The air is getting warmer and the sun sure seems brighter. Spring is here……..finally! The Jersey Shore is a wonderful place to be at this time of the year. As we all know, the end of winter can bring some challenges. The quickly improving weather can make it difficult to concentrate on our daily responsibilities at work, or for our students, at school. As a community committed to the education of our children, we must remember the school year does not end until that final day in June.
May is an exciting and busy time for all of us at Point Pleasant Beach High School. AP Testing occurs throughout the first two weeks of the month. These exams are the culminating experiences for our students who took on our most challenging courses. The NJ Biology Competency Test takes place on May 31 and June 1. This test will take place each morning for all students enrolled in a Biology course this year. Additionally, our staff and student organizations are hustling to put the final touches on the many upcoming end of the year celebrations.
I want to thank all of you for your continued support throughout this school year. As it winds to an end, our students must remember to maintain a strong focus on their academics. I encourage you to support this mission - as you always do. Finally, a friendly reminder on the importance of attendance. Absences from school can add up quickly. As the end of the school year moves closer, the time necessary to make up missed assignments, quizzes and tests becomes less and less. Thank you for your continued support.
