Michael Hodnicki, Principal

Paul Robeson Elementary School is a K-3 school within the Trenton Public School District. Our school colors are orange and black and our mascot is the Tiger Cub!

In our school, we will honor the words of Booker T. Washington who shared, "If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else".  Together, we will lift our students, our families, and our staff.  We will endeavor to find - and help each other find - joy in all we do. As a school community, every decision we make will be student-based, whereby: 

adults will adapt for children

- learning will inform teaching

- values will supercede rules

- resources will service needs

- opportunities will support abilities

Jimmy Santiago Baca shared that “Literacy is freedom, and everyone has something significant to say.” In our school community, everyone’s voice will be honored. Regardless of the role each of us serves - custodian, nurse, paraprofessional, parent, secretary, teacher, etc. - we are all responsible for the well-being of our students. At Paul Robeson, we are honored to work in concert with all members of our school family ensuring that everyone has a platform to share their significant ideas.
