Principal's Message


Dear Students, Families and Community Members,

On behalf of all the staff members, I would like to welcome everyone to Samuel S. Yellin School! It is a privilege and honor to serve as Principal of the Yellin School. Our school has an outstanding reputation that is filled with enthusiastic students willing to learn, supportive parents/guardians interested in their children's education, and a dedicated professional staff committed to providing the students with a quality education.

At Yellin we continue to provide an academically challenging environment in order to foster intellectual curiosity and a sense of responsibility in our students. To fully educate the whole person, we are committed to cultivating lifelong learners as well as encourage community service and civic responsibility.

The middle school years are a time of transition and change as students grow physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively. We will take on new challenges, new solutions and attain new heights. I strongly encourage you to get involved with your child and stay in contact with your teachers and administration.

I sincerely hope you will take time to look through our web site and learn about the opportunities available to all students who are members of our Stratford family. I am confident that this will be an outstanding school year and look forward to working with the staff and community to continue to achieve academic excellence!

Thomas F. Attanasi
Principal/Superintendent

HIB Self Report

The following report was completed in response to our state HIB procedures and reporting. Our score for the Samuel S. Yellin School reflects improvements in the areas of reporting for potential incidents of harassment, intimidation and bullying. Particularly we improved in showing community members where and how to access the HIB documents (on our website) and in the speed in which all investigations of HIB are completed. Furthermore, as a school, we have completed more staff training in HIB and also an analysis of where most incidents of harassment, intimidation and bullying occur. Lastly, we now have a committee of members from staff, administration, students and parents. The purpose of this committee (known as the School Safety Team) is to promote activities and procedures that help to lessen incidents of bullying behavior, intimidation and/or harassment.
Congratulations to Denise DiGiandomenico!

Stratford School District Business Administrator (BA)/Board Secretary, Denise A. DiGiandomenico, was recently honored by the New Jersey Association of School Business Officials (NJASBO) with a 2014 Distinguished Service Award for her long-term, continuous exemplary service.
