Hasbrouck Heights Public Schools
Superintendent’s Report
March 26, 1998

Junior-Senior High School
We are maintaining an ongoing communication with the community. In fact, it has been enhanced by the resurgence of the Principal’s newsletter, "Heights' Happenings." Via this correspondence, we are keeping the general public, parents, and relatives, abreast of the many activities over and above the standard academic undertakings. In addition, we are trying to keep as many accomplishments of our students as possible in front of the public so that they may be aware of our successes.

Regularly scheduled meetings of the Principal’s Advisory Committee, The PTSA Committee, and various student groups have continued to maintain and extend the lines of communication.

Congratulations to Mrs. Sharon Grele of our Foreign Language department. Recently she was the recipient of a $2000 Dodge Teaching Fellowship. The presentation was made by Commissioner of Education, Dr. Leo Klagholz. Mrs. Grele was one of three hundred alternate route teachers to receive this prestigious award. Mrs. Grele has benefited from the mentorship of Mr. Walter Eggmann of our Foreign Language department and both should be equally proud of this award.

Middle Level Students have been involved in many interdisciplinary activities in which 'authentic' learning experiences have been stressed. This month 7th grade students are producing Math story books in which their expression of their math skills depends on their Language Arts skills. These story books will be presented to the lower grade students in the elementary schools.

Euclid School
After placing in the Junior Woman's club district final, Euclid Eagles, John G. and Michael D. in Mr. Dolan's Fifth Grade Class went on to the State Spelling Bee finals. Michael placed fourth runner up at the state level. Congratulations, Michael!

The National PTA Drug, Alcohol, and Tobacco Awareness Week culminated on Friday, March 6th, with the entire student body cheering against drugs. In the presence of our Principal- Mr. Donnelly, Mayor Torre, Police Chief Werner, Sergeant Castiglione, Detective Colanieri, and Superintendent Dr. Richard Stepura, our enthusiastic school spirit sang out at the annual parade and rally.

The rally was only one of the many events that the PTA sponsored this week. The students also were educated and entertained by the Sedacki Puppets, Allan Johnson and Tiger Schulman's Karate School. They were able to participate in a T-shirt and poster contest, a jelly bean counting contest, and each morning there was a raffle for those who wore their drug-free red ribbons.

On Friday, March 6th the Euclid PTA sponsored its second Art Auction. Parents and friends had time to preview the art, presented by Marlin Art, Inc, before the Auction began. The evening included refreshments, door prizes and a raffle. This event was again a success and was enjoyed by all who attended. Thank you to Mrs. Pagano and her committee for sponsoring this wonderful cultural event.
