    Dear JTMS Parents, Students, and Friends,

    It is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome and a happy new year to our school community.  As we approach the second semester of the 2021-2022 school year, I continue to be inspired by the hard work and resilience of our staff and students.

    Here at JTMS, we have placed an emphasis on addressing the social-emotional and developmental needs of our students, while continuing to deliver a challenging, explorative, and thought-provoking curriculum. As part of our social-emotional learning initiatives, we are focused on three key areas: building a strong sense of community, encouraging the use of self-regulation strategies, and promoting a growth mindset.

    As we move through this winter and spring, we will need to continue to be flexible and creative in our approach to managing our regular school day and after-school programs.  Here at JTMS, we continue to strive to meet our District’s goal of our schools being open FULL DAY, EVERY CHILD, EVERY DAY.  I am looking forward to the many upcoming events and programs that we have planned.

    It is truly my pleasure to be the principal of this amazing school!

    Warmest Regards,

    Peggy Widgren, Principal

  • Mr. Mark DiDonato (Middle School STEM Teacher) has been officially named the 2022 Air Force Association Chapter 195 "Teacher of the Year" in Aerospace/STEM Education!

    The Air Force Association is a nationwide network of Air & Space Force veterans, family members, professionals and related industry experts and advocates who seek to promote aerospace and STEM education in the interest of our future workforce and national security needs. Chapter 195 "Shooting Star" covers the majority of Northern New Jersey and they select an annual "Teacher of the Year" from middle school and high school who best reflects the values of their chapter and has demonstrated the inclusion of flight-based STEM instruction to their students. Mark is a perfect match for this award.
    Mark's passion for STEM education and working with our middle school students makes his classroom a place that everyone wants to be. As our STEM programs gradually shift to becoming more and more flight/aerospace based, it is great to know that we have a teacher like him showing our students the way. He will receive his award at a luncheon in Florham Park on Saturday, May 28th and give a brief talk about his teaching activities to members of the "Shooting Star" chapter.
