News and Information about the New Providence School District


    September 2012

    Welcome back to the 2012/2013 school year!  I hope that over the past few weeks your children have settled into their classrooms and are enjoying school.  As I visited the schools, it was apparent that your efforts in preparing your children for school and our efforts in preparing their programs were a success.  By 9:00 AM on the first day, students were in their classrooms engaged in learning.  I want to take this opportunity to thank the entire school community for their efforts in the opening of schools.


    Last year culminated with many achievements, and we opened this school year with the excitement of NPHS being ranked the #1 public high school by New Jersey Monthly.  Please take a look at the articles and links below regarding these accomplishments.


    I would ask that you review the district calendar and school dismissal policies to ensure that you have made arrangements for your children.  A copy of the school calendar and dismissal policy will be provided to you in your children’s school based opening packets.  You may also access this information on the district website at www.npsd.k12.nj.us


    As a reminder, we will continue to publish the Our Schools E-Newsletter on a monthly basis.  Anyone can register to receive the newsletter by subscribing through our district website.


    Thank you for your ongoing support, and I wish our students and staff continued success in the 2012/2013 school year.




    David M. Miceli, Ed.D.

    Superintendent of Schools
