Happy Sunday Pirate Families!

Last week was a short but sweet week in the boro'! Thank you for your continued support for our students and teachers. Congratulations to our Lady Pirates basketball team who brought home a victory over Southwest Middle on Tuesday and our Academic Derby team who won their second match on Wednesday against Jacksonville Commons Middle School.


Please note our revised school calendar and remember that Monday and Tuesday are now full student days as well as the previously scheduled early release days (February 15 and March 15). This week marks the end of the 2nd nine week grading period and the first semester. Parents should carefully review the revised athletic eligibility requirements. When determining athletic eligibility for the second semester of 2017-18 school year and all subsequent semesters, any absences from the previous semester verified to be excused/lawful by the student’s school will not be considered. Students will forfeit athletic eligibility when unlawful/unexcused absences, out-of-school suspensions or any combination of unlawful/unexcused absences and out-of-school suspensions during the previous semester exceed ten (10) days.

No process will exist to request a waiver of unlawful/unexcused absences or out-of-school suspensions. Proper documentation for absences for 1st semester need to be submitted before January 24th.


This week in the boro' will also include home basketball games on Monday against New Bridge Middle School, away games on Thursday at Northwoods Park Middle School, and a school dance on Friday. Our Pirate Parents will host the 2nd Teacher Appreciation Luncheon on Wednesday, February 7 and they need your help. Please contact Nicole Freras at 910-320-3648 if you are willing to help. We also need you to continue to send in box tops on a weekly basis.
