School will be closed for Spring Recess

reopening Monday, April 28th.


In an effort to enhance the communications between home and school, I will be sending out quarterly electronic newsletters. This is the Spring Newsletter.  You should have also received a copy via email address provided in your child's contact info. If you didn't receive a copy, please let Dr. Cardiello's office know so that we may correct the problem.

Thank you once again for being our partner in educating your children.

Ms. Donna L. Cardiello
Superintendent of Schools

Students at Wanaque School are making a BIG change
by collecting SMALL change.

During two weeks in February, Wanaque Elementary School raised  $890.28 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of New Jersey as part of its Pennies for Patients Campaign.   Students were asked to fill individual collection boxes with spare change to help raise money for kids with blood cancer.  Students could also purchase a paper penny for $1 and be added to the Wall of Hope.  The Pennies for Patients Campaign was run by the school’s National Junior Honor Society.

(Pictured are members of the National Junior Honor Society holding the Pennies for Patients collection boxes in front of the school’s “Wall of Hope”.)
