PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Dear LVM Family,

Let’s all hope that the worst is behind us in terms of winter weather. I think I speak for just about everyone at LVM when I say, “Bring on spring!” I appreciate your patience, flexibility, cooperation and understanding as we have braved through multiple storms this season, which have caused us to make many adjustments in school to keep things running as smoothly as possible. The entire LVM staff has really been terrific in terms of their teamwork and commitment, so I want to formally acknowledge them as well.

Throughout February, students were treated to a number of school-wide programs that focused on Black History Month. In addition to the myriad activities within the classroom, we also had a gospel-choir concert and a large-scale assembly, “Celebrate,” that included student readings, choir and band ensemble performances, and a professional tap-dance exhibition. All in all, the students had a fabulous time throughout February learning about Black History; we will continue with this theme on Monday, March 3rd for Literacy Day by focusing on the literature and major personalities and influence of the Harlem Renaissance.

March should be a very busy month for us at school. We will begin our “Testing Thursdays” NJASK-prep program on March 13th, and this will run through May 1st. “Testing Thursdays” is an initiative that we started last year to help prepare students for NJASK testing, which takes place in early-mid May. Our instructional coaches in math and language arts work with teachers in core-academic areas (math, language arts, science, social studies) to develop activities and assessments that closely mirror NJASK in terms of format, time constraints, expectations, directions, etc. Feel free to contact your child’s teacher for detailed information and/or to find out how he/she is progressing.

March also marks our Spring Open House. This year, we have reserved Wednesday, March 26th from 6-8 PM for families to visit and speak with teachers. Additionally, we will be holding a parent-information session on NJASK and PARCC (next year’s standardized test) during the first portion of the evening. This is a critically important event to attend; please be cognizant of flyers and all-call messages that will be coming home throughout March regarding Spring Open House.

Finally, we have our International Night/Open Mic Night (sponsored by PTG) on Friday, March 28th. Last year’s event was fabulous, and we are looking forward to something even bigger and better this year! We need cooks, entertainers, and volunteers to make International Night a success, so please help out in whatever manner you can; we look forward to seeing you on March 26th and March 28th (busy week!) for these two important events.

Thank you for your support and cooperation!
