• To the Crescent Elementary School Community:


    Welcome to the Crescent Elementary School website. This is an excellent resource to find information about programs, activities, procedures, contacts, and much more! I encourage you to look through all of the tabs carefully so that you can be as informed as possible.  


    I am very excited to introduce myself as the new Crescent principal. I have heard so many wonderful things about the people here in Waldwick, and I am really looking forward to meeting all of you! 


    I come to you from the Rochelle Park School District, where I served as a fifth grade teacher for 17 years and then as Principal for 4 years. My experiences in Rochelle Park have prepared me for my new position in the Waldwick School District. As your new principal, my first priority will be to focus on the safety of our children, our staff, and our building. Before we even begin the process of education, we must ensure that our school (and everyone in it) is safe. Following proper procedures and being diligent is key! Your cooperation, participation, and understanding in this endeavor will contribute to making Crescent as safe as possible. 


    The academic program here at Crescent has a strong reputation, and I will be working with our dedicated staff members to make it even stronger. Together, we will provide our students with opportunities to access the curriculum, develop problem-solving skills, establish self-esteem, and apply talents and creativity. We will also encourage and foster behaviors that reflect good citizenship, responsibility, cooperation, and respect for others.  In essence, our goal is to promote well-rounded individuals who will make a positive contribution to society.


    During the course of the school year, you may have a question or concern regarding your child/children. If so, please contact us as soon as possible, and one of our staff members will get back to you. Should there be an issue that requires my attention, I can be reached at 201-445-0690 or by email cannicib@waldwickschools.org.  


    Once again, I look forward to working with all members of the Crescent school community to provide the best possible education for your children. Together, we can do great things!
