It is hard to believe that our December holiday break is just about upon us and that we have reached the midpoint of our second quarter. There is certainly an excitement in the building as the break nears and we have had so many things to celebrate and students and staff to acknowledge. The school year has certainly flown by for me and I thank you all for your hard work and your support for me personally so far. I wish you all the very best of holiday season and a very Happy New Year!

DECEMBER 14TH BOARD MEETING: It was so indicative of the type of community we have to see so many people in attendance at our December 14th Board of Education Meeting. The night was a tremendous celebration. We had the opportunity to celebrate the retirement of our Superintendent Diana Todaro who will be leaving us at the end of the month. Ms. Todaro has had an exceptional career here at Harborfields and her care and concern for the children of our schools has always been evident. She will be sorely missed but we wish her all the very best. That evening, we also had the opportunity to officially celebrate Harborfields High School’s Blue Ribbon award. It was a fitting end for Ms. Todaro who has now seen every eligible building in the district receive this incredibly prestigious award.
Journalism Goes to NBC Studios: The Harborfields Journalism class attended a private tour of NBC Studios and was able to get a look behind the scenes at the operation of a major news network. Our morning announcement team was actually able to broadcast our daily announcements from the studio to the school that day.
Shakespeare Recitation Contest: Over the last two months AP Literature & Composition students studied, memorized, and performed sonnets and monologues by William Shakespeare. The top five students from each section moved on to the 9th Annual Shakespeare Recitation finals which were held on November 22nd in the auditorium. The participants were:
To determine the top two performers, the scores of the three faculty judges (Mrs. Gavin, Ms. Thomsen & Ms. LaMantia) were combined with audience/peer ballots. The top two performers were recognized and received certificates from The National Endowment for the Arts. The 2016/ 2017 Shakespeare Recitation Contest winners are Sean Hurley & Emma Magnus.
Students of the Month: I had the pleasure of presenting our October and November Students of the Month recently. Please join me in congratulating the following students who were selected by their teachers for their positive contributions to their classes: Gracie Heil, Gabrielle Troy, Simrah Malik, Zachary Zethner, Marco LaRocca, Hateem Sony, Alessandra DeMinico, Alexander Martin, Wawensky Deronvil, Yarlin Sanchez Almendarez, Samantha Schapero, Natalie Troy and Madeline Tichy. There were also 3 Staff Members of the Month: Ann Heverin, Pam Fakatselis and Rita Vita.
Random Acts of Kindness: We are pleased to share that Ava Stanisci, Medora Benson, Juan Carrasco and Noelia Ramirez were recognized for being kind when they thought nobody was looking!
The HF Mobile Computing Club is pleased to share that an App has been developed by our students, for our students. The HF Navigator App is available on the Apple iOS Store and on Android in Google Play. The App is free and contains many features such as links to resources for parents and students, daily announcements, staff directory, educational tools, and a bus finder application. There will be many updates throughout the year as our Mobile Computing Club students continue to develop new ideas. Download the HF Navigator App today and let us know what you think!
