Superintendent's Message
Dear Members of the Tabernacle Community,
We cannot rest on past laurels if our schools are to remain high performing for all students. Our schools are the anchor of our community and when they are excellent, they serve to attract new residents and help to stabilize home values. As always, we continue to focus on maintaining a high quality school district in a fiscally responsible manner.
Our initiatives for achieving excellence in education for 2013-2014 are: 1.) Utilizing our newly established partnership with the College of New Jersey's Center for Excellence in STEM Education for implementing an integrative Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (iSTEM) course for all middle school students in grades 5 through 8; 2.) Continuing with our efforts for assessing student growth in all grade levels through the use of comprehensive benchmark assessments; 3.) Entering year two of our four year professional development plan for enhancing language arts literacy instruction  for all students, and; 4.) Continuing to develop and implement a full array of school guidance services for students in all grades as required by the NJ Department of Education.
Please visit our district website as we work toward achieving our District goals for this school year.

George J. Rafferty
Superintendent of Schools
