The November 20th Holmdel Board of Education meeting was held at the William R. Satz School. At this public meeting, Holmdel administrator Meryl Gill, introduced a group of distinguished professionals, our school nurses, and acknowledged each of them for their efforts in receiving the Asthma School Friendly Award for Holmdel Schools. Mary Carlsson, Jane Denton, Barbara Wagner, and Frances Flannelly, were each presented with the award by their respective principals. They achieved this honor through their dedication to education of parents and faculty, as well as their focus on providing a safe, clean air environment for asthma patients and all students within the Holmdel School District. Only 15% of schools in the state of NJ have qualified for this honor and their efforts are appreciated by all faculty and staff. 

Support Sen. Barbara Buono - November Election - Issues 2013: Who is a friend of Education?

On September 11, 2013, at 10:45am, the staff and students of William R. Satz filed into the high school auditorium, wearing red, white, and blue, to participate in an assembly organized by HTEA.  The assembly was to commemorate the heroes and victims of September 11, 2001.  Members of the community, the Board of Education, police department, and fire department were invited to the event.    

The assembly started off with a Flag Salute provided by the Colts Neck Color Guard Jr. ROTC and the singing of our National Anthem.  The National Anthem was sung by Linda Chorney, a Grammy nominated singer and song writer.  After the National Anthem, Mrs. Chorney sang, “We Bless America”, “When I Sing”, and “Martin”.  The staff and students were encouraged to sing along with the chorus of each song.    Mrs. Chonrey told a story about each song before she sang. Each song had a special meaning to Mrs. Chorney, involving 9/11 and the Boston bombing.  The songs brought tears to many of the audience’s eyes.

Before the assembly concluded, our HTEA President, Mrs. King thanked the community, Board of Education, police officers, and fire fighters for all of their hard work work.  The audience stood and cheered for their hard efforts.  Following the cheers of the audience, a short video about “The Sandy Ground Project: Where Angels Play” was shown.  The goal of this project is to build 26 playgrounds in honor of the 20 students and 6 teachers killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School, in New Jersey, in the areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy.  The students of Satz were asked to donate a dollar each in the efforts to build one of the playgrounds in New Jersey.   

The 9/11 assembly organized by HTEA was one to remember with many students and staff members talking about the assembly for the remainder of the day.  The HTEA was proud to provide such a moving assembly to the community and hopes to bring more events like this to the community in the future. 

A special thank you goes out to Kelly Burns a teacher at W.R. Satz and of course Linda Chorney who made this assembly possible.

We also would like to thank NJEA for supporting this event.
