Upcoming Events

Red Bank, N.J. – The Red Bank Charter School (RBCS) is pleased to announce the launch of  the school's new Web site. The Web site reflects RBCS thematic goal of  putting the "Mission in Motion."  The newly launched website can be found at Red Bank Charter School and features a more interactive platform that presents both visual and written information.

RBCS’s new Web site launch is a product of months of collaboration and diligent work amongst its Board of Trustees members (BoT), and a select group of faculty and staff who have worked on creating a site that is visually appealing to its visitors, integrates social media, and  informative to its users. 

The site was intended to encompass RBCS’s goal of “Mission In Motion," and the launch of this Web site represents this mission in many ways. The site is now more interactive, as it features various links to RBCS’s multiple programs and affiliations. “Mission In Motion” is clearly visible on the Web site's main page, through the updated photo stream, and also through the media gallery, where photographs and videos are uploaded for viewing.  

“Mission In Motion” is a theme that is not only applicable to the RBCS Web site itself, but also the school’s curriculum and extra events that students can become involved with. The Lifelong Fitness Program is one of RBCS’s school goals for the 2012-2013 academic year, which teaches and encourages children healthy exercise habits that are continued through adulthood. This program is unique as it is different from traditional physical education classes. The Lifelong Fitness Program offers a unique opportunity for the school to get support from its community partners and  to encourage healthy eating habits and practices to combat childhood obesity.

The Lifelong Fitness Program focuses on wellness and fitness through nutrition and exercise activities. Some examples of this program include activities such as Yoga class for first graders, ballet class for second graders at Kathryn Barnett School of Dance, an ice skating session for fifth graders at Red Bank Armory, and a challenging cross fit class for eighth graders at Cross Fit of Red Bank.

Another program that RBCS offers to represent “Mission In Motion” is the Service Learning Program. RBCS core belief is that all children should learn to become responsible, respectful citizens. The comprehensive Service Learning Curriculum in grades K-8 helps students learn more about themselves and their personal talents through working with the community around them. Students are able to complete school-wide and classroom Service Learning activities, and those in upper-grades have the opportunity to have individual internships. 

Throughout the town, students have taken part in activities such as painting storm drains with the Clean Communities Council, delivering snacks at the Habitat for Humanity site, and making lunches and having conversations with citizens at the Senior Center. 

In addition there is an Internship program that eighth graders participate with community partners. All 19 Eighth-grade students from RBCS are participating as Interns with local business establishments and community members to prepare students for the workforce. The charter school has a unique program, running for about 12 years, that places eighth-graders in jobs. Some of the community partners who offer Internships are: David Prown of Prowns,  Red Bank Green, Tavolo Pronto, Red Bank River Center, Soul Kitchen, Boys and Girls Club, The Red Bank Police Department, The Two River Theatre, Hair & Company, Paint A Tee. The support of our community partners enables RBCS to keep the mission moving forward.

RBCS’s new website launch marks just one of the school’s steps towards its goal of putting the “Mission in Motion." The interactive and user-friendly site welcomes parents, students and the community to learn more about Red Bank Charter School, the curriculum, activities, and the school's goals.
