What’s Happening This Week at CHS
Starting this week at Clifton High School, juniors will take the New Jersey Graduation Proficiency Assessment for two hours each morning from March 13th to March 17th. The testing will not affect the bell schedule and every student is still expected to arrive at school as usual at 7:30 a.m. The results of each student's test will determine whether or not they are proficient enough in Language Arts and Math to graduate. However, if a student does not pass, there are measures that can be taken such as extra classes, a certain SAT score, or other tests to allow them to graduate on time. For more information, you can contact the Central Wing Vice Principal, Mr. Wacha, at TWacha@cliftonschools.net.
On Wednesday, March 15th, there will be an All City Orchestra performance from 7:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. in the school’s auditorium. All City is a program throughout elementary, middle, and high school to showcase the development and growth of students in the music department throughout the years they have been playing an instrument. Elementary, middle, and high schoolers display their talents through this performance once a year beginning with specially chosen elementary and middle schoolers and ending with the entire Clifton High orchestra. Mrs. Babiak, Clifton High’s strings teacher, will be directing for the high school and the orchestra will feature a range of instruments such as strings, brass, woodwind, percussion, and more. Make sure to check it out and support Clifton Public Schools’ music department!
Friday, March 17th, will be an early dismissal day for the district therefore, Clifton High School students will get out at 11:48 a.m. Usually every month there is an early dismissal for Achieve NJ, a program that observes, instructs, and evaluates teachers in order to improve student learning.
Have an amazing week, CHS!
