HASBROUCK HEIGHTS PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Superintendent's Report
February 26, 1998


Junior-Senior High School
Highlighting the past several weeks has been the outreach of the school
to the parents of fifth graders and to those of eighth graders preparing
them for their next phase of education at the middle level and high
school.  A parent orientation meeting was held on February 24th and
subsequent small group parent meetings are being held in the mornings
during February and March for both these groups.  The Guidance
Department has done an outstanding job in providing these parents with
the necessary information to make accurate programming choices for their
sons and daughters.
The 1998 yearbook staff and Mrs. Meyer have completed their work in
creating the 1998 Coronian and are looking forward to seeing all their
effort put into its final form when it is delivered later in the year.
As a reflection of her many contributions to the High School, Mrs.
Hicswa was nominated to Who's Who Among American Teachers.
A special program this month was the Jump Rope and Hoops for Heart in
the students' physical education program.  All sixth grade and seventh
grade students learned the value of aerobic exercise as they help raise
funds for the American Heart Association.
Another special event was the first "Academic Bowl" conducted by the
Middle Level Renaissance Club which is advised by Mrs. Wallace.  On
February 12th, 5 students from Wood-Ridge and 10 students from Moonachie
met with 5 students from Heights to compete in a Jeopardy type meet.
Counselors will be conducting daily group meeting with parents and
students in Grades 6 and 8.  Explanation of programs, scheduling for the
1998/1999 school year and tours for incoming sixth graders and their
parents will be taking place.


Euclid School - Lincoln School
On Friday, February 6th, fifth graders from Euclid School were
privileged to experience a presentation about the Civil War, from Mr.
Roland Barral, a Civil War expert.   With the help of his son
Christopher, a second grader at Euclid School, Mr. Barral recreated the
Civil War Soldier's experience for our students and gave them a session
in history that will stay with them forever. The students truly enjoyed
this special presentation.
The Euclid School PTA held its second Book Fair on February 5th through
the 9th.  Bonus Scholastic books were also distributed to each homeroom
teacher as well as the library.
Congratulations to Melissa W. of Lincoln School who was a county
winner for the PTA "Reflections" contest.   Her entry will now go on to
the state level.
On Thursday, February 12, staff and students recognized the life and
accomplishments of our nation's 16th President and our school's
namesake...............Abraham Lincoln.
The fourth grades of Euclid School and Lincoln School visited Teterboro
Airport on February 10th.  A morning of math and social studies
activities awaited them with the cooperation of our PTA.  The highlight
of the morning was meeting former Knicks star, Willis Reed who spoke to
the students on careers and achievement possibilities.  Following this,
groups of students rotated from activity station to station.  A tour of
the Aviation Museum ended the trip.
