Principal's Message

                                           

 

Dear Durban Avenue Parents and Students,

As we begin the 2014-2015 school year, the staff of Durban Avenue Elementary School looks forward to welcoming your returning or first time student to our school. As part of the Hopatcong School District, we hold high expectations for success and achievement for all our children. On behalf of the staff and district, I would like to welcome you to the Durban Avenue Educational Family.

A new school year is always exciting.  Our focus will be on providing each child with new challenges that will result in a rewarding school experience.  Academic emphasis on the core content areas of reading, language arts, science, social studies, and math will remain a priority as well as providing a learning program that builds on each year to reach local and state standards.  Instruction in the fine arts, technology, and physical education complete our program providing each student with the opportunity to develop areas of interest and skill.

The school day begins promptly at 7:55 AM.  Walking and parent drop-off students should not arrive any earlier than 7:40.  Partner with us teaching your child responsibility by being on time to school and having great attendance.  Children will be dismissed starting first with the bussed students at 2:20 and then the walkers and pick-ups.

Our Back-to-School nights are Monday, September 22nd for Grade 4 and Tuesday, September 23rd for Grade 5 beginning at 7:00 p.m.  I encourage you to join us at school activities and participate in our school programs.  Please utilize the updated district website, www.hopatcongschools.org/da  regularly.  I encourage you to join us at school activities establishing strong foundations and being positive role models for your children.           

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call.  I look forward to working with you and your child throughout the school year to provide a productive and safe learning environment that supports student success.

 

Sincerely,

Jeffrey Hallenbeck
