Deadline for Transportation Reimbursement is Next Thursday

Parents of FH students enrolled in Kindergarten through Grade 8 for 2018–19 may be eligible to receive funds to offset the cost of providing their own transportation in lieu of busing. Most towns in our area will reimburse parents of nonpublic school students for transportation.

Please visit the Parent Portal to find the B6T Form and Instructions under Quick Links. Please read the instructions carefully. Parents must submit one form for each child. Completed forms are due to Far Hills no later than next Thursday, February 15. You may drop them off at reception or scan and email to Elaine Matsuda.

Shop for Spirit Wear at the Falcons' Find to Benefit Morristown Soup Kitchen

When you purchase spirit wear and accessories from the Falcons' Find now through February 3, 10% of the proceeds will benefit the Morristown Soup Kitchen!

Earlier this year, members of the Service Learning Club partnered with FH Grade 1 to assemble and deliver personal care bags for the clients of Morristown Soup Kitchen. The funds raised by the Falcons' Find/Service Day promotion will enable the club to purchase more items to continue their support of this worthy organization. Club members noted that food stamps can only be used for consumables; therefore, the need for basic personal hygiene products, like toothpaste, deodorant, and soap, is great and ongoing.

Once the items have been purchased, the club members and Grade 1 classes will assemble more bags that will be delivered to the soup kitchen along with greeting cards made by the first graders.

The Falcons' Find is open today and every Thursday, 2:30–4:00 p.m. as well as Wednesdays and Fridays 8–9:30 a.m. The store will also be open on Service Learning Day, February 3, 8:30 a.m.–10:30 a.m.

Shop the fantastic collection of spirit wear and accessories from Vineyard Vines, Under Armour, Mountain Khaki, Camelback and others to support the Morristown Soup Kitchen.
