PSAT Information for 17-18 School Year

Register now for next year's PSAT Test @ Waldwick High School on October 14, 2017

The Waldwick High School Guidance Department advises that all juniors take the PSAT/Preliminary SAT Test, which is held in October each year. The Guidance Department highly recommends all sophomores take this test as well. This test serves as a practice SAT for 10th grade student. For the 11th grade student, taking this test will qualify them for the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) scholarship programs.

We implement the PSAT registration early because we have to meet very specific deadline dates in order to secure enough test materials for the October test. Most of the ordering has to take place prior to the summer break. For that reason, we ask that you register by June 12 for the October administration of the PSAT.

New Schedule at WHS

Starting next year, Waldwick High School will be changing its daily schedule to a rotating/drop schedule. We have been working on this as a school community for the last two years and we truly believe students will benefit from this new schedule.  

Next week (Week of May 22) we will be running the new schedule as a practice run for next year. I have meet with all students and explained the schedule and how it works. 

I have created a short video for the parents/guardians to explain the schedule and some of the details related to it.  I will be hosting two informational sessions on the new schedule to share more details and answer any questions.  

Meeting Dates/Times
Wednesday, May 31 at 6:30 pm in the  HS Media Center

ATHLETICS


SARAH ARMSTRONG Sarah, a senior on the softball team this spring.  She is the Captain of the Softball Team and is the vocal and emotional leader.  A 4-year starter, Sarah has our team at 6-2 and in a great position to lead us into the County and State Tournaments.  She is also having her best statistical season, but offers so much more than that.  Sarah arranged winter workouts, ran a clothing fundraiser and communicates with her teammates admirably well.  She has hosted team-building events also.  Lastly, and most importantly, she was part of the "passing of the guard" recently as she helped formally introduce the new members of Waldwick's National Honor Society, a group she earned her way onto through her own academic achievements.  She's just a great athlete, student and Waldwick Warrior.

RYAN REYNOLDS Ryan, a senior, is an outstanding leader on the Boys Tennis Team this spring.  Due to his play and effort this season, he has gained the respect of all players on the team.  As the Captain this year, Ryan has set an example of the benefits of hard work, dedication and desire.  He has compiled an individual record of 5-2 at second singles while playing some of the toughest competitors in Bergen County.  More importantly, Ryan has exhibited extreme grit, hustle and a winning attitude.  He has earned the respect and admiration of other coaches in the league through his sportsmanship and hustle.  Not only does Ryan excel on the athletic field; he is also a fine scholar, ranking near the top of his class.  Ryan is the ultimate Waldwick Warrior.
