August, 2022 Class of 2026/Transferring Students Edition
Welcome Class of 2026 & New Students
We are so happy and grateful to be welcoming you to Somerset Berkley Regional High School for the 2022-23 school year. It's a new day and a new year and we are eager to get going with our new school year! I urge you, even if you never have before, to get involved in all SBRHS has to offer. I also strongly encourage you to check your email for updates as the administration, teachers and staff utilize this on a regular basis for disseminating information out to our student body and their families. Please take the time to read through this newsletter as it contains some very important information about our upcoming year. We are still preparing, so please stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
On behalf of the faculty and staff, we are dedicated to helping our students achieve their goals and, perhaps, even create new goals that they didn't even know they had! We are here for you to achieve in your academics, but also care about you as individuals and people. If you need any assistance or guidance, please reach out to your teachers, counselors, or administrators--we are all here to help! Work hard and dream big! As some of you are already realizing, these four years go by very fast--make the most of them! We look forward to seeing you soon.
