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 Have a Hand in Changing the World

Newbridge Students Have a Hand in Changing the World thumbnail179982

Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., second graders at Newbridge Road Elementary School in the North Bellmore School District thought about ways in which they could change the world.

Students in Kerri Maxwell’s class learned about the life and achievements of the Civil Rights leader and discussed how he showed courage to make positive changes. They then listened to the song, “With My Own Two Hands,” written by Ben Harper and performed by Jack Johnson. Children then traced their own two hands on paper, decorated them and wrote about ways they could make a positive difference in the world. Some of their ideas included picking up trash to make the Earth cleaner, showing kindness and helping others in need.

Every class in the school also created an “I Have a Dream” poster, with each student contributing a piece. The colorful pieces featured inspirational words and messages.

Engineering Knowledge Flies Through the Air at Newbridge

Fourth graders used their ingenuity to help lead a turkey to safety in a Thanksgiving-themed engineering activity at Newbridge Road Elementary School.  

On Nov. 24, students in Dawn Teti’s class read “How to Catch a Turkey” by Adam Wallace, then built catapults to help the fictitious turkey escape. Each student received a limited amount of supplies including craft sticks, rubber bands, two spoons and tape.  

The young engineers had to think like professionals by planning and sketching their designs before building. They could only use the materials that were provided, so tapping into their critical thinking and problem-solving skills were a must to have success. Students also used their knowledge from a science unit on simple machines earlier in the year.  

Once their catapults were constructed, students began testing them out. Each child taped a paper turkey to a penny to launch. Ms. Teti said if the turkeys didn’t go very far, then go back and refine their catapults. For example, each student had a light plastic spoon and a heavy plastic spoon, so they were encouraged to explore different ways to use the provided materials.   

 

Newbridge Students in a Geography State of Mind

It’s about 4,000 miles from Alaska to Florida and 5,000 miles from Maine to Hawaii, so fifth graders covered a lot of ground in learning about the 50 states at Newbridge Road Elementary School.

As part of the fifth grade social studies curriculum, students study United States history and geography. During a recent activity, they learned about the different states and regions, from East Coast to West Coast and everything in between. Teachers Michelle Hooker and David Lopez provided every student with a puzzle map of the country to put together, using only an unlabeled paper map of the United States as their guide.
