Congratulations to Mrs. Casey and her orchestra on a job well done at their first concert of the year! We look forward to the band and chorus concerts coming up this week!
As a reminder, students and families who wish to cheer on the Mustangs at basketball or wrestling are reminded of the PCS rule requiring masks on campus. We only have a limited amount of masks available - so those without masks will not be allowed to enter. Same holds true for the band and chorus concerts.
We have two weeks left until winter break and the end of the semester! We have another spirit week planned for students coming the week of December 10th. Attached is the flyer for the dates!
It’s the most busy time of the year - but even still - it’s a GREAT day to be a Mustang!
Good evening Mustang Families! This is Mrs. Johnson with your Hope Happenings for the week of November 29th!
Monday we are hopeful for a quiet start back to the routine!
Tuesday students who have not received a step or referral may participate in No Step No Uniform. They may wear clothes outside of spirit wear and collared shirts, while keeping to the appearance policy in terms of graphics and lengths.
Wednesday our wrestlers will travel to GRW for a home meet vs. NPHS and PS Jones at 4:00. Students are encouraged to attend to cheer on these athletes!
Thursday is our first home basketball game for girls and boys. Tip off set for 4:00 for the girls game. Boys game will immediately follow. Mustang Maniacs should have their ride arrive by 6:15. Gate fee is $3 for students and concessions are available for purchase.
We had generous support for our SGA with Cans for Kona. We plan to continue the spirit of giving with Operation Santa this week. Please send in new unwrapped toys from Dec 1st- Dec 15th to help families in need for the holidays. Students who participate will receive one "no homework pass" to use in any of their classes. Toys can be dropped off in the front office.
There are a few spots left on the Costa Rica trip with Ms. Herrera’s Spanish class. If you are interested in learning more about it, check out the QR code in the email. Or stop by to see Ms. Herrera in the mobile unit.
A HUGE congratulations to our very own Mrs. Karen Eberenz! She’s advanced in the district’s Teacher of the Year selection process as one of the 7 finalists. The winner will be announced in March and be named Pitt County Schools Teacher of the Year. We are so proud of Mrs. Eberenz and so thankful she’s ours!
We hope everyone had a restful and relaxing break. Whether you traveled or stayed close to home, we hope our students got the rest they earned and are ready to tackle the last 3 weeks of this semester! It will be over in a flash!
Even in the hustle and bustle of days sandwiched between holidays - it's a great day to be a Mustang!
Good evening Mustang Families,
This is Mrs. Johnson with your Hope Happenings for the week of November 22nd. It’s a short week ahead, but we’re packing in a lot of fun and learning!
Monday we will celebrate our fall and winter athletes, science olympiad and math teams with a pep rally. Please plan ahead if your student will need to be checked out early, we will not be able to easily check out students between 2:15-3:15. At the pep rally we will also announce the winning homeroom for the Cans for Kona can food drive.
Tuesday Kona Ice will be here during the afternoon encore classes. Students from the winning homeroom will have the opportunity to receive their free Kona Ice. All the students will be able to purchase Kona Ice online or the day of. The flyer is attached to this email for those interested in pre-paying. Vouchers will be distributed to students who prepay.
Our wrestlers had a great show at their first meet this past week! Congratulations to those athletes! We’ll host our first home basketball games on December 2nd.
Students are reminded that after the Thanksgiving break, there are only 3 weeks left in the marking period that concludes this 1st semester! We hope everyone will work hard and finish strong!
As students continue to show covid-symptoms, that mirror cold symptoms, parents are reminded that a Walgreens or CVS rapid test are NOT acceptable tests. Students must be tested at the doctor’s office or through a testing site using a PCR test. Please check before the test is completed to ensure the appropriate test is used.
With supply-chain shortages continuing, our lunch choices continue to be affected. Please know our staff does their best to accommodate the students and meet the menu provided. Lunch choices are updated daily in the morning announcements. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Ms. Herrera’s Spanish class will be traveling to Costa Rica this summer. If you are an 8th grader interested in learning more -- even if you are not currently enrolled in Spanish, you may use the QR code in the email for more information. ALL 8th GRADERS are welcome to travel!
Lastly, I hope you’ve received information about the request for feedback from our district office regarding next year’s calendar. Please take a moment to check out the link in the email following this call and cast your vote. https://www.pitt.k12.
