EOG Proctors Wanted!!!

MBP is in need of proctors for end-of-the-year testing. Having additional adults in the building during testing sessions ensures the best testing environment for our students and staff. Proctors should have an up-to-date CCS Volunteer background check. If you are a new volunteer, please register at this link. The training is a short video that can be completed at home. Please contact testing coordinator Melissa Good at mgood@chatham.k12.nc.us to share times you are available.


Here are the days and times we need assistance:



  • Wednesday, May 25th 8:00am - noon
  • Thursday, May 26th 8:00am - noon
  • Friday, May 27th 8:00am - 11:00am
  • Wednesday, June 1st 8:00am - noon


As we get closer to the EOGs, please encourage your student to do the best they can. The information we get back will help us, or your student's next school, know how we can best serve them. Additionally, we use the data we receive to help identify students that could be AIG, receive nurturing services for AIG, next year's math classes, and possibly exiting from different remediation programs. Finally, no matter what students score on their EOGs, what matters most to our school is that every student is growing academically. Pollard has had a great year and we can't wait to see the progress our students have made!

THE SPRING DANCE IS BACK!

A team of excited school dance planners are putting together a fantastic evening at Pollard (Friday, June 3 from 6-9pm) to help the 6-8th grade students close out their first "normal" school year in three years, but we need your help to make it the best ever! Thank you for your consideration and support because when the PTA and School Admin put together their budgets at the start of the year, we did not anticipate being able to hold events like this again. WE ARE SO THANKFUL THAT WE CAN!!!


IF you’re able to contribute towards the cost of holding this dance, please donate here: http://app.memberhub.gives/2022dance


THRIFT SHOP
