On Monday, our elementary schools will hold their annual Halloween parades. There will be a minimum day on Wednesday Nov. 2nd and again on Nov. 16th for all schools, for parent-teacher conferences. To sign up for a time slot online, see the email from your child’s school, or reach out to your child’s teacher or principal. On Thursday, the PTO will hold a parent seminar on the topic of student safety and substance abuse prevention. All WSD parents are invited to attend. We are now into the second half of the first marking period of the school year. Initial assessments are complete and WSD teachers are using this data to inform their instruction and move students forward in their learning. Our students have been working hard, learning new content and skills, and developing growth mindsets and a strong work ethic. We look forward to a successful remainder of the marking period.

Emergency Alert System Test

On Sunday evening, October 30, 2022, at 7:00pm, the Wyckoff School District will run a test of the Emergency Alert System. Any parent or staff member that does not receive the test call should alert your school office on Monday so we can update your contact information accordingly. 


Upcoming Parent Seminar

The Wyckoff PTO Coordinating Council will hold a seminar open to all WSD parents on Thursday, November 3rd at 9:15am at Coolidge School. The guest presenter will be former state trooper and current RIH School Safety Specialist Charlie Wolff. Mr. Wolff will speak to PreK- 8th grade parents on the topics of student safety and substance abuse prevention. View the Events section of our website to see more detail.


Math and Literacy Consultants Train Teachers

The Wyckoff School District has engaged math consultant Bill Jackson and literacy consulting firm Gravity Goldberg LLC to provide professional development to WSD elementary and middle school teachers on effective instructional strategies for math and literacy. The District has partnered with these consultants in recent years to build teacher capacity and ensure personalized learning for all students. Mr. Jackson worked with newly hired teachers this week to model delivery of concrete and abstract mathematics concepts. Gravity Goldberg’s firm held a “coaching co-op” this week for instructional coaches and literacy facilitators to assist these professionals in coaching teachers on best practices for language arts and literacy instruction. The co-op seminar was open to WSD coaches as well as instructional coaches from neighboring districts.


Police and Fire Officials Present to WSD Students

This month, in recognition of School Violence Awareness Week and Fire Prevention Week, our local police and fire officials visited our elementary schools to present to students on the topic of safety. A big thank you to the police officers and firefighters who represented their departments and met with students to teach them important information about school safety, fire prevention, and the role of community officials in keeping them safe.

The Wyckoff Chamber of Commerce will host their annual Halloween Safe Trick or Treat event this weekend. Students are invited to wear their costumes and trick or treat at area businesses. The event will be held Saturday, October 29 from 11:00am to 1:30pm in front of Blue Moon Restaurant in Boulder Run.
