JULY-AUGUST 2016 MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT


Midland Park schools remain busy buildings during the summer months and this year is no exception!  Administrators continue proactive planning for the upcoming school year, especially with regard to the expanded Chromebook student technology resource program and the transition to the Next Generation Science Standards.  Exciting facility renovation projects are  ongoing, including:

 

  • MPHS Media Center and Memorial Hall;
  • New heating unit ventilators at Godwin and MPHS;
  • New playgrounds at Godwin and Highland;
  • Rest room upgrades at all schools.

(For more information on specific projects and schedules, click on the Work in Progress tab on the district website’s homepage.) 

 

Parents and educators everywhere know that summer days offer ideal opportunities to read and we encourage students to spend some time with a good book!  Our district posts its annual K-12 Summer Reading List on the district website:  www.mpsnj.org 

 

Another great resource for summer reading is provided by the International Literacy Association which publishes its annual Choices Reading List as selected by thousands of children, young adults, teachers, and librarians around the United States.  The lists include recently-published Children’s Choices, Teachers’ Choices, and Young Adult Choices and may be accessed at the ILA’s website: https://www.literacyworldwide.org/get-resources/reading-lists

 

As always, July and August are sure to zoom by and we will soon be back together again in September.  Until then, may you and your families enjoy a safe, healthy, and happy summer! 

 

Sincerely,

Marie C. Cirasella
 

Marie C. Cirasella, Ed.D.
