Social-Emotional Learning Support
Social-Emotional Learning Support Jeopardy

On March 3, 2021, students at both East Brook and West Brook middle schools had the opportunity to engage in a virtual assembly program facilitated by the district’s Care Plus clinicians.

Diane Wirth, LCSW, Lara Librie, LPC, Staci Chmielesk, LCSW, and Jackie Emerson, LSW delivered a live broadcast to both middle school students in 5th through 8th grades. The focus of this Care Plus presentation was to continue to focus on social-emotional learning. The clinicians from both schools focused on feelings, stress, and anxiety. Stress management strategies were presented to the students in a Jeopardy format. Students from both East Brook and West Brook engaged in a Jeopardy game that focused on healthy coping skills, mind and body, problem solving skills, and time management.

The initiative to support students was a goal established by the administration, counselors, teachers, and Care Plus. 

MS Orchestra

On February 4, Paramus High School symphonic orchestra members welcomed eighth grade orchestra students from both East Brook and West Brook Middle Schools to their after school rehearsal. Current eighth graders were able to catch a glimpse of how the orchestra program is making music at the high school. Thank you to Mrs. Wilkes for hosting the eighth graders!
