Mia Corrado receives a letter from Malala Yousafzai
Prior to Spring Break, 7th grade students read a variety of novels set in different countries and highlighting different cultures. One of the novels read by some of the students included the student and adult edition of I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai. Students responded to the chapters of their assigned novels in a variety of ways. One student, Mia Corrado, wrote multiple poems responding to Malala's story. She and her teacher, Mrs. Erman, sent the poetry to the Malala Foundation to share the impact of Malala's biography on students here in North Carolina. Within a month, Mia received a letter back from Malala describing the importance of education.

Pollard's PTSA is looking for a few good parents to volunteer for next year. Although they have an amazing team, most of the parents are moving on to Northwood. Positions available include: PTSA President, Vice President, Secretary, Fundraising Chair, Membership Chair, Spirit Wear Chair, and Box Top Chair. The jobs vary in time commitment and assignment. Please contact Wendy Bengivenni with questions. We all know our schools need extra help and extra funding, and this doesn't happen without parents getting involved. Thank you in advance!
Athletic Gap is a way for your kids to stay at school (supervised) until game time on days when Pollard has home games. (READ: one less trip for you to make shuttling your kid!) The cost for Athletic GAP is $2, and does not include the admission price to the game. Softball and soccer games are free admission. Basketball games cost $3. The Boosters Club sells concessions at games, so your child may want to bring extra money for that as well.
Every year, Pollard Band Director, Michele Reams, encourages her band students to go to the esteemed UNCG Summer Music Camp. This year, a record number of 35 Pollard band students attended the camp.
