Congratulations to Our Teacher of the Year!
Carmelina Giannantonio
I have worked as a Special Education teacher in Fort Lee for 17 years.
As a Special Education Teacher, I have had the opportunity to work as both a Resource and Inclusion teacher for grades kindergarten through sixth. My greatest attribute is my dedication and belief in my students. I instill confidence in them and they know that with hard work and perseverance they will accomplish their goals. Watching my students grow academically and socially has truly been a rewarding experience and why I choose education as my career.
Congratulations to Our Educational Services Professional of the Year!
Cara Solazzo
I began my career in Fort Lee thirteen years ago as a sixth-grade teacher.  After that, I had the opportunity to train as a Reading Recovery teacher where I was able to work one-on-one with first-grade students in the areas of reading and writing.  This year, the Fort Lee school district implemented a new literacy program called SMART READERS (Start Making A Reader Today.)  I am currently working with small groups of first and second-grade students with an emphasis on reading, writing, phonics and word study skills.  I can honestly say there is nothing more rewarding than watching a child take flight as they discover a love of reading.  As a life-long lover of books, I cannot imagine a position that would ever bring me a greater sense of joy and satisfaction than being a reading teacher. 

D.A.R.E. Basketball Practices
School #4 will be preparing for the upcoming D.A.R.E. Basketball Games which will take place in March. Basketball practices will take place each Wednesday from January through February from 3:30-4:30PM. We respectfully ask that students be picked up at 4:30pm since darkness occurs early. 
Good Luck!!!
