Tolerance & Respect Taught Through Archie Comics!
ASSEMBLY PROGRAM: NANCY SILBERKLEIT, Co-CEO of Archie Comics is returning to our school for the second year in a row. Students in grades 2-6 will have the opportunity to attend her wonderful presentation on October 22nd. We are thrilled and honored to have her back again!

Be More Awesome Assembly Program!
To "kick off" October being the Month of Respect, the students at School #4 were presented with an assembly that included a powerful anti-bullying message, as well as a fun approach to encouraging healthy choices! The students enjoyed the positive message from this wonderful program!

We thank the School #4 PTA for donating the funds to bring this great program to our school!
October...The Month of Respect/Red Ribbon Week
The Anti-Bullying Act established by Gov. Christie has deemed the first week of October as the "Week of Respect" for all New Jersey Schools. Fittingly, our character value for the month of October is "Respect" for the 2014-2015 School year. RESPECT will be celebrated the entire month in order to recognize the importance of this character value. Additionally, we will connect Red Ribbon Week activities to this theme.
Melanie Markarian - 3rd Grade
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new 3rd grade teacher at School No. 4.  I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts degree from Albion College, and taught for 5 years in Michigan. As I made the journey to New Jersey, School No. 4 became my new home.  I want to thank all of the staff, students, and parents for making my transition so welcoming. I am looking forward to an exciting year with the Fort Lee School District!
Donna Viducic - 4th Grade
 It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself as a newly appointed fourth grade teacher in School No. 4. I graduated from Saint Peter's College with a Bachelor of Arts in English and I received a Masters in ESL from Fairleigh Dickinson University. I also hold certifications in Reading, English, Bilingual/BiCultural Education, ESL, and Elementary Education. Therefore, I have had the privilege of working with elementary school students as well as middle school and high school students for 28 years. I taught English, Basic Skills, and ESL to students in Fort Lee High School and in Lewis F. Cole Middle School for the past thirteen years. My broad experience enables me to provide an optimal learning experience for my students and it also gives me a great sense of pride in the community. I'm truly grateful for the opportunity to teach in the Fort Lee School District and I'm enthusiastically looking forward to a successful school year.
Alisha (Stailey) Henry -6th Grade
Hello, I am Mrs. Henry.  I am a 6th grade In Class Support Teacher at School No. 4. This is my 9th year teaching. I have a Liberal Arts degree from Virginia Wesleyan College.  After graduation, I pursued my teaching career at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia.  I am certified in Special Education and Elementary Teaching K-6. I started teaching in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  I moved to New Jersey in June of 2012. I have worked in both Ridgewood and Ridgefield School Districts.  In my spare time, I coach cheerleading. GO PENGUINS!
Christine DeLuca-Kindergarten
I am thrilled to introduce myself as a kindergarten teacher at School #4. I am excited to begin the school year and look forward to working with the students, parents, and faculty at School #4.  I graduated from Montclair State University with a Bachelors of Arts in Family and Child Studies with a concentration in Family and Child School Setting K-6.  I completed my student teaching in a first grade class at School #1.  I spent the 2013-2014 school year as a third grade leave replacement teacher at School #1 and a first grade maternity leave teacher at School #4. I consider it a privilege to be a part of the Fort Lee community and hope for a long and successful relationship with the district.

SCHOOL 4 GARDEN IS TAKING SHAPE: We are very proud to announce the creation of our School 4 Garden. Our garden was an idea that developed at one of our Parent/Principal meetings. The idea has taken shape through the winter with the formation of our Garden Club, under the voluntary supervision of Ms. Michelle Rios-Fornes. Our Garden Club currently has sixty student members from 2nd through 6th grade. Parent volunteers will be constructing the garden this weekend lead by Mrs. Stefany Koslow a parent of one of our sixth graders. Our garden will provide an excellent resource for all of our students, K through 6th, to develop hands-on science and nature experiences and knowledge.


To School 4 from the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office: Congratulations! Your students are winners in the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office “Don’t Stand By for Bullying” contest. Simon Gak and Nicholas Chung at Fort Lee School #4, Mrs. Rizzo’s class, are the winning team in the 3rd grade category. We invite each student and one parent/guardian to a lunch ceremony at our SNAP conference on April 24, where we will acknowledge the winning entries.
