RFH Students Collect Supplies for Hurricane Harvey Victims

On September 19, members of the Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) Chinese, French, and Spanish National Honor Societies held a school supplies drive to benefit the Texas and Louisiana school districts impacted by Hurricane Harvey. The drive was organized in conjunction with OnCourse, an educational company that provides lesson-planning software to RFH and many other school districts across the country. The collected the supplies were delivered by OnCourse to affected schools on the Louisiana/Texas border.

“Last year, OnCourse appealed for help to benefit Louisiana schools affected by Hurricane Matthew,” said RFH French Honor Society Advisor and French teacher Christine Berg. “The French Honor Society held fundraisers and worked with the RFH Film Club to create a message of support for the Livingston Parish School District that appeared on the district’s Facebook page.”

This year, Ms. Berg teamed up again with the OnCourse contact, Monserrate Gonzales, to collect school supplies drive for schools impacted by Hurricane Harvey. “I also reached out to Christina Gauss and Rebecca Wang, advisors to the Spanish and Chinese National Honor Societies,” she said. “It was wonderful having so many students be involved in the drive. We are very grateful for the generosity of the RFH school community.”
