RFH Students Collect School Supplies
For Those Affected by Hurricane Harvey

 

Rumson – Students in Texas and Louisiana will soon benefit from the kindness and generosity of Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School students. Members of the RFH Chinese, French, and Spanish National Honor Societies held a school supplies drive to benefit school districts impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

The Hurricane Harvey school supplies drive was organized in conjunction with OnCourse, an educational company that provides lesson-planning software to RFH and many other school districts across the country. Representatives from OnCourse collected the supplies from participating schools in New Jersey, including RFH, on September 19th. The items have been delivered by OnCourse to affected schools on the Louisiana/Texas border.

 “Last year, OnCourse sent out an appeal for help to benefit schools in Louisiana that had been affected by Hurricane Matthew,” said RFH French Honor Society Advisor and French teacher Christine Berg. “The French Honor Society held fundraisers and worked with the RFH Film Club to create a message of support for the Livingston Parish School District – and the RFH message of support appeared on the district’s Facebook page.”

 This year, in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, Berg once again reached out to her OnCourse contact, Monserrate Gonzales. Gonzales informed her about the planned school supplies drive for schools impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

 “I reached out to Christina Gauss and Rebecca Wang, Advisors to the Spanish and Chinese National Honor Societies, and they expressed a desire to become involved as well,” said Berg. “It was wonderful to have so many students actively involved in the school supplies drive, and once again we are very grateful for the generosity of the RFH school community”
