September 2017

Welcome Back!  The summer has flown by and we’re ready to welcome back students and teachers to a new academic year.  I hope everyone has had the summer they dreamed of, whether it was traveling the globe or reading a stack of books in a hammock in the backyard.  I’m looking forward to hearing about everyone’s adventures.

Our summer here at RVS has been spent in planning, cleaning, moving classrooms and planning.  Did I mention planning? 

We're very excited about infusing more STEAM into our curriculum with the addition of a new "Maker Space" classroom.  Makerspaces provide hands-on, creative ways to encourage students to design, experiment, build and invent as they engage in science, engineering and "tinkering."  Mrs. Link will be running our Makerspace in a classroom this year and her classes will make full use of the new equipment. 

New textbooks in alignment with the Next Generation Science Standards have arrived for 4th grade science classes and new social studies books in 1st through 3rd grades will help students see their world in a more up-to-date way.  We are continuing with the Apex online Geometry course and are pleased with the results from last year's pilot program.

To best utilize our creative and dedicated staff, some changes in assignment have been made:  Mrs. Lehman (formerly Ms. Frazza) is moving from 1st grade to 7th grade language arts; Ms. Martino is moving from 3rd grade to 5th grade language arts; and Mrs. Gemma moves from 5th LA to 6th LA.  We are excited to welcome back Mrs. Laing who will be teaching 2nd grade.  Some teachers have also moved locations for best space utilization and also to facilitate articulation within subject matters. 

Back-to-School Nights have been scheduled for September 13 (PreK-4) and 14 (5-8).  I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there.

We thank you for your continued support of Rockaway Valley School and look forward to everything that the 2017-2018 school year will bring. 

With Falcon Pride,


Christian Angelillo, Ed.D.
