Good evening Page Pirate Students and families. This is Erik Naglee, principal of Page High calling with your weekly updates.  I hope you each had a great weekend with family and friends. We have had a great first week with our new schedule.  We will continue to get through this time of remote learning together as an entire community.

The Page staff started individual phone calls to all students and their parents this past week. You will be hearing from your child’s 2nd period teacher by the end of this week, October 30th if you haven’t already. This is another way we are trying to support you and your student during this time of remote learning. Please be on the lookout for this call. As a reminder, if a student received a 69 or below during the first 9 weeks, our students will receive an Incomplete on their report card and your student should have begun working with their teacher to get all assignments turned in.

On Tuesday, October 27th Herff Jones will be on campus from 5-7 in the front circle. This is a time where you can order all your Senior items. This is the last time they will be on campus.

Additionally, College Application Week is continuing. This is a 2 week window where Seniors can apply free of charge to many schools across North Carolina. Please visit the Counseling Canvas page for more details.

This Wednesday, October 28th, we are asking all students to log in to their Canvas accounts and visit the PHS Counseling Course to take this year’s EOS fall student survey. The EOS fall student survey is designed to examine school culture for equity. The key to understanding student perceptions of our current academic programs is to hear from ALL students. Maximizing student input (9th-12th graders) helps identify access barriers and increases the likelihood of enhancing and expanding our academic programs. Additionally, the purpose of the survey is to understand student aspirations and expectations, identify students who would benefit from more challenging courses, explore awareness around college and career readiness, and gather info about how students would like to be supported in their academics.

Parents, please remember to take advantage of our Page Pantry sponsored by Backpack Beginnings. This Wednesday and every other Wednesday, there will be food available for pick up in the circle in the front of the building from 11 to 12. New participants, please go to the Page HS webpage and complete a form or you may fill one out at the pick up site. Please contact our social worker, Mr. Brown if you have questions.

Due to the unfavorable public health metrics at this time, GCS will not administer the PSAT on Thursday, October 29.  We are rescheduling the test administrations on January 26, pending public health metrics.

The virtual induction ceremony for all Seniors who have been accepted into National Honors Society will be Thursday, November 12th from 4:30-5:30pm. A virtual invitation will be sent to those students via Canvas next week.

Junior invitations for application into NHS will be sent early Second Semester. Please contact Mr. McGehee if you have any questions!

I wanted to thank each of our students, parents and staff for doing their absolute best in partnership with our school during the first nine weeks. We will continue to get through this time of remote learning together as an entire community. If a student received a 69 or below during this time, our students will receive an Incomplete on their report card and will work with their teachers to get all assignments turned in.

Tomorrow is a Teacher Workday and there will not be class or assignments for students. Additionally, College Application week will begin. This is a 2 week window where seniors can apply free of charge to many schools across North Carolina. Please visit the Counseling Canvas page for more details.

Parents and students, please remember that we will be moving to a daily instructional schedule for all classes starting Tuesday, October 20th which is the first day of the second 9 weeks. These will be shorter periods than normal which will allow for screen breaks and exercise time during the day. All lessons will continue to be recorded and posted for viewing if you are unable to attend the live sessions. You will also notice that the flex day will now take place on Wednesday instead of Friday. This change of schedule will allow teachers to ensure that all curriculum is being covered with your student as well as supporting our students where more of the work that has been done previously outside of class will now be done during each period. This is the schedule that we will follow until we return to in person learning and it is posted on the Page website under the School News section.

Wednesday, October 21st is Unity Day.  Wear orange to promote kindness, acceptance and inclusion rather than bullying. 

Are you interested in becoming a member of the Page Pirates JV or Varsity Cheerleading Squad? If so, email Coach Mickey at Pagehscheer@gmail.com for additional information.

Colleges will continue visiting us virtually this week!  We have several colleges visiting each day this week, including Wake Forest, UNC Chapel Hill, Winston Salem State and more!  To join these meetings, visit our Counseling Canvas page for links to the virtual meetings.  Also, beginning October 19th College Application Weeks begins!  We will have several opportunities for students to drop in for help with their college applications as well as FAFSA and RDS.  Watch for more information coming soon on the Counseling Canvas!

Monday, October 12th  - Wake Forest at 2:30pm,  Winston Salem State at 3pm, Ferrum College at 4pm

Tuesday, October 13th  - University of Southern California – regional visit @ 2pm, UNC Charlotte at 3:30pm, UNC Chapel Hill at 4pm, Vanderbilt at 5pm

Wednesday, October 14th - GTCC at 2:30pm, Greensboro College at 4pm, Financial Aid Workshop hosted by UNCG at 6pm

Thursday, October 15th  - UNC Wilmington at 3:30pm, Lenoir-Rhyne at 4pm

Parents and students, I also wanted to continue to share with you that we will be moving to a daily instructional schedule for all classes starting October 20th which is the first day of the second 9 weeks. These will be shorter periods than normal which will allow for screen breaks and exercise time during the day. This will also allow teachers to cover curriculum and should lead to less time being needed outside of the classroom than was previously needed during the 1st nine weeks.  All lessons will continue to be recorded and posted for viewing if you are unable to attend the live sessions. You will also notice that the remote learning day will now take place on Wednesday instead of Friday. This is to align with the districts schedule of deep cleaning buildings on Wednesdays as some of our students at the high school level will now be returning to school on October 20th pending our county meeting the metrics.  This is the schedule that we will follow until we return to in person learning and it can be found on the Page website under the School News section.

Seniors, I also wanted to share that the district has finalized the tentative plans for graduation for the Class of 2021. Graduation will be held on Saturday June 5th at 4:30 in the Greensboro Coliseum.

As always, we appreciate your ongoing support of Page High where we dream big in all that we do!

Each class with have 2 live lessons each week and will also have prerecorded content and assignments on the days where the class doesn’t meet officially. There are multiple times built in to the schedule to complete this work on the days when the live lessons are not taking place. As an example, tomorrow students will participate in periods 4-7 with live instruction. They will also have content that they are responsible for in periods 1-3. Please remember that it is important for students to participate as attendance will be taken in each class. If students are unable to participate during the scheduled time, they can still complete the lessons and assignments and will be able to be marked present for up to 10 days after the assignments and class has taken place. Great news! Our school has partnered with Smile North Carolina, the mobile dentists to offer in-school dental care. Even better, dental care is usually at no cost to you.

These meals will be available daily from 11 am to 12 noon, curbside, at every school and families can visit any school to pick up the meals which include lunch and breakfast for the next day.   We want to encourage parents to please take a few minutes and fill out a meal benefits application at www.lunchapplication.com, in preparation for when the waivers expire at the end of December.
