Woodrow Wilson School receives a donation of children’s books that were collected by students from the Sewanhaka Central High School District located in Floral Park, New York. The high school students conducted this effort as a service project. Thank you - Sewanhaka!!
As another year progresses, the first two months of school in the Neptune City School District have been extremely busy and productive. The Woodrow Wilson School teaching staff has continued to work diligently to provide our students with an exceptional instructional program and the support staff has been extending the effort to meet the needs of our entire educational community. Our students have remained active through their participation within their educational programs and many have extended their involvement to interscholastic athletics and a wide range of co-curricular activities.
Just a reminder, the first marking period has come to an end and you will be receiving your child’s report card on November 5th. Parent/Guardian teacher conferences are scheduled for November 4th and 5th. This is an excellent opportunity for you to meet with your child’s teacher to review his/her progress during the first quarter of the school year. There are no classes for students on November 6th as this is a professional development day for staff. School is also not in session on November 7th and 8th as the New Jersey Education Association’s conference is scheduled for those two days. Finally, Thanksgiving recess is from November 28th through December 1st. A reminder, there is a half-day session scheduled for November 27th.
As we continue our work to effectively meet the educational needs of our students, we are continuing to anticipate many significant challenges. The economic issues that we are facing will present significant obstacles as we begin to plan and develop the 2020-21 school year budget. The tax cap legislation will continue to provide for significant restrictions regarding District revenue and will have a major impact on expenditures. As a result, the interim District Business Administration is continuing to carefully review all programs and expenditures in preparation for the upcoming budgetary process. As new information is available, periodic updates will be provided within future correspondences.
I want to continue to emphasize that the Neptune City School District has been proud of the fact that an exceptional educational program has been offered and delivered to its children over the years, in the most cost effective manner possible. We will continue to extend our efforts toward maintaining this excellent tradition.
In closing, I hope that each of you and your families have a wonderful and enjoyable Thanksgiving season and please accept my sincere appreciation for your ongoing support during the time that I have served as the District’s Interim Chief School Administrator.
Ralph P. Ferrie d, E.D.
Superintendent of Schools
