HASBROUCK HEIGHTS PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Superintendent's Report
January 29, 1998
Junior-Senior High School
We are currently in the midst of the midterm exam period.  Every course
is not conducting  an exam during this period, but every teacher is
obliged to turn in a test, project, or some form of assessment over the
previous two weeks.  All of these were reviewed by administration for
appropriate design and rubrics.
Schedule planning in terms of curriculum and course offerings has
commenced.  Our focus is  on expansion of electives, most efficient
loading of classes, and an evaluation of the objectives of courses with
regard to Core Content Standards.
As of January 14, 1998, the Pilot’s Log is officially on line and proud
of our very first web page!  Take a look at our newspaper at:
http://members.tripod.com/~pilotslog.  A sincere and heartfelt thank you
goes to the extraordinary efforts of Adrian B., the web page
editor-in-chief for the Pilot’s Log, who brought this massive project to
fruition.
Mrs. Schneeweiss' three communications classes are actively working on
public service announcements in conjunction with Hackensack University
Medical Center.  The thirty second announcements are written, taped and
edited solely by students.  A field trip to Hackensack Hospital resulted
in the beginning of a documentary on infectious diseases including an
interview with Dr. Jeffrey Boscamp head of Pediatric Infectious
Diseases.
Tradition especially means something to the Italian Club of Hasbrouck
Heights High School.  For 27 years they have taken part in one of the
most celebrated Christmas traditions, caroling.  Students from the 9-12
grades, under the leadership of Mrs. Washburn, gather together singing
Italian Christmas carols to the local grammar schools.  This activity
was almost replaced this year, but the true spirit of tradition helped
the students fight to get it back.
Junior Joe S. was selected by the Bergen County Coaches   Association 
to the First Team All County Football Team as a linebacker,
later in the month Joe also received recognition as a First Team Group I
All State Linebacker.
Senior student Rob C. performed in the Bergen County Regional Choir
at Bergenfield High School on Sunday, January 18.  Participation in this
select group is a result of a highly competitive audition.
Seniors are receiving acceptances from many competitive colleges and
universities.  They include:  Brown University, The College of New
Jersey, University of Connecticut, Fordham University, Rutgers
University,  Penn State University, University of Massachusetts, Seton
Hall University, University of Rhode Island, Montclair State University,
Stevens Institute of Technology, University of Miami, New York
University, Syracuse University, Villanova University, Drexel
University, and Drew University.
Christine L., a junior, and Christopher D.O., a sophomore, have
been selected to represent the High School at the New Jersey State Elks
Association 4th Annual Youth Peer Leadership Conference at the Hyatt
Regency in New Brunswick on January 23-25, 1998.

Euclid School
Mrs. Washburn along with students from the High School Italian Club,
visited Euclid School on Thursday, December 18th.  Staff and students
enjoyed a variety of holiday songs sung in Italian.  Thank you to Mrs.
Washburn and her students for this lively and much appreciated program.
The Hasbrouck Heights Junior Woman's Club hosted a town-wide spelling
bee in the Kiefer Auditorium of the Hasbrouck Heights Jr./Sr. High
School on Friday, January 16th.  Twenty fourth and fifth grade students
from Euclid School participated, two of which were finalists.  First
place winner was John G., a fifth grade student in Mr. Dolan's
class.  Michael D., also in Mr. Dolan's class, was a runner up.
These children will compete in the District Spelling Bee in February.

Lincoln School
Mr. Hoskin and the Lincoln School Jump Rope for Heart Demonstration Team
will travel to the Metuchen and Lodi School Districts and perform their
dynamic jump rope routine on Friday, January 30.
Congratulations to Gary M. who became a finalist in the Junior
Women's Club annual Spelling Bee held at the Jr.-Sr. High School on
January 16, 1998. Gary will now compete in the next level of competition
in Oradell on February 27, 1998.
Several meetings have been held by the PTA Drug Free Committee with
representatives from both Lincoln and Euclid Schools.  The purpose of
