    "The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present.  The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion.  As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew."
    - Abraham Lincoln


    Welcome to the RFH Social Studies Department!  We are excited to be able to examine, analyze, and discuss these unprecedented times and political, economic, and social issues through historical and modern perspectives in class! The staff is excited to work and collaborate with colleagues, the community, parents, and students for a productive, safe, and successful school year, wherever it may take us.  One thing is for sure, the 2021-2022 Academic Year, just like last year, is going to be one for the history books! 

    Please direct any questions related to department curricula and policies to Mrs. Sarah Fitzgerald, the Supervisor of the English and Social Studies, at either sfitzgerald@rumsonfairhaven.org or 732-842-1597, x277. Curriculum guides for the RFH Social Studies Department can be found below, as well as on the section of the district's website devoted to district's curricula.

    Immediate questions related to individual student performance should be directed to the child's teacher.
