BOES Principal's Corner

Welcome to Barack Obama Elementary School




Greetings BOES Parents, Guardians, and Students;


Welcome to the 2017-2018 academic year!  For those of you who are new to the district or school, my name is Reginald Mirthil.  I am the principal of the Barack Obama Elementary School.  It is my pleasure to serve you and the community of Asbury Park once more in the capacity of building principal as we provide our students with a quality educational experience at Asbury Park Public Schools.  This year, our initiatives and actions are driven by our mantra of H.E.R.O. (Helpful, Engaged, Respectful and On-task).  Please be informed that Thursday, September 7 and Friday, September 8, 2017 are EARLY DISMISSAL days.  ALL students will be dismissed promptly at 12:30 PM on both days. Our day begins at 7:55 AM and ends at 2:20 PM.  Breakfast is served at 8:00 AM every day. Students are marked TARDY if arriving at 8:16 AM and later. Main office staff will not release your child to anyone that is NOT on the emergency form.  If there are changes, those changes MUST be reported in writing, and given to a secretary in the main office.  School uniforms are mandatory.  If you are in need of assistance in purchasing a uniform, please see Ms. R. Mattis, Parent Liaison in room 153 for an application.


We are glad that you are with us!


Yours in Education,



Reginald Mirthil, Principal
