Every year, students, teachers, parents, alumni and friends of Saint Mary School jump in the icy cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean in January to raise money to make improvement to our school. In past years, the money raised has help to outfit the middle school with iPads, upgrade wifi in every classroom, install air conditioning and most recently helped to complete the new science lab at the Elementary School!
Gov. Phil Murphy signed into law Jan. 8 a bill that doubles funding for security in nonpublic schools.
Under the bill, religious and private schools in the state will see security funding increase from $75 to $150 per student. The additional $11.3 million in funding will go to various security measures and upgrades.
