Kenilworth Public Schools Awarded $20,000 Grant
Kenilworth Public Schools Awarded $20,000 Grant
01/04/2018
Kenilworth Public Schools Awarded $20,000 Grant by New Jersey Healthy Communities Network (NJHCN) January 4, 2018 [Kenilworth, NJ] – Late in December, Dr. Thomas Tramaglini was notified by the New Jersey Healthy Communities Network (NJHCN) that the grant application the district developed seeking $20,000 from the Community Grants Program of the New Jersey Healthy Communities Network was approved. Mrs. Suzie Crincoli, a parent and doctoral student at Rutgers, as well as a nurse co-wrote the grant with Dr. Thomas Tramaglini. The Executive Summary of the Grant noted the following: The Kenilworth Public School District is dedicated to creating adaptable life-long learners who are responsible citizens. The district expects high achievement in academics and beyond. The district believes in educating the whole child by ensuring that our students are safe, healthy, supported, and engaged, all while being challenged. We aim to connect all learning opportunities in our schools to impact our community and beyond. The intent of our work in attaining this grant is to engage our students with our community in healthy living. We know that establishing healthy behaviors at a young age will have a lifelong impact. Unfortunately, while we have an ever important need to developing healthy individuals, ever diminishing funding is allocated towards curriculum that is tested for school accountability purposes. By procuring this grant, we hope to develop a sustainable model for school accountability which is a model for other schools. The proposal included three lenses: inter-curricular, extra-curricular, and community. First, within our schools (inter-curricular) we will utilize grant funds to develop a fit camp program for our students (K-12) that enhances our curriculum and is based on healthy choices, specifically targeting food. Staff will be trained (in areas that we typically do not have an opportunity to do) and a curriculum will be developed for replication in other schools. Second, we will partner with Kenilworth Recreation to establish a community garden program where our students serve as garden ambassadors. The garden will support an afterschool healthy snacks program where we will grow snacks and take advantage of the education involved in such a project. Finally, a third lens will target building relationships with local businesses in our community. David Brearley is currently working to expand an open-campus project where upperclassmen would be able to leave the building for lunch. The grant would support the establishment of a school-community committee which would facilitate the development of healthy options in local delis and restaurants. The grant will begin later in January and will last for two yea
