Week of: Sept. 6th
Message from Principal Drew...
YES I AM A PIRATE!
This phrase has been said many times and in many ways. Singers, athletes, and many others have agreed that they are indeed a Pirate. The term Pirate conjures of many images and ideas. I wanted to share with you my thoughts on what being a Pirate means but not just any Pirate but a PERQUIMANS PIRATE.
A Perquimans Pirate embodies a great number of significant and important qualities. We have pride in our school and our community. We represent so much diverse and incredible history when we call ourselves a Perquimans Pirate. Pirates of our past have gone onto great successes in life that include but are not limited to hall of fame athletic careers, serving as elected political officials, national recording artists, nationally recognized, exceptional teachers, and school superintendents. The history of being a Perquimans Pirate is what propels us toward the promises of our current and future Pirates and the amazing things each of them will accomplish.
Being a Perquimans Pirate means that we care for each other. We celebrate the successes of our fellow Pirates and we lift them up when they fall. Being a Perquimans Pirate means that we take pride in ourselves, our school, and our community. We do the little things that make the world a better place for everyone. Being a Perquimans Pirate means that we face adversity head on and support each other through it all the way to the end. We are better individually and as a whole because we are Perquimans Pirates.
This past week has required the very best of each of you. We have encountered adversity but we have moved through it together. As we look toward week 3 I want to thank each of you for making the change in our school to fully mandated masks for everyone without complaint or issue. Tardies, attendance, and dress code issues have greatly improved. As we continue on our journey together this school year I am proud to be Perquimans Pirate and I am happy that you are one too. Continue to live out Pirate Pride each day and this will be the best year we can possibly make it together.

"A Family Reunion to Die For". The description of the play by the publishers is as follows:
"It’s time for the Knotting Family Reunion, and newlywed Christine Franklin is eager to show off her husband Freddie to the family she hasn’t seen in years. The joyful reunion quickly turns sour though when Aunt Gretchen, Cousin Rachel, and Cousin Stefan are all murdered.
The members of the Knotting Family are dropping like flies, and Christine seems to be next in line to become a victim! To make matters worse, a terrible storm has trapped all of the guests inside. It’s up to Freddie to catch the murderer and save his blushing bride. After all, he is a detective — well, a mall security guard turned wannabe detective, anyway. Who is trying to wipe out the Knotting family? Is it the pair of squirrel-hunting hillbilly sisters with their rifle? The former Vegas showgirl with a knack for knitting? The maid with a single digit IQ? The grouchy cook? The bitter journalist? The troupe of mimes? Gretchen, Rachel, and Stefan return from the dead, and with the audience’s help, teach Freddie what it takes to be a real detective." - Pioneer Drama
