Body Image & the Media: When Did We Learn to Hate Our Bodies?

The Franklin Lakes Public Library has an important program coming up on Wednesday, May 18 at 7 p.m. Nancy B. Graham, LCSW is the Professional Relations Representative for The Renfrew Center in Ridgewood, New Jersey, will be speaking about body image issues, eating disorders, resources for recovery and how to choose a treatment center. Since its founding in 1985, The Renfrew Center has been a pioneer in eating disorder treatment and has been providing patients and their families with tools they need to succeed in recovery and in life. We believe this will be a particularly useful program for teens and their parents. The program is free and residents from all communities.

Parents/Guardians,

On Wednesday April 27th and Thursday April 28th Ramapo High School will be conducting their mandatory bus emergency evacuation drills in the front of the school from 7:00 AM – 7:30 AM. As such, we expect some impact on the morning traffic flow and student drop off area. Please plan accordingly and allow extra travel time on these two days.

As a general rule, parents and drivers need to practice courtesy, responsibility and patience. Please be mindful of pedestrians.

Ways to ease congestion:

  • Allow the buses access to the drop-off/pick-up lane first
  • Keep the traffic moving as much as possible
  • Please drive as far forward as you can in the drop off / pick up zone
  • Pull up close, but at a safe distance to the car in front of you
  • Do not cut in line or take short cuts
  • Do not leave your car in the drop off lane while you go into the school. If you need to go into the school, please park in a parking space
  • If you have to wait in a no parking zone, stay to the right, close to the yellow curb, and do not leave your car unattended
  • Please be patient

Thank you – Principal Dr. Louis Moore

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Your son's/daughter's course selections for the 2016-2017 school year are now available to view through the Genesis Parent Portal (click on the Scheduling tab). Please take notice, health is not reflected in these requests but will be implemented into all final schedules. Each student has met with their counselor to discuss teacher course recommendations and choose electives.

Please review them carefully. It is essential that the course selection process be considered with great care.

  • The order in which the subjects are placed does not have any relation to the period of the day that the course will be scheduled.

Every attempt will be made to include all selections into next year's schedule. Alternate courses will be used if an original request cannot be accommodated, however, electives or alternate courses are not guaranteed.

From these requests your child's schedule will be created and made available to you at a later date.

Dear Ramapo Indian Hills Regional High School Parents/Guardians:

As you know, we will be administering the State PARCC Assessment on April 18 and 19 (Math), and April 20, 21, and 22 (English/Lang. Arts) at Indian Hills and Ramapo High Schools. Testing will begin promptly at 7:40 am, so please make sure that your child arrives to school on time.

The majority of the students (except seniors) will be taking both the Math and ELA PARCC tests. However, on April 18 and 19, some of the 9th, 10th, and 11th graders are not required to take the PARCC Math Assessment (depending on your child's Math class - see the attached list of Math classes that will or will not be testing). It is these students, along with all seniors, that will need to arrive to school when the testing is over to begin the adjusted school day (see the school start times after testing below).

April 18 and 19 - Additional Bus Run Pick-Up Time for Non-Testers (Grades 9-12): If your child is not required to take the PARCC Math Assessment on April 18 and April 19 and is a regular bus rider, he/she will need to be at their regular bus stop according to the schedule below. This will assure their arrival to school for the planned start times.
  • Monday, April 18: 2 hours and 10 minutes after their normal bus pick-up time.
  • Tuesday, April 19: 3 hours and 30 minutes after their normal bus pick-up time
April 20, 21, and 22 - Attention Seniors and Juniors in AP English 3, Only: The Seniors and Juniors in AP English 3 will be the only students not testing for the PARCC English Assessment on April 20, 21, and 22, and they will not have to arrive to school until the testing is over. If your Senior or Junior in AP English 3 is a regular bus rider, it is up to you to phone the transportation department by Thursday, March 31 at 201-416-8100 - X3808 to let us know if your child will need transportation to school on April 20, 21, and 22. Please see the schedule below for the required arrival times to school after testing is over.

Wyckoff Chamber of Commerce

"Shark Tank"

Scholarship Challenge


The Wyckoff Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the 2nd annual "Shark Tank" Scholarship Challenge. This is an exciting opportunity to win up to $2,000 towards a college scholarship. The idea behind this is to promote entrepreneurism among our high school students. The application for these scholarships will take the form similar to that of the Shark Tank television show. The applicants can be an Indian Hills or Ramapo High School student, a Wyckoff resident from any private school plus in addition we will take submissions from any Chamber member's child or employee who is a high school student. Applicants can also form a team of up to 4 people and create an entity.


The application process will be in 2 steps for the students.

First, all applicants will submit a basic business idea that they believe would be a successful venture in the real world. For the application to be accepted the following criteria should be met but is not limited to:

  1. Idea for a product or service that is unique and feasible
  2. How and where will the product be made and\or the service provided?
  3. What is the estimated cost of manufacturing the product or for the providing of the service?
  4. Where will the product be sold or the service provided?
  5. What is the estimated potential profit of the business?
  6. What is the growth potential of the product or service?

We understand that some of these answers will be theoretical but we expect some research to be done to be as accurate as possible.


You may submit your ideas in any form you'd like such as a written business plan, a power point presentation or any way that you believe will get your idea across to the judges.


A panel of judges will pick the 10 best ideas and then these applicants will proceed to the 2nd step which consists of creating and making a presentation before the judges. The presentation can use any medium the applicant cares to use but the presentation should not last more than 5 minutes. Afterwards there will be questions from the judges.


In addition we will also be awarding a special scholarship to the business idea that is considered the most "Green" or environmentally friendly.


All applications will be submitted by e-mail to wyckoffchamber@gmail.com

or can be mailed to Wyckoff Chamber of Commerce, PO Box 2, Wyckoff, NJ 07481


Deadline for submissions is April 22, 2016. No proposal will be accepted after this date!!


The top 2, as chosen by a panel of judges, will win scholarships plus an extra one for the most "green" idea.

1st Prize $2000 for individual or team

2nd Prize $1000 for individual or team

Green Prize $500 for individual or team


Please e-mail any questions to wyckoffchamber@gmail.com or see a Business teacher at your school: Mrs. Harvey (806), Mrs. Migliacci (804) or Mrs. Crugnola (812)


Please make sure your name(s), grade(s) and contact information are on all proposals.


Thank you and we look forward to your submissions.
