      Congratulations to Mrs. K. Henry on being named Parent of the Year for Norman S. Weir

      "Into The Frame" Art and Literacy Night

      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 Giraffes Can’t Dance-- while listening to Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 (Pastoral), Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and the Sorcerer’s Apprentice.   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!

      A charismatic performance presented by McDonalds told the story of Black History through music, dance and drama while captivating the audience at Norman S. Weir School!  The presentation encompassed a large spectrum of the significant contributions of Black Americans as the singers passionately performed a repertoire of songs causing the entire audience to erupt into cheers!   The musical and dramatic performance explored the brave risks, painful endurance and brilliant ideas of civil rights champions such as Dr. Martin Luther King while celebrating and witnessing the past, and reflecting on the impact that their courageous actions have on today and in the future.

      Each student needed to score at least a “5” on either both the PARCC ELA (Language Arts) and the PARCC Math, or individually on the NJASK Science. The score denotes that the student is “Exceeding Expectations.”

      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
      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.

      Aloha!  Norman S. Weir School conducted a Skype visit today from Hawaii with Disney's award winning author Bruce Hale to discuss his new book Mutant Mantis Lunch Ladies!   The students and their teachers cheered when Mr. Hale "appeared" on the screen.

      Mr. Hale talked about the process he went through to research, write, and publish the book and encouraged students to reach for their dreams. The whole group enjoyed waving at and thanking Mr. Hale for "visiting."  The book was a fun read and the students were thoroughly mesmerized by the author!
