Back to School Nights

Take this opportunity to visit your child's school and to meet teachers, principals, administrators and Board Members. It's a great way to build that all-important home-school connection.

New Elementary School Report Cards
Report cards support student learning, measure student achievement and provide feedback on specific skill areas of strength and weakness.  We have assessed our reporting system and revised our elementary report cards to better communicate student progress. This past spring, a Report Card Committee reviewed recommendations from administrators, teachers and parents.  Revisions were made and included a return to letter grades in Grades 3, 4 and 5.  Progress indicators have also been refined in Grades K - 5 to more clearly communicate student achievement and progress. Click here to view the new elementary report cards.
Extended Day Program Registration
Wayne Youth Programs is now accepting Extended Day Program Registrations for the 2015-2016 School Year.  The Early Start and Wrap-Up Programs meet each day school is in session in your child’s school.  Click here for additional information and to access the online registration.

Packanack Garden

Packanack's Garden is now in its 6th year!  With the support of our PTO, enthusiastic students, the Packanack Staff, and the Science parents, our edible garden continues to thrive.
 
The '2015 Packanack Garden' update.....
Lettuce, tomatoes and string beans are still producing and continue to be ready for the picking...
The cucumbers are sneaky and are growing outside their box, on to the grass and into the beans.
Corn has been picked and enjoyed but pretty much at the end
AND
The Sunflower Garden (the round bed to the left of the vegetable garden)
 is growing by leaps and bounds and should be quite the scene by the September 3rd.

Thank You to Mrs. Wagner, Mrs. Potosnak and the numerous volunteers who have been keeping a watchful eye on the garden by monitoring the watering and keeping up with the weeds.
