Relay for Life brings
together communities

Science fair fun

Medford and Mt. Laurel merge for this year’s
event June 4 at Lenape High School track
By KRISTEN DOWD
The Sun
Fourteen years ago, Kathy
Tyrrell was looking for her silver
lining.
Tyrrell’s father had passed
away from cancer, and the Shamong resident wanted to turn
this tremendously negative event
into something positive. She
came across Medford’s Relay for
Life, signed up and has never
looked back.
“I think cancer is something
that makes you feel alone a lot of
times. This makes you feel like
you’re not alone,” Tyrrell said.
“And if you’ve lost someone,
there’s other people here going
through the same thing. It’s really
helpful in that way.”
Tyrrell now serves as the volunteer event chair for Relay for
Life Medford-Mt. Laurel. Medford
has hosted the fundraiser for 15
years. Mt. Laurel’s event started
five years ago. This is the first
year the two towns have merged.
“It’s a really great event where
the communities come together.
There are survivors. There are
caregivers. There are young kids
and older people,” Tyrrell said.
“It’s just a really nice community

event.”
Relay for Life Medford-Mt. Laurel begins at 3 p.m. on Saturday,
June 4, and runs through 6 a.m.
on Sunday, June 5, at the track at
Lenape High School, 235 Hartford
Road. Teams sign up, fundraise
and, at the event, walk laps
around the track.
“Relay for Life was started by a
doctor who was suffering from
cancer,” Tyrrell said. “The reason
why it runs overnight is because
cancer never sleeps. It’s to be
there for those people who are
awake in the middle of the night
because they’re scared or don’t
know what’s going to happen.”

Familiar face fills new role
After serving as Kirby’s Mill Elementary principal for seven years,
Mark Damon will now be in charge of district-wide technology plan
By SEAN LAJOIE
The Sun
On April 13, the Medford Township Board of Education appointed Kirby’s Mill Elementary
School Principal Mark Damon to
the position of educational technology coordinator for the district.
This has been a position that
has been in the district technology vision for nearly 10 years.
“It is something we always
knew was needed, but never had
the ability to implement or institute it,” Damon said.

Over the past year, a strategic
vision committee was created to
plan the direction of the district,
and a common demand for someone to coordinate technology surfaced several times.
The district’s goal is to advance
the
educational
experience
through highly effective collaboration, communication, critical
thinking and creativity for the entire school community.
The committee was interested
in implementing a 21st century
vision to effectively utilize technology to support student learning but was afraid it would go to

waste if someone was not put in
the position of managing it,
rolling it out and coordinating the
training staff.
“The
Medford
Township
School District is committed to
developing responsible digital citizens who can adapt to the everchanging global society,” Superintendent Joseph Del Rossi said.
After several interviews with
Del Rossi, district Director of Programming and Planning Tom
Olson and the school board,
Damon was selected as the No. 1

Moorestown grad Julie McGrory prepared to lead
Shawnee girls' lacrosse team against former coach, school
By MIKE MONOSTRA
The Sun
The annual girls’ lacrosse
game between Moorestown High
School and Shawnee High School
is always one of the most anticipated games of the season in
South Jersey. The two teams have
combined for 30 state championships. As of press time, both
teams were in the top-10 in New
Jersey, according to www.laxpower.com’s computer rankings, with
Moorestown ranked No. 5 in the
state and Shawnee ranked No. 8.
However, this year’s May 11
meeting between the two clubs
has an added storyline. First-year

Grory is a Moorestown High
School graduate and played
under Moorestown High School
head coach Deanna Knobloch.
McGrory will lead her Renegades
into Moorestown on May 11 for
the first time as the head coach of
an opposing team.
McGrory was a multi-sport athlete, playing basketball as well as
three seasons of lacrosse. McGrory scored 1,000 points for the
Quakers’ girls’ basketball team
during her career and went on to
play basketball at Gettysburg College after graduating from
Moorestown in 2008.
Looking back at her time on

her fondest memories weren’t

any specific games or moments.
“I remember the high expectations, the camaraderie, team
bonding and the feeling of being
part of something bigger than
yourself,” McGrory said.
Knobloch described McGrory
as a solid attacker during her
playing days. She said McGrory's
basketball background benefited
her on the lacrosse field.
“As an attacker, she understood
picks, rolls and ball screens and
utilized those skills to get open
and score some big goals,”
Knobloch said.

