June has arrived and testing is all over!! We had fun with our field days and we are now finishing up all the required academics for our children to move on to the 2013-14 school year. The 8th graders are counting down the days until graduation.....we will miss them as they move on to high school!
Our parents of Special Education students in all the sending districts are hosting a wonderful day of fun on June 26, 2013 at Brielle Park. The Circle of Friends Shore PAC will be selling advanced tickets for our first 'Spring into Summer Funday at all of the 6 elementary schools.

All proceeds will go to pay for the cost of the magnets and provide supplemental supplies/speakers for our Anti-Bullying mission. Magnets are available at the main office and will be sold at school functions throughout the remainder of the year. Thank you for supporting our Blazing for Peace- Anti Bullying Program.
As we refect on many of the wonderful experiences we had in 2012 we are forced to remember the most recent events such as the devastation to the Jersey Shore communities from Super Storm Sandy and the unspeakable massacre in Connecticut.
We need to be aware that many emotional reprocussions may be apparent months after the actual crisis. Some children may become withdrawn, have difficulty sleeping alone at night, etc. If you become aware of emotional changes in your children and need some assistance or advice, please reach out to our Crisis Team liason Mrs. Adrienne Mahon, School Social Worker at ext. 236 or Mrs. Beth O'Reilly, School Guidance Counselor at ext. 218.
