Dr. James Heinegg Welcome to the 2015-2016 School Year


It is an honor and a pleasure to offer best wishes to the Caldwell-West Caldwell community for the 2015-2016 school year.

In addition to welcoming back the many students returning from last year, we look forward to greeting the incoming Kindergarteners and other students just beginning their educational careers in our district.

Several educators are joining the district this school year as well, and we likewise look forward to welcoming them as colleagues.

We have many exciting plans for the 2015-16 school year, including the completion of several bond referendum projects and implementation of a variety of important curriculum projects at all grade levels. We will be communicating about these activities throughout the year, so please check the district’s web site and social media on a regular basis.

Best wishes to the entire Caldwell-West Caldwell community for much learning and success in the coming months!


Dr. James Heinegg, Superintendent
