Montville Township High School Color Run launches new tradition and exceeds goals for participation and fundraising

ColorrunnnnMontville Township High School Color Run launches new tradition and exceeds goals for participation and fundraising

Healthy-living 5K Run and Walk is a community hit for all ages

Montville Township, New Jersey – The Montville Township High School Class of 2017 held the first annual MTHS Color Run on Saturday, April 1, 2017. Despite temperatures in the low forties, with a wind chill and cloudy skies, the 5K Run was enthusiastically attended by students and adults of all ages.

The Class of 2017 set a goal of 200 people in the hopes of raising at least $2,500. The funds are earmarked to offset upcoming senior class activities. At race time, more than 400 were in attendance and over $6,000 was added to the class’ treasury.

“This is a wonderful outcome,” said MTHS Principal Douglas Sanford. “They more than achieved their goals with this event. It is incredible. They needed this fundraiser to offset the expenses of their senior activities. I know the students are grateful for the support of the entire Montville Township community.”

In the hour leading up to the race, which also included a one-mile walking component for those who needed a slower pace, friends and relatives warmed up, visited with one another, and participated in the Montville Township Public Schools’ live Facebook feed interviews.

First place in the 5K went to Class of 2017 President Jonathan Kraft. Runners crossing the finish line in second and third place were seventh grade student Robert George and sixth grader Jeremy Reiss, both from Robert R. Lazar Middle School in Montville Township.

Following the race, students, parents, teachers, families, friends, teams and even a Montville Township Board of Education Member, Michael Johnson, gathered on the MTHS parking lot to participate in the Color Burst; a flourish of Color Run powders released with excitement.

“A great day,” said Johnson, who wore his own MTHS Class of 2009 “Senior” t-shirt to the Color Run. “A lot of color, a lot of fun, and a great new tradition.”

Class of 2017 Advisors, MTHS teachers, Dana Bertoli and Jennifer Dubois were awed by the community participation and success of the event.

“We wanted this to be a healthy event with something for the entire community,” Dubois said. “It has more than exceeded our expectations.”

Montville Township Public Schools adopts “Next Generation” Board Management Technology

Montville Board of Education goes paperless -- BoardDocs Solution Enables Organization to Save Time, Money and Dramatically Increase Effectiveness

Montville Township, NJ — The Montville Township Board of Education is leveraging Cloud-based technology to radically improve the governance process while saving staff time and taxpayer dollars. The remarkably easy-to-use service will allow the organization to maximize the effectiveness of their board meetings with increased transparency, providing a basis for better and more open communication with the public, while dramatically improving productivity and saving thousands of dollars annually.

Earlier this year, the Montville Township Board of Education voted unanimously to phase out paper documentation in favor of the board management solution called BoardDocs Pro. On March 7, 2017 all members of the Montville Township Board of Education, as well as the Superintendent, Assistant Superintendents and Business Administration staff, began training on the new document management system. In only a few weeks, Montville Township Board of Education meetings have shifted to a nearly paperless format.

“I am trying to work exclusively off the BoardDocs agenda this evening,” said Board of Education President Dr. Matthew Kayne at the April 18 meeting. “Tonight I am not looking at a paper agenda, but rather BoardDocs, as we work to complete our transition to a paperless system.”

According to press materials provided by Emerald Data Solutions™, Inc., the company which developed and markets BoardDocs Pro, “the service is the fastest, easiest and most powerful paperless agenda solution on the market. Leveraging state-of-the-art technology, BoardDocs Pro does things no other board management solution can, for a price no other solution can match. BoardDocs Pro adds the most powerful board management tools ever created, including Comprehensive Meeting Management, Policy Management and a Multi-purpose Library, plus powerful and intuitive Workflow.”

BoardDocs Pro uses a structured, collaborative Workflow that is specifically designed to meet the unique needs and legal requirements of public school boards, county commissions, municipal governments and a wide variety of other types of governing bodies. Additionally, through the MetaSearch feature, members of the governing body will also have access to best practices from other organizations that are using the system, allowing them to gain important knowledge about initiatives other governing bodies have considered and implemented. 

Electronic distribution will not only save time and resources, but it will also provide unprecedented public access to agenda items and other board-related information via the Montville Township Public Schools’ Web site, www.montville.net. This process will allow interested parties to review information prior to meetings. After the meeting, individuals can review the agenda items and see what action the board took, complete with voting results. All documents associated with the meeting are automatically archived and can be accessed by date or by using the system’s comprehensive Search feature.

