Archived Weekly Updates
Good evening, this is Rick Parker, Principal of East Mecklenburg High School calling with our weekly update.
Tuesday, March 4th, the ACT test will be administered to all 11th graders. The ACT is given at no cost to 11th grade students in North Carolina and the scores may be used for college admissions. The test consists of critical reading, math, English, science, and writing sections and measures college and career readiness. While the Juniors are taking the ACT Test, the rest of the student body will be on the Eagle Flex Schedule so they can receive extra tutoring and participate in enrichment activities. All students will report directly to Homeroom to start their day and school will dismiss at 12:30.
Approximately 40 Seniors were contacted this week and informed of the Workkeys test. Many were tested this week and those that did not take the test will be tested on Tuesday, March 4th.
Parents check with your student, progress reports are going home Monday and Tuesday, March 3rd and March 4th. Prom season is here, students have until May 9th to purchase tickets for a non East Mecklenburg student and provide the school the information for approval of the non East Mecklenburg student.
Spring sports are in session now, come support your Eagle Athletes. Please check the school website for game times. We would love to see you at a baseball, softball, soccer, tennis or track and field event. Thank you and have a great weekend.
