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.
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.”
On April 16, 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 March winners! We are very proud of you!