The new board management features can be accessed via the Montville Township Public Schools’ Web site at www.montville.net. BoardDocs Pro information is available under the Board of Education/ Meeting Schedule, Minutes and Agendas tabs. For questions regarding the governance initiative, contact diane.maggiore@montville.net .


For more information about BoardDocs Pro, call (800) 407-0141 or visit www.boarddocs.com to experience the premier board management solution firsthand.

Friends each gift ponytail to Locks of Love

Valley View Elementary Students share hair with children experiencing medical hair loss

Montville Township, NJ – Anya Sinha and Charvi Kanna of Valley View Elementary School in Montville, New Jersey wanted to do something nice this March, so they decided to donate their hair to Locks of Love.

“We planned to go at the same time,” said Kanna. “But we couldn’t.”

Still, they went.

Donating over 10” of hair, Sinha went first.

“I wanted to help people,” Sinha said. “So I donated my ponytail so that someone else could use my hair.”

Kanna, who donated 12” of hair, agreed. “I wanted to give my hair to people with cancer. I wanted to help make others happy.”

Locks of Love is a non-profit organization that provides hair pieces to financially disadvantaged children, throughout the United States and Canada, who experience long-term medical hair loss. It takes 6 to 10  ponytails to make one wig. Hair contributions must be at least 8” to 10” long in order to be used in a wig. Many area hair solons participate in the program, often cutting, styling and shipping for free. Both Sinha and Kanna went to Christina’s Solon on Changebridge Road in Montville Township.

According to each of the students, the decision to share their hair has been a rewarding one.

Specific requirements for donating hair can be found on the Locks of website.

Valley View Elementary School is one of seven Montville Township Public Schools.

Montville Township High School Color Run shaping up to be a new tradition

Walk/Run event exceeds early expectations and blazes trail for healthy-living awareness and community-wide participation

Montville Township, New Jersey – The place to be this Saturday, April 1, 2017 is at the exciting Montville Township High School Color Run. Over 300 people have already signed up for the fun, healthy-living, family-friendly event. A 5K run will begin at 10:00 a.m. Walkers will embark on the 1-mile course at 10:30. Everyone is welcome to participate. Registration ends on Friday, March 31. Registration is on-line at Montville.net. Click on The Color Run flyer for more info and to register.

“This is an event for families or individuals,” said Dana Bertoli. “Anyone from anywhere can participate because there is something for everyone at the MTHS Class of 2017 Color Run.

Bertoli, an MTHS Mathematics Teacher, is also the Varsity Girls Soccer Coach and a Senior Class Advisor.

In addition to a 5K Run and 1-mile Walk, there will also be a DJ and a spring-like spectacle called a Color Explosion.

“This event will be fun and it supports a great cause: our 2017 graduates. It will be a healthy, active and colorful day,” Bertoli explained.

Organized by student, teacher and administration volunteers, the Class of 2017 Color Run idea was the result of a brainstorming session between the senior class officers and Principal Douglas Sanford. The goal for the event was to involve at least 200 people from the school, the district and the community at large. By March 30, the original goal had been far surpassed and over 320 had registered. Proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to fund the 2017 MTHS Senior Prom.

“The enthusiasm for The Color Run has been tremendous,” Bertoli added. “This event feels like the beginning of a new MTHS tradition. We are prepared to accommodate hundreds more, so no one has to miss this exciting opportunity. I hope everyone registers on-line by March 31 and comes out to enjoy the fun.”

Montville Township High Schools’ first ever Color Run is attracting a lot of excitement. Founded in 2011, the mission of The Color Run Organization is “to bring people together and make the world a happier, healthier place. “.

“This is an exciting new program for MTHS,” Principal Sanford said. “The Color Run will help create awareness for healthy living and raise funds for an important cause. Already there are over 300 people signed up to participate. Wouldn’t it be great if the entire community came out to raise awareness for healthy living?”

“This is an active event but you can do it at your own pace,” said Bertoli. “There is no time limit. You can run, jog or walk. It is a fun, colorful, family-friendly event.”

To participate in the first Annual MTHS Color Run, people must register on-line by the end of the day on Friday, March 31. Fundraising levels range from $25 to $35. To learn more or to register go to: Montville.net and click on The Color Run image.
