Sixth-grader Besian Hadzovic discusses his schedule with principal Matthew Robinson on the first day of school

September 4 marked the opening day of the school year for Mount Olive students. For Matthew Robinson, it was his first day of school in the district in 18 years – this time not as a student but as the new principal of Mount Olive Middle School. He graduated from the district in 2001.

On the first school day of his Mount Olive principalship, Mr. Robinson visited classrooms to speak with students and staff.

"It's a homecoming for me and an opportunity to give back to the district that prepared me for success in life," Mr. Robinson said. "As principal, I will work day in and day out to ensure that every student at Mount Olive Middle School is supported and is socially and emotionally ready to learn."

For the past two years, the veteran educator served as the superintendent at Stillwater Township School. Prior to becoming superintendent, he was Stillwater's assistant principal. He began his career teaching fifth-grade social studies and English language arts in the South Orange-Maplewood school system, and later became a content area specialist there.

Mr. Robinson holds a bachelor's degree in history from Ramapo College and a master's degree in educational leadership from the College of Saint Elizabeth.
