Week of November 27th
Message from Principal Drew...
I hope everyone had a restful and relaxing Thanksgiving holiday. As we return to school tomorrow we have 13 days left before final exams. Now is the time to complete any missing work and to start preparing for final exams in all classes. Exemption for final exams will be given to students who fall into one of the two following categories: 90 overall average in a class and 5 or less unexcused absences in a class or 80 overall average and 3 or less unexcused absences in a class. Biology, English 2, Math 1, Math 3, and CTE courses can not be exempted.
It is time for our annual Toys for Tots campaign with the Perquimans County Sheriff's Office. We ask that if you are able to donate that you bring in a new unopened toy and place it in the box in the main office. If we are able to collect the most toys then Sgt Murray will be submerged in an ice bath. The toy drive will run through December 8th.
The Perquimans County School Board has approved a calendar change for the high school only. December 18th and 19th will be early release days for the high school only. All schools will release early on December 20th.

Dear Parents and Students,
As we head into the holiday session, I wanted to share a few additional resources to help keep your students on track:
Check Out This Scholarship Opportunity: Fidelity Scholars Program Applications Open
The Fidelity Scholars Program combines a generous annual needs-based scholarship with robust wrap-around services that support students’ persistence to degree or certificate attainment.
FSP provides a last dollar scholarship opportunity to high school seniors and GED recipients, ages 16-24, who will be enrolling at a 4-year college/university for the first time in Fall 2024.
If a student meets the eligibility criteria listed below, they can apply:
2.5 – 3.5 unweighted GPA or GED
Demonstrate financial need
Enroll at a 4-year, not-for-profit college or university in your home state
Come from underrepresented populations and historically underserved communities
Learn more about the program and apply here.
NC Residency (RDS)
If you have not done so already, it's crucial to complete the NC Residency Determination Service. NC Residency is used to qualify students for in-state tuition and state scholarships/grants. Ensure you've completed this essential step to maximize financial benefits for your students' college journey.
Funding Opportunities - Scholarships
Looking for funding options? Check out our Scholarship Spreadsheet, which compiles national, state, local, and scholarship databases for a wide range of funding opportunities. It's a valuable resource to help your students explore various scholarship options and streamline the search process.
