     Arleth Elementary School honors
Emma Louise Arleth who devoted 43 years to the education of Sayreville's children.
     Born on January 12, 1890, Miss Arleth was the oldest of seven children. "She always seemed to be in an 'up' mood and she had a delightful giggle!" according to one of her nieces. Miss Arleth graduated from high school in 1907, as shown in this photograph.  She began teaching at New School No. 1 that same year. Later, she studied at both Rutgers University and the New Jersey Normal School. She taught 8th grade and eventually served as principal of Washington School. She was an excellent teacher and strict disciplinarian, but very fair.
     Emma Arleth never married but made a home for her father at 98 Main Street in Sayreville. She died in 1952.
