Fall Newsletter 2014


****  REGISTRATION  ****

There will be ECC, Kindergarten,
and New Student Registration
on Tuesday, April 14, 2015,
from 8:45 - 3:00,
at the Sherman Elementary School.


 There will be full-day Kindergarten classes available at each of the three grammar schools in Roselle Park for the 2014 – 2015 school year!  In an effort to avoid overcrowding, we will be limiting the number of students to 22 per class.  Please be advised that this may result in your child attending Kindergarten at another school before returning to your home school for the remainder of your child’s grammar school years.  Families will not be separated.  Siblings of students currently in school will attend the same school.

All children who will become 5 years of age on or before October 31, 2015, and who are to be enrolled in Kindergarten in September 2015, and all students eligible to enter First Grade in September 2015, who will become 6 years on or before October 31, 2015, should register at Sherman School, 375 East Grant Avenue, Roselle Park, NJ, on Tuesday, April 14th



A Message from the Roselle Park Police Department

The entire Roselle Park Police Department extends their gratitude to both first grade class members of The Robert Gordon Elementary School. The first grade classes of Mrs. Jean Erbeck and Ms. Kristen Mingoia selected the members of the Roselle Park Police Department to be the recipients of their “ACT OF KINDNESS”. The first graders prepared individual “Survival Kits for Police Officers” for each member of the Police Department. Special Thanks to Mrs. July Bennett, Mrs. Allison Kanarek and Mrs. Jessica Gilchrist for making the event happen.  

Patrolman Joshua Medrano, Sergeant Keith Wintermute, Detective Richard Cocca and Detective Sergeant Dominick Frino had the honor of visiting the classes to receive these creative and witty gifts on behalf of the entire department. The officers were then able to speak to the classes and tell them a little about themselves, their duties and what makes their jobs so rewarding.

We are pleased to announce that
Robert Gordon School
is officially a
Kindness Certified School
Students and staff from Robert Gordon will be participating in the Great Kindness Challenge during the month of February. Each student and staff member will decorate a hand print, showing how he/she can show kindness. These handprints will be added to the Great Kindness Challenge, whose goal is to beat the Guinness Book of World Records for the “Most Kind-Hearted Handprints.” Robert Gordon students and staff will also be involved in many other activities focused around kindness this month. We are so proud of our students for displaying their kind-hearted spirits towards their peers, teachers, and others in the community.

Please make every effort to get your children to school on time.  All children should be here no later than 8:20 a.m. Every child should line up with their class and enter the building together.  Our day begins at 8:20.  Your son or daughter should not be running into school at 8:30.  This is not fair to your child, their teacher or the students in the class.  I thank you for your cooperation in getting your sons and daughters here before the 8:20 bell.


 The Teddy Bear is the official mascot of Robert Gordon School.  In 1909 when Robert Gordon School was built, Theodore Roosevelt was president of the United States of America.  His nickname was Teddy.  Legend has it that he once saved a bear cub.  A stuffed, toy bear was named after him.
