Dear Parents and Guardians:
This September, the district staff greeted approximately 250 students as they arrived at the Woodrow Wilson School. The school district opening was outstanding and our staff should be congratulated for all the hard work that was extended to ensure that our schools were prepared for our students’ return. During the early fall, our students have represented the district in a positive manner as they participate in our fall interscholastic soccer program. We hope you will have the opportunity to attend these games and you will encourage our teams on to victory. Our students take great pride in their individual performances, as well as that of our teams. Nothing pleases them more than having their parents/guardians, administrators, teachers and fellow students supporting their efforts.
As the midpoint of the first marking period approaches, I would like to encourage you to contact your child’s teachers as we want to ensure that we all monitor the progress of your child should you be concerned that your child’s progress is not meeting your expectations for your child’s performance in school. It is extremely important for you to closely monitor your child’s achievement in order to help ensure that his or her first marking period grades are up to the standards/goals that you and your child set for his or her academic achievement. Your involvement in your child’s education will enable the Woodrow Wilson School’s home-school partnership to have a positive impact on our children’s education. As you are aware, it is critical that you remain actively involved in your child’s education.
Another district priority is the safety of our students. During the month of October we will begin to notice that our daylight hours are fewer. Please remind your children to be careful when traveling to and from school. We hope that they will keep the volume of their phones and/or musical devices low enough to enable them to hear their surroundings. In addition, please remind them to cross where crossing guards are located. Especially on Halloween, we urge you to remind your children to exercise good judgment in their travels.
Please know that I am appreciative of the interest that you take in your community’s schools and hope that this school year will be especially rewarding for our children. Finally, I would like you to know how appreciative I am regarding the manner in which I have been welcomed as the new Interim Superintendent of Schools in the Neptune City School District. I will extend every effort to maintain the exceptional programs and experiences offered to your children and look forward toward our collaborative efforts to ensure that our students’ educational, social, cultural, and athletic needs are met as we continue to address the challenges that lie ahead.
Ralph P. Ferrie, Ed.D.
Interim Superintendent of Schools
