Bulldog Bulletin
  • Students, we are now on the home stretch. It is very important you are here and focused each and everyday. EOG and NCFE tests begin on June 1st. Being out of class due to behavior or absences will result in valuable instruction and review lost. Remember, your goal is to show GROWTH and you ALL can show growth!!!  Let’s do this!

  • You MUST keep your iPad cover on your iPad as well as your student identification sticker. Not doing so will cause your teacher to keep your iPad. Too many screens are being broken from no covers on the devices. If you are missing a cover or have broken your cover, you need to let Mrs. Wells or Mrs. Spivey know as soon as possible. This will be a check-out item at the end of the school year. You are responsible for all parts of your iPad.

  • Do you have pictures that you would like to see in the yearbook of school related activities? Open link in Chrome and upload using the school code. See if your pictures make the 2014-2015 yearbook? Deadline: March 27th. Link: https://yearbookforever.com/ssDeepLink.aspx?sid=1-23J-22904&dest=CU

School code: chowan2015

  • Don’t forget to buy your yearbook before time runs out! $30!!!! You won’t want to miss it!

  • Students, please make sure that all traffic has stopped before crossing the road to your board or exit your bus if crossing the road. Your safety is important to us and sometimes one moment of distraction can make the difference between life and death. Please exercise caution and always be aware of on coming traffic. We care about you!

Feet of Dreams
Feet of Dreams
Grace Ward's senior project, Feet of Dreams, was to educate, promote, and enforce the benefits of physical activity to middle school age children and their parents.  She organized a “Family Fitness Night” where she did a presentation and then students along with their parents could participate in inter-active learning sessions in the gym.  She also reached out to the community churches and civic groups to not only educate them on her project but to support the project by collecting gently used or new athletic shoes.
