PPHS Teacher Frank Ring releases his first book

Palisades Park High School graduate (‘81) and Technology teacher Frank Ring has just released his first book, Walking for Health and Fitness.

Mr. Ring became an avid walker while overcoming a serious back issue 3 years ago.

“I needed to ease into getting in shape and lose some weight. I also needed a way to do it without reinjuring my back. Walking seemed like a natural activity to get started in building stronger leg, back, and core muscles. What I discovered was that walking was so easy to do, gave me a great physical workout and, most surprisingly, make a huge improvement in my mental wellbeing and outlook. I compare walking to meditation, and I get to see some great sites along the way.”

On why he wrote the book, Mr. Ring says, “I felt compelled to share this with people who need to get in shape and/or relieve physical distress. The result is this 140-page eBook. The best part was that most of the main ideas from the book were thought up while out walking. This is the ultimate in multi-tasking.”

Students from Shin Cheon HS in Korea visit PPHS

On October 11th, 24 students and teachers from Shin Cheon High School in Korea visited Palisades Park Jr./Sr. High School. Mr. Donohue and Mrs. Munn welcomed them to PPHS and spoke about the format they would follow as they attended classes in the morning. Mrs. Retkwa had arranged for student council members to be paired with each of the visiting students. They went to classes and lunch with their partners. While students were in classes, Mr. Donohue and Mrs. Munn gave the teachers a tour of the school and highlighted the school’s features. The visit concluded with Mrs. Munn leading a question and answer session in the auditorium. The students were wildly enthusiastic about their visit, commenting on the small class sizes when compared to their classes in Korea. They were appreciative of the friendships they had cultivated with the students from PPHS. Yoon Young Beol, the principal of Shin Cheon High School expressed his desire that his high school and PPHS become sister schools. Students in both schools had a great experience. They exchanged contacts and the student council members of PPHS were invited to Shin Cheon High School in Korea.
