North Plainfield Middle School to Host ‘Live Museum and Curriculum Fair’ on March 21

NORTH PLAINFIELD, NJ –North Plainfield Middle School (NPMS) will host its second annual ‘Live Museum and Curriculum Fair’ on Tuesday, March 21. This event is a collective initiative among, staff, students, and members of the community highlighting the varied forms of instruction and assessments that are part of the middle school culture. Last year, the North Plainfield Public Library played a significant role in helping to launch the event.

This year's ‘Live Museum and Curriculum Fair' will commence with opening remarks at 6:45 p.m. in the auditorium. The program will kick off at 7 p.m. and be comprised of three aspects.

The first portion of the evening will feature students adorned in the clothing of historical figures. The students have been working hard and conducting research to take on the role of these figures and will be addressing the audience from that perspective. The historical characters will be assembled throughout the hallway on the first floor.
