NEMS Participates in No Name Calling Week!
No Name Calling Week, which took place on January 19-23 2015, is a national initiative put forth by GLSEN to help prevent bullying. Schools all around the country participated in this annual week of educational activities aimed at ending name-calling and inspiring schools to build community and have ongoing conversations about ways to eliminate bullying. On Friday, January 23, 2015, all New Egypt Middle School students participated in activities that promoted building a positive community. They worked together to find things they all had in common, showing that they are all more alike than they are different. Finally, each student wrote on a chain link one thing they will do to prevent teasing and bullying and make NEMS a safe, positive place for everyone. All the links were assembled into one long chain showing NEMS’s commitment to end bullying!
New Egypt Middle School’s
8th Grade Students
Visit The State House
On January 30, 2015, seventeen of New Egypt Middle School’s best and brightest participated in the EIRC Mini-Model Congress Leadership Day at the State House in Trenton. Mr. McCarthy's 8th Grade Advanced Social Studies classes developed bills with potential to have positive impacts on the world. Bills created by Victoria Grochowski, Madeleine Sonday, Victoria Hegdal, and Ellie Witham were selected to advance for debate at the Mini-Model Congress on March 31st. "I can't believe they picked our bill, we worked really hard and we couldn't be happier!" exclaimed Victoria Grochowski. If successful at the March debate, their bills could get passed that day. In addition, Lauren Carlucci and Julia Brown were chosen to chair debate committees and are working hard to make New Egypt proud. "I am so proud of all my students, and think this is a great experience for everybody involved," said Mr. McCarthy. “The classes really enjoyed their time at the State House and are looking forward to returning for the Mini Model Congress on March 31st.”
