November 17, 2016


On November 15th, Pam Gunther, owner of Fit and Fun Playscapes, met with the fifth and sixth grade G&T students from Schools No. 1 and No. 3 to support this year’s “Art of Play” unit of study. While this is a design challenge for the fifth graders, the sixth graders were invited to attend because they will be providing input and insights as the teams work through their designs. Mrs. Gunther will continue with follow-up “work” sessions during the project, which will culminate in team presentations to a panel of judges. The “winning” team’s design will be manufactured by her company and the game/activity stencil will be painted on the playgrounds of Schools No. 1 and No. 3 for all to enjoy!

Thank you to the Fort Lee School District for supporting this project!

School One Receives "Little Free Library" from FLHS National Honor Society
June 23, 2016
The National Honor Society has long been known as an organization that values scholarship, leadership, service, and character among its members. Each year local chapters select community projects that reflect these four pillars, and seek to fill a need within the greater community. This year’s cohort of students worked on a year long project dedicated to supporting community literacy during the summer months. The students assembled, decorated, and dedicated four “Little Free Library” lending libraries to each of the local elementary schools just in time for summer vacation. Each Little Free Library will allow school aged children access to reading materials all summer long, even if they are not able to get to the town’s public library. The Little Free Library program was started as a passion project 2009 with one free standing library in Hudson, Wisconsin. Since that time the program has become an international, non-profit with libraries spanning the globe. The mission of the Little Free Library program is “To promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide and to build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations.” Little Free Library How it Works: “Take a Book - Return a Book” “A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. They come in many shapes and sizes, but the most common version is a small wooden box of books. Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share. If you want to give a few books, simply put them in a Little Free Library book exchange near you.” Students and families are encouraged to share books they love with the local community by donating well loved copies. Little Free Libraries require no library card, no book fines, and no limits on how many books can be borrowed at time. Each local library at Schools 1, 2, 3 , and 4 were designed in conjunction with the building librarians and principals to reflect the interests and values of each building and local community. Members of the the Fort Lee community are encouraged to peek inside the libraries this summer when they are traveling around town, and see what each unique library has to offer. Books can be borrowed from one library and returned to another. The only rules of the Little Free Library system are to be kind to the lending libraries, and to leave as much as you take. Each local Little Free Library has a unique charter number that will be added to the international Little Free Library locator map. Book drives and donation days will be sustained by future National Honor Society cohorts to maintain the initiative. For more information about the Little Free Library project please go to www.littlefreelibrary.org or contact Ms. Baker at bbaker@flboe.com.
2015-2016 Teacher of the Year: AnnMarie Corcione
May 19, 2016
AnnMarie Corcione has been a teacher at School One for five years teaching Pre-k through first grades. As a special education teacher she has worked with a variety of students in various settings. At this point her greatest accomplishment has been the ability to help children feel success in the general education classroom. She has developed behavior plans and multi-sensory learning experiences to help them with their academics, emotions, and social skills. She has watched students struggle with letter sounds and then see them put the sounds together to read a word. The moment her students feel success and not frustration, is that "ah ha" moment most teachers wait for.  For this and much more the School One staff is proud to recognize AnnMarie Corcione as our "Teacher of the Year".

School 1 School Performance Report Summary
April 15, 2013

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Following this letter, please find a summary overview of the New Jersey Department of Education Performance Report for your child’s school.

The new School Performance Reports build upon and replace the previous annual School Report Cards and provide schools and the public with information about school performance in the 2011-2012 school year.  These reports, as outlined in New Jersey's NCLB flexibility request, were developed with the input of stakeholders across the state in both informal conversations and through a workgroup that included representatives from the NJEA, New Jersey Principals and Supervisors Association (NJPSA), New Jersey Association of School Administrators (NJASA), New Jersey School Boards Association (NJSBA) and the New Jersey Parent Teacher Association (NJPTA). As compared to the former School Report Cards, these reports provide a significant amount of new data in order to present a more complete picture of school performance, with the ultimate aim of helping schools and stakeholders engage in local goal setting and improvement. Among others, this includes metrics at all grade levels to identify the extent to which students are demonstrating skills and behaviors indicative of college and career readiness.

In addition, the reports include for the first time a "peer school comparison" for each school in the state. This tool replaces the outdated and often inaccurate District Factor Group (DFG), and compares schools with similar grade configurations that are educating students with similar demographic characteristics such as free/reduced lunch eligibility, limited English proficiency or special education program participation. This data provides information about how similar schools are performing to help identify strengths and areas for improvement. Together with additional data available in NJSMART, we hope that this publication provides the opportunity to have meaningful conversations around goal setting at the school and district level for the coming year.

For the first time, the Performance Reports include data on whether students are on track for college and career including the percentage of students chronically absent, students taking at least one AP test, and the percentage of students taking the SAT and PSAT.   Measures of student growth are also included for the first time, utilizing the Student Growth Percentile (SGP) methodology.  SGP creates a measure of how students progressed in grades 4 through 8 on the NJASK language arts literacy and math assessments when compared to other students with a similar NJASK test score history.  A short video explaining the SGP methodology can be found here: http://www.state.nj.us/education/njsmart/performance.

As educators have long stated, looking at proficiency levels alone do not provide a complete picture of school performance because students and schools all begin at different starting points.  By partnering that proficiency data with growth information, these new reports can help educators identify where, for example, students are demonstrating low proficiency but high growth, or, conversely, high proficiency but low growth.

The school performance reports will be released to the public in the coming weeks.

Rosemary Giacomelli
