Mrs. Furman’s second grade class at Robert’s Elementary is learning about some AMAZING African Americans. Each student has been given a different person to learn about. When the students are finished writing their report, they will be giving an oral presentation of their person to the class. As the other students are listening to the report, they will be writing down three important facts that they have learned about each amazing African American.
The student artists of Moorestown High School will be well represented at the upcoming and much-anticipated Burlington County High School Students’ Exhibition.

Moorestown High School’s Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL) Chapter was thrilled to host South Jersey local and on-air news reporter, Jennifer Joyce, as their monthly guest speaker on Thursday, December 18, 2014. FBLA-PBL is “a nonprofit 501(c)(3) education association with a quarter million students preparing for careers in business and business-related fields.”
One of the goals of the Moorestown High School FBLA-PBL Chapter, led by its advisor and MHS Business teacher Mr. Adam Roth, is to provide members with opportunities to interact with various types of business professionals spanning all industries. Each month the MHS chapter reaches out to the Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia professional community in hopes of providing its members a unique one-on-one experience with a local professional. By bridging the real business world with academia, these guests are able to share their success stories, the often long and difficult journey they have taken to reach their current position in their career and how the obstacles they have overcome have strengthened their character and, ultimately, their work.
Ms. Joyce discussed how she discovered her passion for broadcasting at an early age, which lead her to pursue a degree at Temple University in Journalism and Broadcasting. She related stories of how she secured her first on-air position right out of college and of the challenges she faced as a new reporter in a city that was not her hometown. Ms. Joyce also discussed with students the nature of the media business and how she has made a name for herself within the Philadelphia news market.
