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".
As School 16 is concerned about the safety of
our students, we are offering our students, parents and staff
personal safety training from the NJ Child Assault Prevention (CAP)
program. CAP is a statewide primary prevention project with a
mission to reduce bullying, stranger abduction and known adult
assault. To learn more about CAP and what they will be teaching
your children, we invite you to join us at the CAP parent workshop
on Tuesday, December 8, 2015 at 2:00pm. Below is the CAP Community
Affairs video from their website. http://njcap.org/cap-new-community-affairs-video/

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!
