A Message From the Principal

Mr. Jeffrey P. Martens

Dear Parents and/or Guardians,

     I look forward to working with the staff and you, the parents/guardians, of Northvail School, to ensure the success of each child who steps through Northvail's door. I am veryfortunate to be at Northvail School where a plethora of cultures andethnicities exist.  As with any organization or “family”, an effort is needed on all of our parts to develop relationships that promote learning, self-discipline, understanding, acceptance and respect of individual and cultural differences.  It is important to remember why weare all here – for the benefit of the children.  Therefore, I encourage all of us to respectfully communicate with each other and most importantly, listen to each other so that we provide the children with all that they deserve.

     We at Northvail School are fully committed to instructional and behavioral excellence. We will be working hard to provide your child with the quality education that Parsippany has given to so many students over the years. You can support your child's education by talking to them about what they are learning,reinforcing the importance of self-discipline and responsibility,encouraging your child to appreciate and enjoy the excitement of learning and the thrill of an inquiring mind, and most importantly,praising your child for their accomplishments.

    Please read and review via hard copy or on the website the Northvail handbook, which provides valuable information regarding your child’s education.  I look forward to getting to know and working with your child throughout the school year.  Please call me if you have any questions pertaining to your child(ren) or our school’s operations.


Jeff Martens
