NC Middle Schools Work Together After Hurricane Florence
Our school was the subject of an article appearing in the February issue of the NC New Teacher Support Program. Our liaison, Lori Best, at Union Middle School is the author of the article and this newsletter went out to their partnering districts and beginning teachers across North Carolina. Everyone at Union Middle was very excited and appreciative for all of MPMS's help after Hurricane Florence. Click here to read the article.
