The Teachers, Child Study Team Members, Administrative and Custodial staff routinely go above and beyond for our children and families.  They strive to make education challenging and enriching, while offering encouragement and support through distance learning and many unknowns. With your generous donation of $25, we invite students, parents, and families to recognize a teacher or staff member who has impacted their lives.

Teacher and staff recognitions will be posted to the Honor Wall which can be found on the FPEF website at http://www.fpefnj.org.  In addition, teachers will be sent a digital certificate informing them of their honor.

Mrs. Regan and

Ms. Zurbach

Mrs. Regan and Ms. Zurbach went above and beyond this year for their students. When you visit their classroom, the walls are covered with “norms” and “affirmations” which encourage empathy and respect. I loved their whole vibe. When they came to visit Cate in the last day of school, I saw a glimmer in my daughter’s eyes that I had not seen since distance learning began. Thank you for always encouraging Cate’s passions. Have the best summer!!!

Love, The Elefante Family

Thank you, Mr. K for a FUN year in 4th grade math. You made a sometimes difficult subject a blast for Mark, always went above and beyond and you are a great role model for the boys. As parents of 3 boys who all had you for their 4th grade teacher at Brooklake, we will hold on to the fond and fun memories of 4th grade forever!

Laura Perillo

Mrs. Alcuri

Mrs. Alcuri, thank you very much for the quick turnaround to inquiries from the students and parents and for always providing a solution. Your dedication minimized anxiety during these unprecedented times.

The Rodriguez Family

Mrs. Marissa Perlee

The loving ways of teachers like you are the difference between teaching and educating. Thanks for teaching Tramaine, educating him and empowering him to always give his best. Classrooms can survive without iPads and computers, but never without inspirational teachers. Thank you for being the irreplaceable teacher that you are. You are amazing!

Tasha L. Bias and Fred Cooper

 Mrs. Ocejo

Mrs. Ocejo is patient, approachable, and responsive.  We have been grateful for the one-on-one calls she has with Corina to review lessons, and as parents we love the smile on Corina’s face when she sees her teacher on the Zoom call.  Thank you, Mrs. Ocejo!

Alexis and Scott Seubert

Ms. Regan and

Ms. Zurbach

Ms. Regan and Ms. Zurbach have both shown a great deal of support and dedication to Kaeden during this time. We have appreciated their empathy, compassion, and capacity to extend themselves during this difficult moment.

Thank you,

RMS Teachers and Staff

Thank you to all of the teachers, staff, and administrators at RMS for working so hard to help get the kids through distance learning. We appreciate you!

The DeTitta Family

Brenda Cochario

For advancing Maggie’s Spanish in one year more than we could have hoped!

The Dolan Family

Mrs. Powers

Very often the “specials” teachers are overlooked for recognition. Mrs. Powers is a caring and compassionate teacher. She is down to earth, never critical or judgmental, and treats the kids like adults, not children. For that reason the students find it easy to relate to her and feel comfortable coming to her for advice or just to bounce things off of. She is a true mentor and valuable resource to the students of RMS, not to mention funny too.

Katie Shallis

Jayme Russo

Thank you for your hard work and dedication this year. We had a great time at the chemistry challenge. Francesca said, Thank you for making learning fun!”

The Pallone Family

Ms.Enderle and

Mr. Letchinger

Distance learning is new to both school and family. Thank you very much for your great preparation for the lessons and classes. Also thank you for your kindness on the understanding and support when problem occurs. It is really a pity to end Grade 5 like this . Robert will miss both of you!

Robert Lai’s Family

Mrs. Eveland

Mrs. Eveland because she takes to time to check in with my son and makes sure he understands the lessons.

Suzanne Ditacconi

Mrs. Rotella

Mrs. Rotella, thank you for your positive energy and innovation on the daily Read Aloud. Your dedication helped our child’s engagement with distance learning which is not an
easy task especially for younger children.

The Rodriguez Family

Miss Grice

Distance Learning is difficult for both the children and their families and as you probably would agree, it is much more for students with IEPs.

But with your presence, support and care, most of our fears are turned into hope and optimism as well as excitement. We are happy to take a bigger role in our son’s learning journey.

Again, from the bottom of our hearts – Thank you!
