Week of May 9th
Message from Principal Drew...
Good Evening Pirates. This is your Principal Mickey Drew with the weekly update.
Time is flying by and the end of the school year is approaching. We have 18 instructional days left before final exams. Parents, now would be a great time to do a progress check with your student. Look at their grades and their attendance in each class and discuss with them their plans to end the year successfully. If a student is over 10 days of absences in a class they should see their school counselor as soon as possible so they can begin to make up seat time. If a student is not passing a class they should speak with their teacher as soon as possible and make a plan for submitting missing work and getting their grade to an acceptable level. Parents your support and your attention to these details will improve your child's chances for a successful conclusion to the school year.
Congratulations to our National Beta Club chapter on being recognized as a School of Distinction this week. This level of recognition is given to schools that induct members from all grade levels at their school each year as well as meeting all other requirements of the Beta charter. Thank you to Mrs. Tyson and Mrs. Craddock for their sponsorship of this club.
Congratulations to our baseball and softball teams on winning their respective conference championships after wins over Gates County on Thursday night. Congratulations also to our boys and girls track teams on finishing second overall in the conference track meet on Monday. Track had many individual winners as well: Crishya Sellers 100 Meter, Jaslyn Holley - Long Jump, Aniyah Harney - Shot put, Jtia Watson - Discus, Jasaiah Felton - 200 Meter and Long Jump, Treyquan Griffin - 400 Meter, Jayden White - 3200 Meter, Travon Hunter - Shot put, and our women's relay teams in the 4x100 and 4x200 as well as our men's relay teams in the 4x100 and 4x400 also won first place. Good luck to all our track athletes in their regional competition this Saturday at Pamlico County High School.
