Eisenhower Middle School Recognized at National Forums Annual Conference

Posted by Wyckoff Schools Today at 6/22/2016

STW Each year, the National Forum for Accelerating Middle Reform holds their annual conference in Washington D.C. with the purpose of recognizing new and re-designated School’s to Watch. Over 800 participants joined this year’s conference, which included middle schools from seventeen different states and approximately 30 newly named Schools to Watch for 2016. Representatives from Eisenhower’s application team spent four days in our nation’s capital attending workshops, meeting with local congressmen, presenting on two of our hallmark programs, and being honored at a gala in which Eisenhower Middle School was officially awarded our new designation as a NJ School to Watch. Our team attending the conference included Loris Chen, Tom DeLoughry, Sue Dobson, and Chris Iasiello. Highlights from this rewarding experience included collaborating with some of the best middle schools in the nation on how best to balance academic rigor with developmentally responsive programs, meeting with House of Representative Member Scott Garrett and his education staffer to discuss public policy, and presenting our TIEE and Advisory initiatives to an eager audience who wanted to learn more about our outstanding middle school. We could not be more proud of this achievement and for having the opportunity to represent the Wyckoff Public Schools as a School to Watch. National Schools
