Good evening, this is Rick Parker, Principal of East Mecklenburg High School calling with our weekly update.    On Wednesday, our seniors presented their graduation projects.  A big thank you goes out to all our volunteers for coming out and sitting on the boards, and also thank you to English Teacher, Joel Edde for all your time spent in organizing this opportunity for our students.  Wednesday night was the Winter Choir Concert and Thursday night was the Band Concert, what two great nights of entertainment, thank you to Kathryn Heinen ,  Scott Clowes and the choral and band students.  Tenth grade students were given their PSAT scores today during homeroom.

Congratulations goes out to the following students who have been chosen by CMS as nominees for the 2015 Governor’s School; Bryana Polk for Mathematics; Madeline Garcia for Natural Science and Angel Choe for Instrumental Music.   These students will go through a final selection process by a statewide selection committee.   We are extremely proud of these students and their accomplishments.
