Principal's Corner

Welcome back to an exciting year full of new possibilities! I am pleased to announce the reopening of Cadwalader Elementary School for the 2022-2023 school year, housing Kindergarten through Third Grade students. I cannot wait to welcome our “Cadwalader Cubs” to their new home. Our focus will be to support students' social and emotional needs so they can fully attend to their academics and exceed their learning targets.

- Any student arriving after 8:45 AM must enter through the main entrance

- Uniforms are strongly encouraged. The uniform consists of a powder blue top and khaki bottoms.


Our first priority is educating students and keeping them safe, so appointments must be made to speak with staff when they are not supervising students.

- Call the main office at 609-656-4850 to make an appointment.

- You must present valid identification to enter the building.

-  All visitors must report to the main office upon arrival.

Emergency Contact Information

In the event of an emergency, we must be able to reach you. Please complete the student

information packet upon receipt and return it to us the next day. If your address or phone

number changes, please update this vital information by calling the main office as soon as it

changes. We also send Robo Calls with important information so keep you number current so

that you will receive those calls.

Afterschool Care

At this time, we do not have an after-school program at Cadwalader. If you are in need of afterschool care please see the suggestions below:

As a new school community, I look forward to getting to know you and your child as we become partners in their education. As we transition as a district and school, please be patient as I am sure there will be some challenges. Communication is key so please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
