Middle Township Elementary School #2 - Logo & Tagline

Guidance

A note from Mrs. Chew, our School Counselor:

Children throughout the world have been impacted by COVID-19 and a magnitude of other challenges early on in their lives. Middle Township Elementary #2 is committed each and every day to help provide a safe and supportive environment for students to learn and grow. We work together not only to supply the tools for students to thrive intellectually, but also mentally, socially and emotionally.

Age plays a major role in how stress impacts us. It is our mission to teach our students how to cope with stress and anxiety by communicating feelings, recognizing triggers and helping come up with a strategy that meets each students’ unique needs.

If you need additional support, please email me at chewr@middletwp.k12.nj.us.
