Scott Kallensee, Chartwells Director of Dining Services and Beth McCann, Chartwells Assistant Director of Dining Services presented Superintendent Howard Lerner, Director of Instruction Tara Bohan and the staff and students of New Bridges with a generous donation of raised beds and garden soil for our horticulture program. New Bridges students have been planting herbs and vegetables in the greenhouse and will soon fill the beds donated by Chartwells with summer vegetables. This week we harvested our first group of lettuce which was made into delicious salads for staff and students. Our school community is looking forward to expanding our crop making us a farm to table school!

NJQSAC Results - BCSS Designated a High Performing District by the Commissioner of Education

VeronicaMs. Veronica Bolcik commenced her career in the Bergen County Special Services School District as a Teacher Assistant in 1997 in our Multiply Handicapped Program which was then housed at Bergen Community College. In 1981, Ms. Bolcik left the field of education to pursue a career in the business world, marketing educational items for individuals with special needs.

Always knowing that she would return to teaching, after twenty-five years, Ms. Bolcik returned to the Special Services School District as a substitute Teacher and was subsequently hired as a long term substitute Music Teacher for the Bleshman School in 2005. In 2007, Ms. Bolcik was hired as a full -time Teacher and assigned to the Bleshman School where she currently works.

During the past ten years, Ms. Bolcik has been assigned to work with high school students. During this time, Ms. Bolcik has been actively involved in supporting/ overseeing   many Bleshman School initiatives.   These include: facilitating the School Student Council and the Council’s projects, Table-to-Table, that entails feeding those in need throughout North Jersey, the American Red Cross initiatives for Earthquake and Tsunami Relief, co- facilitating the establishment and operation of the   Bleshman School Sensory Room and the student PROM Committee. During the past eight years, Ms. Bolcik has supported and worked along with her colleagues in the area of the NJ State Student Assessments, which include the Alternate Proficiency Assessment (APA) and Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM). She also has most adeptly assisted her colleagues in coordinating student educational programming at the Meadowlands Environmental Center.

At the District Level, Ms. Bolcik has been an active participant on the Science and Social Studies Committees and contributed to writing curriculum in both of these areas.   Ms. Bolcik has also served as our Teacher Representative on our New Jersey Quality Single Accountability Continuum (NJQSAC) Committee.

It is with a deep sense of appreciation, that we acknowledge Ms. Bolciks’ abilities, talents and commitment to our students, her colleagues, school community and District. The years of her unwavering dedication is felt in the hearts of those that she has taught, comforted, and advised.

Her influence will live on in her students and those that she has touched along the way.

The Bergen County Special Services School District and Board of Education would like to thank Ms. Bolcik for her many years of dedication and wish her a long, happy and healthy and enjoyable retirement.
