Dear MPTCS Scholars and Parents:

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!  As I enter my first year as Principal at Marion P. Thomas Charter Middle School, I am so excited about the opportunity to lead our school.  Having served as an educator at MPTCS for the past six years, I am truly committed to the values of our village and I am determined to make our school a center of educational excellence for each and every scholar. 

Our motto this year is, “I am here on purpose, with purpose!”  This motto expresses the commitment that everyone entering our building is dedicated to ensuring that learning is at the forefront of all that we do.  Through a productive partnership between scholars, parents, teachers, and staff, this motto will be our reality and our scholars will have the rewarding academic and social experiences that they deserve.

By the end of the year, we will be celebrating the academic gains of our scholars and they will be closer to college and career readiness.   It is my vision that each and every scholar understand that through hard work, their dreams will become their reality.

Thank you for entrusting Marion P. Thomas Charter School with your education, one of the most valuable assets you will obtain. Working together, your child will be well on his or her way to becoming a scholar who is academically and socially equipped to complete in the global society of the 21st century.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if I may assist you with any of your concerns.  I can be reached at (973) 792-0060 x. 1001 or via email at
