The month of October is a busy one at Red Bank Regional High School, with a full schedule of special programs and celebrations beginning today, October 7, when RBR observes a state-mandated Week of Respect that keynotes each morning with students reading “quotes of respect” over the student P.A., accompanied by “music engendering the same theme.”

The school’s in-house RBRTV will feature student-created videos throughout the week, keyed to the theme of Respect. Other highlights, as outlined by the school’s press office, include:

  • Lunch time (from 10:27 – 11:39 am) will take on a fair-like atmosphere, with tables set up by every club doing outreach to everyone in the school, encouraging their participation.
