The Rumson Environmental Commission and the Recreation Department have teamed up to bring your child(ren) a fun experience for Earth Day. 

 

Attached, you will find the form for our Earth Day Scavenger Hunt.   Children are invited to search for items on the list in and around Rumson.  Once they find at least 15 items, please return the list to Borough Hall via the drop-box or by email to choffmann@rumsonnj.gov  The goal is to have the children enjoy a fun activity while learning good habits for the environment.  Prizes (Crazee’s Ice Cream gift cards) will be given at random to 5 winners.  The contest deadline is 9 A.M. Monday 4/26. 

 

Also attached is an Earth Day Bingo game for your family to enjoy as well.  We encourage you to visit www.rumsonnj.gov/env for more Earth Day resources.   

 

We hope you enjoy the experience and please let us know if you have any questions. 

 

Thank you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to many of your questions.

Reporting Absences
Please report your child's absence from or planned lateness to school by 8:30am. You should call 732-842-0383, option 1 to leave a message or speak to Mrs. Divers. Your attention to this will save time and help us account for all students in an efficient manner. If your child is arriving late from a medical appointment, be sure to ask your medical provider for a note in order for the lateness to be excused. Please note that Deane-Porter school has a separate attendance line. Deane-Porter's number is 732-842-0330.

Phone Calls Home
Please remind your children that if they call you from school, they should leave a message when they do not reach you. If our nurse or school office contacts you, we will always leave a message. If you need to call back, please call 732-842-0383. Bear in mind that the number that shows up on your caller ID will not identify accurately where the call originated. Please listen to your voicemail message before calling the school back, and dial the main office number for the school of your child's enrollment.
