Principal Message For The 2017/2018 School Year- Mr. James Manco

Welcome Back!  I hope this finds you having an enjoyable and relaxing summer.  Richard Butler School will reopen for the 2017-2018 school year on Wednesday, September 6, 2017 at 8:00am.  The faculty and staff are continuing to prepare the school and classrooms for an exciting year of learning.

Richard Butler School is a place where we believe all children can learn. We are dedicated to presenting curriculum that will challenge all our students.  Our primary mission is to provide a safe and secure educational environment that promotes academic excellence and nurtures the social and emotional well-being of all our children.  We believe that collaboration between parents and the school is critical to children’s success.  Sending your child to school every day, monitoring your child’s homework, checking your  child’s academic progress on the parent portal, and asking your child what they learned at school each day are just a few things that you can do to help in this effort.

Personally, I am very excited for the start of the school year. As I have said many times, it is a privilege to be able to work with the children, faculty, and parents at Richard Butler School.  Please do not hesitate to contact me at 973-492-2079 or stop by my office if you have any questions or concerns.
