As Parent & Teachers in East Ramapo

  • We cannot allow the past to inhibit the future.

  • We believe that all students can be successful.

  • We must take responsibility.

The Problem

  • Middle School age students are vulnerable. They require a support system of both parents and teachers. However, sometimes it is difficult for us to keep in contact.

  • In today’s society the value of education is underestimated.

  • Due to busy schedules parents are unable to attend PTA meetings and other school events.

  • Education is not carrying over into the home.

Statement of Needs

  • We need to have parents involved.

  • We would like parents to be aware of the educational process.

  • We need parents to feel confident.

  • We need parents to be our partners.

Our Mission

  • To assist children in becoming successful learners.

  • To empower parents in their child’s education.

We can work together

  • Send an email to your child’s teachers. This will also give them a way to contact you. All teachers can be found on the school website. The following page includes a list of email addresses for the English department.

  • School calendars and website list all events. Check it regularly so you can plan in advance.

  • Each teacher has a website where they list assignments, projects, and due dates. You can also post a message for them.

  • All English teachers can be reached in the English Office at (845) 577-6336.
