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 at the Coast Guard stations. I teach a cross-section of those students in my junior and senior level Marine Science course and freshmen level Earth and Environmental Science course.
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.
Through our state's report card system, we have been given an "A" designation, the only school in our district or county to have such a mark. We have earned this distinction for the FIFTH year in a row.
We are on a roll. We are luckily located by coastal waters and it's a perfect background to teach the Sciences for which I am honored to be the facilitator! There's always something to improve on, excite our class, and re-energize our learning.
We have a stellar, A-plus performance record in the classroom, but our athletic department just took a big hit: Hurricane Florence. Our gym and storage areas were totally destroyed; some equipment salvageable, most had to be discarded. Our pinnies were discarded due to mold and grossness growing in them.
Our teams practice.
Hard. They need pinnies. This little piece of athletic equipment, divides our athletic squads into separate entities so that they can practice and hone their skills for game day. This project will replace team pinnies for soccer, volleyball, and basketball. The student athletes come to practice every day ready to work and do whatever it takes. They are excited for the activities that I have planned, and enjoy donning a pinnie to practice.
