Message from the Principal

Dear Orange Avenue Community,

I am extremely excited and honored to be selected as the new principal of Orange Avenue School.  I look forward to working collaboratively with parents/guardians, students, staff, and community members to ensure the success of all children.  I have already met with many members of the staff and community and realize how special Orange Avenue School is. 

I want to assure you that your Orange Avenue Team is working together to ensure a smooth transition that will enable the school to continue its focus on helping each student academically and social-emotionally, while still honoring the historical traditions that the community expects and desires.  I want to personally thank Mr. Van Dam for all of the assistance he has already provided as we work together on preparations for the new school year.  

I bring to Orange Avenue School, thirteen years of administrative experience, eight years of teaching, and a lifetime of working on professional and athletic teams.  Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions regarding the transition process.  

As a parent of a daughter who is entering second grade in the fall, please know how important I view the relationship between school and home.  Outside of school I enjoy attending my daughter’s activities, gardening, cooking, and being a Girl Scout mom.  I have been married eleven years to my husband Michael and we call Monmouth Junction home.

Lori A. Lubieski-Hutmaker
