The Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School’s (RFH) Girls Soccer team is putting itself in someone else’s cleats.
The girls’ team has come a long way since the late 1970s, when one girl raised a ruckus by scoring a goal for girl athletes by using some fancy footwork to earn a spot on the boys’ team. Since 1984, there’s been a girls’ team at RFH and its a winning one in more ways than one — teamwork to score for one another and others.Continue reading RFH Girls Soccer: Scoring Wins on Field & In Charity

It’s not just about the walk and the diploma. It’s about the milestone moments — the before, during and after — of eighth grade graduation. It’s the graduation that puts students on a new plane to growing up — getting set to go to high school.
Last week, Fair Haven’s Knollwood School eighth graders shared many of those milestone moments. They met at their alma mater to take a trip to the high school where most of them will be launching their teen education experience. They graduated. They took a walk of tradition down Third Street, cheered on my family and friends, all the way back to where their Fair Haven educational experience started — at Viola L. Sickles School. They celebrated with a dance. They said goodbye to their elementary and middle school years.
A few Fair Haven moms sent their photos to offer a glimpse into the moments. Take a look at our slideshow and photo gallery …
Thanks to Joanne Joanne Mitchell Formisano, Courtney Kemler, Beth Solin, Lauren Steets, Melina Calabretta, Erin Simpson and Lynn for providing the photos!
Those moments before the graduation walk are sometimes the most treasured. Classmates huddle together, clown around and, yes, shed a few tears knowing that it is the last time they’ll all be together as high school students.
Rumson-Fair Haven Retrospect visited with the Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School Class of 2018 before the walk.
Here’s a glimpse of what we saw backstage … (Click to enlarge! Apologies for the blurriness. Time for a new camera … and/or photographer.)
