April Message

Spring has finally come and the weather is improving. Our spring sports season is in full gear with the Baseball, Softball, Outdoor Track, Boys Volleyball, and Boys Tennis competing. Please look at the schedule to support our student athletes. Also, we are very happy to announce the creation of one of the first eSports teams in New Jersey. Please look at this link https://www.njtvonline.org/news/video/forming-the-foundation-for-esports-in-nj/. We look forward to many great things to come from our partnership with Helix and Hudson Hills.
 
Additionally, April is National Autism Awareness Month with April 2nd recognized as World Autism Awareness Day.  We encourage everyone to take measures to raise awareness about people with Autism Spectrum Disorder.  Here are some websites for more information:

The third marking period comes to a close during April.  Please review your child(s) progress with his or her(s) academic and behavioral status.  We ask you to communicate with the teachers, guidance counselors, or administrators if there are any issues.  At North Bergen High School, we will start the scheduling process where many new electives have been added over the past four years.  These electives help your children branch out to areas of interest for possible future careers.
 
Finally, we at the North Bergen School District are pleased to announce the rollout of an App for Realtime's Parent Portal. The App is free and available to both Android and iOS-Apple smart phones. The App allows you as a parent/guardian to get push notifications for attendance changes, updates to student grades, assignments and emergency announcements. Please go to this link to get the App and downloading instructions: https://www.northbergen.k12.nj.us/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=1213610&type=d&pREC_ID=1448673
 
As always please follow all of our schools on our website and social media including websites, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube channels.
