Recently, 8th grade students, from Thomas Jefferson Middle School, visited the Holocaust Museum Center for Tolerance and Education at Rockland Community College in New York. The mission of the center is to educate, through the lens of the Holocaust, about the dangers of intolerance, to invoke critical thinking, and to inspire moral courage in the face of injustice.

Rich scheduled for tomorrow night on Tuesday, February 6th at 7:00 p.m. The safety and well-being of our students is a top priority, and we believe that Sgt. Rich's insights are invaluable in educating our community about the challenges associated with cyberbullying and social media. We understand the importance of this topic and will communicate the rescheduled date and time via weekly Principal messages and Peach Jar as soon as it is confirmed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding on this matter.

TJ Wrap and Roll!! We are very thankful to all of our faculty/staff and TJ families for supporting our first Bergen Volunteers Adopt-a-Family for the Holidays. This year we supported four children under the age of nine being raised by their grandparents. Thanks to your generosity, we were able to purchase 6-10 toys per child, as well as 6-10 outfits each (along with new winter coats) with gift cards to Shop Rite and Walmart. Thank you to all who supported this great cause!
