My Students

Our school is an academically successful, rural high school that is filled to the brim with about 900 wonderful students. We serve our military community as well, pulling in students whose parents work at the USMC and Naval facilities at either Camp Lejeune, Cherry Point, Bogue Air Field, or the two Coast Guard stations.

In the state's ranking system, our high-performing high school has been ranked as a top ten public high school in NC for eleven consecutive years.

We are proud of our success in the classroom.

On September 13, 2018, our community was hit hard by Hurricane Florence. Again, in 2019, we were hit by Hurricane Dorian. Although the hurricanes might have re-shaped us, they won't define us. We are still in recovery mode. We were "CarteretStrong" then and my students remain that way now: strong, resilient, flexible, and hard-working.

My Project

Yes! Rocks GLOW. When earth science students study rocks, they are excited to witness one of the "special" properties some of rocks exhibit - that of glowing under a blacklight. My students love this station in our rock investigation lab but last year, both blacklights fell off the mobile cart and broke. And in true "freshmen fashion", over the years, our samples have been moved so often the labels that identify them are missing. This project will buy new blacklights and fresh minerals. Also included in the project is a gel called Glow Germ.

This invisible chemical will be innocuously placed in our classroom and as students move and interact, the chemical will also be transferred.

At the end of our lesson, using the blacklights, we will see how easily germs are spread. We will also test our handwashing skills! Thank you for considering helping us!
