The mission of the Secaucus Board of Education is to facilitate the development of each child to his or her greatest potential. The goal of this Board of Education shall be to offer each child in this district the educational opportunity that will enable him/her to function politically, economically, and socially in a democratic society.

Technology News

Dear Parents, We live in a world surrounded by technology and we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Fewer than half of all schools teach computer science. That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 9-15). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. Our Hour of Code is making a statement that Clarendon School is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills. To continue bringing programming activities to your students, we want to make our Hour of Code event huge. I encourage you to volunteer, reach out to local media, share the news on social media channels and consider hosting additional Hour of Code events in the community. This is a chance to change the future of education in Secaucus. See for details, and help spread the word. Sincerely, Dr. Garzon

It was a Great week in kindergarten! Mrs. Jaramillo’s class (and all of kindergarten) made gingerbread cookies to finish their Gg week explorations. They read different versions of the classic Gingerbread Man story - including Gingerbread Girl, Gingerbread Baby, Gingerbread Friends, Gingerbread Bear, and NinjaBread. They compared the similarities and differences, surveyed, tallied, and chose their favorite version, and did some gingerbread writing as well.
