Dear Newbridge Road Families,

As principal, my main goal is to create a safe and supportive learning environment in which each student receives exemplary education while achieving his/her best academically, socially and emotionally. I recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. As partners- parents, students, teachers, staff and administrators- we share the responsibility for our children’s success. I view parents/guardians as equal partners in providing our children with meaningful educational experiences and I truly believe that communication is the key to doing so. Together, we will continue to build upon the excellence of our school community and provide the best for the children of Newbridge Road Elementary School.

The district’s mission states that it is essential for us “…to inspire all students to be confident, passionate learners with the courage and skills to lead their lives with integrity, while contributing to our global community with creativity and compassion.” It is with effort that we will strive to unlock the true potential of each and every student. In the words of Maria Montessori, “Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world.” Together we will grow our children to transform this world and be the leaders they have the potential to be!
 
The faculty, staff and I will work diligently to create the educational foundation upon which your children grow, while keeping the district’s mission and core values at heart. I am looking forward to a great year of social, emotional and academic growth, as well as building the skills of diligence, resilience and perseverance. These skills will prepare your child for middle school, high school and beyond. I welcome you as partners in your child’s learning and hope you will be a familiar face around the building.
 
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. One of the strongest attributes of the North Bellmore School District is our relationship with the community, and I plan to foster that connection during my tenure as your Principal.
 
Most sincerely,
Denise Fisher, Principal

Newbridge Students Learn to Love the Earth

Students grabbed clipboards and pencils and headed outside on April 23 for an Earth Day scavenger hunt around Newbridge Road Elementary School.

Fourth graders in Dawn Teti and Caitlin Pugliese’s class learned about ecosystems and renewable and non-renewable resources in science in advance of their scavenger hunt. Students had to find certain objects that corresponded to these topics.

For ecosystems, they were on the lookout for pollinating creatures, such as bees and butterflies, and also searched for blooming flowers. They also easily found renewable resources, like the sun and the wind, and noticed machines that use fossil fuels for energy. Fourth graders did their best to find as many of the 12 items on their scavenger hunt lists.

Second graders in Jennifer Campbell’s class had discussions about the different acts they could take to help save the planet, such as recycling. They also discussed the resources that plants need for survival. On their scavenger hunt, each student picked up a blade of grass, a leaf and a rock. Back in the classroom, they then measured these objects.

Kerri Maxwell’s second graders made bird feeders from pipe cleaners and Cheerios, which they hung outside of the school. They also planted Shasta daisies in small pots filled with soil, which they will keep in school for a few weeks to provide with sunlight and water. With the right amount of love and care, Ms. Maxwell said the flowers should bloom just in time for the children to bring home for Mother’s Day.
