Congratulations to Principal's List and Honor Roll Recipients

Honor Roll and Principal’s List students who attended Trexler last year or perhaps had a sibling who attended Trexler in the past will recall having a pizza snack as a small way of celebrating their accomplishment. Unfortunately, changes in the Federal Lunch Program, do not allow schools to provide snacks to students. Therefore, we plan to reward our scholars with a fieldtrip in the coming weeks just to show our appreciation for all your hard work! Be on the lookout soon for a permission slip for the trip and congratulations to all Honor Roll and Principal’s List students.

2018 North Carolina National Geographic State Bee - Zakery Smith

We have just received word that 8th grader, Zakery Smith, is one of the semifinalists eligible to compete in the 2018 North Carolina National Geographic State Bee. This is the second level of the National Geographic Bee competition, which is now in its 30th year. School Bees were held in schools with fourth- through eighth-grade students throughout the state to determine each school champion. School champions then took a qualifying test, which they submitted to the National Geographic Society. The National Geographic Society has invited up to 100 of the top-scoring students in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Department of Defense Dependents Schools and U.S. territories to compete in the State Bees. We congratulate Zakery on his accomplishment and wish him well in the state competition scheduled for April.

    A Message from Mr. Sunding, Trexler Boys Soccer Head Coach

    AVID Corner

    Throughout the year, the AVID students have had the privilege of welcoming many people from different occupations come to speak to them. On February 26th they welcomed Angie Hudson. She has the exciting job of being a pharmacist at Realo in Jacksonville. She was able to explain to the students everything it takes to work in this field. The students thoroughly enjoyed learning about what happens behind the counter at a pharmacy. Mrs. Hudson was able to walk them through what the students need to do and classes they need to take after middle school if they are interested in working in this field. It was such a pleasure to hear Mrs. Hudson speak about the life of a pharmacist.
