Principal Message

School is open!  I hope that you have had a safe, restful and enjoyable summer. 


As a shared partner in your child’s education, I invite you to visit the school to discuss questions or concerns you may have relating to your child.  I look forward to meeting you and welcome your support and partnership for an outstanding school year.


As Principal, my goal is to establish a positive school culture and educational programs conducive to student learning and development.   In collaboration with working parents, I will seek to cultivate positive behavior, student and faculty teamwork, and increase communication with parents for improvement in the overall school culture.  I will initiate and lead programs to provide concise information and clear expectations to professional staff, students, and parents.  My belief is that students should be aware of the choices they make and the natural consequences associated with their decisions.  Students should be held accountable in a consistent and fair manner.


As per NJ State requirements we will conduct one fire drill and one lock down each month, twice a year we will have an evacuation drill.


I wish all of you a healthy, productive and exciting school year.


Rahim Graham
Principal
