North Haledon Learning Community Newsletter Volume 3







Dear High Mountain School Students, Parents, Guardians, and Community Members –

Welcome back to the 2017-2018 school year. Each summer I say this - but these halls are way too quiet without the staff and students. I am eager to have all of you back in September and to welcome our incoming fifth graders.

            Our students will continue to thrive in the classrooms and be challenged as critical thinkers and problem solvers as they approach their daily instruction. The teachers will provide rigorous and meaningful instruction aimed at meeting the state and district standards, and meeting the individual needs of the students in the classroom. We remain proud of the enthusiasm and excitement present in the classrooms, and will enhance that with our 1:1 Chromebook initiative.  We are fortunate to provide this opportunity to our students and foster 21st century digital learning. 

           Collaboration is crucial to a productive school year.  A positive school climate starts with our staff and student body.  The students continue to be expected to demonstrate good citizenship and responsibility for their academics and behavior, while the staff remains committed to fostering and encouraging personal growth.  I stand by what I stated last year: Parents, teachers and administrators will support one another with a common goal in mind – what’s best for the students. This needs to be at the forefront of our decision making each and every day.

As the year progresses, please know that I am here to work with you to make this school year as successful and positive as possible. The teachers and I can always be reached at 973-427-1220 or via email to discuss any concerns as they arise. Please also check the school’s website often for updates and announcements.

In October North Haledon Public Schools recognized the Week of Respect. It was an excellent opportunity for students to learn about, reflect on and share their experiences of respect and kindness towards others, themselves and all living things. 

To kick things off, all students signed a Pledge or Respect vowing to show kindness in their words and actions. Take a look at our pledges!

Pledge Wall

Since respect is a quality best displayed through our conduct, to conclude the celebration, students and teachers decorated homeroom doors with students' "actions of respect". Some doors are pictured below. 

Clearly, it was a great job done by all!

We appreciate parents continued assistance as you demonstrate safety when driving your vehicles on school property and in our neighboring streets.

Please keep in mind that students, parents, and staff utilize the parking lot as pedestrians, so it's important to reduce the speed of your vehicle while on the campus of the High Mountain Middle School.  Students, parents, and staff safety must be everone's priority. The traffic flows extremely well in the morning and afternoon when parents utlize the drop-off and pick-up lane. 

Please refrain from utilizing the center lane located in the front of the school, getting out of your vehicles, parking in the front of the building when dropping off or picking up your children. If you must park, please do so in a parking spot. Unattended cars that are parked in the drop-off and pick-up lane hinder the traffic flow.

Thank you for assisting us with keeping the High Mountain Middle School safe for all who attend, work, and visit.
