Mr. Peter Mastrangelo
Welcome to Bergen Boulevard and Shaler Academy! I am proud to serve as the Interim Principal of Bergen Boulevard and Shaler Academy and look forward to collaborating with each of you over the course of the school year. As I begin my 23rd year in the District and my 7th full year at Bergen Boulevard School and Shaler Academy, I look forward to working with the dedicated staff to provide the best possible educational program for our students. We remain committed to ensuring that Bergen Boulevard and Shaler Academy provide a learning environment with rich experiences that enhance the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development of each and every child. We will work diligently to ensure that the children enjoy many academic successes while also instilling in them a sense of motivation and purpose at our school and in the community.
With a focus on social emotional learning, high standards for learning and teaching, small group instruction, and community engagement, it is our goal at Bergen Boulevard and Shaler Academy that all students will succeed. Students develop their reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills through a balanced literacy model, develop their mathematical minds through a differentiated Envisions Math program, and discover the world around them through the Knowing Science program and our social studies curriculum.
The 2022-2023 school year promises to be an exciting one for our students and staff as we continue to provide a safe, intellectual learning environment that will inspire students to become creative problem solvers and critical thinkers.
Within each classroom, students have immediate access to SMART Boards, Promethean Boards, Chromebooks, iPads, and document cameras. Our teachers use this technology as a tool to acquire critical thinking skills, as well as forming more universal connections with others to reach beyond our classrooms to enhance learning.
Using resources such as Rethink, IXL, Raz-Kids, Scholastic Magazines for Kids, Mystery Science and Smarty Ants our teachers are able to supplement and individualize their instruction to meet the needs of all of our students.
Formative and summative assessments are used to help drive the instruction. Teachers use formative assessments to guide student-learning daily, while summative assessments such as benchmarks and end of unit tests are used to help evaluate learning and instructional programs.
On behalf of the Bergen Boulevard and Shaler Academy faculty and staff, I invite you to join us in making this the very best experience for our children.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
