Press release from Red Bank Regional High School
This school year saw the debut of a spacious new 2,700 sq. ft. fitness center at Red Bank Regional High School, a much desired addition that came to fruition through a a financial commitment by the Board of Education to fund the construction, and from community donations to furnish the space. The BUC Backer Foundation and BUC Backer Booster Club fundraised over $75,000 to provide state-of-the art equipment, and the addition cost of $1,070,000 was funded under the district’s capital improvement fund.
The new facility allows for 60 to 70 students to work out comfortably; since its opening this past fall, its utilization has seen about that number on any given afternoon. During the day, physical education classes visit the facility to instruct students how to use the equipment. Lesson plans are being written to incorporate use of the facility into next year’s curriculum.
