Press release from Fair Haven School District

The Fair Haven Board of Education honored the achievements of Knollwood School students with a pizza party and ceremony held at the school on the evening of June 9.

There was plenty to celebrate, as Board members, along with Superintendent Nelson Ribon and Principal Kevin Davis, recognized accomplishments that included a championship finish by the Knollwood School Girls Softball Team, as well as outstanding showings by the school’s musical groups and participants in a regional Spring Stock Market Game.

Softball coach and Literacy Teacher Christina Jarosinki noted that her team accomplished the noteworthy feat of clinching both their division and league championship titles, by defeating Tinton Falls to claim the SISBL title.

“It has been an absolute honor to watch the team grow and progress, and it has been beautiful to see the eighth graders embrace the sixth and seventh graders,” said Jarosinski. “This year, we all learned lessons from one another and it truly felt like we were a family.”

Knollwood Softball Team members include eighth graders Alina Arko, Sarah Finley, Jeanne Gagliano, Jackie Hanson, Erin McKay, Amanda Merton, Jamie O’Donnell, Maggie Ryan, and Gillian Thorp; seventh graders Jane Banahan, Kirsten Felsman, Chloe Freglette, Kate Halcrow (Manager), Katherine Harby, and Ceci Newman; and sixth graders Cece Arko and Devon Reid.
