Superintendent's Message

FEBRUARY 2016 MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT


According to an NEA Policy Brief, (2014) community involvement in education correlates with higher academic performance and school improvement, “When schools, parents, families, and communities work together to support learning, students tend to earn higher grades, attend school more regularly, stay in school longer, and enroll in higher level programs. Researchers cite parent-family-community involvement as a key to addressing the school dropout crisis and note that strong school-family-community partnerships foster higher educational aspirations and more motivated students, and the evidence holds true for students at both the elementary and secondary level, regardless of the parent’s education, family income, or background.”  In Midland Park, we are extremely fortunate to have an established, stellar record of community involvement and support for schools and district.  Evidence of this involvement is noted countless ways—here are just a few:

 

  • The Midland Park Boosters held its first Chili-Cook-Off fundraiser at the end of January;

  • the MPPEF will host its 10th Anniversary Starlight Gala on March 5th at Macaluso’s;

  • on March 19th, the MPHS Athletic Hall of Fame Dinner & Induction Ceremony will be held at the Brick House. 

     

    These events are just a few of the many school and community fundraising efforts which support district programs and enrich school spirit.  Our many volunteer organizations certainly set the standard for others to follow and we are truly grateful.  Please continue to provide them with your support whenever possible.

     

Sincerely,

Marie C. Cirasella, Ed.D.
