The Harlem Wizards are coming!

We are excited to announce that on Monday January 29, the Harlem Wizards will be visiting Maplewood Middle School to put on a show for our community. The Harlem Wizards are a Sports Entertainment group who put on a show using Basketball as main source of entertainment. From the oohs and ahhs of slam dunks, jaw dropping dribble displays, and ridiculous trick shots, coupled with the comedy, audience participation, the spontaneity delivered as a world class show, in an intimate setting, its sure to be a night that will be treasured.

The game will feature members of the Harlem Wizards team, competing and performing with Local teachers, coaches, police officers and community leaders. Maplewood Middle School will be the only place you need to be on Monday January 29.

Tickets for this event can be purchased by going to: schedule-tickets/

Simply scroll down to January 29 on the calendar, Select Maplewood, NJ and follow the instructions from there to purchase your tickets. Tickets purchased in advance are $10, and at the door on the day of the event are $15. All proceeds and money raised will be going to the Maplewood Basketball Program.

The show will start at 7:00pm, and the doors will open at 6:00pm.

Warm Regards,

Ms. Gronau

Maplewood Middle School Remind App Code @k92d29

This year, the MMS Principal has added a school-wide "Remind App" as another way to communicate with families. Many of your child's teachers will share Remind class codes for you and your child to stay up to date about class events and assignments. As needed, the MMS Principal will periodically use the Remind App to share important info with our school community. Our Maplewood Middle School school-wide code Remind code is listed above (@k92d29). The link below explains how to begin getting notifications. It's a simple way to stay in touch. Join us!
