FEBRUARY 2017 MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT


February is the sixth month of school and the time when our seniors begin receiving college acceptance notifications.   We’re pleased to report that to date, 21 MPHS students (out of 66 who applied) have been accepted to 40 colleges and universities.  What is quite impressive is that a total of $644,000 in merit scholarships based on student achievement has been offered to them.  We join the Class of 2017 and their families in celebrating each acceptance notification and the other important “next step” decisions our students are making. 

According to an NEA Policy Brief, (2014) community involvement in education correlates with higher academic performance and school improvement, “When schools, parents, families, and communities work together to support learning, students tend to earn higher grades, attend school more regularly, stay in school longer, and enroll in higher level programs. In Midland Park, we are extremely fortunate to have an established, stellar record of community involvement in our schools and district.  Evidence of this involvement is noted countless ways—here are just two of the many events which link district schools and the community:

  • The Midland Park Boosters held its second Chili-Cook-Off fundraiser at the end of January;

  • the MPPEF will host its annual fundraiser, this year’s event is the Black and White Bash featuring the Nerds, on March 4th at Macaluso’s.

These events are just a few of the many fundraising efforts which support district programs and enrich school spirit.  Our volunteer organizations certainly set the standard for others and we are truly grateful.  Please continue to provide them with your support whenever possible

Sincerely,

Marie C. Cirasella

Marie C. Cirasella, Ed.D.
