On June 2

th
your child will be taking the North
Carolina Final Exams and/or EOCs.

As you are aware, we have been requesting help from our parents and community
members to assist us by serving as classroom or hall proctors for our end of year
exams.

However, due to too few volunteers, a proctor will not available to be in each
classroom for the NC Final Exams, and therefore, a teacher of a different content
area will administer the exam to your child.

Please make every effort to have your child at school on time on exam days so that
we may begin testing promptly in the morning. It is better to encourage your child to
be relaxed, rather than to encourage additional drill or extra study at the last
minute. Plenty of sleep and a good breakfast before testing are helpful since alert
students perform better. Your child will need to bring two No. 2 pencils to school,
and for some exams, a calculator.

If you have any questions, please contact kristina.morgan@cms.k12.nc.us

Thank you for your support!

STUDENT LUNCH ACCOUNTS:

All lunch accounts must be paid in full in order for students to receive report cards
and to participate in end of year activities and graduation. Online payment is available
using www.paypams.com. Automatic notices can be set up in Paypams to notify parents
when account balances are low and need replenishing.

Your prompt attention to this matter is greatly appreciated.
