Ringwood’s Ryerson students win Battle of the Books by David Zimmer

Congratulations Faith, Michael, Jack, and Monica!  We’re incredibly proud of you.  Many thanks to Mrs. Gay for her leadership and dedication!

RINGWOOD – Ryerson students recently conquered the county in a Battle of the Books.

The four-student team from the middle school punctuated its win in the 17-team New Jersey Association of School Librarians (NJASL) contest in Hawthorne last month with a perfect score, officials said.

The unblemished score card from Faith Morris Liu, Jack Burke, Michael Maglio and Monica Sperzel is not unprecedented, said Ryerson Middle School teacher Ellen Gay. It is, however, unusual.

Congratulations Hewitt!  Shout out to Mrs. Camporeale and Mrs. Kirkegard for their hard work in applying for this grant.

“The good people of Ringwood passed a referendum to upgrade Hewitt School’s infrastructure,” Kirkegard said. “We look forward to adding to our library’s book collection through James Patterson’s generosity and getting the books into the hands of our students.”

Ringwood teachers want contract terms settled by Holly Stewart

“There’s a building consensus among our members that our role is undervalued,” Odgers said.

She said the teachers’ union has spent all but 10 months of the past five years negotiating this contract as well as the one that preceded it. A three-year agreement effective July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2015 was not settled until early in 2014.

“It’s the ultimate show of disrespect to endlessly delay this process,” said Odgers.
