MONTCLAIR, NJ - Montclair residents are invited to celebrate the Buzz Aldrin Middle School dedication on Friday, September 16.

Mt. Hebron Middle School will be renamed officially for Montclair’s own man on the moon, Buzz Aldrin, during a townwide celebration spanning two great events open to the public.

The official dedication will take place at 9:30 a.m. on the front steps of the school. Buzz Aldrin will be there, along with visiting officials and dignitaries. The event is free and open to all. (There will also be an in-school assembly for BAMS students and faculty only, on the morning prior to the dedication.)
