True Detective: A Spring Lake Marine goes to Hollywood
Jerry Carino, Asbury Park Press
Lee Weisert is an institution at Manasquan High School, having taught theater and music for 46 years and counting. One of the perks of his job is bragging about the impressive lineage of entertainers who once walked the halls there: Jack Nicholson, of course, but also Broadway’s Michael Leslie and singer Chris Pinnella.
Joining that list is Michael Broderick, who landed a breakthrough role on the third season of HBO’s "True Detective," which debuted last Sunday.
January Benchmark / S1 Final Exam Schedule
This year Manasquan High School has decided to implement benchmark assessments in new year-long courses. This provides students an opportunity to be assessed at the midpoint of their courses on the material from the first half of the year.
It is important to understand that the benchmark assessments are not midterms in the traditional sense. The grade on the benchmark will appear only in the gradebook, not on any report card and will be incorporated into the student's second marking period average at 15% of that marking period grade.
Students enrolled in first semester, half-year (S1) courses will take their final exams during the designated benchmark periods.
In order to give students an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge thoroughly, we have established a modified schedule with extended periods (74 minutes) during which the benchmarks and S1 final exams will take place.
Benchmarks and final exams will occur during the highlighted, 74-minute periods on the dates below.
2:30 PM - 4:30 PM A Day Make-Up Exams (Period 1 & Period 5)
2:30 PM - 4:30 PM B Day Make-Up Exams (Period 4 & Period 8)
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Staff In-Service Day - Schools Closed for Students