THE MEDFORD SUN — MAY 11–17, 2016

in our opinion

Push back school start times

108 Kings Highway East
Haddonfield, NJ 08033
856-427-0933

Kids need their rest, and pushing school start times to 8:30 a.m. would help
Dan McDonough Jr.

ast week, state education officials held two hearings to discuss the potential of moving
middle and high school start times to
later in the day. Proponents of the
measure say kids need their sleep, and
delaying the opening of schools will
help in that regard.
The American Academy of Pediatrics has recommended students start
class no earlier than 8:30 a.m., which is
why the Legislature passed a measure
last year to study the feasibility of
changing the state’s laws. Reports indicate that 85 percent of New Jersey’s
schools start before 8:30 a.m.
Doctors typically recommend teens
get eight to nine hours of sleep per
night. Most teens aren’t getting that
much sleep.
The easy and obvious solution

L

Your thoughts
What are your thoughts on pushing the
start time for middle schools and high
schools throughout our state to 8:30
a.m.? Let your voice be heard through a
letter to the editor.

would be for teens to go to bed earlier.
But is that realistic?
If classes start at 7:30 a.m., for example, teens would have to wake up about
an hour earlier, at 6:30 a.m., to allow for
the typical morning routine and travel
to school. To get the recommended
nine hours of sleep, this same teen
would have to shut his or her eyes by
9:30 p.m.
Yeah, right.
Adolescents naturally go to bed later
as they grow older; their hormones

keep them up and active at later hours.
In addition, weekday school activities –
such as sports, theater and other
clubs – take up more of their time immediately after school ends and also at
night, making it even harder for early
bedtimes to occur.
So is it really fair that as the day
grows longer for teens, we ask them to
wake up and be ready at the same time
as when they were in elementary
school and could easily be in bed earlier?
We don’t think it’s fair – or healthy,
for that matter.
We believe our state’s education officials should follow the recommendations of the AAP and push school start
times to 8:30 a.m. for middle schools
and high schools throughout New Jersey.

McGrory: ‘The girls have been working
very hard and playing together’
MCGRORY
Continued from page 4
Knobloch. She’s had multiple former players move on to coaching
at the high school and college levels.
“I always think back to when
they were players, and it makes
me
smile
to
know
that
Moorestown girls lacrosse possibly played a small part in their decision to continue in the coaching
field,” Knobloch said.
As much as McGrory appreciates her time at Moorestown, she
emphasizes she is now a Renegade. McGrory served as an assistant coach under former head
coach Aimee Seward last year be-

fore taking over as head coach
this season.
So far, McGrory has Shawnee
off to a fast start in 2016. The
Renegades started the season
with a perfect 13-0 record, including a win at home against Lenape
High School, the team that defeated Shawnee in the South Jersey
Group IV championship game
last year.
McGrory cited the leadership
of the Renegades’ seniors as well
as her team’s disciplined play for
Shawnee’s fast start.
“The girls have been working
very hard and playing together,”
McGrory said. “We have a lot of
unselfish play with all of our girls
contributing in important ways.”
Moorestown started the season
with a 10-3 record, but all three

losses came against some of the
best teams in the Mid-Atlantic region. Their only loss against a
New Jersey school came against
Ridgewood High School, the topranked team in the state. The
other two losses came against
Garden City High School in New
York and Our Lady of Good Counsel High School in Maryland, two
teams ranked in the top-15 in the
nation.
Knobloch said her team has
had to overcome injuries this
year and is trying to build momentum with the postseason approaching.
“Our main concern is to keep
getting better each game so that
by the end of the season we are
playing at our highest level,”
Knobloch said.

clude 4 million people in more
than 20 countries. It’s the largest
grassroots fundraising event for
the American Cancer Society.
And while some of the money
raised goes toward research, a
large portion stays in the communities where it originated.
“It is earmarked to go back to
the services provided in Burlington County,” Tyrrell said.
These American Cancer Society services include Roads to Recovery, where volunteers give
rides to those going to chemotherapy or treatment, and Look Good
Feel Better, which helps teach
women undergoing treatment
how to cope with skin changes
and hair loss by teaching scarftying, makeup applications and
more. There is also (800) 227-2345,
the 24-hour help line to give answers to those facing cancer.
“They can get information on

anything – insurance questions,
clinical trials, what to expect in
their treatment,” Tyrrell said.
Relay for Life Medford-Mt. Laurel kicks off with an opening ceremony. Cancer survivors walk the
first lap together, and then caregivers join for the second lap.
Teams set up tents inside of
the track to act as home base for
the overnight event. They bring
their own food, but there are also
on-site vendors. There are games
and activities the entire time, too.
“Last year, we were playing
kickball at 3 o’clock in the morning,” Tyrrell said with a laugh.
At 9 p.m., a Luminaria Ceremony is held, with white candle-lit
bags lining the track.
“The Luminaria Ceremony is
just so special,” Tyrrell said. “The
bags are in honor of survivors or
in memory of people we have lost,
with names on them. At our
event, we have a bagpiper come in
and play, and all the lights are
turned off on the track.”
These bags can also be purchased before the event for a $10
donation, which is part of the
fundraising efforts by the participating teams. The American Cancer Society hopes each individual
taking part raises at least $100.
The Relay for Life Medford-Mt.
Laurel has raised $36,253.69 as of
last week, with 33 teams and 220

