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.

The Middle Township Performing Arts Center will be hosting Elementary School #2 Drama Club’s “Snow Way Out! A Vacation in Winter’s Wonderland” on January 6 and 7 at 7pm. Tickets are $5 each.
