Message from the Executive Director & Superintendent:


We are now in the 2nd half of the 2023-2024 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 the 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 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 upcoming schoolwide events! 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 next major schoolwide events are: The 5th Annual “Kings Who Read” ~ Dr. MLK Jr. Literacy Event, on January 26th , “Black History Month” culminating event on Feb. 29th , The 100th Day of School on Feb. 2nd ,“Read Across America” & Scholastic Book Fair from March 1st through March 8th with the “Queens Who Read” Literacy Event as the kick-off to our “Women’s History Month” events! These are just a few of the many meaningful opportunities for parents to participate in their child’s education! We look forward to seeing you here at the school for all or most of these school events.

Expansion to Grade 5 is also a primary goal again 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 all RCCS families. Thank you for the 68 parent letters of support for expansion that accompanied our application for expansion and to all the parents who gave spoken testimonials at our Parent Advocacy Meeting on Nov. 14th! Your support and partnership are always greatly appreciated.

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

Yours in Learning,

Dr. Ledford
