Hey Cool Cats!

We had a great first week in Plan B. It was wonderful to see students around the school again. Please remember Group AA students come on Monday and Tuesday and Group BB students come on Thursday and Friday. All students are remote on Wednesday.

Students practiced new procedures this past week including proper mask wearing and social distancing. Continue to send your child with a water bottle.

Download the Edulog Parent Portal Bus Tracking App!

New Hanover County Schools is implementing a new smartphone app that will allow parents to see where their child's bus is located in real time. Edulog Parent Portal app can be downloaded from iTunes App Store or Google Play Store.

Edulog Parent Portal provides the following benefits:

  • Accessibility. Parents can see essential student transportation details directly from a smart phone.
  • Security. Parents access their children’s transportation information with a unique, safe and secure login.
  • Accuracy. Parents can be confident in the information they receive, because it’s coming from real-time tracking information sent from the GPS system.
  • Alerts. Parents can set up notifications by creating custom Alert Zones when a bus is approaching the assigned bus stop.
  • Messaging. Parents can receive messages about traffic delays, mechanical issues or bus substitutions.

Spotlight On - 5th Grade!

5th grade is currently continuing to build community within our classrooms. We are so excited to have students back in the room and welcome the opportunity to continue building relationships. We are working through decimal operations in math, focusing on adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. In our fiction unit of study we are adventuring through many subgenres of fiction. We have just about completed our human body unit in science, and are looking forward to learning more about how the world around us works!
