Week of Nov. 1st
Message from Principal Drew...
Our band successfully competed at the Crystal Coast Band Classic on Saturday. They were recognized as the best color guard and visual performance group at the event. The band also earned 2nd place honors for musical performance, general effect, and overall performance. The band has had an amazing season under the direction of Mr. Evan Copeland and we look forward to continued growth and excellence for our Marching Pirates.
Our volleyball team saw their incredible season come to an end on Saturday in the third round of the playoffs. Congratulations to Coach Kristie Thach and all of our players for an outstanding season.
Two of our cross country runners, Jayden White and Coley Drew, qualified for the state championships over the weekend. Good luck to both of them as they run next Saturday in Kernersville.
Our football team closed out the regular season on Monday night with a win over South Creek. They will host a first round playoff game versus Northwest Halifax on Friday night. Good luck to our players and coaches in the playoffs.
As we head into another week full of opportunity at Perquimans County High School there are several items that you may want to be aware of.
On Monday we have Picture Day. Students should not wear green for picture day. In order to make sure that every student gets their picture taken we will call them down by homeroom. Students should report to the gym lobby when their homeroom is called. A flyer with more information can be located on our school Facebook page. Our Soccer team will travel to Lakewood High School for a first round playoff game. Good luck to our players and coaches in the playoffs. Basketball tryouts also begin on Monday. The girl's basketball tryouts will be held right after school in the gym starting at 3:30. Boys basketball tryouts will start at 4:45 in the gym. Boys should be dressed and in the hallway behind the gym by 4:30. Masks are required and personal water bottles are recommended. In order to be able to try out for the girls or boys, team potential players should have a current physical on file, have all rank one forms updated, and be eligible academically. Please see Mrs. Amanda Lankford for any questions regarding rank one forms or physical forms.
Wednesday during WIN time all students will complete STAR math testing. It is important for students to do their best on this test as it will help to determine the remediation and/or enrichment needed to personalize their education. On Wednesday night at 7:00 our Pirate Players return to the stage in a production of "A Family Reunion to Die For". Mrs. Grace Jones and her students have been preparing this play for over two months and this will the debut. Tickets are available from a member of the play, through Mrs. Jones, or at the door. Doors will open at 6:15 PM on Wednesday. Come out and see our talented actors and actresses on stage.
Thursday there will be an encore performance of the play "A Family Reunion to Die For". If you are not able to attend on opening night this is your chance to see our students perform the first play at our school in almost two years. Doors will open again at 6:15 PM.
Friday our HOSA club will host a blood drive for the American Red Cross. The community is welcome to donate but are asked to register online if possible.
Parents and students, as we examine our data from the first nine weeks one trend in abundantly clear. Those students who attend school regularly each day are also the students who are experiencing the most success in their classes. We have six weeks left in the semester. Now is the time to correct poor attendance and to get work done on a daily basis so that each of you can be successful in all of your classes. We are here to help but the work must get done for success to be realized.
