New Format for Weekly Information

We are going to try sending a school newsletter via Facebook, Twitter, and our website (in the Twitter Feed on the right hand side) in lieu of the weekend calls. After a few weeks of newsletters, data will be analyzed as to how many recipients get the newsletter compared to the weekend calls. If you have a preference, please comment on the Facebook post or Twitter feed.


Our website contains a lot of year-long information. The newsletter will be focused on current events and happenings.

The Leader in Me for Families

As a Leader in Me School, we feel it's important to include our families in our learning! To kick off this process, we'll be giving away 10 copies of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families. If you would like to be entered into the drawing, you can comment on this post or tweet or email Mrs. Strope at laurie.strope@onslow.k12.nc.us by 5pm on January 13!

A Message from Nurse Cavenaugh

This is just a reminder that our school is a drug free zone. All medication on our campus, prescription or over the counter must be ordered by a health care provider.

School personnel will not administer any medication to students unless they have received a medication form properly complete and signed by both doctor and parent/guardian. The medication must be received in an appropriately labeled container. Please refer to our medication policy in the handbook.

All medication should be kept out of the reach of children. Medications should go from an adult hand to an adult hand. Please do not send any medication in your child’s bookbag, lunchbox or pockets.

Some students may carry emergency medications such as rescue inhalers and insulin with the permission of the physician and parent/guardian.

To protect the safety of students and to ensure safe medication administration there will be no exceptions to the medication policy.

If you have any questions or issues related to medication administration, please contact the school nurse, Amberley Cavenaugh, RN.

Donations Needed

*Mrs. Day would like 150 sets of chopsticks for music class. If you have any to spare, please send them with your student or drop them off in the front office.

*We are collecting gallon milk jugs for a surprise project! If you have any, please rinse them out and send them to Mrs. Williams next week.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
