A Message from our Athletic Director

West Essex is excited to have middle school athletics kicking off this week! Having our student athletes participate in extra curricular activities is beneficial to their mental and physical health.  We are fortunate to run our middle school sports this fall. My main priority is ensuring the health and safety of our athletes and coaches. Be safe and have fun. Best of luck with your seasons. Go Knights!
