Local residents interested in enrolling their 3- or 4-year-olds Washington Township Public Schools’ tuition-free, five-day integrated preschool program need to register for the upcoming lottery by Jan. 31.

The lottery is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 7, and will be streamed on the district’s YouTube channel live at 5:30 p.m.

Admission slots will be made available in the fall to 72 preschool 3-year-old students and 32 preschool 4-year-old students into the program at GTECC, and 13 preschool 3-year-old-students and 13 preschool 4-year-old students at Learn With Me Daycare. The program in both locations will follow the same curriculum, allowing typically developing children and children with disabilities to learn together in the same environment.

During the lottery preregistration process, families will be asked to rank their choice of venue.

The full-day program, funded by a Preschool Education Aid grant from the state Department of Education’s Division of Early Childhood Education, will run weekdays from 8:45 a.m. to 2:55 p.m. during the district’s school calendar. The preschool play-based program is structured to meet the social, emotional, physical, communication and cognitive needs of the students by teaching developmentally appropriate skill areas that are embedded throughout the curriculum. The PEA does not apply to preschool children with disabilities, as their programming is supported through state aid, including funding through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.

Parents should submit their child’s information immediately via the district’s Registration Page. The District also will compile a waitlist of students in the event of cancellations by the initial lottery winners and/or the receipt of further grant funds. Deadline is 8 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 31.

Once preregistered, families will receive details via email about the selection process for the Feb. 7 lottery drawing. Only families of multiples — twins or triplets who share the same birthdate— who successfully secure one lottery spot will have the option to enroll all of their children into the program.

Students enrolling in the program must be the designated age of the class on or before Oct. 1, 2023; must be residents of Washington Township; and must have up-to-date immunizations

Before- and after-school care will be available at both locations. Information and pricing will be forthcoming. Transportation cannot be guaranteed at this time. Click here for a video of frequently asked questions on the preschool program.

Shane Tait’s goals when he joined the Washington Township wrestling program as a sophomore were simple and had nothing to do with his success in the sport.

At 360 pounds, Tait needed a lifestyle change and thought wrestling was just the sport to give it to him.

Two years later, Tait is down nearly 100 pounds and is now an important member of the starting lineup for a 13-1 team which is ranked No. 16 in the state. He now easily makes the 285-pound weight class that took him two years to reach.

“I was 360, I needed to change my life and I didn’t want to die at a young age or have health problems,” said Tait after the Minutemen’s 35-27 win over Paulsboro Friday. “I thought maybe if I wrestle, it will make me mature and get me into shape. The first year I wasn’t really trying, and I had a hard time (losing weight) because of the COVID year, so I lost about 30 pounds.

“Last season I started out at 335 and ended up 265. I still feel like there’s more I can do to make myself look better, but I’m really happy with how far I came.”

Tait wasn’t originally sure the commitment would last more than a week but something funny happened on the way to using the sport to become a healthier version of himself.

“It turned into me really liking it, and here I am now,” said Tait, who lifts and wrestles at the Patriot Wrestling Club in the offseason.

Tait joined the starting lineup a week ago when John Stone, the starter for the last year-and-a-half and a state qualifier in 2022, graduated and left to join the Rutgers football team. Tait won all three matches last Saturday after taking over the starting spot and on Friday night delivered a key 6-3 decision at heavyweight that snapped a 24-all tie and propelled the Minutemen to the victory over Paulsboro.

“Shane came to the program, he was almost 400 pounds and he put a lot of time in and made a lot of effort to make himself healthy,” said Washington Township coach Eric Ring. “It started off at the beginning, we’re going to help this kid, quote, unquote, save his life, that type of deal. Slowly and surely, he kept working hard and getting better, and I think just recently he realized I might be able to be all right at this.

“That first quad he got into some spots and he was exhausted, but he kept pushing and we said, man, we didn’t know he had this in him and I don’t think he did either. He said after those matches he was going to pick it up and start running harder on the track, so it’s great to see him grow.”

While excited to be in the lineup, Tait said he was in no hurry for his fellow senior to depart for Rutgers so he could move into the spot.

“I was actually really nervous, I’ve never been a varsity starter in a sport in my life,” said Tait, who also played one year of football. “Originally (Stone) wasn’t going to wrestle at all. It turns out he wanted to wrestle until the beginning of January, but that gave me more time to get ready until the spot was mine after I only wrestled four times all last year.

