We are so proud of Ho-Ho-Kus Principal Vicki Lindorff who was honored as a Hometown Hero by Congressman John Gottheimer on Dec. 15! These awards are given twice a year to recognize exemplary individuals from the Congressional Fifth District who are bettering the lives of others through their work or volunteerism.

Principal Lindorff has led the ECLC Ho-Ho-Kus school for almost 50 years and has an incredible legacy of success. She started as a teacher in 1977 and was promoted to principal in 1981.

She has been a fearless advocate for her students with special needs and constantly comes up with innovative ways to ensure they achieve their highest potential. Principal Lindorff is a dynamic inspiration to staff, students and parents. She has created a true family, and it shows every day, through the caring felt throughout the school!

She has developed a strong partnership with the local public school through a program called the Ripple Effect, in which the public school students come to ECLC to share in special events, such as graduation and holiday performances. The program was recognized by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office with a Be Wise award for promoting respect and ending bias. The school has a full calendar of Spirit Days, award assemblies; art shows; sibling and grandparents days; dances and more.

Congratulations to our tireless Ho-Ho-Kus school Principal Vicki Lindorff!
