Dear Parents, Guardians, and Community Members,
Spring has arrived, and everyone has returned from their restful spring break ready to start planning for upcoming Graduations and Moving-up ceremonies. From our students in high school programs to our kindergarteners at BELA, it will be a time to look forward to new adventures and experiences even as there is sadness in saying good-bye to old friends. Whether preparing for ceremonies or planning special events such as Awards ceremonies, our schools are buzzing with activity. I look forward to attending as many of these ceremonies as I possibly can to celebrate with graduating students and their families and to wish them the best of luck in all their future endeavors.
Although it is only April, we are looking ahead to another busy summer at Special Services. Students attending Extended Year Programs will have opportunities to engage in academic and technical education programs combined with hands-on learning projects and educational field trips. Our CAPE Center will again host the ABA Summer Institute Workshop Series in July for education professionals throughout Bergen County and the surrounding area.
Our district strives to provide a supportive and nurturing environment for all students and familie,s as well as a stimulating and encouraging educational atmosphere that enables students to reach their highest potential. As this year comes to an end, let us celebrate this unique community of families, students, and our school faculty and staff members.
Howard Lerner, Ed.D.
