News and Notes from the Hallways of MHS
Coffee talk with Mr. Guzman
On Wednesday, October 30, 2019, Middlesex High School held a Diversity Day to recognize the different cultures that our students represent. There were many delicious dishes created by some of our students and parents. Diversity Day raised money for the Joseph Sabato Scholarship Fund. This event was a culminating event for the month of October as it followed the Week of Respect earlier in the month. Celebrating the diverse cultures, languages, and traditions is a great opportunity to recognize our differences and build on our commonalities and what we value. This is an opportunity for everyone to engage in conversation and learn from others.
One of our goals at MHS is to build a community that is inspiring, caring, and innovative. Through the sharing of food, I believe our students and staff will cultivate positive identities and encourage everyone to talk, listen, and share as these are the skills that will prepare them to live and work together in a diverse world.

The MHS FBLA Chapter attended the North-Central and Central Region Summit at Piscataway High School on Friday, October 18th. It was quite an eventful day. There were activities that challenged their listening, cognitive, creative and intuitive skills. The main purpose of this event was for the FBLA Chapter members to network, get out of their “comfort zone”, try some public speaking and make new friends.
There was a challenge in which the students from different chapters were to work together and come up with a concept or idea that would raise more money for FBLA chapters or increase membership. They were divided into groups. Meghan Carovillano’s group won first prize and Brianna Pearyear and Sophia Raymondi’s group came in at a close second.
Meghan’s group came up with “Moo for Money” (they demonstrated their concept which won the audience over). It was basically a “staring down” contest. Whoever laughed or lost eye contact first, lost and had to pay money.
Brianna and Sophia’s group developed an app called Tik Tok from the original app. You had to create a creative music video to encourage members to join FBLA.
All in all, the students learned what other chapters are doing in terms of fundraising, what makes their chapter special, membership recruitment and training for the upcoming Regional and State competitive events
