Autumn is a time for reflection and preparation, and it is hard to believe that the first marking period is almost over. October was a busy and exciting month for the Totowa School District!

As we move into the second marking period, I am extremely proud of the accomplishments that the students of the Totowa School District have achieved. I want to thank all of our students, staff and parents for their continued hard work and dedication.

On October 15, 2016, Washington Park School students joined together for their annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. The Student Council, under the direction of Ms. Emmolo and Ms. Mostello, organized the walk with 354 students participating. Over $11,000 was raised and the funds enable the American Cancer Society.

On October 31, 2016, students in grades TPK through four, paraded around Memorial and Washington Park schools in their costumes. Parents, grandparents and friends of the students gathered around to enjoy the parade. Students in grades five through eight marched around the Washington Park School Gym. After the parade, students enjoyed Halloween festivities!
