Message from the RCCS Executive Director / Superintendent:

We are now in the 2nd half of the 2022-23 school year here at Roseville Community Charter School! We are a “small but mighty” school where COMMUNITY and EXCELLENCE is our goal and the whole child is our focus! We are excited about our programs and plans for this next half of the school year as we are confident that this next semester will be as productive and fun for your children as the 1st semester was!

In addition to our rigorous academic programs, we will continue to focus on our scholars’ social emotional development through our grant-funded Social Emotional Learning Fun & Wellness (S.E.L.F. & Wellness) program which includes mindfulness art lessons and weekly yoga! We also have quite a few field trips planned and many school wide events that will be “in person” here at the school. We encourage all our parents to please help our school by playing an active role in school events and consider joining a parent committee as we know how important a strong home / school connection is as it relates to student achievement. Opportunities to actively participate in your child’s education will be ongoing throughout the rest of the school year through our Class Parents Program, monthly Parent Advisory Group (PAG) meetings, and volunteering to serve on a School / Parent Committee.

Our upcoming events such as “Kings Who Read” ~ Dr. MLK Jr. Literacy Event, “Black History Month”, The 100th Day of School on Feb. 3rd, “Read Across America Week” / Scholastic Book Fair from Feb. 28th – March 3rd, and “Queens Who Read” as the kick-off to Women’s History Month are all meaningful opportunities to participate in your child’s education! We look forward to seeing you here!

Expansion to Grade 5 is also a primary goal this school year, as we know how much our families and scholars enjoy being a part of the RCCS family; and expansion to Grade 5 would allow our scholars to remain with us for their entire K-5 elementary experience. We are awaiting approval from the NJ State Department of Education and as soon as we receive word in February we will inform our families. Thank you for the 58 parent letters of support for expansion that accompanied our application for expansion! Your support and partnership is greatly appreciated always.

I look forward to seeing all our RCCS families at the next school event! Thank you for choosing RCCS!  

Yours in Learning,

Dr. Ledford
