WARREN, NJ - January 24 is the day that every sixth grade student at Warren Middle School will receive a chromebook.

Dean of Students Scott Cook will be there with Principal Robert Comba to see the one to one vision become a reality.

The chromebooks were made  possble by an approximate $40,000 donation by the Warren Middle School PTO.

Shortly after the roll out, Cook will assume his new positon  of Mount Horeb Principal as of February 1, 2014. Cook will replace William Kimmick, who will assume the position of Curriculum Coordinator for the district.

Superintendent Dr. Tami Crader said, " As I am sure you will agree, this is a well-deserved promotion. Mr. Cook has consistently demonstrated strong leadership skills and positive interactions with students and parents. I am confident that he will be an asset to Mount Horeb School."

At the last Warren Middle School PTO meeting, the PTO  thanked  Cook and wished him well. Afterwards, parents attended a presentation on the chromebook initiative. The students and teachers are excited for the enhancements to learning and the opportunities for collaboration that the chromebooks will afford.

Max Achtau will assume the position of Dean of Students at Warren Middle School.

Achtau is currently teaching seventh grade science at Community Middle School in West Windsor-Plainsboro.  Achtau holds his undergraduate degree fromRutgers University and had a dual major in science and German.  He also has two masters' degrees in German Literature and Educational Leadership from Tufts University.   Achtau lives in Lawrenceville with his wife and two children, Elizabeth age 7 and Max, age 4.  
 
It is anticipated that Achtau will start at Warren Middle School shortly after Cook's departure depending upon when he is released from West Windsor-Plainsboro. Transition planning is underway.
