PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

April 17, 2015

Dear LVM Family,

At the end of this month, students will again participate in PARCC standardized testing. The first round of testing, in March, went very smoothly, and we anticipate that this “end-of-year” test will be equally positive. Throughout the year, your child’s teachers have planned, taught, and assessed lessons that have prepared our students for the rigorous demands of PARCC.

You should not feel any undue pressure to “cram” for this test at the last minute. In fact, the best thing you can do is probably make sure that your child does not feel any anxiety about this assessment. They should eat a healthy breakfast, get a good night’s sleep each evening, and come to school on time so that they are fully prepared to do their best. The testing schedule is as follows:

  • Grade 5: April 27-April 29 (make-up testing on May 1 & the weeks of May 11 & 18)
  • Grade 6: May 4-May 7 (make-up testing on May 8 & the weeks of May 18 & 22)

As always, please feel free to contact your child’s teachers or the main office at school if you have any specific questions that need to be addressed. There are also a wealth of resources on the Internet to better familiarize yourself with the structure and types of questions that your child is likely to encounter.

Next Tuesday, April 21st, will be a busy day at LVM. First, report cards for the third marking period will be distributed to all students on that day. Please be sure to check with your child to review their grades and progress with them.

We will also have an important Quality School Review from the New Jersey Department of Education on that day. NJDOE will be visiting LVM to discuss the school’s progress and observe a variety of classrooms throughout the day. We have had a similar visit in each of the past two years, and both of these visits have gone very well. Currently, we are in the process of organizing all of the requested documentation for their review. Other than that, it will be a normal day of school for our students; they will probably not even notice anything other than a few adults with clipboards in the building. As soon as we receive feedback from NJDOE we will share it with you. Thank you!

…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...
