According to the school’s website, Project TEAM (Teachers Enhancing Achievement through Motivation) was initially created as a teacher-student mentoring program designed to promote success for at risk students by fostering a structured relationship between a student and a concerned faculty member. However, in the past few years, it has evolved to include all students who would like to be part of a social, service-based club. Any student who would benefit from mentoring is recommended for membership by faculty, administrators, and counselors. Teachers who participate do so as volunteers. Various activities are held throughout the year for all teachers and students involved.

MTHS’s Holiday Band Concert will be held on December 9 at 7pm at the Performing Arts Center.

The Middle Township Performing Arts Center will also be hosting a Movie Night on Friday, December 11 at 6:30 p.m. Come in your favorite pajamas and watch The Polar Express, decorate cookies and meet Santa for a $6 donation. For more information, go to www.middlepac.net.
