Calling all Perennial Gardeners!
We would like to add to our Perennial Memorial Garden that is between the Media Center and the Mobile Unit. If you have perennials you are thinning or if you are in the purchasing mood, we would love to have perennial plants for our SUNNY garden! We currently have plenty of Daylillies, Liriope muscari (AKA Monkey Grass), a few regular Iris, and some Siberian Iris. There is also a large rosebush and Hosta. The more variety and color the better! Just drop off plants to Catherine in the front office. Thank you!
We are preparing for our end of the year testing, and we are in need of proctors.
What is a proctor?
A proctor is an additional person in the testing room. A proctor is required in ALL NC test situations.
What does a proctor do?
Proctors serve an important role as an additional monitor who helps the test administrator ensure that testing occurs fairly. Testing begins in the morning and usually lasts 2-3 hours. Our big testing dates this year are Tuesday, 5-30 and Wednesday, 5-31. All students in 3rd-8th grade will be doing reading and math testing on those two days so we need as many volunteers as possible to ensure testing is done in a timely manner. We’ll also be testing 5-26 (Fri.), 6-1 (Thurs.), and 6-2 (Fri.), but we won’t need as many proctors on those days. If you can help then as well, we’d love to have you. However, if you can only do one or two days we’d rather it be 5-30 and/or 5-31.
If you are willing to help us out as a proctor for our testing dates, please contact Wendy Phillips- our testing coordinator. You can reach her by phone at 919-898-2259 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. f you can assist by proctoring, please be sure you fill out the online volunteer form as well.
Thanks in advance to anyone able to help proctor.
CONGRATULATIONS MS. MINTER!
