Mission

Our community reached consensus on what we valued most for our students: helping to develop independent learners capable of personal and professional success and helping children find and develop their passions. We worked to take those values and turn them into something identifiable – a Portrait of a Graduate highlights that all students should strive to become Compassionate Citizens, Fearless Trailblazers, Collaborative Innovators, Problem Seekers and Solution Makers, and Global Communicators.

Academics

Along with our Portrait of a Graduate, we involve children in a rigorous, appropriate, developmental approach to learning in order to meet the challenges of the future. Children are taught balanced literacy, mathematics, social studies, and science, which are aligned to the NJSLS. Our school values the education of the whole child and students’ learning is supported through a mindset for learning, including perseverance, resiliency, and empathy.

Clubs

Students benefit from participation in a vast array of extracurricular programs including an art show, curriculum night, continental math club, intramurals, music concerts, safety patrol, sign language club, as well as PTA-sponsored clubs.

Programs

The PTA sponsors an aftercare enrichment program, and our River Vale Educational Fund sponsors a Robotics program for students, as well as beforeschool yoga clubs. Our school also offers band and chorus programs for students in grades 4 and 5. The district also has an excellent before and afterschool program sponsored by the River Vale Educational Fund – the A.C.E. Program.

Teachers

The staff engages in professional learning throughout the year. The district has 3 professional development days. The school has three faculty meetings per month, which focus on teaching and learning. Teachers are involved in collaborative learning groups using new resources. Staff works with the PVRHS District’s Regional Curriculum Office for professional development and other consultants such as Metamorphosis Math and Teachers College at Columbia University.

Supports

The school provides a variety of supports to students who require additional help academically, including the Intervention & Referral services (I&RS), supplemental instruction, and supports and services for students with disabilities, as well as English Language Learners. The school also believes in providing differentiated instruction to all students to their learning is personalized to the maximum degree possible.

Health

The school uses the Educate 2B mindfulness program. There are several staff members trained in mindfulness, breathing, and yoga to support students. Yoga classes are run before school and incorporated into the daily classroom. This training from Educate 2B founder Allison Morgan represents an innovative and important way to help address mental health for all students in the district. In addition there is a school guidance counselor to assist students.

Parents

The school believes strongly in our partnership with parents to best support students. The school’s PTA, along with the River Vale Educational Fund provide invaluable supports in terms of programming, fundraising, and advocacy. The school attempts to reach parents in a variety of ways including social media, district-wide informational sessions, school-based advisory committes, and parent portals into the Genesis student information system, along with the Canvas learning management system.

Facilities

The school works hard with the PTA, River Vale Educational Fund, and our community at large to maintain modern, state-of-the-art facilities for our students. Recent district renovations include improving security at all building entries. At Woodside Elementary School, the media center, music room, and playground were all recently updated. At Roberge Elementary School, a new playground was installed and the computer lab was renovated. Holdrum Middle School''s media center was also recently updated. All district renovations are completed to support 21st century learning and to maintain student safety.
