Across America Day
Read Across American Day was celebrated throughout the
building on March 2, 2017. Look at the students in Mrs. Bailey
and Mrs. Mason’s class as they participated in this celebration
of reading and literacy!!
Our Rocky Mount Chorus, under the direction
of Mr. Geocaris, received all “SUPERIOR” ratings from the three
judges at the Large Group Performance Evaluation (LGPE). The
chorus was commended for their tone quality, balance & blend,
2-part harmony singing, and their stage presence. Before going
on stage, Mr. Geocaris reminded the chorus that the most
important thing about what they do is not judges’ score sheets,
but rather the journey they take along the way: the hard
work, the lessons learned, the ways in which they grow, and most
importantly that they enjoy the time they have to make music
together. Having the judges at LGPE recognize our
students with a “superior” rating is a true testament to the
character, work ethic, and musicality they possess.
Congratulations MR. GEOCARIS and our AMAZING Rocky Mount Chorus!
and Mrs. Speer promised to be slimed for the classes with
bell-to-bell perfect attendance on Friday, Feb 17th. Ms. White,
Mrs. Campbell and Mrs Beddard's classes were the winners!
