Spirit Merchandise On Sale

Carolina Beach Elementary School’s PTO is still selling items several items to show your school spirit! From magnets to pencils and tote bags to insulated cups there is a little something for everyone. The new school log features the school’s mascot a starfish. The story behind the starfish is as follows:  One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.  Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?” The youth replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean.  The surf is up and the tide is going out.  If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.” “Son,” the man said, “don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish?  You can’t make a difference!” After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf.  Then, smiling at the man, he said…” I made a difference for that one.” Items can be purchased at the school before classes start.
