Principal's Message


East Rutherford Middle School Students & Families,


I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend. On Monday, we start Week 9 of the school year. Thank you to those who attended our first Viking Valor Awards Day for the 2019 - 2020 school year last week. We enjoyed celebrating our students and we will celebrate again after the next report card. Students please work very hard this week and ask questions if you don’t understand something. Next week, midterms will go home. Parents don’t forget you can always ask your child to open their Canvas course and show you their grades. If you want to check your child’s grades from your own Smartphone or any computer please make sure you have a Parent Canvas account. If you need help creating a Parent Canvas account call the school and ask for Katie Cox our Instructional Technology Facilitator. She can provide you with specific directions to create your own account. Don’t forget everyone at East Rutherford Middle School wants your child to succeed this school year.
