The middle school advisors assist with the 7th and 8th grade class elections. Each class elects a president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer. The advisors and class officers meet on a monthly basis to discuss upcoming events such as dances and fundraising activities. The advisors assist the 8th grade parents with the planning of the Eighth Grade Celebration.

Interact and React Club is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 12 to 18. The Interact and React clubs are sponsored by Midland Park/Wyckoff Rotary club, which provide support and guidance, but the clubs are self-governing and self-supporting.

Each year, Interact and React clubs complete many community service projects, and participates in many of the town events such as Midland Park Day, tree lighting and town parade. Students run two large community service projects: a fashion show and a car show to raise funds to donate to a local cause, the Gift of Life Program or St. Jude’s Hospital.

The Interact and React club develops student leadership skills, personal integrity, respect for others, and teach the value of community and helping others.

Students write articles on local and national events from the middle school perspective. We have 4 issues per year and meet to discuss topics before each issue. Students then work individually with me to get the article out.

Brain Busters is a quiz bowl competition that uses a lock-out buzzer system for 7th and 8th grade students.    It is open to anyone interested in competing.  Competition questions are about all subjects and current events.  Meetings will be held during/after school to practice.  The team meets once per month per division, during the school day. Each school hosts a monthly “practice” competition.  The final competition is held at Bergen Community College in the spring.
