Barnegat Bay Blitz 2013
The Barnegat Bay Blitz, an event led by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and New Jersey Clean Communities Council, involves various partners throughout Ocean County, such as towns and schools, coming together and focusing on the local environment to help clean up the bay and watershed area. The goal is to promote awareness of our connection to the bay, and to help appreciate Barnegat Bay and our natural resources. Our school participated in this spring's event by visiting the lighthouse, cleaning up our school grounds, cleaning up the marshes and beaches, as well as planting dune grass and other beach plants. Our students thoroughly enjoy cleaning up their local environment, and truly feel that the Barnegat Bay Blitz is the best field trip!
Thanks again to our Board of Education for the asparagus crowns and to the Student Health Office for the pansies.

LBI Grade 5 Students Are Going to the White House Tuesday
Mrs. Obama will be joined by children from New Jersey communities that were affected by Hurricane Sandy, as well as children who helped plant the garden in April.
Washington, DC – On Tuesday, May 28 at 1:30 PM ET, First Lady Michelle Obama will join school children from across the country to harvest the summer crop from the White House Kitchen Garden. For this harvest, the First Lady invited children from two New Jersey communities that were affected by Hurricane Sandy. The First Lady also invited back all the children who helped plant the garden in April so they could see the fruits of their labors. She will be joined by students from Somerville, MA; Knox County, TN; Milton, VT and Washington, DC.
Mrs. Obama planted a vegetable garden on the South Lawn to initiate a national conversation around the health and well being of our nation – a conversation that evolved into her Let’s Move! initiative to solve the problem of childhood obesity within a generation.
