Principal's Corner

Welcome Back

My Name is Nancy Torchiano and I am principal here at G. Austin Schoenly Elementary School.  Our little school with a big heart services both the Spotswood and Helmetta communities.  Our goal is to help your child fall in love with learning and provide a solid foundation for a successful educational career.  

Our highly qualified teachers and professional staff are passionate about their role in your child’s educational journey.  Our students are challenged, inspired and supported through the learning process every step of the way.  This year we will continue to Cconnect, Learn, and Collaborate with our students, staff and families.  

Additionally, we will further promote technology in the classroom by providing opportunities for your child to evolve as a digital learner.   Through cooperative learning groups, independent center work and project based learning your child will define themselves as a digital citizen of the world.  This year we will be using QR Codes to communicate with our families.  Throughout the year we will post new QR codes that will give you access to our curriculum, a glimpse of what’s happening in our classrooms, and even some interesting facts about Schoenly School.   

Here at Schoenly, we believe in the power of partnerships.  School, home and community are a powerful combination which can help propel your child toward success.   I urge you to get involved.  We love board approved volunteers.  Thank you for your time and your dedication to your child’s success.  I look forward to a great year!
