Welcome to Saw Mill Road School! I am happy that you have stopped by for a visit to our website. Saw Mill Road is a K-6 school in the North Bellmore School District. We have a population of almost 700 excited and motivated students and a faculty of 65 committed and passionate teachers. Supporting our students and teachers is a wonderful group of aides, custodians, office staff, and administrators. No school would be complete without the community it serves and the Saw Mill community is incredibly proud and supportive of their school.

Here at Saw Mill we work hard every day implementing the K-6 curriculum and strive to reach the inspiring goals of our district’s mission statement. As an elementary school, we have our students for the beginning steps on the passage through their academic life. While ensuring we create a warm, fun and energetic school environment, we also pay careful attention to the fact that students are learning the foundational skills that will set them up for a lifetime of learning.

Whether you are a Saw Mill family, a local resident, or just someone checking out our website, I know you will feel the spirit and energy that pervade our school.  Wishing you a wonderful day!

Jeff Rosof

Saw Mill Students Hear a Tale of Tradition

The first Friday of every month is a special occasion at Saw Mill Road Elementary School. It’s a school spirt day, where students are decked out in blue and white attire, but it’s also the monthly principal’s read aloud.

The read aloud, led by Principal Jeffrey Rosof and Assistant Principal Daniel Madden, serves a dual purpose. It promotes both a love of reading and togetherness. This year’s theme at the school is “All Are Welcome,” and each month’s assembly has a message related to community, diversity and inclusivity.

On Jan. 5, students gathered in the all-purpose room as Mr. Rosof and Mr. Madden read “The Lucky Grape: A New Year’s Eve Story” by Tracey Kyle. The book is centered around a family’s New Year’s Eve tradition in Spain. The book was also projected on the screen so students could see the illustrations.

Sixth grader Saray Beltran Torres began the program by reading a poem in Spanish. Mr. Madden, who also read the poem in English, noted that many students at Saw Mill are multilingual, which is part of the diversity that is celebrated and valued.

Mr. Rosof said that the message for students is that while they may have many different family traditions, they come together in joy to form the Saw Mill Road community.

They also share many traditions together at school, like the monthly spirit days, concerts and field day.

“I want students have a sense of community and belonging,” Mr. Rosof said. “I hope that with the help of our teachers, we can connect the dots to celebrate our diversity.”

Saw Mill Students Celebrate Community’s Diversity

The student body of the North Bellmore School District hails from many towns, states and countries, and sixth graders from Saw Mill Road Elementary School proudly shared the diversity of the community at the Dec. 14 board of education meeting.

A multilingual presentation opened the meeting, with six students speaking in both English and their native languages, including Creole, Mandarin, Spanish, Ukrainian and Urdu. Students touted the benefits of being bilingual and attending school with children from many different cultural backgrounds.

“One of the wonderful features of North Bellmore is we are a diverse community,” Principal Jeff Rosof said.

Assistant Principal Daniel Madden then introduced the students, who came up one by one. Children spoke about themselves, their families, their backgrounds and their journeys to North Bellmore, while also connecting their remarks to the district’s mission statement and core values.

The speakers included Maryam Khan, Mysha Liu, Elijah Marcelin, Edwin Escobar Miranda, Anastasiia Nikitina and Saray Beltran Torres. They were supported in the audience by their parents, siblings and teachers.

The presentation concluded with each student saying “thank you” in his or her native language. Each month’s board meeting begins with a presentation by sixth graders from one of the district’s five elementary schools. Mr. Rosof said that Saw Mill wanted to “focus on who we are” by highlighting students on a personal level.
