A Message from the Principal

I hope that you have had a safe, restful and enjoyable summer.

We have developed a Student Handbook, which will be applied, consistently in all our classes.  A discussion will be conducted in each class in an effort to explain the contents of our attached Handbook and to stress the importance of good conduct in a school setting to our students.  We recognize the crucial role of parents in guiding their child's development of positive attitudes and behavior.  Therefore, parents will be contacted to assist us in helping their child develop desired behavioral patterns and positive attitudes.

Please take the time to review the contents of the Handbook and discuss it with your child.  It is essential that the home and school emphasize the same standards regarding behavior and academic achievement if our children are to reach their full potential. 

As per NJ State requirements we will conduct one fire drill and one lock down each month, twice a year we will have an evacuation drill.

I wish all of you a healthy, productive and exciting school year,


Christine M. Sidwa
