A painter and graphic designer, he will exhibit a series of watercolor paintings of female figures. The artist, who has been using a special Korean paper for his CSH display, portrays the differences in culture, philosophy and concept between Eastern and Western techniques in order to combine them in a complementary way.
Ms. Martin’s main focus when working in oils and mixed media is the creation of a balanced, lively artistic statement, according to CSH spokeswoman Janine LeGrand Casey. The artist will exhibit paint
ings ranging from abstract expressionism to realism.
Ms. Bernhaut is a specialist in nature/landscape and still-life color photography. Her photographs have a painting-like quality resulting from her use of the Polaroid image transfer process, which allows the transfer of a slide image onto watercolor paper via Polaroid film.
The exhibitions will be open to the public and free of charge daily from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Visitors are asked to enter the hospital through the Ambulance Entry, 150 New Providence Road in Mountainside.

Board President Darielle Walsh thanked the Language Arts Committee, which crafted the proposed curriculum. “I think our students are going to be well-served by it,” she stated.
Copies of the curriculum are available in the Curriculum Office on the second floor of the Administration Building at 302 Elm Street in Westfield.
In separate business, Superintendent of Schools Dr. William J. Foley presented the proposed schedule for sixth-grade students, which has been altered due to the Core Curriculum Standards and the upcoming enrollment bulge.
For sixth graders, the original eightperiod day would become a nine-period day to accommodate the Language Arts curriculum.
While examining the current schedule, board officials determined that students were exceeding the required 150 minutes per week for physical education. Therefore, this period was “rolled back” in order to “carve out two additional periods,” according to Dr. Foley.
As a result, 40 minutes for language arts was accommodated, as well as 40 minutes for mathematics. The health classes would become a part of the “cycle,” or ninth period, which also includes art, computers, and technology.
The proposed sixth-grade schedule includes a first period of mathematics, a second period of language arts and a third period of science. The fourth period would entail physical education from Monday to Wednesday, with Language Arts Lab on Thursday and Math Lab on Friday.
The schedule would continue with a fifth period of music from Monday to Wednesday, humanities on Thursday, and Public Speaking/Drama on Friday. Students would break for lunch during the sixth period.
The seventh period would include social studies instruction, with an eighth period of foreign language studies.
Dr. Foley said he would like to see the computer labs used not just as a place to learn how to operate a computer, but as a learning forum for all

subjects. Kenneth Shulack, Principal of Roosevelt Intermediate School, revealed that the committee which examined the schedule “did not just isolate the sixth-grade schedule,” but analyzed the needs and components of future grades as well.
The Superintendent observed, “The day isn’t any longer and the requirements seem to be increasing.”
Dr. Foley noted that students are already inundated with academic pressures and requirements. He stated that considering the possibility of a longer school day would be counterproductive.
Mrs. Walsh reminded board members that the sixth-grade schedule “has truly been a work in progress,” adding that the schedule would be a change for students, but “a good change.”
One concerned resident of Castleman Drive expressed fear that the students were being placed in a “pressure-cooker environment” which focused learning too much on the GEPA.
Dr. Foley responded, “I don’t want us to teach to the GEPA. I’m not entirely happy with the performance on the GEPA. I think there is room for improvement.”
He added that he received many telephone calls from concerned parents of Edison Intermediate School students who were worried about the test results.
Mr. Shulack assured the resident, “We are going to be looking at the whole child and will be cognizant of the fact that it will be a more academic day.”
In earlier business, Mrs. Walsh announced that the 1997-1998 Annual Report would be mailed to parents during the coming week. In addition, “A Blueprint for the New Millennium: Westfield Public Schools Strategic Plan” is currently available.
Mrs. Walsh also expressed “her deepest condolences” to the family of Board Vice-President Ginger L. Hardwick. Mrs. Hardwick’s husband, Steven L. Lapidus, died on February 17 following complications from surgery.
She reminded board members and the public that memorial donations may be made to the Steven Lapidus Scholarship Fund in care of the Westfield Foundation at 301 North Avenue, Westfield.
