Dear Cresskill Community, It is with great pleasure that I announce our appointment of the new MMS principal, Ms. Jacqueline Peguero. I am very excited that she will be joining us on August 1, 2023. She was our top candidate from 63 applicants after completing an exhaustive interview process consisting of three rounds of interviews, multiple performance tasks, and being interviewed by committees consisting of teachers, building leadership, and district administrators. She was unanimously approved this evening by the board of education after attending the meeting and conducting a brief introduction about her values, beliefs, and reasons for coming to Cresskill. We are in the process of setting up "meet and greets" for the Merritt families beginning on August 1st that we will be sending out information on in the upcoming weeks. With Care & Service to Cresskill, Dr. Peter Hughes Superintendent of Schools
