It was a successful marching season for the Porter Ridge High Band of Pirates, who performed an exciting show called Date Night in the 50’s. Their season was marked by a crowd-pleasing show, a rewarding opportunity to host Pirate Cove Classic, and the achievement of grand champion at their last two competitions.
Porter Ridge High School students and staff have been impacted by Puerto Rico’s devastation from Hurricane Maria that hit the island on Sept. 20th. Students and staff decided to find a way to help. One teacher who is from Puerto Rico and has family living there, Spanish teacher Maria Koonce, organized a drive for much needed items.
Nicole Crowley has worked as an art teacher in Porter Ridge schools for the past 12 years. And every single year, she always wished for one thing: a kiln for her Porter Ridge High art class that will provide her students with an opportunity to finally create artwork made of clay. So when she found out that her wish will finally come true this year, courtesy of donations from the Union County Community Arts Council (UCCAC), she said she was “ecstatic and beyond excited.”
