Meet the Superintendent
Welcome and thank you for your interest in Watchung Borough School District. We are proud of our schools and committed to preparing our students to be resilient, collaborative learners in a complex, ever-changing world. Our culture of inquiry and collaboration is our foundation, and our dedicated teachers and staff inspire students to be curious, creative problem solvers who find joy in learning.
We teach our students to explore and inquire, discover and pursue passions, and think critically and creatively. We promote innovative, authentic instruction and honor our students as individuals who learn in different ways and at different rates. Our students embrace divergent perspectives and deepen their understanding of others in a culturally vibrant, inclusive community. We believe in the power of a growth mindset and encourage our students to take risks and learn from mistakes.
This is an exciting time to be a student and educator in our schools. We value our learning community and know that our students thrive when they are engaged, experience real world challenges, and feel a sense of belonging.
Messages from the Superintendent
Last Friday, I was at the borough hall for a meeting, and I could not help but notice the framed photographs of the councils over the years. But the image that stayed with me this past week was the proud look on Mayor Mobus’s face in the 2012 council portrait.
At last night’s board of education meeting, the administrative leadership team shared two presentations and welcomed our new business administrator.
With school security as our number one priority, I am writing to inform you that we had to communicate with the police last night regarding a report from elementary students.
