On Friday, November 20th, our school hosted one of its most anticipated events of the year: Angel Tree! While we hosted this event a bit earlier than usual, none of the smiling faces of pre-k and UCEC students alike would show that this was a problem! The event began with a puppet show full of ‘punny’ Christmas jokes and plenty of laughs. Then, after last year’s Teddy Bear Christmas was such a hit, Mrs. Pharr pulled out the teddy suit again and the pre-k students loved hearing about his story visiting other little bears all around the world.
Mrs. Roncone’s AFM class has ridden a sinusoidal wave around the world figuring out how temperature patterns around the globe follow the trigonometric sine graphs. We have written trigonometric sine and cosine functions about the circular patterns of Ferris wheels in London, Singapore, and right here in our own backyard with the Myrtle Beach Sky Wheel. We have also used right triangle trigonometry to figure out heights of famous monuments and buildings like the Eiffel Tower.
This year, Union County Early College would like to congratulate Mrs. Rhonda Joyner as our 2016-2017 Teacher of the Year! Mrs. Joyner has been part of the education system for twelve years and has been a part of UCEC since 2013. Transitioning from a Distance Learning Facilitator to a Career Development Instructor, she has done so much for the students here, ranging from time management to career assistance.
