Dear Parents and Guardians:
 
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year. How quickly summer concludes and our thoughts turn to eagerly preparing for the commencement of another school year. This year, Sojourner Truth Middle School faces many new changes: new principal, new assistant principal, new head secretary, some new teachers and some reductions in staff. Even in the midst of change, staff members stand ready, willing and able to provide your child with a rigorous, meaningful, engaging and efficient education. The custodial staff has been working diligently to make our building gleam.
 
As the new principal, I look forward to meeting you and your child. I also look forward to celebrating the class of 2017 along with all that they will accomplish this year. As parents and guardians, you are the first and most important teachers in the lives of your children. We must form a partnership with you to promote academic success and the social/emotional growth of your child as we prepare them for high school, college and beyond. Please take time to read through all of the important dates below and other information that will be sent home to prepare for a successful school year.
 
During the school year, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teachers and/or counselor with any questions, comments or concerns you have. Of course, you are welcome to contact me at (973) 266-5665 or email me at m.burton@eastorange.k12.nj.us. Enjoy those last rays of sunshine!!! I am looking forward to an excellent year.
 
Yours in education,
 
 
Monica D. Burton, Ph.D.
Principal
