City schools prepare for opening
By SUE WATSON
Holly Springs School District personnel were very active last week at all campuses, helping orient new teachers to the system, getting classrooms decorated, sprucing up the floors and working out students in the football and band programs. School starts Thursday.
Second year high school principal Cedric Richardson is off to a fresh start this year.
“I am looking forward to the coming school year,” he said. “We have hired a very qualified staff.”
Some new offerings at the high school this year include more advanced placement (AP) courses, including AP English IV, AP English literature, and AP U.S. History. AP courses are college preparatory units for students getting a head start on college level work.
The high school has added six more extracurricular activities this year – softball, baseball, golf, tennis, cross country and power lifting. These add to the pre-existing activities - football, basketball, and track.
Students were on campus last week practicing football, softball, ROTC and band.
Some other items taken care of this summer at the high school included painting the interior of the school and refinishing floors at the technology building.
A group of seniors finished assembling their computers last week as part of the summer Workforce Investment Act Program at the school.
