    Congratulations to NSW Cheerleaders

    Congratulations to the Norman S. Weir Cheerleading Squad of 2018-2019 for winning their division at the Annual Taub-Doby Cheerleading Competition.  The squad put on a tremendous display of precision and athleticism. Their routine was flawless which included flips, tumbles, and feats of strength and let’s not forget music from the ’70s, ’80s, and 90’s ‘till the present. Once again congratulations to the cheerleading squad!

    "into the Frame" literacy nights

    Art is a visual language that all children speak. The Norman S. Weir community is fortunate to have parents and teachers who recognize the value of the creative process. Those parents and teachers help children's imaginations to soar by providing the opportunity to think, create, discover, problem solve, and build confidence.  Rows of easels were set up facing Ms. Jackie Norman, NSW Art Teacher, who step by step walked students and parents through the painting of The Bravest Fish and  A Sprinkle of Magic-- while listening to Herbie Hancock's version of Rhapsody in Blue and The Black Violins.   Groups of smiling students and parents holding nearly identical paintings took part in the “Into the Frame” art phenomenon at Norman S. Weir School courtesy of Title 1 Funding provided by the parent resource center.  A colorful evening was had by all!

    Paterson Music Program


    Paterson Music Project students from Norman S. Weir School accompanied by Mr. Bernie Visto, music teacher, attended a concert at Carnegie Hall featuring the Sphinx Virtuosi. This critically acclaimed all Black and Latino Sphinx Virtuosi is comprised of alumni of the Sphinx Competition. The performance included repertoires of a solo violin piece Paganiniana by Nathan Milstein, the Beethoven Grosse Fuge, Vivaldi’s Concerto in B-flat Major for violin, cello and continuo, as well as the New York City premier of works by a Latino and an African-American composer, Jimmy Lopez and Michael Abels, respectively. The Norman S. Weir students sat front row and absorbed the beautiful acoustics of Carnegie Hall.  How do you get to Carnegie Hall?  Practice, practice, practice!


    Read for the Record
    Read for the Record
    Norman S. Weir School joined "Read for the Record" and became a part of the world’s largest shared reading experience! This annual campaign was launched over a decade ago to highlight the importance of building early literacy and language skills for EVERY child. Mr. Cosimo Torello, Librarian, read Quakers by Liz Wong to students in Grades K-3 ensuring that all children have the opportunity to be prepared to succeed in school. This tale is about understanding, acceptance, and learning that it’s ok to be whoever you want to be.

    Mission Statement
