It is hard for me to believe that we have arrived in November already.    We are well on our way through the first marking period and the fall athletic season. First Marking Period report cards will be available through the Genesis Parent Portal on November 20th after 3:00 PM.  I want to thank our entire school community for their ongoing efforts to keep our school safe and healthy.


    The month of November is always associated with Thanksgiving celebrations.  Thanksgiving is a time to forget the daily routine of frenzied hustling and appreciate the now.  For me, I welcome the opportunity to relax with my family and reconnect with those I have not seen for some time. Now, more than ever, I encourage all of us to reflect upon all of the positives in our lives to be thankful for.  I want to wish the entire Point Pleasant Beach High School community a healthy and enjoyable Thanksgiving.


    November also marks the official close to the fall sports season.  Although this athletic season came with its challenges,  all of our student-athletes have performed quite impressively.  I always enjoy seeing our students succeed in any capacity.  


    Finally, I want to thank every member of our school community for making this such a great place for our students.  Especially this school year.  As this is the month of giving thanks, I am so thankful for the commitment of this community in making this school what it is.  I am continually impressed with the value everyone finds in all of the opportunities our small school offers.  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it.
