Dear SET Families,


Spring is in the air and right around the corner!  Third marking period is underway and standardized testing is about to commence.   There is work to be done, college essays to be completed, and events to look forward to.  As our seniors prepare for graduation, it is difficult to comprehend how quickly the time flies!

In SET, administrators, teachers and students work to create a positive and loving atmosphere.  SET is truly a second home to me, and, I hope, for your children.  It is our shared goal to make every student feel cared for and to treat every child with respect every day.  I am truly fortunate to have the opportunity to lead SET and to get to know your children.  I continue, after 34 years, to be enthused.  Each day brings new challenges and new opportunities - I truly enjoy spending time with these marvelous young people!  In classrooms, on playing fields, and while involved in community service endeavors, they shine.  As a school it is our goal to meet the unique needs of each student and to celebrate their individual gifts.  With an inspiring team of SET teachers and staff, we seek to challenge each of them to rise to his/her potential and to embrace the learning experience by creating a cohesive community where your children can thrive.

Thank you for your continued support. Please feel free to email (maperrotta@paterson.k12.nj.us) or call me with your questions and concerns so that we can continue to work together to make SET a special school.


Warm regards,





The SET uniform for 2016-2017 school year are blue polo shirts with the logo and khaki bottoms. You may purchase the blue polo shirt in the SET office.
