Message to the Parents
From the Superintendent's Office
Dear Brielle Parents and School Community:
Our Mission statement reads: We, the members of the Brielle School Community are dedicated to developing the unique abilities of each child; inspiring the achievement of personal excellence. We envision our pupils entering the work force as adults prepared to deal with an ever changing and challenging environment. We want to create lifelong independent learners who will be committed to utilizing their knowledge in a positive manner.This school year our initiative to increase the one to one use of chrome books in the classroom is a reality. All sixth, seventh and eighth graders carry their Chrome books from class to class during the school day. In fourth and fifth grades all students have lap-tops in their classroom for all academic classes. Currently in kindergarten through third grades, there are four Chrome books in every classroom to use during center time. On November 19th our Brielle Education Foundation is hosting the Fall Festival at Manasquan River Golf Club. All proceeds go directly to enhance technology in our school.
STATE REPORT CARD DATA
Brielle School continues to maintain very high student achievement. There continues to be high expectations in all areas of the curriculum. A review of the State Data on this Report Card reveals high-test scores and average class sizes at a financially responsible cost. Our cost per pupil is one of the lowest in Monmouth County and the one of the lowest of sixty-seven similar districts for the entire state. The district also remains hundreds of dollars below the average administrative costs in our geographical area.
Brielle School encourages community involvement in many areas. The 2015-16 school year started with over 75 students participating in a summer enrichment program sponsored by our PTO with courses in art, Photoshop, Legos, music and sports all taught by our own Brielle teaching staff. In addition, Brielle Recreation hosted over 140 students during the summer in a variety of sports, trips and activities. Our IC Hope Team continues their partnership with the FoodBank of Monmouth/Ocean Counties to continue to create activities for students to Change Hunger. During the months of September, October and into November, the IC Hope team has planned bake sale, pasta drives, a Pumpkin decorating contest, Cupcake Wars, Boo-Grams, Trunk-or-Treat, movie night and many other activities to raise awareness about hunger. Students plan to prepare 25 food baskets for their thanksgiving food drive to be distributed to families in our own town.
The Ice Cream Social, Back to School Dance and Back to School Nights along with Brielle Day helped make an incredible opening for the 2015-2016 school year. I would like to express my gratitude to all who helped organize these wonderful events and for the continued support from staff and community.
