WHS Teacher, Ms. Marsiglia, Participates in $3 Million National Science Foundation Project

WHS Biology teacher, Ms. Robin Marsiglia, is participating in a $3 million National Science Foundation project, partnered through Stevens Institute of Technology.  The goals of this project are to study how high school Science teachers in different disciplines can learn engineering concepts, how they introduce those concepts in the classroom, and to develop a set of recommendations to guide teachers in infusing curricula with engineering concepts and activities.  Teacher participation in the program requires a two-year, 4 week professional development and classroom implementation commitment.
The module will engage students in an engineering design challenge.  The engineering activities are related to atmospheric carbon dioxide and will require students to apply and synthesize concepts related to photosynthesis and the cycling of carbon in living and nonliving components of the biosphere.  Both are topics in the Waldwick Curriculum.  The students will also gain a basic understanding of …

Important message about the Championship FB Game

As we get closer to the big football game on Saturday, I thought it was important to remind everyone that this game is about the players and coaches who have worked extremely hard to get to this point.  The GAME is the show!   I have heard a lot talk from students, parents and alumni about tailgating at MetLife prior to the game.  Getting together before the game is great and a perfect way to bring Warrior Nation together.  
With that said, this is a high school event.  Yes we are playing at MetLife Stadium where the Jets and Giants play but we cannot tailgate in the same manner that goes on at those games.  
Have your steaks and burgers on the grill, eggs, bacon and bagels on the table, chips, pretzels & crackerjacks in the bowls and coolers filled with soda, juice and water.  Have a catch in the parking lot or play Cornhole.  Play music and sit around and talk until game time.     My hope is that the adults act like adults and set a great example, understanding that this is a high …
