10.7 RUMSON + FAIR HAVEN KINDNESS WEEK 10.14

We are so excited to welcome all of our students and excited for a great school year!  

We are happy to be involved in a THINK KINDNESS campaign to officially kick off in early October. 

As part of a larger initiative taking place this fall throughout Rumson and Fair Haven, our schools and children will be participating in R+FH Kindness Week, running October 7th – 14th. Brian Williams, founder of the non-profit, Think Kindness, will captivate our children with his message of ‘kindness is cool’, inspire them and jumpstart a week of thoughtfulness.

All parents and community members are invited to hear Brian’s same message of kindness, on Monday, October 7th at 7:30pm, at a special evening to be held at Rumson-Fair Haven High School.




 

The Forrestdale School Guidance Program addresses children's needs through a developmental and preventative approach. Through the help of teachers and administrators, the guidance program provides a caring atmosphere which enables students to develop socially, emotionally and academically. The guidance program provides various services to enhance the quality of our students' school experiences. Some of the activities include individual and group counseling, classroom guidance visits, the character education program, crisis intervention, and academic intervention. 

 

Each class in grades 4th through 8th grade participates in a weekly Character Education class and/or Morning Meeting with their homeroom teacher. 

 

Students may contact Ms. Pearson by leaving a 

note in the mail slot outside of the Media Center.

 

Notes for Ms. Copman can be left in the purple

 mailbox outside of her office near the gym.

 

Parents, please do not hesitate to reach out to 

Ms. Copman or Ms. Pearson via phone or email at any time.
