January 9th


We hope you will attend Dig It!, our Theater Production Performance (Grades 4-5) on Thursday night at 7pm in the multi-purpose room.

Valentines Cards - UNC Rex Hospitial and Underwood Elementary created a partnership where  our students created Valentines cards for Rex Hospital patients. Last year we 
delivered over 200 cards to patients that it may be their only note  they receive at this time of the year. 
If interested in participating cards will delivered on the  February7th (so they would need to be turned in
to the office by the February 6th. I have heard from Karen, Star, Sara (left my note at home sorry if I left
someone out). If interested please email Travis.  


The Magnet Application Period is in full swing!  Tours and magnet events will be happening frequently over the next two months.  In preparation for the abundance of prospective parents on campus, you can be helpful by:
  • ensuring hallway displays are authentic and labeled with the standard
  • tidying up and organizing classroom and shared spaces
2nd quarter electives-  End January 12th!  Please complete elective report cards by January 19th. 
3rd quarter electives-  Begin January 30th-  please pick up your elective curriculum by January 23rd to ensure we have all the materials you need. 

Student council Board - it is exciting to announce that Kate Kirkland has been appointed President of our student council with Nicholas Reid - VP and Reece Culbruth as our secretary.

Critical Thinking

MCLASS - In the event that inclement weather forces schools to close, the mCLASS window, for those calendars affected by the closing, will have their windows extended for the number of days in which schools are closed.

An alternate assessor must be used at MOY TRC for third grade if a child is close to Level P and Level P is being used to show proficiency and exemption under the Read to Achieve legislation

Quarter 3 and 4 Planning Days-  Please begin to identify dates with your team for planning days.  We would like teams to focus on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday's.

Homebound Tutoring - We have a third grade student that requires instruction 3 days a week for one hour ($25 an hour) as part of his core instruction. We are looking for a teacher that would be willing to provide this services to him. If interested please see Victoria for more information.


Elective registration will be taking places for Grades 3-5 this week.  Ashley and Alexandria will be in touch with homeroom teachers to provide more information about registration times.  Registration now takes place in homeroom classes.
