At West Rowan Middle School, students learn about Sustainability through the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) also known as the Global Goals. The SDGs were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity. WRMS students focus on 11 of the 17 goals which fall under the areas of: Environment, Economy, Equality, and Wellness.
Students at Knox harvested from the garden they helped to plant earlier in the year. Ashley Honbarrier from Happy Roots has helped to cultivate our students while they cultivate food from a small garden located at the back of Knox.
This year marks the first hybrid Regional Festival for North Carolina’s International Thespian Society, allowing students to participate in-person or virtually. Students attended and participated in workshops, while also having the opportunity to compete. Fifteen thespian students from Carson High School have been selected as Thespy Award qualifiers. The International Thespian Excellence Awards, or Thespys® for short, recognizes the highest level of achievement in school theatre performance and technical theatre.
Students completed projects in which they studied diverse cultures visible in the local and regional communities around them.
