  • Student Voice

    Student Voice

    Each month Mr. Sweeney meets with a group of nominated students for what he refers to as an Eagle's Nest meeting. The primary focus of these meetings is to provide students the opportunity to have their voice heard specific to a school-related topic. Something new I'm trying this year is to extend the discussion beyond the Eagle's Nest and give all students at Barton the chance to be heard. Any Barton student can record a short video clip of themselves answering our monthly Eagle's Nest question.

    Joe Meloche head shot

    WE congratulate our Superintendent, Dr. Joseph Meloche, for being named the 2021 New Jersey Association of School Administrators State Superintendent of the Year!

    Dr. Meloche is now a candidate for the National Superintendent of the Year Award by the American Association of School Administrators' (AASA). He will be formally acknowledged by the New Jersey State Board of Education at their Annual Recognition Ceremony on December 2nd.

    NJASA Executive Director Dr. Richard G. Bozza said, "Joe is a dedicated hard-working professional who continually strives to improve the quality of education for all students. He exemplifies the best a chief education officer can be."

    In accepting this prestigious honor, Dr. Meloche said, "This recognition reaffirms my belief that the superintendent provides the critically essential leadership required to afford an academic environment of excellence throughout the district which embraces diversity while motivating and engaging all students to be successful as scholars and as people.”

    He continued, “I thank NJASA, the Cherry Hill Board of Education and all district and community involved stakeholders for their support and I look forward to representing New Jersey’s chief education officers on the national level.”

    Under Dr. Meloche’s leadership, significant strategic planning processes harnessed the voices and perspectives of a vast cross section of the community resulting in the development of a new mission statement, the creation and launching of full day kindergarten in the district, and the development of multi-year strategic goals. More details about Dr. Meloche's accomplishments leading to the award are available on the NJASA's website.
