Dear Cresskill Families,
I am formally kicking off my virtual coffees for the upcoming school year, a way that I use to remain accessible to parents. This is an informal time to learn about our schools and get to know about the initiatives we are undertaking.
Our first coffee is tomorrow evening from 7-8 PM, where I will be introducing our new elementary principal, Ms. Peguero, and discussing some of the elementary goals for the upcoming school year. All elementary parents are welcome to attend. Below are the links.
Also, please mark your calendar for August 29th, when I will be hosting my next coffee to discuss 2023-2024 School District Goals for the year.
Dr. Hughes, Your Superintendent of Schools

Congratulations to all of our students from EHB and MMS that are moving up and entering the middle school. We are so proud of your work and who you are growing into!
With current air condition being bad outside, I have received some questions about the safety of classroom air when air conditioners are off. Here I explain to some of my fourth graders how univents work to ensure students stay safe. https://youtu.be/-vrk65F8vr4

Do you have kids that are having a hard time disconnecting from their phones? Is it impacting their social life or family life, preventing them from connecting with others? The CMS/CHS Home and School Association is hosting a special speaker series tomorrow night to help address these concerns, and all parents are welcome. While this will target grade 4-12 families, all are welcome.

In Cresskill Schools, it is our goal to remain responsive to the unique needs of all of our students. This week begins the holy month of Ramadan, and Cresskill community is helping to observe this month by holding a crescent lantern event at the library this evening. The invite is attached and all are welcome. Additionally, it is important to be responsive to the needs of our students that observe this month. Ramadan sometimes includes fasting of not only food but also water. We encourage parents and students that are observing the month to reach out and partner with us in ensuring a fruitful observance. Sometimes minor adjustments can have a major positive impact for our students. We look forward to helping.
