The Phenomenal Friday blog is dedicated to highlighting the accomplishments of the Millville Public School Employees!
"I want to extend my heartfelt thanks and give a big shout out to everyone who helped at Bacon last week while I was out. Pat Wulk and Bobby Barber covered the staff meeting, Dr. Moore made herself available here during the school day, Kim Berry and Amy Scull handled some student issues and kept me in the loop during those few days, and our awesome staff stepped up and didn't miss a beat. Thank you all!"
-Mike Coyle, Principal
"A special shout out to Dominick Carapelli for putting out fires every day to assure that our school and staff are supported. You are truly a valuable member to our team and we could not embark on this journey without you."
"To all of my teachers who have helped with new teachers or assisted with unfilled positions. Thank you . Your kindness , support and professionalism does not go unnoticed. You rock!
-Stephanie DeRose, Principal

"Thank you to Kelli Adams and Patty DePasquale for processing the 6th grade immunizations."

"Our most sincere appreciation and thank you to: Maria Conigliaro, Jessica Hults, Kelly Irelan, and Andery Peterson. These classroom instructional aides took on the responsibility of getting a preschool classroom ready for the opening of school. They effectively dealt with all of the paperwork, tears and fears from parents and children that happen at this young age."
-JoAnn Burns, Principal
"After careful data analysis on AP Lit & Comp exam scores, 82% of our test-takers passed the exam compared to 47.4% nationally. Congratulations, to Tara Cotton for all her hard work, as well as, all the students' previous high school English teachers. Way to go Millville English Department!"
-Maggie Colina, Supervisor
"I would like to thank Brian Robinson, Steve Saul, and Mike Coyle for allowing me the time to sit with their K-2 staff for an hour each this week. The transition to a new math program is not easy and I really appreciate the time to sit with the teachers who are living it every day to hear what's going well, what's difficult to implement, and just to let them vent their frustrations if necessary. I have learned a lot from these meetings that I wouldn't be able to get otherwise. Thanks for allowing us the time to chat."
-Bobby Barber, Supervisor
"Dr. Pete Arsenault has been a tremendous resource for our new self-contained BD program at MSHS. Pete‘s enthusiasm and dedication to making sure the program has a solid foundation is appreciated by all. Pete is constantly looking at ways to improve the education and lives of our students."
-Steve Matusz, Exec. Director Special Services
"I would like to personally thank Henry Hartman for dropping everything to help me find a last minute location for my Data Presentation to the History and English Departments this week. The band room worked perfectly. We had enough space for the entire group and appreciated the air conditioning! Thanks again."
-Pat Wulk, Supervisor
"Thank you to Bob Trivellini, Henry Hartman and the grant writing team at Rieck Avenue School. In a short period of time, a grant application for arts integration and STEM was able to be written and submitted. Thank you, especially to Bob for crafting and submitting the grant. We couldn't have done it without these tremendous efforts."
-Brian Robinson, Principal
