All 9-12th grade students began exploring College and Career Opportunities during Advisory this week. The tool, Family Connections, was utilized by Freshmen and Sophomores to take Strengths Explorer, which is an assessment to identify their talents and reveal their potential strengths. Juniors and Seniors participated in the SuperMatch College Search. This activity allows them to select from 23 criteria of what they are looking for in a college or university. We ask every parent to ask your child to show you their results in their Family Connections account.
On Saturday, October 14, the Band of Blue traveled to Southview High School in Hope Mills, NC to participate in the first competition in the school’s history. We chose to go to a competition this year to push ourselves to a new level and have something to work towards at the end of the season. Southview’s Rumble in the Jungle was chosen, despite being three hours away, because it is where Mr. Jay Bolder, Assistant Band Director, taught for thirty one years before retiring. Mr. Bolder built the band program from the ground up, molding it into the amazing program it is today, and the Band of Blue wanted to honor that accomplishment by taking part in the competition he created.
