February Message

 
In February, we celebrate Black History Month and Presidents Day.
 
In order to ensure that we continue to provide our students with a well-rounded education and expose them to many different African Americans who have impacted American history, the district will be celebrating famous African Americans during the month of February. These people include Langston Hughes, Maya Angelou, W.E.B. De Bois, Booker T. Washington, Thurgood Marshall, Clarence Thomas, Bessie Smith, Marian Anderson, BB King, Louis Armstrong, Jackie Robinson, Serena Williams, Kobe Bryant, Barack Obama, Hiram R. Revels, Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice.
 
Additionally, we will celebrate all U.S. presidents.  The focus will be on George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Abraham Lincoln, and Teddy Roosevelt. In addition to discussing those five presidents, teachers will incorporate presidential monuments, estates, and landmarks (virtual tours available on the websites below), the White House, and the role of the Executive Branch. We will also focus on the documents, writings, philosophies, and characteristics associated with each president.  Many document based questions (DBQs), primary sources, and informational text will be used to further develop an understanding of our American history.
 
Our children will be reading stories, reviewing achievements, and completing projects this month for both highlighted activities.
 
Each child received his or her second marking period grades.  Please review your child(s) progress and contact the teacher, guidance counselor, or building administrator if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.  Additionally, please feel free to contact my office with questions.  The best way is through email at gsolter@northbergen.k12.nj.us. 
 
There have been many great accomplishments by our students and faculty during the school year.  These can be seen on our school website or on social media.  Please look at the calendar for events and activities at our schools.  We urge you to become part of our school family.