participants. The goal is 56 teams
and $120,000.
“We set the goal based on what
Mt. Laurel individually raised
last year and what Medford
raised. It might have been a lofty
goal considering we merged,”
Tyrrell said.
But there is still plenty of time
to sign up and start fundraising.
Participants don’t have to live in
Medford or Mt. Laurel to take
part. The Shamong Strutters recently signed up. Team McDonald
is based in Tabernacle. Schools
are involved, too. For instance,
Seneca High School students have
donated thousands in the past.
Tyrrell also wants people to
know they can come enjoy the
event without signing up, although to participate and stay
overnight, registration is required.
“If people want to come and
check it out and see what it’s
about, they’re more than welcome,” Tyrrell said. “Hopefully,
they’ll get bit by the bug and
come back next year with a
team.”

register, visit www.relayforlife.

MAY 11–17, 2016 – THE MEDFORD SUN 13

Damon now responsible for embedding
technology into daily instruction
DAMON
Continued from page 2
candidate for the position.
Damon was looking to get back
to his roots after being a principal
for the past 12 years and felt this
position matched his passion for
technology.
As a teacher for five years in
Hillsborough, he utilized technology to motivate his students, engage them, communicate with
parents and the community, and
to allow for collaboration long before 21st century learning goals
were even a consideration.
He created materials for both
the delivery of instruction and
the assessment of learning and
utilized one of the first online
Gradebooks to allow parents a
window into their child’s learning.
Damon was instrumental in piloting the first 1:1 Chromebook
classroom in Medford Township
along with his Kirby’s Mill computer teachers Andy Reuter and
Christy Green.
“Working with them, we were
able to do site visits, independent
research and put together a plan
for implementing devices into the
classroom,” Damon said.
Damon will now be responsible
for leading the district’s initiative
for embedding technology into
the daily instruction for students.
He will design new policies,
procedures and protocols that
will assist in selecting end user
hardware for students and staff,
redesigning the technology labs,
helping the district’s IT engineer
to ensure the district’s technology
infrastructure accommodates the
district’s needs and providing the
leadership for professional development for administrators and
teachers.
“Mr. Damon will play an integral part in the development of
curriculum necessary to effectively integrate technology into
instruction in a thoughtful, systematic way,” Del Rossi said.
Damon expressed a particular
excitement toward being able to

work with and learn from teachers throughout Medford.
He has already begun this
process after conducting what he
referred to as a “Chromebook cohort” with several teachers to explore the ways they are using
technology in the classroom and
make improvements throughout
the district.
Maureen Schoenberger, the
computer teacher at Allen Elementary School, even created a
Google Plus page for Chromebook
users in Medford, enabling them
to learn from each other.
“It is people with similar passions to mine in technology and
education that I am excited to
work with,” Damon said.
The district is looking at a systematic deployment of Chromebooks in grades three to eight
with consideration of second
grade receiving the same. It also
has pods of iPads throughout the
district in PreK-2.
The top priority is to deploy
these devices through a managed
rollout and to address bandwidth
throughout the district through
the IT Department with the help
of the district IT manager, Shaun
Gray.
“Students coming back in September to a potential 1,000 new devices will put a strain on our infrastructure, so the most immediate attention needs to be given to
a strong backbone to support our
vision, and working with teachers to begin infusing the technology into their curriculum in meaningful ways,” Damon said.
He is hopeful the district will
begin moving toward more personalized learning through the
use of technology.
“We have a solid curriculum in
place already that teachers are delivering very well. My hope is we
can utilize technology to take it to
the next level, to bring the world
into the classroom and break
down the walls of the schools to
allow for collaboration and creation,” Damon said.
Though he is excited for the
next step of his career, he could
not say enough about what the
group at Kirby’s Mill has done for
his occupational growth.

“I have become very attached
to the people that make up
Kirby’s Mill. They are the fabric
that makes the school great. They
are dedicated professionals who
love to teach, love to learn and
love to have fun,” he said.
The board has begun to receive
resumes and compile a list of candidates for the Kirby’s Mill Elementary School principal position.
