Message from the Superintendent

As we move into the month of December, I hope each parent had the opportunity to speak with your child’s teachers at parents’ night and listen to the expectations expressed at open house night.  It is very important that all of us as parents, teachers, supervisors, administrators, and the board of education share the goal that every child succeeds.  By continuing to keep the stream of communication open between everyone involved, we can work toward this goal.  If you did not have the opportunity to attend parent’s night, please feel free to call the school and set up an appointment with the individual teacher.


Additionally, our parent and student portals can be accessed any time to constantly monitor the academic progress of each child.  These portals allow for daily review and, if there are any issues, a dialogue can occur to reconcile any problems.  If you do not have access to the parent portal please contact your child’s guidance counselor to get your user name and password.


Each school has information on the school webpage and the most up to date calendar lists the events at your child’s school.  Also, there is a North Bergen Board of Education Facebook account at and a North Bergen Board of Education Twitter account at .  Please follow us there for information and news concerning our students as well as accomplishments by our teachers.  Many great things are happening in our schools and it is important for you to get to read about these activities.


As we move through December and the end of the calendar year approaches, we reflect on the past year and look forward to a new year.  We all should take an inventory of our accomplishments and review our shortcomings.  We can celebrate and memorialize our achievements while turning our shortcomings into our New Year’s Resolutions. 


I would like to wish all a Happy Holiday season and a Happy New Year.
