Message from Principal Drew...

There are only 9 instructional days left in the school year. Students you need to be making all necessary arrangements now to finish the year successfully. If you have over ten absences in a class see your guidance counselor immediately to start making up time. We offer the opportunity to make up time every day after school. If you are missing work get it completed and submitted now to give yourself the best opportunity to succeed. Summer school will be offered this year for English 2, Math 1 and Biology as well as credit recovery and seat time completion. The dates for summer school are June 14th through the 24th. The student day for summer school will be from 8:00 AM to 11:30 AM each day. This is a great opportunity for students to regain credits before grades are closed out for the school year.


We have another busy week as we approach the end of the school year.

On Monday our Women's soccer team will play at home in the 3rd round of the playoffs.

On Tuesday we will hold our annual Senior Walk. All Seniors should report to the gym at 8 AM in their caps and gowns. We will visit the other three schools in our district after taking a class photo in the gym. Baseball will host Bear Grass Charter at 7 PM in game 1 of the Eastern Regional Finals.

On Wednesday we will distribute yearbooks to students who have purchased one. It is not to late to get your copy of the yearbook. See Mrs. Harris for more information if you would like to purchase one.

Friday baseball will travel to Bear Grass for game 2 of the regional series. The game will start at 7 PM. Game three will be on Saturday at home at 7 PM if needed.


Congratulations to our Men's and Women's Track teams on their outstanding performance at the State Championships this weekend. Special recognition for our Women's 4x100 Relay team who placed 2nd overall in the meet yesterday. The members of that team are Essence Bond, Jaslyn Holley, Lailana Harris and Crishya Sellers. Great job ladies. We will post full results for all or our track state finalists once they become available on our Facebook page. A huge THANK YOU to Coach Burke, Coach Mallory, Coach Kajca and Coach Spellman for their work with both teams this season.


Congratulations also to our Women's Soccer team on their 2nd round win over Union last week. These girls will compete in the third round of the playoffs at home on Monday at 5 versus East Columbus. Let's fill the stands for these girls tomorrow as they try to advance to round four. Good luck Ladies!


Congratulations to the Baseball team for advancing to the Eastern Region Finals that will take place this week. The first game of the regional series will take place on Tuesday night at 7 PM at home. The Pirates will be playing Bear Grass Charter in a best out of three series. Game two will be at Bear Grass on Friday at 7 PM and game three if needed will be played on Saturday at 7 PM at Perquimans. Good luck fellas!


We would also like to tip our caps to the Softball team on a fantastic season. They advanced to the fourth round of the playoffs before losing to a strong Vance Charter team. Great season ladies.

2022-2023 Transportation Intent Information...

This year we will be collecting Transportation Intent Information via a Google Form which is already on the District Web Page (under the Announcement Section-link to District Page & Link to the Form below).


Parents please complete their Student's Transportation needs for the 2022-2023 School Year as soon as possible via this online form. We know many parents have had to make alternate transportation plans throughout the year due to the bus driver shortage and the consolidation of so many routes. We need parents to complete this form as if our buses are fully staffed.


District Webpage: http://www.pqschools.org/


Direct Link to the Form: https://forms.gle/pHSxYRTEGRkp2BVu7


We are asking parents to have their information submitted by June 10, 2022, although we will keep the Intent Form active into the month of July.


If you have any questions regarding the 2022-2023 Transportation Intent Google Form, please feel free to contact our office! Thank you for your assistance with this endeavor!
