    SCHOOL PERCEPTION SURVEY 

     
    As part of our ongoing initiative to improve our District, we have developed a perception survey for each school.  The purpose of this survey is to receive information regarding parent satisfaction with various aspects of our schools. While you are encouraged to include your ideas and suggestions, please do not include specific names of students or teachers.  Parents are an extremely important part of our school community and your opinion does make a difference!  Click here to take the survey by February 12th.

    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).

    YOUTHTALK PROGRAM AT RHS
     
    YouthTalk, a Global Nomads Group initiative, is a yearlong civic engagement program designed to connect young people in the United States the Middle East and North Africa while building cross-cultural awareness and global citizenship.  Ramsey students in Mr. DeMartino's Political Science class have taken active roles in this Youth Talk, and have been paired with a class from the Arabian Pearl Gulf School, located in Manama, Bahrain.  Throughout the program,  students will engage in intercultural dialogue, explore media bias, gather resources and build leadership skills as they identify and address issues that are important to both nations. Utilizing technology and 21st century skills, Ramsey students will connect with students from Bahrain to discover how they can positively influence relations between North America and the Arab world.

    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...

  • 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.
