BME FIELD DAY HAS BEEN RE-SCHEDULED FOR FRIDAY, MAY 31
Wednesday, June 12
New Jersey's approved Elementary and
Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Flexibility
Request requires that the State implement an
accountability system with differentiated
recognitions, interventions and supports.
Section 2F of the Application charges the
the New Jersey Department of Education
(NJDOE) with providing incentives
and supports to schools that are not
classified as a Priority or Focus School.
It is required that our district develop an
action plan articulating how we will
address the needs of student
populations that did not meet their
progress targets on the
New Jersey ASK.
Below please find Action Plans for Betty
McElmon - Language Arts.
Our School Philosophy
The climate in a Primary Elementary School should be one that nurtures students, staff and parents. Children must feel secure and safe in an environment that allows them to explore, make mistakes, learn responsibility and experience joy. I believe in a strong emphasis on direct instruction and experiential learning. Guided instruction and cooperative learning teach children respect and organizational skills. Technology is an important tool to enhance instruction and prepare our students for the future, but it can never replace a solid teacher.
A teacher that is a life-long learner will develop a program to use technology as a means of exploring and integrating the curriculum. Teachers should experience learning through self-evaluation. The Administrator should be a role model for learning and positive attitude. Students, staff and parents should feel pride when they enter our building.
