A Message from Ms. Santa
- What did your child(ren) do that was successful in the first half of the year, and what does your child(ren) need to do to move forward?
- Focus on one or two things that will help guide the way for your child(ren).
- Reach out to the teachers with concerns or questions.
- Talk with your child(ren) about school, share your thoughts, and ask open-ended questions such as, "What are you looking forward to?"
Now is a great time to set goals and have discussions about the second half of the 2022-2023 school year with your child(ren).

Grade 6 Art: Abstract Designs
First the students folded the paper to make their triangles. Then they wrote their name in each triangle from top to bottom in block or bubble letters. After tracing the lines of their name, the students folded the paper to trace their name in the next triangle, and so on. Lastly, the students colored in their designs so that by the end, they had a colorful Radial Design!

Assembly: February 7th
Charles DeWolf Middle School is excited to have Mr. Gian Paul Gonzalez present to our students on February 7, 2023. Gian Paul Gonzalez is a motivational speaker who provides opportunities for youth to become empowered members of their community through extracurricular activities, events, and programming. He also bridges the gap between individual growth, improving families, and unifying communities around a common core belief that there is hope for each child personally, academically, socially, and economically. His strategies/mechanisms are meant to help students achieve more now and in their future endeavors. One of Gian Paul's showcase presentations is called ALL IN, which recounts a motivational speech Gian Paul gave the NY GIANTS the year they won the Super Bowl.
ALL IN - The Story of How All In Started with the NY Giants and What is Happening Today.
Keynote Speaker - Gian Paul Gonzalez

The girls' basketball team finished its season with a record of 12-3 with a 44-32 loss to Closter in the Northern Valley Championship. Alivia Badurina led the Lady Knights with 16 points. Lexi Caunedo had 11 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 blocks. Christina D'Andrea chipped in 5 points.
The boys' basketball season came to an end in a hard fought, well played game with a two point loss to Closter 57-55 in the Northern Valley Championship game. From Coach Westervelt: Although the team fell two points short of their goal, it doesn't take away from the excellent season that they had. The effort and heart the boys showed this season is second to none.
Congratulations to both teams on a successful season!
