Barletta, Rivas Chosen as BRHS Students of the Week

BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Each week, two students at Bridgewater-Raritan High School will be honored as students of the week.

Students are chosen by teachers and staff in the high school.

The students of the week for the week of Sept. 25 are:

  • Maria Barletta - (nominated by Kristin Bonczek) Maria, a senior, showed genuine compassion by taking a moment to reach out to a struggling freshman by helping her to find her way to my class out on the turf for physical education. She didn't just point this student in the right direction, but with permission from her teacher, she took the time to walk this student up to me. Before leaving, Maria ensured that my student was okay. Maria's display of kindness went a long way for that student, and because of this, is more than worthy of receiving Student of the Week.
  • Jacob Rivas - (nominated by Michael Denver) Jacob exemplifies leadership, hard work and a positive attitude. He continues to lead by example and encourages other students to always do the right thing. He is a pleasure to have in class.

Editors Note - Every week we will publish the BRHS Students of the Week. Congratulations to all those students recognized.

A Call for Help: a Review on Somerset Regional Animal Shelter

October 9, 2017

To the Editor, 

This is mainly a call for help than a formal letter. I felt the need to tell my story to someone because this was the first time I was disappointed in my township. Or rather, I was disappointed in the shelter. And let me tell you why.

Two months ago, I found a kitten in the garage. I was not sure if he was okay, so I decided to give him to the shelter, in hopes that he ...
