HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ -- Elementary school students were honored at the March meeting of the Hasbrouck Heights Board of Education in Kiefer Auditorium. Students on the Jump Rope Team and Trep$ Club were recognized for recent achievements.

Lincoln Elementary School Principal Joseph Colangelo spoke about the jump rope team, comprised of third, fourth and fifth graders. He thanked the Board for honoring the students, each of which received a Certificate of Achievement.

"I would like to especially thank Mr. (Michael Cebulla, our coach, for our jump rope teams. We have two," said Colangelo. "One of our parent chaperones came back from our most recent trip and said she was just so happy to see the genuine connection and the genuine relationships he had with his jump ropers, or players.  And that she was really inspired by their relationship. I've very proud of him."

Their coach, Mike, was excellent when talking to our students about not only jumping, but about getting good grades so that they can achieve...."
