My name is Matt Sadowsky and I am the Principal of Bushkill Elementary School. It is truly an honor to be a part of the Bushkill family and community! I feel very fortunate to be able to be a part of this school community and work to support the students and the families of our school.
This is the start of my 13th year in education. My career started in the Council Rock School District where I taught 3rd grade. I've worked for the past ten years in Bucks County at the Pennridge School District as a first and third grade classroom teacher before transitioning to the Elementary ELA & Humanities Supervisor. I am committed to providing students with an enriching learning environment that enhances academic and social growth. It is my mission to ensure that the students look forward to coming to school in an environment where they feel both physically and emotionally safe. At Bushkill we work hard to create a shared culture of respect and responsibility where children feel confident in themselves and in taking educational risks within the classroom.
Bushkill Elementary School is located on the East Stroudsburg North Campus in Lehman Township, Pike County of Northeastern Pennsylvania. The school was built in 1998 and houses nearly approximately 400 students. Although it is located in an area that is considered rural, the school has many characteristics of a suburban school and much of its population has an urban flavor. Our school mission statement indicates, "Bushkill Elementary School, a culturally diverse, rapidly growing, united community." and reflects the diversity of our school community. Students come from various ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic groups.
Bushkill Elementary School embraces a standards-based approach to learning, providing clear expectations and benchmarks for achievement in the core curricular areas. There is a strong emphasis in writing-across-the-curriculum to engage all students in the learning process. Standards are posted in every classroom, along with examples of student work that meet those standards. The students display a sincere respect for one another, as well as for their teachers.
We are a school with a strong culture for learning and are dedicated to providing multiple opportunities for our students and school community to become successful learners in and out of the classroom. Bushkill Elementary School mutually benefits with partnerships with home and other members of the community to provide resources, experiences, and interactions for students and staff. We are truly a "Community School."
I am truly committed to you and your child. Please do not ever hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
Mr. Matt Sadowsky
