Brief Description of the Site:
The Upper Saddle River School District serves 1,365 K-8 students in Upper Saddle River, NJ. The district's Web site provides a nice blend of district and individual school news and information. The Home page includes links to school sites and district divisions as well as new or updated items links that feature important events throughout the district.
How to use the site:
The Curriculum and Instruction area within the Site Directory caught my attention, particularly the links to the Art Gallery featuring student work at all grade levels, and the Student Project Links, sites selected by teachers for student use in completing assignments. The Technology section offers parents clear descriptions of the kinds of technology-based activities children engage in at each grade level, and may spark some ideas for teacher visitors.
Note: School Site of the Week runs every Friday in this space. Submit your favorite school Web site to coordinator Susan Brooks-Young at Sjbrooks@aol.com.
