Please see the memo to parents from Ms. Susan Smahl, Director of Special Services and District Anti-Bullying Coordinator.
Parents and guardians of children enrolled in the Secaucus Schools are urged to take the School Climate Survey, which will give us valuable information on how our programs are working. No personal information will be collected and there is no way to link any data to your children. The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete.
We request that you complete a survey for each school your child or children attend by 6/6/16.

Mrs. Celebrano's third grade class enjoyed participating in the The Red Nose Day Campaign to raise awareness of childhood poverty.
During her 20 years at Huber St. School, she has touched the students at Huber St. School with her love and enthusiasm for reading, as well as her love of children.
Mrs. Kalogera, we will never forget you and wish you the happiest and healthiest of retirements.
Not goodbye, but so long for now.

Mrs. Leppin's 2nd Grade class went on an Adjective Scavenger Hunt today at Huber Street School.
Our 6th grade students, along with Clarendon School, attended the Environmental Weekend to Camp Wapalanne along with Mrs. Leppin. Throughout the weekend, students participated in classes and activities that taught them about the importance of responsibility, inner-strength, friendship and most of the all the conservation of our environment.
Many of you have requested teachers to post their supply list for 2016-2017 school year. So, to limit the confusion, we will be posting the lists on the opening page of the Huber St. School website.

On May 4th, students participated in Huber Street's version of Shark Tank and made their presentations to a panel of judges who are business owners here in Secaucus.
The Sharks included Virginia Cory of Cory First Choice, Harold Bauer, Royce Emporium Leather, Rich Saltarelli, Chelsea Financial Services, Robert Merlo, Allstate Insurance and Don Evanson, Secaucus Spectator. Also, in attendance were special guests Mr. Kenneth Knops, Interim Superintendent and Mrs. Linda Wilhelm, Huber St. School principal.
Special thanks to our guests and Sharks for participating. Mrs. Hernandez and Mr. Bonin would also like to commend their 6th grade students for a "job well done".
The Third Grade students in Mrs. Critelli’s class recently participated in “The National Schools Project” poetry contest. Their poems were reviewed by teachers/educators and selected based on creativity, sensory/figurative images, structure, and poetic techniques. The entire class’s poems were selected and will be showcased in ‘The Young American Poetry Digest”. Congratulations to all of our future “poets”!
Alexandria Feil, a 6th grade student in Mrs. Hernandez’s Language Arts class, received honorable mention in the Law Day 2016 Writing Contest. The contest explores the procedural protections afforded to all of us by the U.S. Constitution, how these rights are safeguarded by the courts, and why the preservation of these principles is essential to our liberty. Alexandria’s poem, Justice Is, highly exemplified the criteria of the contest and was eloquently written. Congratulations Alex!
A picture of Alexandria with her poem is attached.

According to the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act of 2011, all school districts must annually engage in a self assessment to gage performance in preventative and responsive measures to incidents of Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying (HIB).

The official document is attached here.
For more information regarding the NJDoE's responses to HIB, please see a November 24, 2015 memo from Assistant Commissioner Susan Martz and an FAQ the NJDOE has developed.
