    Class
    On Tuesday, March 31, Mrs. Poelstra, along with staff and students, shared the many ways in which the 21st Century Learning Initiative is being carried out at Smith School.  Emphasizing learning experiences that take students beyond the walls of the classroom, several examples which integrate 21st century skills with real world applications were shared.  From research-based projects, to college laboratory experiences, to community outreach, Smith School students have an array of opportunities to use the classroom as a starting point for making meaningful connections to their world.

  • PARCC PARCC TESTING FAQs
     
    Federal and state laws require New Jersey students to take an assessment that measures the language arts and mathematics skills that are necessary for college and careers.  Standardized testing has been a part of New Jersey’s assessment policy for many years.  This year’s standardized assessment, PARCC, is aligned with the Common Core, which was adopted by New Jersey schools in 2010.  The PARCC assessment is designed to gauge students’ progress in achieving these new standards.

    GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING SERVICES EXPANDED
     

    At the Board of Education meeting on Monday, December 15th, Mr. Michael Biggan, Director of Guidance, presented an overview of Guidance and Counseling services in the district as well as a snapshot of recent programming related to substance abuse awareness and prevention. He emphasized the role our guidance and counseling support staff plays in the lives of Ramsey Public Schools.  All students are supported by masters' level counselors and social workers from the upper elementary through high schools.  The counseling staff plays important and diverse roles in the lives of students.  Their chief role is to develop relationships with all students so that the students know there is a caring, supportive helping professional in the building should they face obstacles in school, with their peers, or at home.  Read More...

    MRS. ALTIERO AT DODGE POETRY FESTIVAL 
     
    In October, Newark's vibrant downtown Arts District was the site of the the biennial Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival with over 50 internationally and nationally renowned poets. The Festival is neither an academic symposium nor a writing conference. Through a wide range of poetry readings, storytelling sessions, and musical performances, participants are invited to spend four days immersed in our most ancient arts. One day is reserved for high school students to attend. This day also meets specific Common Core State Standards. This festival is a passion of Mrs. Altiero's and she was thrilled to be included as one of the staff members interviewed.  Watch the video (the featured segment begins at 14:35).

  • School notifications (phone/text) used for change in school schedule run off the contact check boxes in your child's portal. The emergency contacts listed in your child's portal should not have the text/phone boxes checked unless you want that contact to receive the early morning school notifications.  Unchecking the boxes will have no bearing on phoning the contact for illness or other general pick up if parent cannot be reached or deems necessary. Check your portal for each of your children and confirm the notification settings. Save any changed data.
