Principal's Corner

Welcome to my Principal’s Corner!  I am the very Proud Principal of School #3 in Little Falls, NJ.  We are a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence within a NJ Lighthouse District so we have a lot to be proud of.  

Our small school houses third and fourth grade and functions like a school family.  We meet together every Friday in a schoolwide meeting to regroup as a school, to celebrate each other, set goals, and practice mindfulness strategies.  Our teachers work together in departmentalized teams which allow them to support our students as experts in their subjects.  We utilize formative assessment and focus on data collection & analysis to help support our students by targeting their needs and building their skills.  Our standards based report cards help clearly communicate student learning expectations and achievement to families at home. 

None of our work and achievements happen without our village.  Through various community supports such as the School ⅔ PTA, Little Falls Education Foundation, and the LF Municipal Alliance, we are able to provide our students with enriching opportunities that help facilitate their growth as students as well as good citizens.  Our relationship with the LF Police Department is one we are extremely proud of as they keep us safe and teach us so much about making good choices. 

If you have any questions or concerns, I am always available.  Please email me at ndilkes@lfschools.org or call me at 973-812-9512 x3404. 


Be well,

Principal
Curriculum Coordinator