“I can’t slack off now. I have to win more matches like I did tonight.”

Ring said Stone face-timed the team when they were on the bus after they swept their quad meet last Saturday - the day the all-state lineman moved into Rutgers - and his replacement went 3-0.

“The Stone dynamic was great, they were great with each other, they helped each other a lot and Stone helped Shane get ready for when it was go-time,” said Ring. “It was a unique situation, and it was great watching those two together.”

Tait did wrestle at the prestigious Beast of the East to start the season because Stone was on his recruiting visit and won his opening match before losing the next two. He is 5-3 overall this season.

“Those kids (at the Beast) are the best, I didn’t even think I’d win one,” said Tait.

Asked if he set any goals for himself now that he’s a varsity starter, Tait said he didn’t.

“I’ve already achieved my goals,” said Tait. “I just want to get better from here.”

Jersey Mike’s Subs has opened their second Washington Township location, the newest one on Egg Harbor Rd in the Sewell section of town.

Specifically they are located in the Washington Center Shoppes complex (Acme) on Egg Harbor Rd.

Within the Egg Harbor shopping center, Jersey Mike’s is located near the center between Rudi’s Formal Wear and H&R block.

Their first location in town is on the Black Horse Pike, where Tuckahoe Rd splits off (near Walmart and House of Brews)

Jersey Mike’s Fresh and Delicious Subs and Cheesesteaks

If you were unfamiliar with the sub shop, they offer fresh hoagies, cheese steaks and more on fresh rolls that are baked within the store.

While many associate them with their delicious hoagies, online cheesesteak aficionados regularly give high marks to the Jersey Mike’s cheesesteaks, which many would not expect from a multi-unit chain!

The offer all the classic Philly style hoagies and cheesesteaks but also feature unique variations such as the Chipotle Cheesesteak featuring a chipotle mayo, or the Big Kahuna which adds onions, peppers, mushrooms and jalapenos to the classic cheesesteak.

There Regular and Mini sandwiches are priced under $10 and they also offer a Giant size at additional cost.

42Freeway first brought the news of this then planned location to readers back in October. This new location is owned by the same family who own the Black Horse Pike location, and last fall I stopped in on the Pike to talk to them about their plans.

They are open seven days a week 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM and they do accept online/mobile orders.

Jersey Mike’s Sewell Washington Township

I visited the new Sewell location this Wednesday, which was their opening day.

They had plenty of staff on hand who were getting their final “real-world” training session.

I also had a chance to meet and chat with some of the management and ownership of the Washington Township locations, who were all on hand for the store’s first days.

The two “Township” locations are both owned by the DiOrio family, and in my visit I met Jimmy Jr and his father. Well really, the entire family is part of the Jersey Mike’s Washington Township business.

Jimmy Jr works in the stores, and has Washington Township High graduate Jon Smith as part of his management team. Tom is the General Manager at the Egg Harbor location.

The new store is bright and modern and carries a beach theme, which really showcases the roots of the first location which was in the beach town of Point Pleasant in North Jersey.

The restaurant franchise has come a long way since those days in 1968, as they now have over 2400 locations in the United states. new

The Egg Harbor Rd walls features a nice mural proudly showing its roots in Point Pleasant, and a variety of beach wall photo hangings presented as if they were beach chairs. Simply it gives a nice “beachy” theme.

Comfortable tables are available in both regular seating height and high top. The floor is a light wood grain which adds to the brighter and friendly atmosphere.

The ordering counter and sandwich prep area is to the right, offering an open kitchen where you can give guidance on how you want your sandwich topped, such as lettuce, tomato, onions, and more.

I ordered an Italian sub with the very traditional lettuce, tomato, onion oil, and vinegar, and also added the spicy hoagie spread which Jon tells me is an original Jersey Mike’s recipe.

As mentioned they bake their own rolls in the store, and coupled with the fresh deli lunch meat and vegetable toppings, this was as freshly hoagie experience that you could expect.

And I really do love the spicy hoagie spread. It’s enough to make me choose Jersey Mike’s over other hoagie shops that don’t offer something similar!

In my prior visits to other locations I’ve tried their cheese steaks, and I agree they are also a very good sandwich.

While some may comment “why does the town need two Jersey Mike’s?”… I would counter that the locations are very different, and in fact I know that I will be visiting the Egg Harbor location significantly more then Black Horse Pike just because of the proximity to my home.
