MEMS Principal's Update

Spring 2022

Dr. Michael Fiorillo

It's hard to believe that the 2021-2022 school year is (rapidly) coming to a close. I am very proud of all of the hard work our students and staff put into making this school year a success despite the numerous challenges we faced. I am also exceedingly thankful for the continued support of the Manalapan-Englishtown community. MEMS is truly an extension of the community and it is only by working together that we have navigated the pandemic and its unprecedented impact. After two tumultuous years there is a true sense of "normalcy" returning to the halls. With end of the year activities and spring sports in full swing I am looking forward to ending this school year on a high note.

Graduation

We are happy to say that Graduation will be held on Wednesday, June 22, 2022 at 10:30 a.m. at the Brookdale Community College Collins Arena! Eighth grade students do not attend school on June 22nd, but should report to Brookdale Community College at 9:45 a.m. The doors to Collins Arena will open at 10:15 a.m. for ticket holders.



Each graduate will receive three (3) tickets for the ceremony. These tickets will be in an envelope that will be stapled in the cap and gown package, which will be distributed on Monday, June 20, 2022. We are unable to provide additional tickets or duplicates. Brookdale Community College strictly enforces its rules regarding fire code regulations and seating capacity. Therefore, please secure your tickets, as you will need them to enter Collins Arena. DO NOT CONTACT THE MEMS OFFICE TO INQUIRE ABOUT EXTRA TICKETS. THERE ARE NONE.


The dress code for graduation is that we request students not to wear jeans, shorts or sneakers. Their dress should reflect the dignity of the occasion.

Here are just a few of the amazing things that have been happening at MEMS this spring

Dress Code Reminders

As the weather gets warmer it is important to remember that there is a school dress code. This is particularly important for gym and science classes, where safety is an issue. The following attire is prohibited:


  • Short shorts/skirts which reveal the upper thigh and/or undergarments.

  • Shorts and skirts must be of “fingertip” length

  • Sheer layers, tank tops, midriff, halter, and other tops with spaghetti straps which reveal the abdomen, chest or undergarments

  • Shirts and shorts/skirts – must overlap (no skin should be exposed)

  • Flip flops, slipper-type shoes, or other unsafe footwear

  • Spiked or studded jewelry, oversized or multi-finger rings, chains, or any other attire with spikes or studs attached

  • Attire which may be dangerous in particular school settings, i.e., sandals in a science lab or technology room

  • Clothing that may have offensive or inappropriate writing/pictures on it

  • Head coverings of any kind with the exception of those garments worn for religious reasons

  • Coats, jackets, or other attire normally worn as outerwear.


Thank you for your help with this important issue.

Chromebooks

This year, we will NOT be collecting Chromebooks from our 7th grade students. Their assigned Chromebook can be used for summer assignments but should always be kept in their carrying case when not in use. The attached will be shared with our 7th Grade students regarding Chromebook care.



8th Grade Chromebook collection is on Thursday, June 16th during homeroom before Graduation practice. Student and loaner CBs will be disabled the morning of June 16th.
