SBOE Principals ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Welcome Back To School!

This summer, Secaucus Art Teachers, Doug Depice and Melissa Dargan Heintjes have been busy beautifying a part of our town near the New Jersey Turnpike ramp near Mausam restaurant.

Mr. DePice is a 40-year veteran of the Middle/High School Fine Art Department. Ms Dargan-Heintjes, once a student of Mr. DePice, now a colleague, is in her second year teaching Art to students at Clarendon School.
Beginning last year, the pair began a mural-painting with students in their respective schools.
they were thrilled to apply their craft at Mayor Gonnelli’s request in a much larger and hotter outdoor setting. After receiving input from the Mayor, the artists decided on painting portraits of individuals who helped make the world a better place and reproduced works by Vermeer, VanGogh and Matisse. They also put their own creative spin on portraits of famous individuals such as Walt Whitman and the Afghan Girl with the piercing blue-green eyes who graced the cover of National Geographic.

The Secaucus School District is proud of the accomplishments of those who serve in its educational community and provide a splash of beauty to our town.
