Rochelle Park: High School
Our goal for September is to acclimate all of our students and families to our academic and therapeutic school routine. We are looking forward to promoting more parental involvement and enthusiasm as we launch for the first time our Parent Access through the Internet. Parents will be able to view their student’s daily attendance, progress and grades throughout the year. Our aim is to provide as much access and communication with their child’s teachers as possible, while keeping them informed of their progress at Sage Day. We are enhancing our technology, while simultaneously going “greener.” Our summer has been a busy and productive one as we prepare to transition and orient our team members to new updates, policies and exciting changes.
New course selections for 2013-2014 will include: College Prep Math, Anatomy, Spanish for Native Speaking Students, Spanish Culture & 20th Century Hispanic Literature, Computer Coding, World Cuisine and Ceramics.
We are excited to welcome the following new staff members to our Sage Day Rochelle Park community:
- Elizabeth George – Clinical Staff
- Allison Honschke – Math Teacher
- Rachel Godfrey – Science Teacher
- Cecilia Maggiore – Associate Teacher in both Spanish and Math
Mr. Dan Montesano will be moving into a new position of College & Career Transition Coordinator and will be working with students from both the Rochelle Park Campus and the Boonton campus. Mr. John Kalnberg will also be moving into a new position of Technology Coordinator for all three Sage Day Schools. Mrs. Corie Stone will be stepping into a full-time position of Instructional Supervisor while still teaching two senior classes.
Boonton: High School
We look forward to starting the new school year with new students in our community as well! It will be a great and energetic start of the year with these changes, but as always it will be nice to settle back into the things Sage Day is so good at – Success, Achievement, Growth, and Empowerment. After all, that is what S.A.G.E. is about!
This year we will have a slight change in our schedule. Non-credit clubs will be replaced by elective courses that will have graded credits associated with them. We will still offer our popular Art and Music classes as electives, as well as some new offerings that students will get to choose from on the first day of school. The final options are still being fine tuned by the teaching staff, but we are excited about some of the topics being considered.
There are two new additions to the Sage Day at Boonton community. We are very glad to have Marc Petersen as our new Associate Teacher for Mathematics and Christine Ferro as our newest Therapist. Both are very skilled in their field and are replacing staff members who have gone on to further their careers in other areas.
Mahwah: Lower & Middle School
The start of any new year requires a commitment on the part of the faculty to clearly establish goals and objectives for each child and the school as a whole. Understanding the uniqueness of each child is essential ensuring that each student gets off to the best start possible. Celebrating the small steps leads to greater accomplishments over time. Staff, program and our updated facility support the mission of providing each Sage Day Lower and Middle School student with a strong start to the new year. Positive energy and the enthusiastic belief in the core tenants of respect and responsibility drive the direction of the middle school and the community that surrounds it.
New Staff Members at Sage Day Mahwah:
- Mr. Matt Wilson, Para-Science
- Mrs. Calabro, aka Miss Mucerino (moose) 6th grade English
- Ms. Schiavone, 6th grade History
- Ms. Vangie Vargas, therapist
