Summer Orientation

West Essex Middle School (WEMS) is eagerly planning for the 2021-2022 academic year!  Although Move-Up Day will not occur this year, we remain committed to a smooth transition for all of our Knights.  


Our new WE Lead peer leadership program will kick-off with an exciting and comprehensive
7th Grade Orientation for the Class of 2027 that is tentatively scheduled for August 30-31.  During this 7th Grade Orientation, selected peer mentors from the Class of 2026 will prepare the underclassmen for academic, social, and emotional success at West Essex Middle School.  Students will engage in get-to-know you games, team building activities, a scavenger hunt, building tour, Chromebook distribution and more.    


Also on August 30-31, West Essex Middle School anticipates having an 8th Grade Open House to allow students to receive their Chromebook and gain access to their lockers.


Further orientation and open house details, including your child’s academic schedule, will become available on or about August 1.  Although students and families are likely wishing for more information pertaining to the next school year, we ask for your patience as we continue to monitor the covid-19 pandemic and NJ State guidelines.
