Remember Our Favorite Author Robin Palmer?

UPDATE! Click here for the Geek Charming Full Movie Preview Trailer! It premieres on the Disney Channel on Friday, November 11th at 8 p.m. Congratulations Robin Palmer!

Remember back in the winter of 2009, when we had the lovely Robin Palmer, author of Cindy Ella, join us for an author visit? We had an in-depth book discussion, Q&A, book signing, and photo op. Well, we have exciting news! Her book Geek Charming has been turned into a movie starring Sarah Hyland and Matt Prokop!!! We will keep you posted on the release date.

Official released synopsis:
"Dylan Shoenfield is the pink princess of the upscale Los Angeles Woodlands Academy. She has the coolest boyfriend, the most popular friends, and a brand-new it bag that everyone covets. But when she accidentally tosses her Serge Sanchez bag into a fountain, this princess comes face-to-face with her own personal frog, self-professed film geek Josh Rosen. In return for rescuing Dylans bag, Josh convinces Dylan to let him film her for his documentary on high school popularity. Reluctantly, Dylan lets F-list Josh into her A-list world, and is shocked to realize that sometimes nerds can be pretty cool. But when Dylans so-called prince charming of a boyfriend dumps her flat, her life and her social status comes to a crashing halt. Can Dylan win the Woodlands Academy Fall Formal Leaf Queen crown? Can Josh win the Woodlands Academy 10th Annual Film Festival? Can Dylan, with Joshs help, pull the pieces together to create her own happily-ever-after?"

A Day of Service

To commemorate the 10th Anniversary of September 11, 2001, we have set aside Friday, September 9th as a Day of Service at Mepham High School and throughout the district.

All schools in the district will be collecting non-perishable food items for donation to local food pantries. There is a significant need for baby food and formula. We will also be collecting “gently used” backpacks with school supplies for those families in need. Students throughout the district are asked to bring items to their Period One class. Parents and community members may place items in the bins located in each building’s main office.

In addition, we will be sponsoring a District Blood Drive at Brookside School (1260 Meadowbrook Road) from 2 – 8 PM for the entire school community.

We hope you will participate in these activities as we focus our attention on ways we can continue to build a supportive and understanding school community.
