Teacher's Message

Congratulations to the 4th Grade for all their efforts and progress that they made this year!

Have a Great SUMMER! Stay safe and have FUN! Remember your summer work, IXL, and your supply list can be found under RESOURCES.  

Congratulations to my LA 5th graders for MOVING UP to the 6th Grade. Awesome Job!!!

See you all in September. Love, Mrs. Essman


To the incoming 4th Grade: Here is a Special Note! Supply List and Summer work including IXL are located under RESOURCES. Please make sure you complete the work. Passport to NJ is due in May 2020.  Looking forward to be working with you.

Welcome to 4th Grade!  I am so happy to be your 4th Grade teacher.

My goal, as your teacher, is to work with you to maintain your progress and potential in school.  I am committed to your development and growth. Each day we will learn something new together. Let’s have a wonderful year filled with awesome learning experiences and lots of fun activities.  I am looking forward to working and learning with you.

For your child’s safety, please inform me by writing a note or by e-mail when someone other than you will be picking up your child.

If possible do this by 9 a.m., it is very difficult at times to check emails all day long.

Here is another important safety rule about the school parking lot:  Please  pick up your child in the parking lot by the fence. If you take your child off the dismissal line, please inform me. It is for your child’s safety that I ask you to follow these simple rules.

Thank you to all the parents/guardians who go to the appropriate place at dismissal time. Supportive parents are lifesavers!

Thank you for your time, support, and cooperation.

Best Regards,

Mrs. Essman
