5 Things You Need to Know Today: Wednesday, April 4
What you need to know this first week of April in Oceanport and Little Silver.
Sun day: Okay, even if spring break doesn't offically start for another couple of days, today's weather is going to have us walking on that proverbial sunshine. According to the National Weather Service, Wednesday is a sunny one with temperatures creeping up into the high 60s and no wind to speak of. So even if you're not going away, present company included, you'll still feel like you've gotten away with something.
Breakfast meeting: In case you forgot to write it down on your calendar (or plug it in it your the tech savvy type), today is the monthly meeting for the Little Silver Friends of Different Learners at Panera in Shrewsbury starting at 10 a.m. If nothing else, just go and get a croissant and a big cup of coffee and enjoy the good company
Lax fan alert: The RBR Varsity Lacrosse team will take on Manasquan at home tomorrow, under that promised abundant sunshine, at 4 p.m. Don't forget your sunscreen.
Cool it now: If you have a high schooler, you know that there is intense pressure on the kids to excel in all areas. And sometimes as parents, we buy into that and start to exert pressure from our end. The Red Bank Regional PTO and Booster Club is sponsoring a screening of Race to Nowhere on April 17 to address some of the pressures our culture puts on kids to achieve.
Heads up: From the Oceanport Police Department:
