Hiring Time at REMS

  • REMS

    It's that time of year again for Roseland Montessori as students apply, interview, and train for their school jobs. Over the last two weeks students in grades 1st-6th have decided if they would like to have a leadership role in the school by selecting from one of the advertised job positions. Mrs. Rhonda Vaccaro, principal, spent time interviewing each student for his/her role and then she and Mrs. Kay Saragusa, Montessori Specialist, trained them for the position. Now all the jobs are in full swing and students are proudly "working" each day. With the help of Dawson Primes, the flag crew learned respect for the American Flag, as well as how to put it up, take it down, and fold it properly. Next time you are around the school and see students busily helping with school duties, you will know that these students are some of the ones that are learning great work ethic at such a young age in the Montessori program. Pictured is Dawson Primes and students, Landon Dufrene and Roszania Banks.
