    Baccalaureate Class 2017

    In addition to the traditional commencement ceremony with its cap and gown and congratulatory handshakes, valedictorian speech (or speeches) and recognition of outstanding achievements, most high schools also have baccalaureate ceremonies. Formally defined as a religious service to honor the graduating class both the graduates and the attendees therefore often held in a house of worship, the baccalaureate is a non-denominational spiritual service that allows for public school graduates to find spiritual meaning that aligns with their personal beliefs.   Sunday, May 21, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. Class of 2017 gathered together at Calvary Baptist Church to officially begin their week of "farewells" to high school. Baccalaureate is often a moving and emotional experience for students and families, not to mention teachers and administrators. With the weight of worry about grades, college admissions, job searches and more lifted for most participants, relief and pride mix to create a lovely experience for everyone involved. This years baccalaureate included special performances by musicians Bethany Randall, Hallie Coad, Jusin Pollard and Noah Jones and the reading of Dr. Seuss poem, "Oh the Places You'll Go" by  Breighann Dawdy.  Having students participate allows for more introspection while adding a "personal touch" to the ceremony.  Students, parents and guest were also treated to an inspirational and uplifting sermon given by Pastor Rex.  The finale component of the night's ceremony was a Senior slide show.  Good luck this week to our pending graduates and we wish you well in your future endeavors.

    Junior High Awards Night

    If you drove past the Jr/Sr high school Thursday, May 18 around 7:00p.m. you would have witnessed a parking lot full of cars and wonder what is going on at the school.  Thursday evening was our annual Junior high awards night.  A time to honor those students who pushed themselves to be part of something other than just school.  Some students are athletes, others were literary contestants, others were academic awards and a few students were all these wrapped into one. Congratulations to all students and their parents for another successful year at North Greene Junior High and we are looking forward to watching these students continue their adventures in the upcoming years.

    Spring Sports

    The sounds of "It's a home run" or "on your mark, get set, go" means it is that time of year...Spring Sports have sprung at North Greene. North Greene students Grade 7 through 12 are involved in track, baseball, or softball. I look out my office window and I see track students working on their starting times, practicing sprinting, see our long distance runners returning from a "rez" run.  I head out to the "rez" to see students practicing pitching, hear the cracking of bats as they practice in the batting cage, or players yelling "I got it". Fans are wrapped up in blankets during a game and 24 hours later we are sitting in shorts and t-shirts because it is extremely warm.  North Greene spring sports have ebbed and flowed but one thing I can say is that our athletes consistently put their heart and soul into the sports they so love.  We are extremely proud of athletes and their abilities to balance school, work and extra-curriculars.

    TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK

     

     

     

    "Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself." — John Dewey

     

    It's TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK at North Greene Jr/Sr High School.  a time when we can give back to our teachers.  it's a fact that education greatly affects a child's future, and that means that a teacher can hold all the power in the world when it comes to educating his or her students. 

    I grew up with a mother who is a teacher, so I can tell you from a first-hand account that teaching goes way past the classroom. It requires hours of time outside of school prepping lessons, mastering material, and going above and beyond for students when they need additional help. To be a teacher is to devote your life to the betterment of the future, and it is to do it with a selfless heart and open mind.

    It's Teacher Appreciation Week, but the love shouldn't stop on Friday. This noble profession is often underpaid and undervalued despite its tremendous selflessness, and that, my friends, just isn't OK. If you know a teacher, tell them how wonderful they are and how much you appreciate what they do — not just this week, but throughout the entirety of the year.

    Check back daily to what we have in store for our Teachers and be sure to THANK a TEACHER this week.
