Message from the Superintendent

As the first day of school approaches, we know that it will be a momentous occasion for students, parents, teachers and administrators.  Many memories will be created that will live on for years to come.  We, as an education community, will be ready to live up to the expectations that are demanded of us to deliver life-long learning experiences.  Additionally, the momentum must continue beyond the first day and continue throughout the academic year to provide world-class teaching to our students.  When our teams of educators step into our schools, my challenge to them is simple - be great for our students.  The families of North Bergen deserve greatness when it comes to their children. We are fortunate to have a community who believes our students’ futures comes first, and we need to take that investment and turn it into opportunities.  As we enter the new school year, I hope that all of us will embrace my challenge.  Teachers will be engaging, caring, and encouraging to every student who walks into school.  Parents will be involved in their child’s education through communication and use of the parent portal.  Students will work hard through a rigorous curriculum and demonstrate an understanding of the New Jersey Student Learning Standards.  With this type of energy and enthusiasm, I am confident we will have the best school year ever.

Parents please make sure you visit the Parent Portal, the school and district websites, the North Bergen School District Facebook /  Twitter pages, and listen to the automated phone calls for information.

School begins Thursday, September 8, 2016.
