A special announcement for senior parents, there is a Project Graduation Meeting at 6PM in the CA  (that’s the small auditorium) on Thursday the 8th.  Not to be confused with the GRAD Project,

Project Graduation is the event that takes place on night of graduation.   This is a planning meeting for interested senior parents, Dec. 8th- 6pm.

On Dec. 9- Wrestling at Croatan…  and the basketball games with Northside are on hold due to a schedule issue related to football playoffs for Northside.  Check the web for updates.
