Dear Parents,Greg

It is an absolute pleasure to join the Upper Greenwood Lake community as your principal. I can promise you that UGL will continue its great work in preparing your children for the most important phase in their educational lives. Personally, this is a significant moment for me. I have been a history teacher at West Milford High School and District Supervisor of History & Social Sciences for the past thirteen years. I had the opportunity to see our students grow from kindergarten to their senior year in high school.

 As a resident and parent within West Milford Township, I can promise you that this is not just a job to administer an elementary school. Our community is a great one and with the tools and resources at our disposal, we will succeed in raising our students to become the best they can be. Please join me in preparing our students for this school year. Our excellent staff is eager to challenge their minds and wait for that “ah-ha” moment as they work within the several content areas. Amazing things are happening within West Milford’s schools and I am very excited to lead Upper Greenwood Lake Elementary School. Big things are coming, please hang on and enjoy the elementary school experience.

Respectfully yours,


Gregory Matlosz, Litt.D.
