LEAD ANALYSIS RESULTS CONFIRM SAFE LEVELS AT SGES: The borough coordinates water testing monthly from different sources throughout our building. We follow the recommended three year cycle for lead testing. However, in light of the concerns that several towns are experiencing, the borough and school coordinated a separate lead analysis. The results came back in today and are excellent, with less than 0.001 particles per million. Mrs. Seeley met with Mr. McArthur from the borough's water department to review the results and express the school's appreciation for scheduling the additional testing.
Congratulations to our Girls' Basketball Team and Mrs. Genis for an amazing season! They are the Division Runner Ups for the 37th Run for the Roses Tournament. Kudos to Molly for being selected for the All Tournament Team! Once again, our Patriots did an amazing job!
Kindergarten through eighth graders engage in Financial Literacy classes centered on money management, wise consumerism and career exploration. Students in grades 5, 6 and 8 put their newfound knowledge to the test in a budgeting activity at Junior Achievement's Finance Park during a culminating experience. This program exceeds the standards required for financial literacy standards. These classes teach students the basics when it comes to economics and how their education will eventually relate to their future job. Of course, they all include fun activities to better instill the lessons, which build on one another through the years.
Sea Girt students in grades 3-8 exceeded state and national averages in both LAL and Math. On average, 90% of general education students met or exceeded grade level proficiency in both LAL and Math. After reviewing the total percentage of students meeting or exceeding grade level proficiency (levels 4 and 5) of districts in Monmouth County, Sea Girt District ranked first in several areas including: grades 5 & 6 math and grades 3 & 4 language arts literacy. Sea Girt District ranked as one of the top five districts in the county in mathematics for grades 3, 7 and 8 as well as language arts for grades 5 and 7. The SGES administration commends the teachers and students for their outstanding preparation through daily lessons and activities.
The SGES Girls and Boys Basketball Teams enjoyed an undefeated 2015-2016 season and are the MCAL National League Champions. Exemplary leadership by the seventh and eighth graders on both teams was an important part of the teams' success. The teams are coached by SGES teachers, Ms. Cortney Genis and Mr. Ryan Ritchey. The teams will move on to the playoffs which are slated to begin in mid-February. GO PATRIOTS!
"I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent," said Mahatma Gandi.

SGES has 8 standing desks throughout several classrooms. The height of the desks can be adjusted and there is a foot swing that students may choose to use for movement as they stand and work. Students choose when they wish to use them. Even some of the faculty have elected to use standing desks at times. The desks are popular and the teachers are supportive of giving the students the option to use them. Since the pilot was such a success, additional desks have been ordered so that there will be standing desks in all of the classrooms that would like them this year.
Your child’s safety and well-being are of utmost importance. Our school participates in a variety of safety drills. Our school participates in fire, severe weather, bus evacuation and emergency response drills throughout the school year to ensure our students and employees know what to do should an emergency situation occur. The SGPD or SGFD are present for most of our drills. The school administration regularly debriefs with them following the drill, then provides feedback to the staff and students. We appreciate the partnership between our school and the borough's safety experts.
