As my loyal Bay Head Blog and Roxy's Best Of... readers know, our family summers at the beach in Bay Head, New Jersey, but our full time home (where London and Maddie go to school) is up north in Mendham Township. If you do live down at the beach all year round, however, please consider a tax deductible donation before the end of the year 2008 to support the Bay Head School Foundation. Rex and I received the following letter that I'd like to share with you:
Dear Friends of the Bay Head Community:
We are appealing to you in this, our annual letter, for funds to continue the Bay Head School Foundation's mission of supporting Bay Head School in its efforts to maintain the tremendous quality of its curriculum and the way in which it is delivered.
The Bay Head School Foundation was founded when Bay Head School had to scale back as the budget could no longer meet all curriculum and facility needs to maintain the program level desired for the Bay Head School children. Three years ago, the voters approved a referendum making it possible for the district to bring our facility forward to meet the State mandated standards. The same year, the Bay Head School Board launched a new organizational structure including sharing services. We entered an inter-local agreement with Point Pleasant Beach to share their Superintendent with Bay Head School, which has become an example for the future in other districts.
