Last night, the Wyckoff Education Foundation (WEF) held its annual gala at Macaluso’s in Hawthorne. A slew of parents and staff turned out for this Casino Night themed fundraiser to support the Wyckoff School District (WSD). For a glimpse of the resources and technology that WEF has provided to our students and classrooms over the years, check out this 3-minute video created by EMS Technology teacher Mr. DeBlock. A big thank you to the WEF and to all those who generously donated at this event or at any time. Our students and staff appreciate you!

New Jersey Guide to School Board Meetings

The New Jersey School Boards Association recently released a new community resource, A Guide to Board of Education Meetings in New Jersey. The intent of this brochure is to educate residents on the roles and responsibilities of boards of education and superintendents; to provide guidance for members of the public who wish to address matters of concern with their boards during public meetings; and to explain board meeting procedures.

 

EMS Character Award Winner Takes State Record in Swimming

Cole Wilson, EMS seventh grader who was recognized at last month’s school board meeting for outstanding character, took home a host of state titles at the NJ YMCA State Swimming Championships this spring. In addition to eight state championship titles in freestyle, butterfly, medley and relays, Cole set a new state record in the 100 yard butterfly with a time of 56.34, a record that has been in place since 2014. Congratulations to Cole on this outstanding accomplishment.
