School Sixteen located in the Montclair Heights section of Clifton opened its doors in 1957. It currently serves preschool handicapped through grade 5. We are proud to be recognized as the "Home of the Future's Best".
The Homeless Bus is an
organization that seeks donations of various items to deliver to
less fortunate areas in New Jersey and New York. With February
being the month of compassion at School 16, we would like to help
support this worthy cause. We are collecting water bottles,
individual apple sauce cups, and snack size bags of chips and
pretzels. We greatly appreciate your donations!
Our School 16 family participated
in a very special ceremony on Friday, January 29, 2016.
Under the guidance of Mr. Mc Carrick and Mr. Eng, School 16
fathers and local cub scout leaders, our American flag in
the All Purpose Room was retired and presented to Mrs.
Neczepir, who had donated the flag to School 16 twenty years
ago after it had been displayed in her father’s chamber.
With the help of our cub scouts and brownies, a new flag was
raised in its place. Students and staff showed respect by
wearing their scout uniforms and dressing in red, white, and

how generous they truly are!
Our School 16 family donated various gifts for the HSA’s

Center. We greatly appreciate the efforts of Mrs.

Our Add-A-Book program was also a
HUGE success! We received 72 book orders from our

Reading Incentive Program!! Parents
Read Flyer about this exciting new reading program for our
School 16's staff and students celebrated
P.A.C.K. Week - Pack Assorted Colors for Kids. This fun and
educational program is aimed at encouraging kids to eat a wide
variety of colorful fruits and vegetables, as each has its own
nutritional benefits. Each day of the week was assigned a
different color- red, white, orange/yellow, green, and
purple/blue. The children were encouraged to pack a fruit or
vegetable in their lunch box based on the color of the day. To
add to the fun, each class received points for their snacks and for
wearing the color. The classes with the most points
enjoyed extra recess. A job well done by all of our boys and
Our school is committed to creating a positive learning environment
where students are academically and socially successful. As
part of our promise, we are implementing a “Super Students of the
Month” program to assist in building student character and to
develop a sense of community.

Our 3rd graders recently had a visit from
the Fire Safety House. This mobile classroom was specifically
designed to teach children vital burn prevention and fire escape
techniques through a fun, safe simulation of common hazards.
The house, equipped with a living
room, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom, features the types of dangers
children should look for. In addition, the house emits a
non-toxic white fog to teach children to crawl low to safety.
A heated door helps children choose the right exit and a ladder on
the second floor allows them to practice emergency escapes.
The boys and girls certainly found the Fire Safety House to be a
valuable and enjoyable learning experience that taught the
importance of fire safety as well as compassion and caring for
October is National Fire
Prevention Month. Students in Pre-K through Grade 2
kicked off the celebration with a visit from the Clifton
Fire Department. The boys and girls also created a
Beep, Where You Sleep” theme poster and participated in
emergency preparedness activities with Ms. Paton. Thank you
Ms. Paton and Mrs. Weckesser for organizing such a fun
filled learning experience!
"Knockout Toxins with Daniel the
Beagle" was presented to the students on Tuesday, September
30, 2015. Through personal illustrations and examples
from Daniel and his canine sibling, Shelby, the students
were inspired to knock out the potential "toxins," such as
peer pressure, conflict, and the pressure to succeed, and
learn to be more accepting and compassionate to others.
The program concluded with the children meeting each pup!
