PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

December 1, 2014

 

Dear LVM Family,

I hope everyone had a restful and enjoyable Thanksgiving break with family and loved ones. This time of year always goes by so quickly, so it is important to enjoy every step along the way. In school, it is always a busy time; we have only three weeks of school in between Thanksgiving break and the December Holiday break, and students will have a lot to do to stay busy in all of their classes. Please be sure to keep in close communication with your child’s teachers so that small problems can be addressed quickly and kept under control.

I am happy to report that LVM is close to meeting its obligation from the New Jersey Department of Education regarding student and staff surveys. However, we are still out of compliance with our parent survey. We need a minimum of 25% participation; currently, we are at approximately 15%. You can help by logging into the website listed below and taking the survey. It only takes about 5-10 minutes, and your input is very valuable in terms of future decision-making for our school.

Please review the following link for more information and/or to take the survey:

(Please note that all surveys must be completed by December 5, 2014)

The PTG did a great job last week collecting non-perishable food items to be donated through Thanksgiving baskets for the holiday. In fact, we had so much that we were able to keep some in reserve for donation to a local food pantry for this month. The students did a great job and were very excited to help. Special thanks to the students in Ms. Goldberg’s and Mr. Gayles’s homerooms; they sorted and organized all the food as part of some real-world classroom learning that involved math, language arts, and social studies. Finally, thank you again to all the LVM families who were able to come out for parent/teacher conferences…we had our best turnout in years as we continue to build for our children’s futures!

…Mr. Messmer

Congratulations Mrs. Bregman
2013-2014 Teacher of the Year for the Borough of Roselle & LV Moore
"As Principal, I am pleased to announce that Ms. Lisa Bregman, 6th grade math, has been selected as the Borough of Roselle & L.V. Moore Teacher of the Year for 2013/2014! Ms. Bregman teaches 3 sections of 6th grade math and was selected by her peers, receiving nearly 40% of the total staff vote by herself. She is a skilled educator who challenges her students to think and perform at very high levels. Last year, she was our top-performing teacher in terms of NJASK proficiency, with a success rate of 97% passing along with a large percentage of students achieving at the Advanced Proficient level. In the classroom, she utilizes a wide range of technology and is a meticulous planner. Often, students view videos at home, created by Ms. Bregman as a key component to her "flipped" model of classroom instruction. In my 15+ years in education, she is one of the most gifted and devoted teachers I have had the pleasure and honor to work with...congratulations to Lisa Bregman on a much-deserved honor!" Sincerely, Craig M. Messmer, Principal  READ MORE...
