Scotch Plains- Fanwood Public Schools

Brunner School continues to implement its prototype classroom that integrates computer technology into daily class work. Using grant money obtained by fourthgrade teacher Eloise Schundler, the classroom offers numerous computers, desks, a laptop computer and large- image projector to create a near state- of- the art environment.

The school this year also will focus on the districtís new language arts curriculum for all grades. The new curriculum will incorporate a thematic, unified approach that will be carried through into several disciplines.

At Coles School this year, the new district- wide reading program will be introduced. The school also has expanded its inter- grade grouping in science this year to grades 3, 4 and 5. In the program, students are rotated into one teacherís classroom and the teacher is able to become an expert in that area of science.

This will be the sixth year of a school program in which senior citizens serve as guest readers twice a month. Another emphasis this year will be the expansion of the schoolís outdoor science area. In the wooded area, students will identify fauna and some natural vegetation will be added.
