When you’ve grown up in a small town, your memories often revolve around the comforting kind of feeling that anyone else’s mother, no matter their child-rearing differences or life circumstances, is a surrogate of your very own. That’s just how it is. The neighborhood concept.
Lately, in the Rumson-Fair Haven area, for the students who have little to no knowledge or cares about a vote on a $15 million plus referendum, it’s been all about school pictures. They’ve been more worried about striking that pose without some missing teeth, bad hair or the wrong outfit. Then there’s the class photo. Side-by-side posing and playing around, the snapshot is a lifetime keeper. Call it a class act.
Residents are advised that a police officer will be onsite at all times during the Third Street project. Most importantly, there will be an ongoing police presence to assure that all children have safe passage on their route to school.

Fair Haven’s Viola L. Sickles School officials are claiming major success with the annual PTA Book Fair.
Featuring various genres and titles from Scholastic Publishing, the Book Fair was held from Nov. 14 to 18. Family Night at the fair allows parents and siblings take part. It was held on the evening of Nov. 15 and was dubbed a “door-buster” success.
Many students and families took the opportunity to buy books for use in the classroom as well, using the teachers’ wish lists as a guideline.
This year’s Book Fair at Sickles School was organized by PTA Book Fair Committee members Jen Baron, Vicky Hays, Heather Lombardo, Kerry Maguire, and Sheilah Olson.
The Knollwood School Book Fair is set for April.
