    Yearbook Club members held bake sales to raise money for a Gift of Therapy and a Gift of Creativity for Children's Specialized Hospital. They received a warm thank you that they would like to share: "It is terrific when donors can choose programs and the therapists can choose exactly what they need for their patients.  Many, many thanks."

  • Red Ribbon Week

    In recognition of National Red Ribbon Week, students participated in Spirit Week activities centered on respecting themselves and appropriate ways to deal with challenging situations. The week kicked off with a presentation to 7th graders by the Union County Sheriff's Office K-9 Unit. The Unit emphasized the significance of making good decisions and commitments to being drug-free. The week culminated with a surprise visit from the NJ National Guard who conducted a helicopter fly-in for 8th graders. Members of the National Guard distributed red ribbons to celebrate living a drug-free life and maintaining a drug-free community. The National Guard's Program raises awareness of drug abuse. Students learned the history of Red Ribbon Week and the role of drug enforcement officers as they engaged in anti-drug activities.

    NPMS began the school year by rolling out our PBSIS Program (Positive Behavior Support In Schools) and the school motto "Respect, Responsibility and Readiness." Students learned leadership skills, behavioral guidelines, expectations and their importance to the school and community. To complement PBSIS, NPMS has a "Dawg Tag" recognition initiative. This is a rewards-based initiative where students can earn rewards for exercising positive behaviors. The school week culminated with outdoor team activities to foster organized behavior and a PTO sponsored luncheon to celebrate "Respect, Responsibility and Readiness.

    As always, Pomptonian encourages everyone to make healthy dining choices and to eat a balanced meal.  Every day there will be a variety of entrées available.  Your student’s meal includes selections from an array of fresh fruits and farm fresh vegetables.  Our cafeteria staff appreciates your patience and understanding as we designed menus that complied with the new Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act regulations in September and make adjustments for the new changes this December.

Welcome to New Providence Middle School!

New Providence Middle School (NPMS) is proud to be designated a Blue Ribbon School. One of the most prestigious awards in the country, the Blue Ribbon designation distinguishes and honors public and private elementary, middle and high schools that are academically superior and that demonstrate dramatic gains in student achievement. Additionally, NPMS has been recognized by the NJ Department of Education as a model school for the successful implementation of the “Positive Behavior Support in Schools” (PBSIS) program. These two achievements are a testament to what can be accomplished when students, teachers, parents and administrators work together toward the common goal of making NPMS a successful school.

NPMS offers a comprehensive and rigorous educational experience for our students.  Our Program of Studies allows all students to complete a full year in Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, Health/Physical Education and World Language.   Within our Language Arts and Math curricula, we offer students enrichment opportunities to further challenge and develop their skills and academic performance. In addition, every student has the opportunity to explore Robotics, Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Practical Arts, Music and additional Language Arts.  Students can also take advantage of the many co-curricular activities which include Math Club, Yearbook, Girls’ Ensemble, Boys’ Ensemble, Jazz Band, Peer Leaders, Student Council, Student Services Organization and Science Club.  Our co-curricular activities complement our challenging Program of Studies and provide students with an opportunity to develop leadership skills and contribute to the betterment of the school community. 

NPMS has a very accomplished, dedicated and highly involved faculty.  We believe in creating a school environment that meets the academic, civic, social and emotional needs of our early adolescent learners while promoting individual success. Our character education programs are centered around school and district-wide themes. Our school-wide theme of “Readiness, Responsibility and Respect” is incorporated into students’ daily routines.  Our entire school community embraces this philosophy, as these values will prepare our students for high school as well as all their future endeavors. Previous district-wide themes include, “Step it Up, Kindness Counts” and “Be the Difference.” These themes incorporate school and community involvement and service and help to bring all district schools together with common character education goals.

We embrace parents and community members as partners in the educational process of our students, as they play an integral role in the success of our children.  We work together to foster a meaningful teacher-parent relationship built on strong communication focusing on students’ needs. We are fortunate to have a very involved Parent-Teacher Organization that collaborates and complements the educational experience for our entire school community.
