Hasbrouck Heights Public Schools
Superintendent's Report
April 20, 2000


Junior-Senior High School

In addition, our communications efforts continue to be supported and enhanced by our publication, "Heights' Happenings", and our regular home mailings.

A number of seniors continue to challenge themselves , as they are in the final stages of the process required to prepare for Advanced Placement exams.

Practice AP tests have been given to all 84 high school students currently enrolled in AP courses: English Literature, French Language, Spanish Language, Calculus AB, Physics B, Physics C, Statistics, and United States History.

THE FUTURE IS NOW! Using the grammar they learned, the students in Miss Kimmel's French III class will describe the uses of a robot they created for the next century.

The mathematics teachers are continuing their quest of updated textbooks which address the Core Curriculum Standards while at the same time providing the necessary practice students need.

As advisor for the Junior Class, Mrs. Hicswa has again done a superb job of organizing the Junior Semi-Formal. 148 students attended the highly successful and enjoyable evening. (Also in attendance Mr. & Mrs. Fitzgibbons, Mr. & Mrs. O'Hare, my wife and I and several teachers.)
