• To the Crescent Elementary School Community:


    Welcome to the website of Crescent Elementary School, a 2020 National School of Character. 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.  


    As principal, my first priority is 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 secure. Following proper procedures and being diligent is key! Your cooperation and understanding in this endeavor will contribute to making Crescent a safe learning environment. 


    The academic programs here at Crescent are rigorous and strong, and I will continue to work with our dedicated staff members to make them 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 we will get back to you. Should there be an issue that requires my personal attention, I can be reached at 201-445-0690 or by email cannicib@waldwickschools.org.  


    I look forward to working with all members of the Crescent school community to provide the best possible education for your children. "We Shoot for the Stars at Crescent School!"
