PORTABLE PLANETARIUM Every Elementary grade student
experiences astronomy as part of the science curriculum. This is a
very exciting and important part of the curriculum for students and
teachers. In the past we borrowed a planetarium through the county
or Raritan Valley Community College. Owning our own Planetarium
enable OHES teachers to utilize the planetarium more on their own
time and schedule, extend its use to more students and enable our
teachers to become even more diverse in its application across the
curriculum. We have many teachers trained to present the portable
planetarium to the students. The digital projector is designed
specifically for use in portable and small fixed domes.
flexibility of digital projection enables educators to cover a much
broader and deeper range of topics, a vast improvement over portable
analog (pinhole) projectors. Think of the difference between using a
slide projector and a computer. Information regarding planetarium
can be found at www.digitaliseducation.com.

squad that leads the band at games, parades and events.
The Montgomery Township Education
An Investment in our Children’s Future
The Montgomery Township Education Foundation is
an independent, non-profit organization set up to support strategic
programs for the benefit of the Montgomery Township public school
children. The Foundation’s goal is to raise money for the purpose of
improving our children’s educational experience, acquiring supplies
and equipment and providing innovative teaching and learning systems
for our children. Following our first successful endeavor, Cougar
Stadium, we have had extensive conversations with school Principals,
administrators, students and parents to gain an appreciation of
where we can help. We meet on a regular basis to discuss the ideas
and determine how we can fund the programs that will benefit the
most students. Our new projects will enhance programs in science,
language arts, and music and also provide assistance for students
who are academically at-risk.
