School Board Meeting
Report Cards Issued
It is hard to believe that we have reached December already, and are wrapping up our first marking period in the Wyckoff schools. As the cold weather and holiday celebrations begin, the WSD faculty and staff continue to work enthusiastically to build our students’ capacity to learn and achieve to their fullest potential. Be sure to check out the Model UN segment below which highlights the awards our middle schoolers earned at the recent JMUN conference. We are proud of the winners and all students who participated.

Sicomac Holds Schoolwide “Hallway Read”
Back by popular demand, Sicomac School held a schoolwide “Hallway Read” last month, where every student and staff member in the school “dropped everything” to read a book of their choice for 15 minutes in the hall. School media specialist Mrs. Cordello organized this initiative during Read Across America Week last spring, and it was deemed a favorite activity for students and staff.
EMS Students Earn Awards at Junior Model UN Conference
Six Eisenhower Middle School students took home awards from the Junior Academy Model United Nations (JMUN) Conference held in November. Model United Nations is a simulation of the UN General Assembly where students step into the shoes of ambassadors from UN member states to debate current issues on the organization’s agenda. The Model UN Club at EMS is run under teacher advisors Mrs. McMillan, Mrs. Moolji, and Ms. Harrichand To view a list of this year’s award winners from EMS, visit the school’s website here.
