  • Take the My Energy Kit Challenge!


    Take the My Energy Kit Challenge

    Our school is taking the My Energy Kit Challenge and has a goal to save at least 20,000 kilowatt-hours of energy this school year. We’ll reach this goal when at least 100 families at our school sign up for a FREE Energy Kit and use it to make their homes energy-efficient. These FREE kits from Duke Energy contain items like LED bulbs, faucet aerators, and other useful gadgets that can make a big difference toward saving energy at home. If we can meet the challenge, our school will automatically win $250. Take the My Energy Kit Challenge and sign up for your FREE kit at or call 1-855-386-9548.

  • New middle school taking shape in Stanley

    Walls are going up and the new Stanley Middle School is taking shape. It has been seven months since the groundbreaking ceremony when all that could be seen on the school’s former football field were mounds of dirt and construction equipment. Now, curious passersby can see where the school will be located and envision a modern facility that should be ready for use during the 2017-2018 academic year.

  • School offers Spanish lessons for its teachers

    Three days a week, teachers at Sherwood Elementary become students for the afternoon so they can learn basic grammar, spelling, and pronunciation. In Spanish, that is. The school’s ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher Edgar Coronado is offering Spanish lessons to any interested teachers. The classes are giving teachers new ways to communicate with their students, and perhaps more important, with their students’ parents.
