Washington School Turns 100
The Washington School Parent-Teacher Organization hosted a Centennial Gala last week to celebrate 100 years for the current Washington School building in Wyckoff. Nearly 200 attendees including teachers, parents and alumni enjoyed the celebration at the Bottagra. Happy 100th birthday, Washington School!
Spotlight on Discovery Program
Students in the Wyckoff Discovery Program have been busy with creative projects at our elementary schools. Wyckoff Discovery, taught by Mrs. Weissman, is the gifted education program for eligible students in grades three through five. Third graders have been researching the diverse cultures of Australia and New Zealand, fourth graders crafted parodies of Lewis Carroll’s famous poem “Jabberwocky”, and fifth graders are developing futuristic settings for science fiction films. To read more about their projects, check out the latest online issue of the Discovery Newsletter.
EMS Club Holds Clean Up Day
The National Junior Honor Society Club at Eisenhower Middle School engaged in a recent community improvement project they termed “Bulldog Grooming.” As part of their commitment to public service, and to increase pride in our school, students in this high achievement club used a portion of their meeting time this week to give back by cleaning up litter around the school.
