Building a Better World, One Student at a Time

Superintendent’s Message – March 2017 
 

Happy Spring!  The school year is flying by and I know we are all looking forward to warmer weather.  In an effort to keep focused and close the school year out strong, I want to recognize how much we, as a district, have accomplished and what we would  like to achieve.  Students at all levels perform better academically, maintain more positive attitudes, and have higher aspirations when parents are informed and are actively involved in the education process.  As you know, we are preparing for our third year of PARCC testing and we are committed to providing accurate information to parents and families in our community.  Starting with the Class of 2021, all NJ students will have to pass the PARCC tests to graduate from high school.  By taking the test now, in grades 3-6, our students will gain confidence and necessary preparation for this graduation requirement.  When a student does not participate in the annual state test, we all lose out on valuable information.  We are committed to student achievement, and the PARCC test raises the bar for our students to ensure they are on the path to success.  I am confident that with the quality instruction delivered by our dedicated educators, and your support, our students can meet and exceed these expectations.  I encourage you to reach out to your child’s teacher or building principal with any questions you may have about the PARCC test or your child’s progress.

 

Lastly and as always, please visit our website for upcoming events happening in our schools.   

 
Sincerely,
 
George J. Chidiac
Superintendent

NJ's 3rd Congressional District Reading Challenge
 
The deadline for this Reading Challenge is March 17, 2017. It was Congressman MacArthur’s way to encourage students in New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District to read in their free time.  This reading challenge is open to all students in grades K-6th and can be found through his website at: https://macarthur.house.gov/about/district-reading-challenge.  Once completed the student will receive a letter and Congressional Certificate from Congressman MacArthur. 
For safety purposes, we encourage parents to not pick up their child(ren) a half hour before dismissal unless it is for an emergency only.  We encourage you to utilize our bus transportation.
