PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

February 6, 2015

 

Dear LVM Family,

This month we are celebrating Black history month by recognizing the heritage, accomplishments, and culture of African Americans in the United States. Black history and culture is a part of the American fabric and as such our curriculum is designed to reflect and emphasize the contributions and achievements of African Americans and how these factors influence our history, economy, and culture.

As you walk the halls of L.V. Moore you will be transported back in time. The displays echo the struggles, triumphs, and accomplishments of the men and women who fought for the freedoms we enjoy today. Our students’ work exemplifies their understanding of the events in history (i.e., the civil rights movement, Bloody Sunday) that shape us today. Students have shared stories about the Little Rock 9, Flo Jo, Shirley Chisholm, and other influential African Americans, including politicians, musicians, scientists, authors, inventors, and athletes.

There are a number of supplemental activities that are currently taking place and are planned throughout the month of February. The sixth graders are reading Russell Freedman’s Freedom Walkers, the story of the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott that launched a nationwide civil rights movement. Students created newspapers detailing the events leading up to the movement. On February 13, the 6th grade students will be attending a viewing of “Selma” which depicts the 1965 Selma to Montgomery voting rights march led by Martin Luther King Jr., James Bevel, and Hosea Williams. The viewing will be partially funded by the PTG and the L.V. Moore Student Activity Board. In addition, on February 20th, the school will be hosting a gospel concert featuring musical stylings of our very own Orlando Vick and his group, Divine Glory. Lastly, Ms. Ockimey and Ms. Roberts will be hosting the “Yes We Can” Black History Celebration assembly as a culminating activity on February 27th.  This assembly will highlight some of our most talented students who will present poetry, vocal, and dance routines. Karen Callaway Williams, world premier tap dancer, will headline the assembly.

The outcome of the black history program hopes to encourage students connect to their past, celebrate diversity, and develop a greater understanding of the importance of differences and commonalities within each of us.

"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!"
