FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Eppler Families,

All students should now have the school issued identification badges and lanyards, and our expectation is that students and staff wear them every day. Please continue to encourage your child to follow this important security and safety measure.

Please also be reminded that Fall Parent-Teacher Conferences will be Wednesday, October 9 from 4:00 – 8:00 pm, and Thursday, October 10 from 12:00 – 3:00 pm. On Thursday students will be dismissed from school at 11:12 am. Conferences will be held in the Main Gym and Media Center. Please limit each conference to 5 minutes to allow all parents an opportunity to meet with their child’s teachers. We hope to see you!!

Respectfully,
Jerry Pantano, Principal

Our Vision:

Eppler Junior High School will empower students to achieve their full potential and become productive contributors in a diverse society.

Our Mission:

Parents, students, teachers, and administrators will work with the community to foster a safe and respectful learning environment that will promote independent critical thinking and problem solving.

Recycling

NJHS is continuing to sponsor a recycling fundraiser in partnership with PlanetGreen. They have made a few changes and they are no longer accepting large toner cartridges. Please do not send in the toner cartridges. They do accept:
 Inkjet cartridges
 Cell phones
 GPS
 MP3
 IPods
 Cameras
 E-readers
 Calculators
 Tablets
 Video games, consoles, accessories
It helps Eppler earn money and it helps the landfills! NJHS students can earn hours for donating items, but anyone can bring these items to room 19. Thank you for your support! Please check out PlanetGreenRecycling.com for more information.
