As a result of the recent legislative change enacted this October, our school will potentially receive additional Teacher Assistant(s) as members of our staff. We are making several changes that will accommodate for the additions to our teaching team. Per the legislative change enacted, all of our Teacher Assistants will be dedicated to providing direct service to K-3 students. We are very excited about this possible opportunity to add dedicated professionals to our family of educators.
What better way to connect Antioch 5th graders to other children around the world than to raise money for soccer balls? Fifth grade students will be collecting change and accepting donations for our second annual global project in partnership with the World Vision organization.
Dear Gator Families; On September 2nd, 2015 the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction released School Performance Grades. Based on older data from the 2013-2014, Antioch Elementary School was rated as a B school. However, due to the expertise and collaborative work of the school staff who seek to maximize our students' academic growth, character, and social/emotional skills, as well as the high degree of parental support, our new rating that was released was that of an A+ school.
