Principal's Corner

Principal’s Message

Greetings BOES Bobcat H.E.R.O.’s;

Welcome to Barack H. Obama Elementary School’s page.  Our school’s motto is Be a H.E.R.O. Helpful, engaged, respectful and on-task.  This year, we are transitioning to a more student-centered learning environment.   We will continue reinforcing our leaner’s positive accomplishments through the Obama Behavior Intervention (OBI)/PBSIS program.  Our school has teamed up with the New Jersey State Department of Education to formulate a strategic plan to facilitate our growth this year.  This Annual School-wide Plan for 2019 guides all of our actions in order to maintain a collective focus. 

BOES welcomes Vice Principal Mrs. Zakiya Del Orbe. Mrs. Del Orbe was previously vice principal at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School.  She also taught at BOES.  At BOES we support positive behavior through praise and recognition.  Obama Behavior Intervention (pronounced ‘Oh-Bee’) is our behavior program, which applies to building administration, staff, students and the community.  Remember to always, offer praise before making an observation or applying an intervention.  The purpose of our work is always build, not destroy.  Our theme at the school is, At BOES, we are H.E.R.O.’s: Helpful, engaged, respectful and on-task. 

Barack H. Obama Elementary School’s Governor’s Teacher of The Year for the 2018-2019 academic year is second grade teacher Adrianne Pringle.  Mrs. Pringle represents a talented group of professionals at BOES. 

Our building’s instructional programs are supported by district curriculum & instruction supervisors Ms. Anna Maria Graf, Ms. Kimmy Taylor, Ms. Shante Middleton, Ms. Lauren Jackson and Ms. Janice Kroposky.  Our building instructional coach and professional development facilitator is Mrs. Dana Breckenridge. Our technology coach and student BNN news producer is Mr. Christopher Fletcher. 

Thank you to all who continue to work diligently to make BOES a quality educational facility.  This year, we have a tremendous staff assembled to support our goals.  We are ready, we are BOES! 

Proudly Yours,
Reginald Mirthil, Transformational Principal
