State Superintendent Addresses the Common Core

posted Aug 13, 2014, 6:01 AM by JODIE BRYANT

There has been a great deal of talk around North Carolina concerning what is supposed to be taught in the 2014-15 school year since the legislature passed its legislation to review the Common Core State Standards with the possibility of revisions or changes. 

State Superintendent June Atkinson has recorded a video to explain that the current Standard Course of Study – including the Common Core – continues to be in place and how the review will be done.

EHMS students greet former Marine as he walks across the country

posted May 28, 2014, 11:58 AM by JODIE BRYANT


East Hoke Middle School students were excited to greet Justin Kuhel as he walked by their school on his 2,700 mile journey across the country.  Kuhel, 25, is a former Marine who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan.  He hopes to raise $100,000 for two veteran charities, as well as offer citizens an opportunity to show their support for the military.  Kuhel began his journey on May 23 in Camp Lejeune and plans to walk 23 miles a day for the next 4.5 months until his journey ends at Camp Pendleton in California.  Kuhel was on Day 6 of his 'March Across America' when he walked by East Hoke Middle School.  Students and staff cheered Kuhel on, eagerly shaking hands and talking photos as drivers on HWY 401 honked their horns in support.  One student yelled from the crowd," You can do it!  We think you can make it!"

Four students from McLauchlin Elementary will participate in the Region Four Summer Institute, “Sustaining Success...Building on Achievement,” hosted by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction scheduled for this summer.  These students have been selected as the guest speakers, opening the two-day event which ‘provides educators across the state with meaningful professional development that will take them to the next level in READY implementation (Common Core, New Assessments, Educator Effectiveness, Home Base, and more).’  Jamarion McIntosh, Kayleigh Corella, Nailah Quick, and Abdul Hassan (pictured clockwise from the top left corner) are no strangers to oration.  They are dedicated to the craft of public speaking and competed earlier in the year during the district civic oration competition.  Kayleigh Corella placed first in that competition. 

SandHoke Class of 2014 graduates

posted May 27, 2014, 5:13 AM by JODIE BRYANT

Seniors at SandHoke Early College High School took the next step in their lives as they walked across the stage last Friday night.  The class of 52 graduates received their high school diplomas, with 44 of those also receiving an associate’s degree.  Those who did not receive an associate’s degree left the program with transferrable college credits.  The intent is for graduates of the dual-program, offered through a partnership between Hoke County Schools and Sandhills Community College, to complete the program in five years, however, some graduates completed the program in only four years.  Graduate of the Year Zakyree Wallace spoke to the fourth graduating class of SandHoke about life after graduation, encouraging them to “take the reins of our lives and never let go.”
