Communications radios in the MS and HS
The use of radios as safety communications devices in the Glen Rock Middle and High School building has been discussed recently in the community. Please click here to read a letter from Superintendent Bruce Watson regarding this important subject.

To the Glen Rock Community,

In times of tragedy, we as a community must come together to help our neighbors in need. As many of you already know, on Thursday, May 17, 2018, the Paramus School District suffered a tragic loss of a teacher and a student in a field trip bus crash. This event injured 43 other students and staff members. With this tragedy hitting so close to Glen Rock, the Glen Rock Middle School Student Council will be spearheading a “Neighbor to Neighbor” fundraising campaign for East Brook Middle School.

The Glen Rock Middle School Student Council will be hosting a drive of supplies needed for the injured students, their parents and their families who remain in the hospital. We hope to provide the families of those still hospitalized with basic necessities to provide comfort during this difficult time. Please see the list below for supply recommendations. Students and families can drop off the supplies to a bin in the middle school main office. The Student Council will deliver the supplies to Morristown Medical Center where the injured are being treated. If your student would like to write the 5th graders a card, cards will also be accepted in the donation bin. These supplies will be collected until Thursday, May 31, 2018.

In addition, a donation bin will remain in the middle school office if you would like to send any contribution to the cause. This donation money will be used to send a check to the Paramus Children’s Health fund and provide meals for the parents of the injured. Donations can be cash or checks made out to “Glen Rock Middle School Student Council”.

Recommended Supplies:

  • Individually wrapped snacks (granola bars, fruit snacks, crackers, cookies, etc)
  • Gift Cards (Morristown Hospital said Walgreens, Walmart, Starbucks, gas station, and Visa/American Express gift cards are most needed at this time)

Any donation, big or small will help this community as they begin to start the healing process. Please stay tuned for announcements & future emails to hear of more “Neighbor to Neighbor” fundraising events. 

If you have any questions about the fundraiser, please contact the Glen Rock Middle School Student Council advisors: Megan Mihalik and Amanda Carullo.
