 New Egypt Middle School’s Eco Action Team Hosts
Second Annual Eco Fair/STEM Night

New Egypt Middle School’s Eco Action Team recently hosted an Eco Fair and STEM night event at the middle school.  

The Eco Action Team is the school’s Green Initiative student club, developed to help bring awareness to environmental issues and get students involved in making positive and sustainable change. Teachers Tara Melchior, Patti DiChristofaro, Alyson MacFarland, Allison Stathius, Diane Dancer, Diane Carr, Caitlin Lynch, Diane DiBenedictis and Corrine Lynn worked with a team of over 25 students to help put together this event. The evening was complete with fun craft stations, educational activities, free snacks and a prize giveaway.  Students ran workshops on various topics and displayed items from their various class experiences.  The entire event was paid for through the Eco Action Team, and was open to the New Egypt community. 
“I am glad I became involved in the Eco Night.  It was a great experience”, said NEMS student, Morgan Crater.  “I plan to do it again next year!” “It was fun.  It was pretty cool with face painting...and the younger kids had a good time,” said Georgia Toto, a student who assisted at the event Nate Flynn, another middle school attendee said, “It was pretty cool.  It was educational and fun.  I will be involved next year!” “This was the second year we hosted this event, and I hope we can continue to do it for many years to come.  This year, we included Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) initiatives and it tied things together well.  The students did such an amazing job, and I am so proud of each and every one of them for representing our school so well!”

  Congratulations to NEMS New Warrior Pals

It’s official!  Next year’s New Egypt Middle School Warrior Pals have been chosen and will begin training this spring.  


“Warrior Pals” is the peer leadership program at New Egypt Middle School. The program was created and is overseen by one of the school counselors, Mrs. Natalie Belfiore.  This year, Ms. Carolyn Santoro, NEMS’s other School Counselor, will also be joining in on the fun to assist with the program.  


Warrior Pals are trained during 7th grade to be 8th grade peer leaders who mentor incoming 6th grade students during their transition to middle school.  


“Warrior Pals are positive role models who support not only the 6th grade students but all the students at NEMS,” said Belfiore. “The newly chosen Warrior Pals are ready and raring to go as they embark on the journey to becoming peer leaders.  


The new Warrior Pals are ready to get started.

“ I feel honored to have been selected as a Warrior Pal,” said 7th grade student Cole Damman.


“I am super excited about this opportunity,” said Sarah Weber, 7th grade student and Warrior Pal.


The selected Warrior Pals are:  Ashlynn Bock, Drew Clugsten, Cole Dammann, Jack Devine, Abby Holman, Hannah Lombardo, Kayla Mulligan, Mackenzie Normile, Christopher O’Neill, Alex Pavljuk, Madelyn Reuter, John Rinaldi, Brandi Robbins, Vanessa Rodriguez, Chase Sempervive, Anthony Surdo, Sarah Weber, and Nicole Winouski.

Return to The State House

Mr. Brenden McCarthy’s Advanced Social Studies class recently traveled to the Trenton State House for the Mini-Model Congress. 

“The students had worked hard to create bills and research the other bills that were selected,” said Mr. McCarthy.

 The classes were split into two groups:  the House and the Senate.  Students were broken into smaller groups and assigned rooms where they debated the bills and worked to pass at least one bill.  Later in the day, the groups worked together to pass one bill. 

New Egypt Middle School students Joseph Brown and Celia Medina won “Excellent in Debate” awards. 

“I knew I was well prepared and I was confident in my ability to debate any of the topics,” said Joe Brown.

Several students received “Excellent in Bill Writing” awards. 

“Lauren Carlucci and Julia Brown were fantastic as committee chairs,”  said Mr. McCarthy.  “I am so proud of all the students.  They worked long and hard to be prepared for today and it was great to see them succeed. All of the students learned something that day and enjoyed their time in the State House.”
