     Yesterday, Mr. Sasso took his Syracuse University Introduction to Sports Management classes to the MLB studios in Secaucus.  The students had the opportunity to see Studio 42, named for Jackie Robinson.  The studio hosts the MLB draft, all special events and guests, as well as Diamond Demo instructional segments.  Everyone agreed that this was a great learning experience.mlbtrip

  • Teen PEP Working Hard

    Posted by Lorraine Brooks at 1/22/2015
    Recently, the students in our Teen PEP (peer education program) participated in a seminar given by Allison Bressler of "A Partnership for Change."  The seminar focused on dating abuse and students learned about the signs of abuse and methods of preventing it.  The students will be teaching what they learned to our peer leadership groups.  The program was sponsored by the ORADELL KIDS FOUNDATION and was very well received by all who attended.  Ms. Maureen Kiel is the Teen PEP teacher.

    Students in Mme Broomall's Honors French 4 class visited a French Cooking blog http://www.nicerendezvous.com/car/200908023466/actu-n-1335.html to learn to make Salade Niçoise. Students brought in the needed ingredients, learned to prepare an authentic vinaigrette, and then wished each other, "Bon appetit" !

  • Debate at Home

    Posted by Lorraine Brooks at 12/3/2014

    Apparently being home suits the debate team!  On Tuesday we had a great day as we hosted teams from Northern Valley Demarest, Northern Valley Old Tappan, Ridgefield Park, Becton Regional and Wood-Ridge for a varsity tournament.  Out of 24 two student teams, senior captains Joon Seo and Charlie Lee placed second overall, winning all four of their rounds.  In addition, Joon tied for the second place individual speaker and Charlie tied for third.  Sophomore Emily DiMaulo-Milk also took a share of the third place speaker award.  Finally, senior Erin Pak was named best judge of the tournament.  We are so proud of all of our debaters and judges, and the wonderful River Dell community for their support in running today's large event.
