     Dear Parents and Guardians:

         All of our students are adjusting back into the school routines well. We hope the adjustment on the home front is going equally as well.  I would like to take the time to thank all of the parents, staff, and the East Rutherford Police Department for all of your help to improve the drop off process in the morning.  A special thanks to Officer Lucas.  As a reminder, ensure to follow drop off and pickup guidelines, arrive before 8:30 A.M., and utilize both Wall Street and New Street designated areas for drop off only.

           As I have communicated at Back to School Night, McKenzie School is excited to continue some past initiatives in addition to some new ones this year. 

    • Celebration of Red Ribbon Week and School Spirit Week
    • Character Education quotes read by 4th grade students during morning announcements
    • McKenzie students celebrated October as the “Month of Respect”
    • Stomp Out Bullying and Making Healthy Choices Assembly on October 8th (Thank you ER Municipal Alliance)
    • Continuation of Wildcat of the Month (highlighting well rounded students and exemplary behavior)
    • Continuation of the Golden Ticket Program (highlights good behavior)
    • McKenzie School Honors Local Veterans at our annual Veterans Day Assembly
    • Continuation of our class S.T.E.A.M. trips
    • Brain Power Lessons
    • Sanford Harmony Social Emotional Lessons
    • Buddy Bench
    • Respect Wall

         In a time of appreciation, I thank you for sharing your child with us every day at McKenzie School.  I wish you and your family a happy and healthy 2020.
