• Welcome Back !

    Dear Families, 

    Welcome to first grade! My name is Mrs. DeMartini and together we are going to watch your child learn and grow in so many different ways this school year. This year marks my 7th year of teaching, all of those years I have taught right here at Forest Street School.  I graduated from Montclair State University with a BA in Early and Middle Childhood Education.

    In order for your child to reach his or her full potential I am going to need your support. Please make sure your child arrives to school on time everyday at 8:15. Students must be well rested and have eaten breakfast.  Breakfast is served every morning in the cafeteria starting at 7:30am.

    Students will be expected to complete homework every night. A homework log will be sent home every Monday with the week’s homework. A copy will also be available on my webpage. All homework assignments must be completed from the night before and in their book bags.

    I hold very high expectations for my students. They are always to try their best and never give up. This year you will see amazing growth in your child's reading and writing. First grade is a very important school year as it sets the foundation for learning. I am looking forward to an awesome school year!

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns via email demartsa@orange.k12.nj.us or at 973-677-4120


    Educationally yours,

    Mrs. DeMartini
