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.
NEW EGYPT, NJ, January 22, 2015~ The New Egypt Middle School (NEMS) recently completed their production of The Little Mermaid Jr.
“It was an outstanding success,” said NEMS Principal Mrs. Andrea Caldes. “With a cast of almost 40 students, plus an amazing backstage crew that was kept very busy, audience members were truly transported under the seas to the world of King Triton and his headstrong daughter, Ariel.”
Popular tunes such as "Under the Sea" and "Kiss the Girl" featured talented student vocals as well as creative costumes and sets, including a moving ship.
“The light-up jellyfish and sparkly crab were a true hit, as were the moving tentacles on Ursula's costume,” said play director Mrs. Diane Carr. “Beautifully designed costumes from mermaids to chefs to flamingos complemented the well-crafted sets and catchy tunes.
“Even the crew had parts to play when they scurried across the stage trailing choppy seas waters,” said Mrs. Renee Hogan, NEMS English Language Arts Teacher. “This was an outstanding production from costumes to vocals to choreography - truly something for everyone.”
On January 15, 2015 eleven students from New Egypt Middle School were recognized for their outstanding citizenship at a monthly “Students of the Month/Students Who Made A World of Difference” pizza party hosted by the building Principal, Mrs. Andrea Caldes and Assistant Principal, Mrs. Tara Nesbihal.
Students of the Month are nominated by their grade level team of teachers for outstanding academic achievement, respect for others, participation in co-curricular activities and civic functions.
World of Difference Students are those who are caught being good by displaying positive qualities. Students are issued a reward ticket that is entered into a weekly drawing.
Each student received an award certificate while enjoying pizza with their peers and administrators. Congratulations to the December winners! We are very proud of you!
