Gates Foundation visits Hoke County Schools

posted Sep 29, 2014, 8:37 AM by JODIE BRYANT

Representatives from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation visited Hoke County Schools on Thursday, September 25.  Joined by the Chief Academic Officer for Tulsa Public Schools in Oklahoma, the group toured several classrooms at each academic level to witness the district’s implementation of LDC (literacy design collaborative) and MDC (math design collaborative). The tour began with viewing LDC in an Upchurch Elementary kindergarten classroom.  The group then went into other classrooms at Upchurch Elementary, East Hoke Middle, Hoke High and Sandy Grove Middle.  After the school tours, the visiting group joined teachers and administrators for lunch and an in-depth conversation about how LDC and MDC were implemented at each level throughout the district.  Teachers were praised for their hard work and for using PLCs as an opportunity to help one another achieve success with these initiatives.

Some schools will receive meals at no charge

posted Aug 29, 2014, 1:08 PM by JODIE BRYANT

The vision of the Hoke County Schools Child Nutrition Team is “Children must be healthy to learn and must learn to be healthy.”  Thanks to a new and exciting federally funded program called Community Eligibility Provision (CEP), students at six Hoke County schools will receive breakfast and lunch at no charge for the 2014-2015 school year.  If your child attends one of the following schools:  Scurlock Elementary, Hawk Eye Elementary, JW McLauchlin Elementary, West Hoke Elementary, West Hoke Middle, or Turlington School, he/she is automatically eligible for meals at no charge.  This includes breakfast, lunch and afterschool snacks.  Parents of students at these schools will not need to complete a meal application.  If your child attends any of the other schools in Hoke County, you must complete a free and reduced meal application.  The meal status for students returning from last school year will rollover for the first 30 days of the new school year.  After 30 days, those students who have not submitted a new application will revert to full paying status and parents will be responsible for any charges incurred.  A new student to Hoke County Schools will be full paying until a meal application is received.  As a reminder, when completing an application, if you have children attending a CEP school and a non-CEP school, please list all students attending Hoke County Schools.  Household size is a determining factor in qualifying for free or reduced price meals.  If you have any questions or concerns, contact the Hoke County Schools Child Nutrition Office at 910-875-4106.

Many people have completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but few are as significant as that of Hoke County High School Baseball Coach Mike Ray, who was diagnosed with ALS in November 2012.  The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has gone viral and many people, from celebrities to former presidents, are joining in to raise money and awareness for ALS research.  Coach Ray was nominated for the challenge by Athletic Director Gary Brigman, and in the video he nominates four former players to also complete the challenge.  Are you up to the challenge?

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.
