Students in the GEAR UP program at Chowan Middle School attended GEAR UP Day at UNC-Charlotte on December 5th. 47 students and 13 parents to attended. During the trip the students (and parents) had the opportunity to learn about UNC-C's traditions, student activities, and campus life. They also had the opportunity to ask questions of current students and learn about the application process. During the day, students became even more GEARed UP about going to college. Below are some pictures from our trip.
As the Edenton-Chowan Board of Education works to recruit and hire a new superintendent, board members would like direct input from interested members of the community. Please take some time to access and complete the survey through the link below. Please note that the survey must be completed in a single online session, as partial responses cannot be saved for later completion. Also, please note that the survey may only be completed one time per IP address. Hard copies of the community survey will be available at the central office, community centers, libraries, and/or as advertised in the newspaper. The community survey and the staff survey (sent to employees via e-mail) will help shape the search and decision-making processes. The Board encourages all stakeholders to assist it in defining the qualities and characteristics of the next exceptional leader for the Edenton-Chowan School System. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and opinions.
