Governor Murphy Holds Town Hall At Paramus High

Governor Phil Murphy spoke with the Bergen County community at a town hall on Wednesday, March 14 at Paramus High School. West Brook Middle School fifth grade student and "aspiring journalist" Jack was the only member of the press to ask a question. He asked about the governor's position on PARCC testing, a timely concern of many students, parents, and schools. We're proud of Jack for representing Paramus and being an engaged citizen!

Thank You Paramus Children’s Health Foundation

The Paramus Public School District, our Special Education Department, and the Paramus community thanked the Paramus Children’s Health Foundation for improving the lives of our students on Friday, February 22, 2018, at a blue ribbon cutting ceremony at Ridge Ranch Elementary School. The Paramus Children's Health Foundation provides financial support to families of children who suffer from a severe illness or injury that result in economic hardship and to support programs and projects that benefit the children of Paramus. These programs have included Unified Sports, directed by Jeanne Browne and Juan Castro, The Diff-Abilities Program being offered through the Borough of Paramus and directed by Barbara Anderson, the sensory room at Ridge Ranch, and the handicapped accessible playground at West Brook Middle School. They have donated over $90,000 and have gone above and beyond all expectations to provide children with illnesses and disabilities programs and medical care that promote social, emotional, and physical health. Much of the donated money results from profits from the past Harlem Wizard’s games. The Paramus Children’s Health Foundation’s constant effort toward improving the lives of children is an affirmation that goodness exists in our community.
