To kick off the new school year, Ocean City Elementary School last month presented “Stand Up, Speak Up,” an anti-bullying program written by a committee of teachers that encourages children to stand up and speak up when they are being bullied or see bullying happening around them. Pictured, from left, are fourth-graders Jabria Lewis, Charlotte Edmunds, Zak Krasner, Chelsea Van Vonno, Frances Baptiste, Gavin Conner, Allison Marx and Teague Quillin, who performed an anti-bullying skit, complete with song and dance, during the pep rally.
If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally. It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.
