showed cre- ativity in using all types of materials." Just a few of the students who participated are shown sitting amid nu- merous projects. They are (at right l-r) Andrea Richardson, Dino Nardo, Rebecca Slacum, Verity Watson, Jesse Fusco, Tashauna Krouse, Jon Good- win, Monica Rokos, Andrea Moncrief, Jennifer Price, Michael DeBarr, Jordon Blankenship and Charles Parent Moreau. Students used many differ- ent materials and concepts to depict the solar system - from suspending planets (below and right) and moons inside a cardboard box to attaching the solar system to a plywood board.

"I've been meeting with every group of workers telling them my expectations and asking what I can do for them," said Sudimak. "I'm also really impressed with the PTO." The month of November was a transition month. Sudimak spent time at Beacon helping new Assistant Principal Dave Frederick Jr. settle in, and time at Rehoboth learning the ropes from former Principal O.D. Basinski. "I am not changing a lot of things," said Sudimak. "My phi- losophy is to observe how things are running because they're run- ning smoothly. Assistant Principal Kevin Mumford and O.D. Basinski have done an out- standing job getting things started this year." Frederick, a former special edu- cation teacher for Beacon, said he enjoyed working for Sudimak and Buckmaster. "I was sad to hear Sudimak was leaving," said Frederick. "But I hope to continue to do the great job he did." Rehoboth Elementary School is a school under review according to No Child Left Behind Legislation. The school missed standards in three categories which are also called cells: special education, African American Students and low income stu- dents. "I hope we meet standards in every cell," said Sudimak. "It's a difficult job, but I believe we can do it. Our school improvement plan is already done. It's my goal to make sure we are following it. Our biggest challenge is special education. I want to make sure all special education students are get- ting the accommodations they need while taking the test. We need to make sure teachers are teaching to the standards and exposing kids to the types of ques- tions they'll see. We're also using our paraprofessionals in creative ways. Our music, physical educa- tion, computer and art teachers are working with students on their language arts and math skills when they are not teaching other classes." Sudimak plans to focus his energy on helping students meet the standards on the Delaware State Testing Program and getting to know his staff and the Rehoboth community. co116000000 investment p administered b)' Fidelity Investments an- can help you prepare for your child's future.
