Dear Parents and Guardians:


I would like to congratulate everyone on another successful Russell O. Brackman Middle School opening!  I enjoyed meeting many of you at Back to School Night.  I am sure you will join me in thanking our staff for the amazing job that they do every day!

 After School Assistance programs are beginning. Please encourage your children to take advantage of these worthwhile programs. Several other activities have begun and it’s nice to see lots of students here at the end of the school day participating in cross country, soccer, volleyball and field hockey. Another noteworthy program that has just begun is our Mentoring program. Staff members volunteer to guide students throughout the school year and offer their support. Permission slips for the Mentoring Program are now available in the main office and the guidance department.

Please note that school will be closed on October 10th for Teacher Professional Development

Other activities taking place in October are:

October 3 - 7                Week of Respect

October 4                     Mentor-Mentee Breakfast – 7:00 AM

October 4 & 5              Drama Auditions

October 7                     Walkathon

October 14                   Progress Reports on Parent Portal

October 19                   PTA Meeting – 7:00 PM

October 24 - 28            Red Ribbon Week/Violence Prevention Week

October 27                   NJHS Induction – 6:30 PM

October 28                   Halloween Dance – 7:00 PM

November 2                 PTA Volleyball Game


Please keep in mind that nothing motivates a child more than when they see that education is valued by school and family. It is my ongoing pleasure getting to know you and your child during this school year.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
