Superintendent's Message

Dear River Edge Families,Dr. Tova Ben-Dov

Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year! It is my hope that all our River Edge Families enjoyed a restful yet invigorating summer and that our young students are ready to come back to school full of energy and a healthy appetite for learning. So what are our plans and how have we prepared for them over the summer? As always, administration and staff prepared the facilities, teacher training, and curriculum materials. Described below, are a few of the new features, programs, materials, and of course, people to welcome during the new school year:

As I greet and welcome you officially to the 2018-19 School Year I wish to acknowledge all those who have worked hard to make the opening of school a success. My deepest gratitude goes to the custodial staff who invested endless hours preparing the buildings for a clean and safe return and to the Business Office, Board Office, technology staff, school secretaries, and the administrative team for making sure that all was ready for the beginning of school.  I thank them for their diligence in facilitating a great opening for the 2018-19 School Year! 

  • Take Care of yourself
  • Take Care of Each Other
  • Take Care of this Place

With My Very Best Wishes for a Fantastic 2018-19 School year,


Dr. Tova Ben-Dov
River Edge Superintendent of Schools
