Principal's Message


Principal’s Message

It is with excitement that I welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year.  I am honored to lead such a dynamic school in a wonderful district. I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than 10 years, working with a variety of students ranging in age and abilities.  My most recent administrative experience was as Principal of Thomas Jefferson ELC, here in Ridgefield Park. I am motivated and excited to bring my skills as an educational leader to Roosevelt Elementary School.

It is my main goal to create successful relationships, working collaboratively as partners in education, ensuring your child's success.  Along with the amazing staff at Roosevelt, I will work diligently to build strong relationships with parents, students and community partners.  We will continue to focus on the mission and vision of the district, to grow our students physically, emotionally, academically and socially (P.E.A.S), in order for each student to reach their unique potential.

This year is going to be incredible as we continue to provide whole child experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections.   I look forward to a very positive and productive year together! As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors is excited to be at Roosevelt. I extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible.  Your involvement and support in your child’s education is extremely valued. My door is always open! Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year.

It is through our teamwork that each student at Roosevelt will meet their goals and have a successful and memorable school year.

Please be sure to read through our school rules below.



Mr. Matthew A. Perrapato
