We need judges to assist with Oral Boards! 

The Fall semester Oral Boards will be Wednesday, December 16, from 4:30 until 7:30.  The Graduation Project process consists of four components: the research paper, the physical product, the portfolio, and the oral presentation. 

Each judging team will be assigned to evaluate 3 to 4 students.  Although you will review each student's portfolio, visual aid, and research paper, your main function as a judge is to evaluate each student's oral presentation on his/her product.  You will also provide feedback for the students.

Please complete the Google document linked below (just click on the link) if you are willing to serve as a judge this year.

STEM Cycle Success!

This weekend four of our students, along with Mr. Millis and Mr. Moore, were in Northampton County attending an electric vehicle seminar and workshop. The students attending were Jabar Brewer, Dominic Harden, Joseph Jakway, and Elijah Leslie.

After many, many, many long and late hours during the school day and over this weekend our electric vehicle, the STEM Cycle, is finally up and running! Fully functioning! This is an electric vehicle we've built from scratch, from the ground up.

The students did an amazing job and our success this weekend was made possible by the efforts of former and current students. In addition to the students who attended the workshop this weekend, Thomas Craven and Abelardo Rivera have made huge contributions and without their help we wouldn't have got it done.

Gracyn, Nero and Archie walk into a classroom....

Kylee Maarshalk's student intern, Sydney Doyle from Lenoir-Rhyne University,  invited the Cape Fear Raptor Center to come into our English II classes today following a unit on falconry in the Middle East. Doyle's class welcomed Gracyn, a volunteer for the Raptor Center and a Biology Major from UNCW; Nero, a one-year old red-tailed hawk.; and Archie, a one-year old great horned owl. 

The students had the opportunity to ask Gracyn an array of questions about the lives of the birds of prey that she works with and about how they can get involved in working with the falcons as well.
