Principal's Corner

Principal’s Message


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 have teamed up with the New Jersey State Department of Education to formulate a strategic plan that will maintain a collective focus among our staff, students, parents and the community.  The Annual School-wide Plan (ASP) has set rigorous goals for our school community. 

  • 80% increases in math and English student performance
  • A minimum of 50% parental support
  • 50% decrease in student infractions

At BOES, we support positive behavior through praise and recognition.  We will continue reinforcing our learner’s positive accomplishments through the Obama Behavior Intervention (OBI)/PBSIS program.  OBI (pronounced ‘Oh-Bee’) is our positive behavior support program supported by building administration, staff, students and the community. 

BOES’ instructional programs are supported by district-level curriculum & instruction supervisors and building-level instructional support staff.  Thank you to our staff, parents and community who continue to work diligently to make BOES a quality educational facility.  We are ready; we are BOES! 

Proudly Yours,

Reginald Mirthil, Transformational Principal
