Mr. Avery's ConnectEd Message 10-6-19

This week is our 2019 Homecoming Spirit Week! Each day 1st block teachers will turn in their totals to see which grade level has the most school spirit indicated by participation. The winner will be announced during our Pep Rally on Friday, October 11th.


The second annual Band Mattress Sale will be on Saturday, October 12th from 10 am to 5 pm in the gym area.


In accordance with the state of NC attendance policy, the highest grade a student can receive is 59 if they are absent over 4 days in a 9 week period. Students have the opportunity to make up days if they attend tutorials. Attending 2 tutorials will make up one day of absence. Or they can attend a structured lunch with Mr. Anderson. Attending 2 structured lunches also makes up for one day of absence.  

Tuesday, Oct. 15 is the last day students can make up days so teachers can have adequate time to put in grades before the end of the grading period.

The end of the grading period is on Thursday, October 17.


The College Foundation of NC is hosting  Financial Aid Night on Monday, October 14 at 6 pm in the Smithfield Public Library. Financial aid information from Local colleges will be available. All grade levels are welcome.
