JULY-AUGUST 2017 MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT


As in the past, the Midland Park Public School District is a very busy place during the warm summer months and this year is no exception.  The administrative team is proactive in planning for the upcoming school year, plans which include the provision of critical professional development to improve instruction and pedagogy.  Ongoing renovation projects continue to improve district facilities in significant ways, including:

  • New maintenance pole barn

  • New hallway flooring in Godwin

  • New multi-purpose room flooring in Godwin

  • Installation of wall pads in the multi-purpose room at Godwin

  • Security enhancement at Godwin: relocated entrance/main office

  • New flagpole at Highland

  • New bleachers in the Highland gym

  • New stage floor in Memorial Hall at MPHS

  • Relocation of office space equals new/improved  instructional space at MPHS

  • Installation of new tile flooring in the main entrance at MPHS

    (For more information on specific renovation projects and schedules, click on the Work in Progress tab on the district website’s homepage.)

Parents and educators everywhere know that summer days offer ideal opportunities to read and we encourage students to spend some time with a good book!  Our district posts its annual K-12 Summer Reading List on the district website:  www.mpsnj.org   Another great resource for summer reading is provided by the Association for Library Services to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association.  The ALSC provides four grade span-developed list of book titles to keep children engaged in reading throughout the summer: Birth-PK, K-2, 3-5, and 6-8: http://www.ala.org/alsc/publications-resources/book-lists/2017-summer-reading-list  Also, the International Literacy Association publishes its annual Choices Reading List as selected by thousands of children, young adults, teachers, and librarians around the United States.  The lists include recently-published Children’s Choices, Teachers’ Choices, and Young Adult Choices and may be accessed at the ILA’s website: https://www.literacyworldwide.org/get-resources/reading-lists

As always, July and August will pass quickly and we will soon be gearing up for the first day of school in September!  Until then, may you and your family enjoy a safe, healthy, and happy summer!

Sincerely,

Marie C. Cirasella

Marie C. Cirasella, Ed.D.
