If you have ever toured the Roseland Montessori campus during the year, you would have seen a busy hum of students working at various jobs around the school. These jobs are a very important part of the school's philosophy which prepares students to be successful members of society. Beginning a new school year once again makes it time for job applications and interviews. This week students have completed job applications and have been called in to Mrs. Rhonda Vaccaro's office, acting principal of the school, for their interview. After all students have been interviewed, Mrs. Vaccaro will select the students, and they will complete an on-site job training to prepare for their position. Jobs for this school year include car line helpers, flag crew, student assistants, hall monitors, school meteorologists, and school comedians. Pictured is Mrs. Vaccaro interviewing Emma Sharkey, 4th grade student, for the position of car line helper.
