WHS April Students of the Month

April Students of the Month
2014 – 2015

KYLE MASARWA – Kyle, a senior, is the Academic Student of the Month.  Teachers and support staff are amazed at the transformation this young man has made during his tenure at WHS.  What we have especially noticed and admire about Kyle is his emerging ability to advocate for himself.  Kyle took it upon himself to apply for college, apply for SAT exams and talk to the appropriate staff when he needed clarification.  He has truly come a long way.  Kyle is a young man who has bridged the gap between the necessity for support and the desire for independence.  He is steadily improving for the better.  While Kyle’s disability may have set some personal and academic barriers, it is with strength and grace that Kyle continues to confront these challenges head on.

MARISSA SANTO – Marissa, a senior, decided to join our Kids, Kids, Kids Program
 in her last year at Waldwick High School.  Marissa loves working with kids and it shows.  Not only does Marissa excel academically in the program, but her creativity shines through as well.  She even bakes for us!  Thanks Marisa for a great year
and best of luck in your future endeavors.

ERIN McHUGH – Erin, a senior, has had a great month on the track team. On Monday, April 27, Erin won the NJIC Patriot Division Championship in the Javelin at the League Championship Meet.  In fact, her throw of 121’ 7” was the best in the entire NJIC Conference at the Championship Meet.  Erin has also broken the school record in the Javelin this season by almost 10 feet from the previous record.  In addition, Erin is doing very well in school carrying all A’s and B’s and is a great teammate to everyone in the Track program.

ALEX SHERIFF – Alex, a senior, continues to improve this track season and on Monday, April 27, Alex won the NJIC Patriot Division Championship in the Triple Jump with a personal best jump of 41’ 4”.  Alex is a hard worker, great teammate and fierce competitor.  Alex is holding up his end in the classroom as well and is everything we consider a Warrior to be.

Global Empathy Project

WHS Blueprint class is participating in a Global Empathy Project, researching and learning about global issues which impact the lives of people all over the world. The freshmen students are taking the project one step further by raising awareness and money. Members from the Wings of Refuge Children Home in Haiti visited our Waldwick Freshmen students last week and joined forces with them to provide underprivileged Haitian children with shelter, food and education. Wings of Refuge is only one of the many organizations with which the students are involved. Please be on the lookout for posters and fundraisers this spring to help bring attention and aide to these global issues.
