    Our team of Biology teachers: Dr. Terri Dove, Dr. Carlise Bethel, Dr. Angela Tatum, Miguel Dodge, Josephine Wareham, and Althea Boykin are to be commended for guiding students in making across the board improvement on last year’s weakest indicators on FAST 1! The students performed better on every identified indicator! The team is also doing a great job of integrating literacy skills into their instruction over the course of the school year. Their high level of collaboration is making a difference for our students! Great job team! Also, Dr. Portia Barnes did a stellar job coordinating their data inquiry day last week!

    Janay Stallworth did a wonderful job planning and executing our 1st quarter honor roll assembly! We should be proud (but not satisfied) that we had 658 students earn 1st quarter honor roll! That is nearly one of three students. Puma Pride!

    We are poised to begin the winter sports season. Before moving forward it’s important to recognize the hard work of our fall sports coaches. Congratulations on a wonderful season: Jason Gordon (athletic director), Juan Flores (boys ‘soccer head coach), Charles Chi (girls’ soccer head coach), DaLawn Parrish (football head coach), Kevin Wolfolk (football assistant coach), William Jones (JV football head coach), Christopher Bethea (JV football assistant coach), Sunta Harris (cheerleading head coach), Bryan Montgomery (corollary softball head coach),  Ernest Green (corollary softball assistant coach) and Gideon Tinch (cross country coach). Our games would not be possible without the support of our game workers, game managers, security and administrators. Thank you Charlene Cherry, Robin McNair, Bonita Adams, Cynthia Harvey, Curtis Crayton, Reginald Pearson, Eric Horton, Nina Johnson, Gideon Tinch, Michael Whitley, Ernest Green, Ronald Moses, Lawrence Sator, Christopher Bethea, Daryl Carroll, Ronald Fryer, Monique Dandridge, Brian Makell, Dr. Cathleen Rozanski, Deborah Royer, Dr. Randolph Perry, Byonka Gregory, Karess McNeil, and Tyrone Hicks.
