Daily Announcements - for students
Posted on 01/16/2019

Good Morning!   May I have your attention for the morning announcements. 

Please stand and join Zaria Logan and Carrigan Wynn of our Varsity Cheerleaders who will lead in our Pledge of Allegiance.

Plan to celebrate the end of the semester and exams by joining us Friday night to support the Rockets as we host Erwin High School.  JV play will begin at 4:00pm and Varsity at approximately 6:30pm.   We will be having “poster night”, which means prepare a poster for your favorite player or the entire team. These must be turned in to Mr. Stevens by 3:00pm Friday afternoon to be displayed and you will get them back after the game.

Mid Year Graduates – Don’t forget to have all your teachers sign your clearance sheet and have the cafeteria and Media Center sign that you are clear.  These clearance sheets are due to counseling by Friday.  Stop by counseling if you have any questions.

If you are a rising 11th or 12th grader interested in pursuing a healthcare career, consider applying for Mission Possible 2019.   Students must be in good behavioral and academic standing. Visit our school website for more information under "Announcements".  Applications are due by March 11th and interviews will begin in April.

The A.C. Reynolds High School counseling department will be conducting an informational college night on Thursday evening February 7th from 5:30 - 7:30. We will have several break out sessions including workshops about college admission and financial aid, how to prepare students for competitive college programs, how to register with the NCAA, as well as how to study for ACT and SAT college entrance examinations. Representatives from College Foundation of North Carolina will be on hand as well as ambassadors from UNC - Chapel Hill, Duke, Clemson, East Carolina University, and AB-Tech. The information shared will be invaluable and we invite all 7th - 11th grade students and their families in the Reynolds district to attend.

This week scholarship applications are due for the North Carolina Hispanic College Fund, the Iona M. Allen Music Scholarship, Mensa Education & Research, Mars Hill College’s Bonner and the C-Span Student CAM Video Documentary for any grade level student and, the NC Cattleman’s Agriculture Scholarship. Also, Reynolds seniors need to pay close attention to the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina’s due dates. There are 10 scholarships due on January 25th. Reynolds seniors garner many of these awards each year and the Bruckner Scholarship is a designated scholarship for an ACR athlete. Please see the scholarship newsite for more information.

This Saturday students and families may receive free coats, gloves, and blankets from the Western Carolina Rescue Mission for Operation Stay Warm.

If you have CTE Internship on your 2nd semester schedule you will meet on the 1st day of class in the CTE Lab during your internship period.

Students, this is a reminder that this week is EXAM week and each afternoon we will be in review sessions for the next day’s exam. All students should remain in their classes and not be in the hallways.  These are the only days of the year that I ask for an on time arrival and no signouts so that we can preserve the integrity of testing and review throughout our building.  In addition, make sure to have your laptop, fully charged, with you each day for testing and review.

Today is Day 3 of our Fall semester testing.  We will be in 3rd block exam this morning and our 4th block review this afternoon.  These tests are important for each student, our teachers, school and community. You are asked to take your exam seriously and do the best you can.   Teachers, if you need an administrator for any assistance, please call the office.  Our hallways should be clear in the morning and afternoon sessions.

I would like to especially thank all of our guests in our building today who are serving as proctors. We appreciate you very much.  We hope that you see students showing their RPI while you are visiting on our campus. 

Thank you, let’s show our RPI every day, everywhere!
