PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 

September 30, 2014

 

Dear LVM Family,

We have made it through a very successful first month of school, but we will continue to have higher and higher expectations for our students in terms of the 4 A’s: Attendance, Appearance, Academics, and Attitude.

The new Student Fitness Center has been a big hit with our students, who have been utilizing it and learning all about the various equipment and how to properly use each machine over the past few weeks during physical-education classes with their P.E. instructors, Mr. Gonzalez and Mr. Sangiovanni.

Our PBSIS program (Positive Behavior Supports in School) has also been very successful so far. Students are earning opportunities to win fun prizes and rewards based on outstanding behavior. This program has helped transform the culture at LVM to a much more positive and friendly environment. The hallways are quieter, students are busier in classrooms, and the cafeteria is a comfortable and relaxing place for our children to enjoy lunch and quiet conversations in the middle of the day.

This upcoming month will be the start of our Read 180 literacy-intervention program as well as our After-the-Bell tutoring program (3:00-4:30; Tuesdays-Thursdays) in both math and language arts. Students eligible for either program have come home with information and permission slips, and we are confident that these initiatives will help to continue making progress for all students academically. If you have any questions or concerns about Read 180 or After-the-Bell, please don’t hesitate to contact me at your convenience.  

October will prove to be a busy month, as always, at LVM. Please make sure you refer  below for various events taking place in October. Thank you, as always, for your support and cooperation!

…Mr. Messmer

"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!"
