Superintendent's Message

 
2018 

 

  JANUARY 2018 MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT


Get Educated  In December, Governor Chris Christie announced the NJDOE has issued opioid curriculum resources, developed in collaboration with state and local agencies and community stakeholders, "We continue to make key investments in prevention efforts in order to help save innocent young lives from the disease of addiction before it starts," said the Governor, "It is a top priority to ensure our children learn about the consequences of addiction, and make crucial supports available to those in need of treatment."  The Education Commissioner convened a committee comprised of NJDOE and school personnel, parents, law enforcement, county and state agencies, professional organizations, and mental health/behavioral experts who collaborated to identify evidence-based opioid curriculum resources, programs, and practices to support the instruction of the K-12 New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS) for Comprehensive Health and Physical Education.   

Peace Symbol 
The New Year brings the promise of new hope for a peaceful world and the words of Eleanor Roosevelt seem especially poignant, “It isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it.”  Our students continue their efforts to positively and peacefully impact the global collective via efforts to promote citizenship and good will through a variety of school-based activities, and we’re very proud of their important work in this regard.  As we turn the calendar page to welcome January, we wistfully realize that our seniors will soon graduate as MPHS’s Class of 2018.  Our students have much to be proud of and it’s difficult to believe we will be bidding them farewell in less than six months.  We’re looking forward to the upcoming months, sure to be filled with exciting challenges and great expectations!

On behalf of all in our district, please accept my best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year.

Sincerely,

Marie C. Cirasella

Marie C. Cirasella, Ed.D.
