    WELCOME MIDLAND FAMILY!
     
    Hello!  We enter a new school year with excitement and high hopes.  Though the events of the past few months have brought changes to the structure and format of the school day, what remains unchanged is our dedication and passion for all of our students.  We look forward to another year of working together toward student success, and to watch the amazing academic and emotional growth that occurs each year. 

    To our 8th grade students, this will be an exciting year of recognizing accomplishments and planning for the future.  There may be changes in the format of events such as high school open houses and applications processes.  Please check under Class of 2021 on the left-hand side of the website for information if you are looking into other high school options.  Many schools are still in the process of organizing events so check back frequently for updated information.  If you have any other questions please feel free to call or email me (lnam@rochellepark.org).  Thank you!
