The Polk County Board of Education recently revised their 2012-13 school calendar to reflect days missed due to weather. The most important change on the calendar is for February 25, 2013. This is now a school day for all students.
The Polk County Board of Education recognized Polk County School’s Teachers of the Year. Board Chairman Geoffrey Tennant congratulated the teachers and presented them with awards.
Polk County High School’s Teacher of the Year, Kim Mirasola, was selected as the Teacher of the Year for Polk County as well.
Polk County Teachers of the Year:
Each year a small number of schools in each state are selected to participate in the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). The results for the 2011 assessment were released last week and NC students performed very well.
-- North Carolina was the only participating state in the country and one of only eight education systems across the world in which fourth grade math students outscored the test average and U.S. national average on the 2011 TIMSS.
Although Polk County students did not participate, we can still be proud of the accomplishments of the other NC students. We can only imagine how much higher the scores would have been if our students had been included in the sample.
More information about the results can be found at http://www.dpi.state.nc.us/accountability/policies/naep/2
Two Polk County High School students won 2nd place in the NC School Board Association's "What's Super About Public Schools" video contest. Their video was originally selected as one the best of the more than 50 entries submitted by students from across the state.
At yesterday's award ceremony in Greensboro, the students were awarded the 2nd place ranking. Congratulations!
A link to the video will be available soon.
