I agree , what a great day for our children to learn about the place where they live and how toRead More support and save our ocean & bay. This is important for our Eco system , so all can enjoy the beach , salt flats , pine barrens and how each is effected by the other..a fun learning day for all...

Dang, I got back to Brick a week ago and saw no mention of this event until the day of. It's tooRead More late for me today and I have plans for tomorrow. From the looks of the weather the Thunderbirds will be doing their low altitude routine. I wish I could have taken some pictures of the Spitfire

A Resident, Yes I do realize they are two different groups. At the end of the day the town andRead More schools in any town should be working together. I don't feel like they work together from what I saw a few years back. I just read an article recently that stated the superintendent of schools is what sets the tone of the town. Some might not agree with the article. I happened to. My own experience I happen to believe the schools in point pleasant beach are run poorly as well as the town. It is a show. A lot of the same people who is asking for donations from the businesses for the schools are bad mouthing some of the same businesses that is helping them. I know the school has no control over their license renewal but the town should think twice if it affects other parts of their town. It is one town and every decision made affects the other. I never heard of Shore 2 Recover before Sandy. School benefits were always titled just that school benefits. I feel its misleading.

Rick Ricky, haven't seen the article you are referencing so I can't truly comment on that. But IRead More will disagree with the Superintendent setting the tone of the town. Superintendents and Mayors are both (and should both) be looking at their own domain first. They are not mutually exclusive, but they are not married either. I have no daily inside knowledge of the school, but I don't see a poorly run district. If I remember correctly, they share a Super, a Bus. Admin, and a teacher or two. That sounds like some smart use of people and some financial control. Can't imagine its run that bad if people from other towns are willing to pay their local school taxes and then pay more to send their kids to Point Beach.
