Superintendent M. A. Wanko, Ph.D.

On behalf of the Haledon Public School Board of Education, I welcome everyone back to what should prove to be an exciting and historic time of our existence. For the past year we have been working on refining policies and procedures. This has given us the opportunity to imagine, build, and explore what we want for our students over the next several years. An outgrowth of that process was our adaption of the STEM program and the reconfiguration of the elementary and middle school segments of our school. I congratulate our staff for all their hard work to make these accomplishments a reality.

I congratulate our staff for all their hard work to make these accomplishments a reality. 

Most notability, I am pleased to announce that last school year the Haledon Public School District received the designation of "High Performing" on the New Jersey Quality Single Accountability Continuum (QSAC).  As you know, QSAC focuses on monitoring and evaluating school districts in five key components that, based on research, have been identified to be key factors in effective school districts.  They are:  Instruction and Program, Fiscal Management, Governance, Personnel, and Operations.  Again, my congratulations to the staff and students for this accomplishment.  Additionally, a cadre of students charted the National Junior Honor Music Society.  We are excited about the opportunity this provides our students.

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 their 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 realities.

It has been my privilege to have served the Haledon community as your educational leader for the past year.  One of the Board of Education’s goals is to provide communication that is timely, responsive, and clear in order to increase the community’s understanding of our programs, activities, and initiatives. One venue to communicate with the public-at-large are updates on our newly designed and user-friendly website.  I encourage you to view this new site and contact the administrative team with any questions or suggestions.

As I mentioned in my first posting a year ago, striving for excellence has been, and will continue to be, our goal. As your educational leader, I will work hard to develop a solid base upon which our students will continue to grow and improve throughout their lives.

Sincerely,


Michael A. Wanko, Ph.D.

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!

 

Sincerely,

Rob Parkes
