Spartans Head to Maplewood Middle School
The students of Maplewood Middle School were excited to find out that their school was a recipient of the Spartans’ School of the Week program. The school was nominated by Spartans’ Player, #58 Mr. Nigel Green, Youth Development Liaison for the Middle School. As a recipient of the program, the students, faculty, and staff all receive complimentary tickets to a NJ Spartans Minor League Football Game.
The program plays a major role in the community efforts of the New Jersey Spartans organization, who strive to reach as many people as possible throughout the state of NJ. Earlier this year, a few Spartans’ players visited Maplewood Middle School to assist in their Youth Violence Prevention event, focusing on discipline and peace rather than anger and fighting. The Spartans look forward to returning to Maplewood Middle School in June 2015 for the Annual Boys Night Out.
