Welcome to the John F. Horgan Elementary School Web Site. My name is Donna Peluso, and I am the principal of this fine elementary school. Please allow me to tell you a little about our school by asking you to click on the links attached to The Principal's Page.
Each month, parents might read about what is going on in our school as well as join me in celebrating our school family milestones in the Monthly Parent Newsletter. A Calendar of Events is also included to help you remember some important dates during the month.
I think it's always helpful to know about the school in past and present times. The School Profile will tell you a little about our history, school governance, demographics, and even our school accomplishments.
Our school has a Report Card just as your child does! Under the link, School Data, you'll find information showing how we have performed in statewide tests as well as what the staff, children, and parents think about us in our SALT Survey.
After looking at our School Report Card, you may ask yourself, what is the school doing to increase student achievement? The link, School Compact For Learning, is our school plan for improvement. This document will tell you our school goals for the year and the action plans to achieve them. I encourage you to read this site and hope that you will e-mail me at Contact Mrs. Peluso with your comments and ideas.
For your information, the link, Understanding No Child Left Behind Act, explains the new federal law that is changing education as we know it. Please take a look and read about what educational goals and measures of accountability we have set for ourselves as professionals and the children we serve as well.
Finally, you will find a FAQ link. Many parents have the same questions, but sometimes do not have the opportunity to ask them. I will be updating and changing this page often, so please take a look! If you ask me questions through Contact Mrs. Peluso, I will be happy to share your concerns with others under FAQ.
Thank you for coming to our site, I hope the information presented here is helpful to you and your family.
