Principal's Message


Dear LVM Family...

It is hard to believe that we are already to this point in the school year; time has flown by so quickly. As we continue to work together as partners in education, please stress the importance of the following with your children at home as we do here at school:

Make school a priority. This is their full-time job, and it really comes down to two main goals. 1. Get the best grades you possibly can. 2. Stay out of trouble.
Often, it is hard to make mature decisions when there is peer pressure involved. However, it is imperative that students make decisions that either help them get good grades and/or help them stay out of trouble. These are messages that students receive consistently at school. Providing the same types of messages at home can help them be more successful.

I am pleased to report that we saw significant academic growth in our PARCC scores and academic indicators/goals from the NJ Department of Education. Last year, our median student growth jumped from the 32nd to the 48th percentile in Language Arts and from the 28th to the 42nd percentile in Math. Similarly, Hispanic students, African-American students, children classified as Economically Disadvantaged, and English Language Learners all had excellent academic-growth scores. As a school, we met 11 of the 12 academic indicators.

While there is still a lot of work to do, and while this is just the beginning, we are very proud of our students and our teachers for these gains. Also, Ms. Weber and I both want to thank all of our LVM families for their outstanding support. Let's keep up the great work in 2019! 

Thank you and have a blessed holiday season and Happy New Year!

Craig Messmer, Principal
