Summertime Update June 7, 2017
Good evening, this is Rick Parker, Principal of East Mecklenburg High School calling with a summertime update! I hope everyone had a great 4th of July and enjoying your break!
We will begin next week mailing out report cards to students who had an incomplete. In the meantime, if you want to find out sooner, everything is now updated in Power School.
Our Costa Rica team of seven students had an excellent trip. Advisors, Jonathan Janus and Kathryn Kinser were pleased how well the team bonded and worked together. For the 2nd year in a row, the team completed more service hours for the organization in Costa Rica than any other school group this year. They also visited a high school this year where our students worked on a project with the Costa Rican students and then presented their work. I am so proud of their accomplishments and glad they are back safe and sound!
The student summer reading list is posted on the East Meck website. Please have your child check out the reading information for Social Studies, English, and Foreign Language. It definitely helps to start the year off prepared. So, have them curve out some time for reading during some down times.
