The Little Egg Harbor Board of Education approved the following resolution which was sent to our elected representatives in Trenton to support the reevaluation of the state's funding formula for school aid. Little Egg Harbor was recently informed of a decrease in local school aid in excess of 1.5 million dollars. This cut in aid to our district may result in a reduction of services offered to our students including, but not limited to, increases in class size and major staff cuts.

Please reach out to your elected officials to express your dissatisfaction with the State's decision to cut our aid to Little Egg Harbor Township Schools in the wake of increased student enrollment and continued mandates.

Tomorrow is World Purple Day.

You may be asking yourself "What is World Purple Day?"

Purple day was created in 2008 by Cassidy Megan, a young girl from Canada, who has epilepsy and wanted to get people talking about the condition. Cassidy decided to use the color purple because lavender is recognized as the international flower of epilepsy. Cassidy not only wanted to raise awareness but also assure people with epilepsy that they are not alone.

Join us in supporting Epilepsy Awareness by wearing the color Purple on March 26th.

School Counselors Celebrate During National School Counseling Week, Feb. 59, 2024

National School Counseling Week 2024, “School Counseling: Standards-Based, Student-Focused,” sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), will be celebrated from Feb. 5–9, 2024, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of school counselors within U.S. school systems and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do. National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.

The Little Egg Harbor School District thanks its school counselors for being actively engaged in helping students examine their abilities, strengths, interests and talents; for working in a partnership with parents as they encounter the challenges of raising children in today’s world; for focusing on positive ways to enhance students’ academic, career and social/emotional development; and working with teachers and other educators to provide an educational system where students can realize their potential and set healthy, realistic and optimistic aspirations for themselves. School counselors are certified, experienced educators with a master’s degree in school counseling. The combination of their training and experience makes them an integral part of the total educational program.

“School counselors work with all students to remove barriers to learning by addressing students’ academic concerns, career options and social/emotional skills,” said Jill Cook, ASCA executive director. “School counseling programs help to increase student achievement and provide a much-needed resource for students, parents, teachers and administrators. School counselors are integral to student success.”

So we take this week to say "Thank You" to our incredible school counselors for all their hard work and dedication to our students.

The Little Egg Harbor Special Education Parents Advisory Group (LEH SEPAG) held their first "Hoop it Up" night on Wednesday, November 15th.

The basketball night of fun proved to be a success by bringing Pre-K - 6th grade students and families from all diversities together for various basketball activities. 

Coach Freddy Johnson and the Pinelands Regional High School basketball team volunteered their time for the event to help teach the students basketball basics, lead the dunking contest, the LEH SEPAG VS Basketball team game, and the parents vs kids game.

It was an unforgettable evening for both the students and their families.
