Highlights from the Freehold Regional High School District

FRHSD Recognized by the New Jersey School Public Relations Association

The New Jersey School Public Relations Association (NJSPRA) recently announced the winners of their 2017 School Communication Awards. The Freehold Regional High School District received second place in the Website Category. The district’s redesigned website launched at the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year.

According to their website, “NJSPRA’s School Communication Awards recognize outstanding print and electronic collateral material in New Jersey educational communications programs. The primary role of the professional school communicator is to disseminate important information about schools and school districts to all constituencies. NJSPRA developed the School Communication Awards competition to recognize professional school communicators in New Jersey, and the products they develop, that go above and beyond to disseminate important messages to their publics.”

Law & Public Service Students Host Young Voter Registration Breakfast

As a part of their senior project, two Law & Public Service Learning Center students hosted a Young Voter Registration Breakfast for their peers on May 24. The event’s organizers, students Elizabeth Bell and Nicole Abelev, invited Monmouth County Freeholder Serena DiMaso and County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon to speak to students. Freeholder DiMaso and Ms. Hanlon explained the voter registration process to the group of approximately 100 students, who were able to register to vote on the spot. Also helping on the day of the event were students Amanda Hawley and Dylan Mullins.

The Law & Public Service Learning Center at Colts Neck High School is a rigorous program geared toward highly motivated students with demonstrated interests and abilities in history, politics, government, law, volunteerism, and leadership. Skills targeted for development include problem-solving, critical thinking, reading, and writing, oral communication, research, and organization. The values of citizenship, justice, and service serve as the foundation for academic study.
