Message from Dr. Mazzoni

Happy Wednesday Team,

Back to School Night

Just a reminder for all teachers to report to the gymnasium for a 6:30 pm start to Back to School Night. I will introduce each grade level team and etc. during this time. There are three 15-minute sessions tomorrow starting at 7:00 pm. Please share all your handouts/presentations with me via email or hard-copy.

New Jersey Student Learning Assessment (NJSLA) Parent Letter

We are preparing to do a mailing by the end of this week to the families of students that participated in last year’s NJSLA administration. A letter will accompany the Individual Student Reports (ISRs); one for ELA and one for mathematics. The letter will be shared with you shortly.

Staff Meeting

The first staff meeting is scheduled for Monday at 3:30 pm in the library. The agenda will focus on the NJSLA results.

Field Trips

I’ve had a number of conversations with staff about this year’s field trips. The Department of Education shared an excellent resource for teachers to use in planning out trips. Below is information on to be a helpful resource for teachers. On, formerly, teachers can search for field trips by:

• State/City

• Curriculum areas

• Admission (Free, Fee, and/or Title I support)

• Distance from your location

• Grade Level

• Day and Overnight trips

The Field Trip Directory also has:

• Field Trip Lesson plans (to help maximize the trip experience for students)

• Grants for Field trips

• Service Learning Field Trips

Curriculum and Instruction

All Teachers should schedule a time with Michele to review curriculum for their grade/subject areas. This meeting will include receiving a hard copy of the curriculum that you will be responsible for until June. These documents will be used to reflect on the curriculum, add to the curriculum or just check off that it is accurate. The documents will be signed out and collected at the end of the school year.
