Week of Respect
October 7th-11th, River Edge School District celebrated a Week of Respect. The purpose of this week was to send the message about the importance of respect in our lives, at school and in our relationships with each other. The focus this year is on Bystander Awareness, and the motto is to "Take a Stand Lend A Hand." All students signed a banner pledging to stand up for each other. The week kicked off the district's Character Education Program, a program that strives to develop character development in our students.There were fun activities that took place throughout the week, such as anti-bullying assemblies, pep rallies and a dime drive to raise money for hurricane sandy relief. The district raised over $2,000!! Special thanks to the PTO's and the River Edge Alliance Against Drugs for all of their help. Below are pictures of the students at a pep rally pledging to "Take A Stand Lend A Hand."
