Press release from Red Bank Regional High School

Fifty students from Red Bank Regional High School were recently treated to an Italian dinner at New Corner Pizzeria in Red Bank as part of a special “Encourage an A” academic incentive sponsored by The SOURCE, the in-school program at RBR.

Now in its 12th year, the incentive program presents gifts to students who earn A grades for the third marking period.

The gifts, all of which are financed through fundraising efforts of the Source Foundation, included gift cards to stores popular with teens. Other gifts included Go Pros, BEAT headphones, Google Chromebook laptops and even 32” LED TVs. The value of the gift grew in proportion to the number of A’s these students earned on their report card. The event was part of the RBR SOURCE sponsored Encourage an “A” academic incentive program now in its 12th year of operation.

The SOURCE Director Suzanne Keller expressed her pleasure with the fact that this year’s event included many seniors who continued to work hard to earn good marks, at a time in their high school career when the condition known as “senioritis” could have an effect on their work habits.

“We try to pull the kids into this program when they are freshmen, so they see the opportunity for success among their peers and return year after year,” the director explained. “I think the program makes them realize that they can do it; with proper study habits, organizational skills and the desire to achieve, they too can be successful and reap this kind of reward.”

Funded by the Department of Children and Families, Division of Community Partnerships and Prevention, Red Bank Regional Board of Education, and the SOURCE Foundation (a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization), The SOURCE’s mission is “to remove all obstacles that impede the success of young people in the community.” This is accomplished by offering services free of charge to students and their families including; individual, group and family counseling, preventative medical and dental care, academic support, scholarship opportunities, and recreational and cultural events.
