Good evening Trojan Families,
This is the evening's message for the week of October 26 through October 30.
Let me begin by saying that it has been an honor to serve as your principal of Southeast Collegiate Prep. Thank you for accepting me and working with me to see the value of being a Trojan, and the pride to be called a Mighty Trojan. There is still work to be done, however we are growing in the right direction. Continue to support all scholars and staff in making Southeast Collegiate a great place to learn and teach, as they prepare all scholars for the challenges they will face; not if they graduate, but when they graduate.
College Application week continues, scholars can schedule time with our school counselor Ms Higgins who will help in completing college applications and other post secondary information. These sessions can be done virtually or through "Park and Prepare," which are socially distanced face to face sessions in the court yard adjacent to the bus parking lot.
Monday, October 26 is the make up day for Senior portraits from 9:30 to 11:00. Appointments should have been made online through LifeTouch. Scholars or parents can call or email Mr. Osorio or their Senior Advisor for more information.
The STEM in the park event originally scheduled for October 16 in Scotland Neck will be Thursday, October 29 from 10:00 to 12:30, outside in the court yard at the Scotland Neck Town Hall.
On Friday, October 30 another STEM in the park event for the Enfield communities will be hosted on the campus of Inborden and Enfield S.T.E.A.M. Academy. Masks will be required, social distance will be enforced, and hand washing stations will be available. These are K-12 events and we hope that Halifax County Schools scholars and families will come out and support and help showcase the great things going on in Halifax County Schools.
Finally, Halifax County Schools is providing hot meals and shelf stable meals on Mondays and Wednesdays. We need all scholars to come out to the bus to receive these meals. Do not let this blessing pass you by.
Thank you for your time, be well, and God Bless.
Dr. Gregory Monroe
Hello Trojan Families,
The following are the Southeast events for the week of October 19 through October 23, 2020.
Monday, October 19 is the last day of the first nine weeks grading period. By now scholars should have accessed their school email, google classes, and Powerschool. These are essential communication tools to stay connected to their teachers. Parents, you can have real-time updates to your scholar's grades using the parent portal. You can call Ms. Evans, Southeast's data manager to get connected. You can call 252-445-2027 or email her at email@example.com.
Tuesday, October 20 starts the new grading period. As a reminder to all scholar athletes that you must pass 3 out of 4 classes to be eligible to try-out and join any team once we return to sports second semester.
Wednesday, October 21 is a non-school day for scholars. Teachers will be involved in Professional Development. Scholars should use this time to get organized and prepared to finish the semester strong. Remember every day counts and every credit matters in the journey to graduation.
Finally, this week is the beginning of College Application Week. Our goal is to have 100% of our seniors to apply to a post-secondary program. Ms Higgins, our school counselor has hosted several college admission sessions and is available to help with Resident Determination, Financial Aid, and College Applications. Scholars and parents can email Ms Higgins to schedule one-on-one appointments. You can email Ms Higgins at firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment.
Thank you for your time, and attention. Stay safe and God bless!
Dr. Gregory E. Monroe
The following announcements are for the week of September 21 through September 25, and will be posted on the Southeast homepage and Facebook page.
I would like to start with a special shout out to several community partners who have stepped up with phenomenal support for Southeast. Thank you Smith Chapel Missionary Baptist Church of Enfield, Pastor Farmer, and congregation for your donations of 20 plus thumb-drives and sponsorship of several Chromebook hardship scholarships. Also a special thank you to Commissioner Kenneth Ward and Coach Omar Jackson for also sponsoring more than 10 Chromebook hardship scholarships.
As a reminder Parents and Guardians, scholars should check in daily with each of their teachers, even if they cannot attend the live sessions at the exact time. We realize that connectivity issues continue to be a revolving and unpredictable issue. However, check-ins can be done via emails, logging into Google Classes to start or submit an assignment, or a simple telephone call.
Again, if there are barriers to learning, we are making every effort to overcome them, and unlike the shut-down in March, scholars' engagement and efforts are being measured by numeric grades and not just a pass or fail score, which is reflected in the progress reports mailed out on Friday. If your scholars' progress report is not received, you can contact your scholars' teachers. You can find their contact information as well as their office hours and other class information on their teacher pages found on the Southeast homepage at www.halifax.k12.nc.us/
Finally, I have to stress that scholars utilize their teachers' office hours, intervention periods, and other resources, put in place to help during these challenging times. Parents, if your scholar can attend the synchronous or live instructional sessions or the small group and one on one sessions hosted by their teachers they should take full advantage of every opportunity.
We achieve more together and team work makes the dream work.
Thank you for your time, stay safe, and God Bless you all.
Dr. Gregory Monroe
