Makers Day at GRMS
On Thursday, March 23rd, sixth grade students will again participate in NJ Makers Day. The goal of NJ Makers Day is to enhance community engagement to promote and explore new opportunities for entrepreneurship, innovation and hands-on learning experiences. Students rotate through several stations set up in the media center that include Scratch block coding, Ozobot and Finch robots, 3-D printing, Little Bits electronic components, a string art project, and Makey Makey invention kits. Students are encouraged to "imagine, create, and share." This program was facilitated by Lauren Mitchell, Middle School Media Specialist. The cost of the Makey Makey kits for Makers Day was underwritten by the Glen Rock HSA.
Steve Sheinkin Author Visit at GRMS
On Wednesday, March 29th, author Steven Sheinkin will visit Glen Rock Middle School. Mr. Sheinkin writes fast-paced, historical nonfiction for middle and high school students. Sheinkin is a three-time National Book Award finalist and has won many other literary awards. His novels include, The Port Chicago 50: Disaster, Mutiny, and the Fight for Civil Rights, The Notorious Benedict Arnold, Lincoln’s Grave Robbers, Bomb: The Race to Build-and Steal-The World's Most Dangerous Weapon, and Most Dangerous: Daniel Ellsberg and the Secret History of the Vietnam War. His most recent work, Undefeated: Jim Thorpe and the Carlisle Indian School Football Team, is an astonishing underdog sports story. It's the story of a group of young men who came together, facing overwhelming obstacles, both on and off the field, and their absolute refusal to accept defeat. You can view some of his other titles and find out more about Mr. Sheinkin at stevesheinkin.com. This program was facilitated by Lauren Mitchell, Middle School Media Specialist and was made possible by the generous support of both the Glen Rock HSA and the Glen Rock Educational Foundation.

Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying
There is relatively new legislation regarding Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying (HIB). Our district has always taken student misconduct seriously, in all forms, and will continue to do so. We support the goals of the law and will fully implement its requirements. The legislation requires reporting of suspected HIB, investigation and determination of whether the behavior is HIB or not. It defines specific reporting and follow-up activities. Harassment, intimidation or bullying means any gesture, written, verbal or physical act, or technological threat whether it be a single incident or a series of incidents that takes place on school property, at any school sponsored function, going to and/or from school, or off school grounds that substantially disrupts or interferes with the orderly operation of the school or the rights of other pupils. The district policy and contact information for the Anti-Bullying Coordinator is available on the district website.
The Middle School Anti-Bullying Specialist is Mr. Jeff Kurland.
He can reached at (201)-445 7700 or via email at kurlandj@glenrocknj.org.
