ear Fellow Parents:

Welcome to Dorchester Elementary and Woodcliff Middle Schools! Your children will have the opportunity to grow and learn in one of the best school districts in New Jersey.  One of the many ways Woodcliff Lake schools continue to be premier educational institutions is through the support of the Woodcliff Lake Educational Foundation (WCLEF).

In addition to our wonderful teachers and faculty, what sets Woodcliff Lake apart from most local public school districts?

  • 21st Century Classrooms at Dorchester * new this school year *
  • Imagination (STEAM) Lab at Dorchester
  • STEM Lab at the Middle School
  • 5th Grade Math Lab with Chromebooks
  • Television Studio at the Middle School
  • Mac Lab, Tablets for Art, Electronic Science Scales, and so much more!

 These are just some of the recent grants WCLEF has provided to our schools. 

WCLEF is a not-for-profit foundation run by parents and its mission is to promote academic excellence in the Woodcliff Lake schools by providing funding for innovative and creative educational programs that fall outside of the traditional school budget.  The WCLEF has raised over $1.8 Million for the Woodcliff Lake public schools.  We raise money through a few big events each year, including the Charity Golf Classic, Movie Night, Family Dance Party and the Run for Education.  Enclosed is a flyer for the Charity Golf Classic, which will be held at New York Country Club on September 19.  We hope to see you there!     

Come join our team or just check out a meeting - it’s a great way to meet other parents and become involved in your child’s education!  We meet once a month at 7:30 p.m. in the Middle School Media Center.  Please join us for our first meeting of the year on Wednesday, September 11 at 7:30 p.m. in the Middle School Media Center. To learn more about what we do, check out our website at www.wclef.com or send us an e-mail at info@wclef.com.  We look forward to meeting you!
