Welcome to Roosevelt Elementary School! I am excited to be your principal and feel very fortunate that I have the opportunity to work in the community that I grew up in and live. At Roosevelt School, we provide a rich environment that helps our students to reach their fullest academic, emotional and social potential. We are proud to have an excellent teaching staff, and a full complement of educational specialists and support staff to assist students in meeting this goal.
We offer a balanced literacy approach that includes direct teaching of skills within a rich, learning environment. We teach our students to be critical thinkers, in-depth readers and fluent writers. We build an understanding and appreciation of the natural world and the community in which we live, through our science and social studies programs. Our students learn the language and use of mathematics as they develop their number sense, and as they find solutions to math problems.
Students participate in art, music, health and physical education and have access to the services of our media specialist and a wonderful library of reading and information resources. All of our students take an introduction to Spanish class, as well. In addition, our technology specialist instructs students in computer curriculum areas such as Google Docs, keyboarding, Powerpoint, word processing, graphics and responsible Internet use. We have a modern lab with 36 computers! We also have a chromebook lab and an additional chromebook cart with 30 brand new chromebooks for teachers to utilize with their classes.
Ridgefield Park Public Schools have received statewide recognition for excellence in education. We will continue to strive toward an even higher standard of excellence in the future.
