Good News!!The Strategic Planning document that encompasses the Goals and Objectives that several of our community members so kindly and generously gave of their time to be a part of is complete. A link to the 3D Plan document can be found below. As you will see, the Plan contains all of the topics that those present identified as strengths and weakness. What remains to be completed is the development of the action plans to support those goals. These plans cannot be completed until all information is collected and discussed.Several of our “Goals and Objectives” focused on communications. In an effort to enhance this process, I would like to cordially invite all of you to the July 21st Board of Education meeting, which will be held in the Haskell School Gymnasium at 7:00 p.m. At this meeting, representatives from our architectural firm will share with the Board of Education and community preliminary information relative to the feasibility study. Please keep in mind we are just in the research stage. No decisions have been made, nor will be without community input.The administrative team and the Board of Education thank you in advance for your continued support of our schools.Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.~ Henry Ford

Pre-School Registration Packet
The Wanaque Public School District is delighted to announce that we have a few seats still available for the opening of two Integrated Pre-School classes for September 2015. One program will be housed at Haskell School and the other at Wanaque School. The morning session (9:00 - 11:15 a.m.) will be comprised of primarily three-year old youngsters and the afternoon session (12:45 – 3:00 p.m.) will address four-year olds.
The tuition-based program anticipates having limited openings for the 2015-2016 school year. If you are interested in having your child attend this program, please contact us immediately as there are only a few open seats remaining.
A modest tuition of $2,000 will be charged, with a $200 deposit due upon application. To be eligible, a general education student must be three (3) years of age on or before October 1, 2015 and must be toilet trained. When applying for the program, please include a copy of the following information:
· birth certificate
