Witherspoon Middle School Super Saturday A Success Thanks to Fire, Police Departments

To the Editor:

We would like to thank the members of the Princeton and Blawenburg Fire Departments as well as representatives from the Princeton Police Department for so generously helping make the John Witherspoon Middle School  (JWMS)Super Saturday Carnival such a success last weekend. The JWMS students and families attending were thrilled to watch Principal Jason Burr, and Assistant Principal Lynne Harkness ride up to the sky in the ladder truck’s bucket to drop thousands of ping pong balls. Many thanks also to Princeton Mayor Liz Lempert, who announced that JWMS sixth grader Catherine Dyevich, whose ball landed closest to the target painted on the street, was the lucky winner of a set of Beats Dr. Dre headphones. Thanks also to the officers from the Princeton Police Department, some of whom are JWMS alumni, who were on hand to meet students. The event, which raised funding for the annual sixth grade overnight environmental science trip, was all the more successful thanks to the gracious participation by all of you.
