Superintendent M. A. Wanko, Ph.D.

Congratulations to our 8th graders and best wishes as they embark on the next phase of their lives. The Class of 2019 epitomizes what Haledon Public School is all about. They have demonstrated scholarship and maturity beyond their age and have provided positive role models for the rest of the school. I have great expectations that our younger students will follow in the Class of 2019’s footsteps and continue to make our school even greater.

Haledon Public School can boast some of the best students in the state. However, I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the dedication, caring, and expertise of our remarkable staff. Every day they strive to provide the best educational services to the students entrusted to our care. Teachers, support staff, and our school board are all committed to making Haledon Public School the best it can be. This commitment, coupled with the support of parents/guardians and the community-at-large, help to make our students’ dreams become reality.

Over the summer months I encourage our students to read and write every day. Additionally, use mathematics and engage in outdoor physical activity. I expect everyone to return in September fully ready to become engaged in the teaching and learning process.

It has been my privilege to have served the Haledon community as your educational leader for the past year. And, I am grateful for a school board who both supports and demands the very best for our students.

I wish everyone a healthy, safe, and relaxing summer vacation. Remember, the central and school offices are open year round, so you can reach out for information at any time. Enjoy the summer months with your families and be ready to return to the Haledon family on Wednesday, September 2, 2015.

Principal Mr. Robert Parkes

 July 2015

Hello Haledon School family,

Being the principal here at Haledon Public School has been an honor and a privilege. I thank the entire staff for their dedication and passion to help our scholars. There is nothing more important than the education of our scholars. The Haledon School community has welcomed me and I am very grateful.

Please make sure that our scholars are reading and practicing math daily. It is crucial to continue to learn over the summer. The goal that I have for each of our scholars is that they will receive a scholarship to the university of their choice. This requires the scholars to learn daily and develop the habits they will need to be successful. Our scholars must understand that the word FAIL stands for First Attempt In Learning. With the continued support and partnership from home and school, our scholars will change the world and become productive citizens.

For the 2015-2016 school year, we will only have indoor arrival and dismissal. The procedures will stay the same as they were this past year. This was done to keep our scholars and staff safer by being in the school building as opposed to outside. I know as a parent that I would feel much better about dropping my sons off and knowing they are inside the school.

Enjoy your summer with family and friends!



Rob Parkes
