Happy Friday, everyone! Here is the OUR STORY - Shout Outs! newsletter for the week!
I teach because it is what I am called to do. Watching children learn and grow is exciting to me as a first-grade teacher at Jones ES.
During the Board of Education Meeting on Nov. 19, the Board voted to keep the current school calendar as it is with exams being completed prior to the Winter Break.
Shout Out! to staff and students at Barnes ES, Vick ES and Darden MS for their stellar performance!
WCS has zero tolerance for weapons on our school campuses. This past week, we had three incidents involving guns at two of our schools. “Our school district is comprised of 11,141 students and roughly 1,500 employees. On any given day, that’s thousands of people who are doing what needs to be done and staying focused on education,” said Superintendent Dr. Lane Mills. “Unfortunately, it only takes the poor decisions of a few to disrupt our learning environments, and nothing is as disruptive or disturbing as threats to our safety. That is why we have absolutely zero tolerance when it comes to instances that threaten the safety of our Wilson County Schools Family.
The Gentlemen's Agreement (our mentoring/enrichment program for African American high school males) and the Wilson Area School Based Health Center (our school-based health center located at Forest Hills MS and open to students and staff) were both featured today by Education NC. Shout Out! to everyone involved in these two programs!
Participating in athletics is an important part of the overall school experience for many students in Wilson County Schools. Beginning at the middle-school level and culminating with the final game of their senior year, our students have an opportunity to participate in a wide variety of sports. Our student-athletes create lifelong memories and learn valuable lessons that prepare them for the challenges and successes that will come their way in life.
Shout Out! to the Wilson Rotary Club for its annual project to provide our third-graders with dictionaries. Pictured is Rotarian Kent Montgomery with students in Ms. Cox's class at New Hope ES. The students were excited about their new dictionaries.
