Greetings Parents and Guardians of W.O.K. Students:
I would like to take this opportunity to share some important information with you. Many of you know me as the Director of Curriculum and Instruction at the Hillside Board of Education Central Office. However, on Tuesday, June 7th I also assumed the responsibility as Interim Principal at the Walter O. Krumbiegel Middle School for the remainder of the 2015-16 school year replacing Mr. Juan Leonardo.
With 17 years of experience in education as a teacher, vice-principal, principal and central office administrator I am dedicated to ensuring a smooth transition for the remainder of the school year. As we move forward in the closing of the school year, it is my sincere hope that you continue being involved and with your child’s education throughout the summer.
I am excited to inform you that there will be the NJASK Summer Academy and in collaboration with Kean University, the 21st Century Community Learning Center Program for students entering grades 6, 7 and 8.
The NJASK Summer Academy is Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Students will be offered educational support in the areas of Mathematics, Language Arts Literacy and Science as evidenced by class work and standardized test scores (Title 1). The KULA program is Monday through Thursday from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. There will also be field trips on Fridays throughout the course of the program. Both programs commence on Wednesday, July 6th and run through Thursday, July 28th.
In addition, Hillside High School is kicking off “ Free Books and Barbecue” on Saturday, June 18th, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to celebrate the coming of summer with good food, community building and information about summer reading for students in grades K-12. Summer reading books will be provided to Hillside students that attend with a parent/guardian. A proof of residency ID is required.
Let us continue helping our children to remain academically vigilant and serious about learning. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (908)352-7664, extension 4400.
