Our district strongly supports fostering a positive classroom and school climate for our students and staff throughout the year. Not only is providing our students a safe environment paramount for building academic success, but allows them to grow from a social standpoint. Here at Bergenfield Public Schools, we take great pride in having a learning community that come from many ethnicities, religions, backgrounds and beliefs. We hope that our district community respects the differences of classmates, colleagues and citizens and recognizes that respecting peers can help make society more tolerant against divisiveness. Our schools commemorated Week of Respect in various forms to help hinder bullying and instill a culture of respecting others. Click the title to read more.
As the saying goes, “let there be peace on Earth and let it begin with me.” To bring a little bit more peace in our classrooms and with each other, our district elementary schools participated in commemorating International Day of Peace. Click title for more information.
