Message from the RCCS Executive Director / Superintendent:

Welcome back to a new 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 new school year as we are confident that this year will be both productive as well as fun for your children! In addition to our rigorous academic programs, we will continue to focus on our scholars’ social emotional development through the implementation of our grant-funded Social Emotional Learning Fun & Wellness (S.E.L.F. & Wellness) program which includes mindfulness art lessons and weekly yoga! We will also return to monthly field trips this school year and more of our school wide events will be “in person” here at the school. We encourage all our parents to please join a school / parent committee as we are always looking for parent participation 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 school year through our Class Parents Program, monthly Parent Advisory Group (PAG) meetings, and volunteering to serve on a School / Parent Committee. During our Back-to-School Nights on Wed. Sept. 21 st for Gr. K-2 and Thurs. Sept. 22 nd for Gr. 3-4 we will have sign-up sheets for parents to select a committee to join this school year!

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 will apply again this fall for expansion to Grade 5 and will keep our families informed of the NJ State Department of Education’s decision as soon as we are made aware in January or February 2023.


I look forward to seeing all our RCCS families at Back to Nights on Sept. 21 st and 22 nd and at our Family Fall Harvest / Trunk or Treat event on October 28 th ! Thank you for choosing RCCS!

Yours in Learning,
Dr. Ledford
