Empathy through Book Clubs

7th Grade Language Arts classes are promoting literacy, tolerance, and empathy through social justice book clubs. Students requested group members and then each group selected a book to read together with the support of their teacher. Please visit our website or ask your student about it!

NJ Child Assault Prevention (CAP) for all K-12 Students

All NJ schools must now incorporate age appropriate sexual abuse and prevention education to all preschool through grade 12 students.

WWRSD will be utilizing CAP (NJ Child Assault Prevention: https://njcap.org/). These age appropriate classes take place in all K-6 classes, beginning in January. Parent permission will be required for children to be present for the classes.

PSO Information

Please join us for our second annual Bowling Family Night Out on Sunday, November 10th! All students and their families are invited to Montvale Lanes from 6 - 8 p.m. for a fun night of bowling, pizza and snacks. $20 includes shoe rental and two games. Pizza, drinks and snacks will be available for sale as well. We hope you will be able to join us! Please note: this is not a drop off event.

Big News for Box Tops!

Download the new Box Tops app and keep earning for our school! Box Tops is in the process of going digital. While you will be able to clip and send them in the traditional way while products remain on store shelves, earning 10 cents for the school with each Box Top you send in (and these really add up!), we will be shifting toward individual online submission and an all-school goal. Please download the app at the Apple App Store or on Google Play to participate. Anytime you purchase items featuring the new Box Tops label, you’ll simply need to scan your receipt and all such items will be recorded—with just one scan. Scanning these receipts also gets us entered in contests that win bonus Box Tops for our school—right now, for instance, there’s a chance to win 5,000 bonus Box Tops and a chance to win a $20,000 school makeover!

Keep on clipping and start scanning! Next competition round ends in February!!

Please visit our website for information regarding the WRMS PSO. The PSO is seeking volunteers for our upcoming events. If you are interested, please email them at middleschoolpso@wwrsd.org.
