In order to prepare our children to be productive and responsible citizens, the Mission of the Little Egg Harbor Township School District is to develop and maintain a collaborative and nurturing learning environment fostering individual abilities and encouraging all children to achieve their highest potential. We expect all children to meet or exceed the grade level benchmarks set forth in the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards (NJCCCS).
The district is carefully monitoring the impending storm. If any changes are made to the regular school schedule parents will be notified immediately.
The LEH BOE meeting scheduled for Monday, January 26th has been rescheduled due to the storm. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 3rd. The Public Session will begin at 5:30pm in the Multi-Purpose Room of the Frog Pond School.________________________________________________________________________

| Preschool registrations are accepted throughout the school year. To register your child, you will need your child's birth certificate, immunization record, current physical, and proof of residency in Little Egg Harbor. You can find more information on the Family Central page. The preschool registration packets are now available in both English and Spanish.

|Incorporating Animal-Assisted Therapy (AAT) as an additional intervention within a child’s educational plan is a fairly new concept and Nola loves her job. Nola’s purpose is to work with children who are physically, developmentally, or emotionally disabled, as well as others who can benefit from the unique qualities that interaction with an animal can provide. AAT is goal-directed - there is a specific end in mind. Nola will help motivate the achievement of a wide variety of goals and objectives within a school environment. You can visit Nola's website here.________________________________________________________________________|
A message from the

Dr. Maryann Banks
I am honored to be serving the Little Egg Harbor Township School Community as your Interim Superintendent. My primary goals as Interim are to ensure the safety of our students and staff, and to work with the Board of Education and Administration to continue our mission to facilitate the educational, social and emotional growth of our students.
The accomplishments of our students are a tribute not only to their individual talents, but also to our actively involved parents, as well as the dedication and commitment of an outstanding faculty. It is only through working together that we can continue to provide only the very best for our students. I look forward to working with all of you in the coming months!
