  •  ALL ABOUT US…CELEBRATING PUMA P.R.I.D.E.

    Congratulations to our staff members of the month Gary Hughes and Earnest Green! This recognition is well deserved!

    Please welcome our newest math teacher, Mr. Arnel Anog. Mr. Anog teaches Algebra as a member of the 9th grade academy in room A214. If you haven’t already done so, please stop by to introduce yourself and welcome him to the Puma family!

    DaLawn Parrish and his coaching staff were repeatedly thanked by nine football players for their support over the years culminating with them signing letters of intent to attend college while also playing football. The signing ceremony was a wonderful event highlighting this significant accomplishment. Great job Jason Gordon with coordinating this occasion.

    We are all proud of Kevin Wolfolk, whose son Myles, completed his graduation requirements early and is a scholarship student athlete currently taking courses at the Univ. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. One of the largest applause occurred  when Myles Facetimed into the signing ceremony, and he shared that he had passed his first four quizzes and currently had an A average in his course. Pumas are able to compete academically and athletically!

    Thank you to the professional school counseling team, Robin Rubain (chair), Tania Chandler, Melody Thompson, Consuella Gibson, Pamela Poles, and Angela Jackson for engaging the full faculty in very informative and interactive workshops at the past two faculty meetings on 504 compliance, School Instructional Team (SIT) procedures, and Home and Hospital teaching.

    Thank you Elizabeth Dennis for taking the time out of your busy schedule to be a consistent attendee at PTSO executive and general body meetings. The input you provide at the meetings is appreciated.

    Thank you Nicole McLaurin, Tania Chandler, Khaisha Charles, Shannan Dudley, and Robin Rubain for conducting evening registration for our spring semester blended learning courses that begin this week.
