RUMSON MARKS TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK

Press release from Rumson School District

In honor of the recent Teacher Appreciation Week, the Rumson Parent-Teacher Organization treated the staff to a week-long celebration. The week included breakfasts, lunches, a cookie swap, and a Wellness Event, all planned for the hard-working teaching staff at Deane-Porter and Forrestdale Schools.

The Wellness Event was certainly the staff favorite, as there was something for everyone to enjoy, including tarot card readers, massage therapists, golf swing analysis, refreshments and a fantastic selection of raffle items.

Students in the Forrestdale Spirit Club surprised all teachers with hand written cards honoring all that they do, while the Administrative Team recognized teachers with a small gift, starter herb seeds and this note: Teachers plant seeds of knowledge in their students. Take some time to plant your own garden and reflect on how many seeds of knowledge you have planted over the years in your students.  Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

“Teacher Appreciation Week in Rumson is a treasure; the thoughtfulness shown each day from our PTO  is extraordinary,” said Grade 8 English Language Arts Teacher Caroline DeWyngaert.  “This week and throughout the year, we are fortunate and honored to work with the children and adults in Rumson.”

The feeling is mutual among the student body, with Sophie Yockel speaking for her fellow Deane-Porter students by noting that “My teachers have helped me with my writing and reading which are sometimes hard. Now I can write entire essays, even an opinion essay.”

“The teachers, for me, have given me everything I needed to know to be successful and helped me to grow as a student and as a person!” said Darby Albanese. The Forrestdale eighth grader was recently selected by the staff to represent her School at the annual Monmouth County School Board Grade 8 Dialogue, at which she spoke about her positive experiences with teachers.

Remember: Nothing makes a Red Bank friend happier than to hear "I saw you on Red Bank Green!"
