Students requested the moment of silence at the Board of Education meeting last night.
A Barnegat High School student who died earlier this week and has been described as an "honor student, [who was] looking forward to graduation and joining the military" will be memorialized by the high school with a moment of silence, according to the Superintendent Karen Wood. Wood addressed the issue after several students appeared at a Board of Education meeting last night to appeal for a moment of silence for their classmate, whom several identified as Kerrin Ramesar. "Not everyone knew him but he meant a lot to everyone," said Barnegat junior Ashley Hall, who spoke on behalf of about a three dozen students. "Today there was a lot of arguing between staff and students because we wanted a moment of silence, and I think it would be in …

Last year, the team placed third in the United States in their division.
The Barnegat High School Varsity Cheerleaders will once again be going to The UCA Nationals Competition in Orlando, Florida, and an upcoming fundraiser should help send them on their way. Last year, the team placed third in the U.S. in their division at the National High School Cheerleading Championship in Orlando, Fla. That year, the girls captured the third-place spot in the Large Varsity Division II category, besting about 30 of the top teams of their size from similarly sized schools around the country. To help with travel expenses for this year, Marchioni's Pizza & Pasta Restaurant located in the Genuardi's Plaza will be hosting BHS Cheerleader Day from 1 p.m. until 9 p.m. on Sunday Jan. 27th, 2013. Marchioni's will be donating 15% …

Miracle on 34th Street starts tonight.
It's the holiday story we all know so well. A white-bearded man who calls himself Kris Kringle takes the job of playing Santa for Macy's after the previous Santa takes in a few too many holiday "spirits," and informs Kringle he is going to be "sleigh sick." In a twist, the woman who hires Kris, Doris, wants her daughter to avoid becoming "gullible" and tells her daughter not to believe in Santa. But Kris' insistence that he's the real deal Santa Claus confuses Susan, and starts some conflict between Doris, and her could-be boyfriend, Fred. The Bengal Theatre Company of Barnegat High School will be performing Miracle on 34th Street on December 13, 14, and 15 at 7:00 p.m., and December 15 at 2:00 p.m. This classic tale about holiday cheer …

Presentations were made at Tuesday night's Board of Education meeting.
Barnegat schools will soon have solar panels, upgraded security access systems and more energy efficient buildings as a result of projects which are underway throughout the district. Contractors for the projects, appearing at Tuesday night's Board of Education meeting at Barnegat High School, made presentations regarding the status of the work being done. Guy Vander and Mike Henrich of Johnson Control spoke about the Energy Savings Improvement Program (ESIP). A law passed in 2009 allows for districts to take on these ESIP programs as long as the savings offset the cost of the project. "The district will have guaranteed savings that will offset the cost of the project, and no tax money will be used for it to happen...it has to pay for …

250 proud graduates tossed their hats in the air at the Barnegat High School auditorium yesterday.
While the rain pounded outside, parents, relatives and teachers were crammed into the Barnegat High School gym Tuesday evening, as the new graduates said good-bye to their school, and officials and teachers offered words of wisdom to young people about to enter the "real world." "Promise me, promise all of us, that when tomorrow comes, you will take what you have learned here at the Barnegat High School, and you will impress life — your new teacher," said Heather Hawley, senior class advisor. Of the 250 graduates, 62 percent, or 155 students are going to a two-year or a four-year college, while the rest will be joining the army, pursuing trade school or getting jobs. The colleges this year's crop of BHS graduates will be attending include …

In General English, Elizabeth Hults nurtures her students and asks provocative questions. In Honors English, Susan Beaudoin says sometimes it's tempting to forget her students are still kids.
We sat in on several classes and watched the teachers engage the kids with questions, facts and challenges. Each class seemed to be its own world — with the different learners and the teachers' different styles shaping the students' experience. Here is a snapshot of two English classes, each challenging the students in a different way. Ms. Hults' First Period General English Class Elizabeth Hults exuded energy early in the morning, as she greeted each one of her students with an affectionate smile at the door. Hults, 29, of Forked River was wearing black and orange, the vivid Barnegat Bengal colors. "I've been called very dynamic," she said. In the classroom, she had her students walk around and write ideas on posters she had pinned on the…
As part of our special Barnegat High School project, we bring you a look into the workings of high school democracy.
It's just after 12:30 p.m. Students have settled into their Period 4 classes when Principal Joe Saxton begins the announcement: "Teachers with sophomore classes please bring your classes to the auditorium. If you have just a few sophomores in your class, please send them by themselves." Outside the auditorium doors, Kevin Aquilano, president of the 2012 senior class, and other senior class officers are waiting. In their hands are ballots for the election of officers for next year's junior class. P.J. Pansini keeps up a running stream of jokes to remind the students that the assembly is for soon-to-be juniors only. "If you just got your permit, you're might be a junior," Pansini says, handing ballots to passing students. "If you're a junior…
