Woodrow Wilson is proud to partner with New Brunswick High School for a brand new Pen Pal Program, initiated by Mr. Smith and Ms. Hyland. During the 2015-2016 school year, Ms. Hyland, Ms. Lazovick, and Coach Harris of New Brunswick's High School worked together to ensure that 6th grade students from Ms. Hyland’s class had a pen pal partner from NBHS.
The students from the High School were all athletes who regularly take part in community service. Their commitment to volunteerism was evident as they participated in this program. These students consistently wrote letters back and forth throughout the year. Coach Harris and his student-athletes even came for a visit and participated in activities that helped them get to know their Pen Pals. The students and their pen pals later joined up again for a unified bowling event in the spring.
The program was a complete success and will continue into the 2016-2017 school year. Woodrow Wilson looks forward to meeting their new NBHS student-athlete Pen Pals!
