We are so fortunate to have the phenomenal opportunity to work with, visit, and develop a relationship with the awesome staff at Jones Middle School, Trenton, NC. We are super impressed with the concerted efforts of the administration, staff, and faculty to create enriching outreach experiences for their students. Want to talk about busy? Want to talk about community engagement? Want to talk about creating learning experiences that build both anticipation for and promote student success? Take a look at what both students and teachers will experience this academic year!
