Exchange students looking for host families for the remainder  of the school year - Have you ever thought about hosting an exchange student? The Rotary Exchange Program is looking for a few host families to host exchange students for the rest of the 2018 school year. These students are at Harwood High School and  are great kids . They need to be placed in a home within the Harwood school district.  This can be a rewarding experience for the host family and the student!  We are looking for new families for these students as soon as possible, although there is some flexibility. For more info or if you are just interested in getting more information for another time (the Rotary hosts students every year) please contact Ron Gulyas at

iDefineMe- A Workshop for Parents Monday, January 29th, 2018 - 6:30 PM - HUHS

This workshop is for Adults Only – ALL Parents are Welcome!
(note- CBMS 7th and 8th graders will attend a presentation by this presenter in the morning of January 29th)
Today’s world impacts our children in ways unimaginable for previous generations.  Consequently, old methods of communicating with kids seem inadequate.  Trying to get through to our children can feel impossible.  Often, they are searching for the definition of who they are through negative outlets. This leaves parents confused, searching for answers, and striving to have profound influence over their children
This workshop is designed to give parents a better understanding of the issues facing our children: drug and alcohol usage, vaping, the impact of technology (digital distraction), bullying, risky behavior, exposure to adult material, distracted driving, and several others. Armed with the knowledge of what your children face today, this program will provide effective methods of communication through an in-depth understanding of how children receive information and what motivates them to want to apply it.
Our speaker will incorporate real-life stories and examples from both his extensive law enforcement career working with youth and technology crime, as well as his experience as a parent and step-parent having raised seven children.

About Our Speaker - Andrew W. Donofrio

Andrew’s first career was in law enforcement, where he led a large and productive Computer Crimes Unit for the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office. After finishing that career, he started and continues to stay involved with a successful data assurance and IT security firm, Cyberology Consultants. After discovering how his passions for life long education, continual growth, and commitment to others can integrate beautifully into a new chapter in his life, Andrew decided to pursue his ultimate passions: speaking, strategic intervention, and coaching. Whether working with business owners, entrepreneurs, parents, college students or teens, Andrew leads people to discover their goals and construct plans for success. Combining his degree in psychology, years of experience in working with youth through law enforcement, Andrew has developed a unique approach to helping clients identify the obstacles and impediments that prevent them from succeeding. Most importantly, Andrew helps people recognize barriers that prevent them from being the best they can be and develop strategies to overcome such obstacles.  Ultimately, he strives to help people not just achieve a life of success, but a life of fulfillment.
