A Message From Our Principal
Dear South Lenoir Family,
Every school year brings new challenges and fresh beginnings. This year has been no different. South Lenoir continues to offer new and exciting opportunities to our students. These opportunities will lead to increased rigor and higher academic achievement for our students. For educators and parents, alike, nothing is more satisfying than reaching a child, academically and socially, and watching the student grow and blossom in front of our eyes.
South Lenoir is a wonderful school, full of tradition and pride. We are very fortunate to have the support of community stakeholders. We are also blessed to have wonderful kids who work hard and produce great results in the classroom as well. Additionally, I am also thankful for our staff who strive to do what is best for our students as well as make the necessary sacrifices to see that each student has the best opportunity to succeed.
Thank you for all you do for South Lenoir. I hope that each of you have a successful school year and please know our doors are always open to your concerns. Go Blue Devils!
Steve Saint-Amand / Principal
Three schools raised their school performance grade and 11 schools met or exceeded academic growth expectations, based on results of state accountability test results for 2018-2019. Lenoir County Early College High School repeated as the district’s best academic performer, with a 91.9 proficiency rating and an “A” letter grade. Two schools – South Lenoir High and Moss Hill Elementary – logged B’s and eight made C’s, including North Lenoir High, which – like Southeast and Moss Hill – clicked up a grade from 2018.
The generosity of a WoodmenLife sales representative will help Pink Hill Elementary School rebuild a hurricane-damaged footbridge needed to connect the school’s main campus to its playground.
This year’s winners of scholarships to attend the NC Science Olympiad Coaches Clinic are Selina Gray of Pink Hill Elementary School, Katena Cherry of Southeast Elementary School, Alicia Davis of La Grange Elementary School, Dr. Rita Joyner of Lenoir County Early College High School, Adam Pike of Woodington Middle School and Samantha Rouse of Northwest Elementary School.
If family members needed a reason to visit their students at La Grange Elementary, the school gave them one Friday when it hosted its first-ever Grandparents Day.
