Report Cards went home Friday.  If you would like to schedule a conference, please make sure to contact your student’s counselor or teacher.  Please join us and bring your families to Adventure Landing Thursday November 14 for an evening of fun!  The cost is 15$ per child from 5pm-8pm.  Also PTA will be providing more information about the “No Fuss Fundraiser” to alleviate students and parents selling items but still reaching the fundraising goal.  Once we have those flyers and forms they will be distributed.  Lets have a great week! 

Below is information for this week:

November 11     Holiday

November 13     School Improvement Team Meeting

November 14     Adventure Landing $15 5-8pm PTA Fundraiser

Lets also remember the information from the parent engagement night.  Students always have some sort of homework even if it hasn’t been assigned by teachers.  They can complete instructional hours at home by reading their text and logging it in their reading log and or completing lessons on Dreambox.  If you have questions regarding how to support, please contact your student’s counselor or teachers.


Dear Middle School Families,

For the third consecutive year, we will partner with the Carolina Hurricanes to bring Power Play to all of our middle schools. This exciting partnership will support a community-wide healthful living campaign around daily physical activity outside of school, plus allow students the chance to attend a Hurricanes game.  This year the Power Play time frame will be between Monday, October 14 and Friday, November 22, 2019. Your child will be able to be part of this event by striving to exercise daily for 60 minutes! This year’s challenge features both individual and school-wide components, as well as goals for each.  The individual component will include the following:

  • Through an online tracking system, students will provide their name and the number of minutes exercised each day. Please see the log-in instructions.
  • Students will strive to achieve 60 minutes of daily physical activity throughout the allotted time frame. Those who achieve a minimum of 1200 total minutes of physical activity will receive two complimentary ticket vouchers to a Hurricanes home game.

The school-wide component of the challenge includes the tracking of exercise per school. The school with the highest percentage of enrolled students achieving 1200 minutes of physical activity between October 14 and November 22 will earn a Carolina Hurricanes Field Day Event at their school in Spring of Thank you for your willingness to participate in the Power Play program! We appreciate this opportunity to support the health of our community.

Parents, a few reminders. The school day starts at 8:15 and doors are open to students at 7:45am. Students arriving earlier than 7:45am need to remain in the front of the building and are not supervised by adults. Students arriving after 8:15 are considered tardy and must be checked in by a parent. Carpool is located in the back parking lot not the circle lot in front of the building.  Agendas & schedules will be distributed to students in homebase.


The school day ends at 3:00pm and the staggered dismissal process begins. Walkers and students riding carpool will be dismissed first. Bus riding students will be dismissed once their bus arrives on campus. We are asking for your patience during the first week of school as we work closely with transportation to get kids to and from school safely.  In addition ALL check-outs must occur prior to 2:30 for the entire year.
