The 2018 – 2019 school year has closed. As we launch into summer break, I would like to reflect on some of our accomplishments.
But first, I want to recognize each of the teachers and administrators for the dedication, talent, energy and care you bring to your work. Together with the parents we are making sure that each child has the opportunity to be successful.
This year we set our sights on some challenging goals in the areas of increasing family engagement, increasing the use of technology to ensure that higher order thinking skills were used to create responses to inquiries, and enhancing teacher effectiveness through Professional Learning Communities. There have been many activities all year long highlighted on our website and/or in social media to demonstrate student and staff successes.
We celebrated the graduation of high school seniors who will be moving on to post secondary institutions, career preparation schools, military service, or employment. Additionally, we celebrated moving on ceremonies from Grade 8 to high school, kindergarten to grade 1, and pre Kindergarten to kindergarten. I thoroughly enjoyed being present to be part of these events.
I would like each student to enjoy the vacation, but spend some time reading books or articles, reviewing math packages, and preparing for next school year.
Please keep aware of upcoming events via our website, social media, Realtime parent portal or the App, and our automated calls.
It is a pleasure to serve the parents, the children and the staff of the North Bergen School District. Happy summer.
