  • When Jake Met Greatness!

    TRS ASR student Jake Rice met Astronomer Neil deGrasse Tyson While Speaking in Asbury Park, NJ Dec 6th, 2018. Tyson's lecture was called “The Cosmic Perspective” There is no view of the world as emotionally potent as the one granted by a cosmic perspective. It’s one that sees Earth as a planet in a vast empty universe. It profoundly influences what we think and feel about science, culture, politics, and life itself.

    The Spirit Club and Mascots from Toms River South went to Childrens' Specialized Hospital on Monday evening where they sang Christmas songs, read "Twas the Night Before Christmas" and distributed gifts to each child at the hospital.

After those two activities, they then went back to the school where they enjoyed a holiday party. I think the best heading for this picture would be "SPREADING GOOD CHEER"

    The mother of a New Jersey state trooper struck and killed by a car while on duty is educating the public about New Jersey's " Move Over" law. Donna Setaro says she believes that her son, Trooper Marc Castellano, would still be alive if more people were aware of the law." It became a law in January 2009, and yet only 15 percent of the population is aware of it." The law requires drivers to change lanes or slow down when approaching a stopped emergency vehicle. Trooper Castellano was struck and killed by a car while working a case along the side of Interstate 195 in Howell on June 6, 2010. Donna says her mission is to educate New Jersey drivers about the law so that a similar tragedy does not happen again. One method that she uses effectively is to visit schools and educate students about the law. The presentation of the sign to Toms River South was performed on Monday, May 7th.The sign will be installed on the cement wall located in the parking lot of the tennis court and auxiliary field. It will face the street.

The film presentation entitled "South Baseball---The Spirit of Winning" was well-received by all those that attended the premiere showing. The story line was a tribute to the coaching abilities of Ken Frank, who is the coach with the most wins in high school baseball in New Jersey. At the time this article was written, Coach Frank has chalked up 870 victories at the "Home of the Indian." He is ranked 15th nationally and is a dedicated mentor who has had a profound impact on the lives of the players that he has coached during the past 40+ years. The film also traces the career of Todd Frazier, who was a member of the Little League World Series Championship Team, a star at High School South under Coach Frank, a star at Rutgers University, and then his career with the Cincinnati Reds, Chicago White Sox, the New York Yankees, and this year with the New York Mets. The film promotes a theme of how tough love can help young people win in sports and in life. It's a film that shows that a coach can make a positive difference in the lives of the young men that he coaches!. The picture shows from left to right the following: 1) Coach Frank...2) Film producer Sandra Levine...and 3) Assistant Coach Mitch Powitz
