The definition of self discipline is as follows: 

Self discipline is the disciplined training of ones self with some kind of self improvement in mind. This is a trait used by athletes, artists and musicians and should be used by students in the same way. There is also an important underlying theme of self control. For personal happiness and social harmony we need to act and speak appropriately.

Here are some tips for working towards self discipline:
  1. Keep your personal space neat and organized.
  2. Throw away things that you really have NO use for.
  3. Practice self control when you get really angry.
  4. Do your chores and your homework WITHOUT being asked.
  5. Keep your promises to your family and to yourself!
  6. Express your feelings with appropriate words and or actions



1. Define the goal.*

2. Outline the steps needed to achieve it.

3. Consider possible blocks and ways of dealing with them.

4. Set deadlines.

*Not every wish can be a goal. For instance, you may wish you could live and stay young forever, but since there's nothing you can do to make that happen, it could never be considered a goal.

In order for something to be a goal, you must have self discipline! Remember these key points!

 It has to be important to you, personally.

 It has to be within your power to make it happen through your own actions.

 It has to be something you have a reasonable chance of achieving.

 It must be clearly defined and have a specific plan of action.

Looking forward to a great 2016-2017 School year

PARCC Testing information
December 10th, 2014

Dear Parent/Guardian:

In the spring of 2015, the New Jersey Department of Education will begin to administer the PARCC assessment to students in grades three through eleven. The PARCC assessment is an electronic assessment designed to measure student proficiency in Language Arts and Mathematics, as defined by the Common Core Standards. This two-part computer assessment will replace the NJASK Mathematics and the NJASK Language Arts in grades three through eight. It will also replace the HPSA Mathematics and HSPA Language Arts in grade eleven. The NJASK Science in grades four and eight, as well as the NJ Biology Competency test at the high school level, will continue throughout the 2014-2015 school year. 

The first part of the computer based assessment, the Performance Based portion, will be administered to Fort Lee students between March 2nd & March 27th. The second part of the assessment, the End of Year portion, will be administered between April 27th & May 22nd for students in grade three through eight, and between April 20th & May 15th for students in grade nine through eleven. In both the Performance Based and End of Year PARCC assessment, the Language Arts section consists of three assessments, and the Mathematics portion consists of two assessments. Specific dates and times for each grade level within these date ranges will be provided once each school finalizes their schedule. Our Administrative Team will also be hosting PARCC Parent Nights in the end of January. Please check our website for updated information.
