PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

January 5, 2015

 

Dear LVM Family,

I hope everyone had a restful and enjoyable holiday break with family and loved ones. As we come back to school, I truly hope that it is with a renewed sense of the importance of education and of making good decisions that will enable us to be successful.

One of our main points of focus over the remainder of the year will be preparation for the upcoming PARCC tests. These standardized tests, which are replacing NJASK, will take place in March and again in May for our 5th and 6th graders. On January 13th, we will host a parent-information session to help understand this new assessment. Please look for more information about this evening, which will be combined with a PTG meeting; we hope that everyone can attend and be a part of the productive conversations.

Just before the break, the LVM selection committee named Mr. Mark Ludwig as the school’s Teacher of the Year and Ms. Dgyna Lorquet as the school’s Education Services Professional of the Year. Mr. Ludwig teaches 6th grade science, and Ms. Lorquet works as our Social Worker. I think both Mr. Ludwig and Ms. Lorquet are well deserving of their respective honors and will represent L.V. Moore Middle School and the district of Roselle in high regard as they are considered at the county level. Congratulations to them both and thank you to Ms. Coombs and Ms. Batts for their assistance throughout the selection process!

Naturally, we will be very busy over the second half of this school year. We have a number of terrific events planned (please see below), and we need everyone’s support and cooperation to make 2015 truly memorable for all the right reasons. I encourage you to support our school by attending PTG meetings, keeping in close communication with all of your child’s teachers, and by working closely with them at home to help improve skills in reading, writing, math, and critical thinking. If you’re not sure what to do, contact your child’s teachers for ideas that bridge the gap between home and school. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation!

…Mr. Messmer

Kean University Diversity Council
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...
