A message from our Principal 

Dear parents, guardians and community members,

I know everyone is happy now that springtime is finally here. Although the snow, we had in March was not really significant like January or February, it was just as cold.  Just a reminder that we (Roselle Public Schools) exceeded our yearly allotment of snow days by one day Therefore, plan to come back from spring break in April just a little earlier. Staff and students must return back to work and school on Friday, April 25, 2014 at regular time.

During this month, eighth grade students started it off learning about a future opportunity offered at Abraham Clark High School (ACHS) in Roselle. This opportunity is the Junior Reserve Officer Training Course (JROTC). The recruitment classes for JROTC have continued to grow since we have partnered with ACHS over the past three years.

The students were able to participate in a rare treat on March 14, 2014. It was Pi Day. Many activities transpired in our grade 7 math classes related to pi – 3.14... Five students comprising grades 7 & 8 attended Kean University’s Annual Youth Leadership Conference. Our Spring Open House brought out parents that wanted to learn more about the instructional program and activities being offered Grace Wilday. While they were here, everyone also received a special and nice dinner for coming out.      

One of the items covered during the Spring Open House was test preparation strategies. Since the NJASK will be administered during the week of May 5, 2014, it is important for you to take these strategies strongly into consideration. Please review the strategies located later in the newsletter to increase the chances of your child performing even better but also decreasing his/her test taking anxiety.

To end off the month on March 31, 2014, the Abraham Clark High School counselors spent an entire day meeting the grade 8 (rising grade 9) students and scheduled their classes for the 2014-2015 school year. This was a great opportunity for students to have a personal discussion with their counselor about questions they had in preparation for next school year. Students will get an opportunity to spend an entire day at Abraham Clark High School on the Grade 8 Orientation Day during the month of June. 

Since we are three quarters through the school year, I still hope that all parents are reviewing and discussing academic and behavioral performance with their child(ren). It is my aspiration that every student utilizes the fourth marking period as a new starting point to begin on the right foot and maintain it.        

Educationally yours,
