On Saturday, June 12th, Edgar Middle School will host an anniversary event to celebrate the first decade of the “new” middle school. In September of 2000, Edgar Middle School opened its doors to a student body which included grades 5-8. Previously, Edgar was a 6/7 school. The fifth graders were at Campbell Elementary School and the eighth grade was part of an 8-12 Metuchen High School. The reorganization of the Metuchen Public School District to provide a true middle school experience has been beneficial to our middle level students. The opportunity to learn and grow in an environment that is responsive to the needs of this unique age level has been rewarding for all involved. On Saturday, June 12th, Metuchen will celebrate the 10 Year Anniversary of Edgar Middle School. It will be a day of family fun as we recognize what we have accomplished over the last ten years. Activities and events have been planned for the day on Edgar Field from 11:00 – 4:00. Please join us for a family day as we come together as a school community, past, present, and future.
Events include musical performances, special guest speakers, a game show, “Are You Smarter Than A Middle Schooler?”, square dancing, and carnival games. Local food vendors who are participating in the event include La Rosa’s Pizza, Hailey’s Harp and Pub, What’s the Scoop, and Meiying’s Chinese Restaurant. Please join us on Saturday, June 12th from 11:00 to 4:00 pm on Edgar Field as we celebrate the first decade of our “new” middle school. Happy 10 Year Anniversary Edgar Middle School! Rain date: June 13th.
