The Middle School P.E.A.C.E. committee is concentrating on a mentoring program for our students. We have partnered with the Rutgers University's Collegiate 100 Chapter, which is scheduled to meet once a month with the students. This program is designed to mentor South Plainfield Middle School students through positive interactions with a diverse group of adults who have had a wide range of life experiences.

Any students that are interested can participate in this program, they just need to stop into the Guidance Office and talk to their Guidance Counselor.
