Principal's Message

Dear Dugan Dragons,

Last year, I shared how humbled and honored I was to begin my tenure as Principal of Frank J. Dugan Elementary School.  After a tremendous school year in which I was able to share my passion as an educational leader, I am looking forward to my second year in which I will remain dedicated to inspiring our staff and children to continuously grow and improve.

Serving as an advocate for children, I continue to welcome the opportunity to collaborate with district staff, families, and community members in ensuring that all may benefit from high-quality instruction, data-driven decisions, and personalized, blended learning.  Rightfully so, high expectations are pervasive throughout this district and my continued plan is to settle for nothing less than the excellence that makes us Marlboro.

I have always been proud of my career accomplishments.  Having served the Marlboro Township Public School District since 2006, I have held positions at Marlboro Memorial Middle School, the David C. Abbott Early Learning Center, and as a District Curriculum Supervisor of Instructional Technology.  My unwavering loyalty to this school district has carved a winding path to Dugan Elementary and there is nowhere else I’d rather be! I look forward to continuously committing myself to a school vision that propagates lifelong learning while fostering students creatively and innovatively so that each individual can reach their optimal potential.

Great leaders aspire to lead by serving the needs of their people.  At home, this means being a devoted husband to my wife, Samantha--who is also an educator--and father to my 2-year old daughter, Gianna, and 5-month old daughter, Juliet.  Despite these past thirteen years doing what is best for children, nothing has offered me a greater perspective to our responsibility and our impact than becoming a parent myself.  Thank you for sharing your children with us each and every day.

Please know that my door is always open and that I encourage you to become an active participant in your child’s educational journey.
 
Warmest Regards,
 
Richard M. Pagliaro
