    Good evening, this is Rick Parker, Principal of EastMecklenburg High calling with our last Friday Weekly Update of the 2022-23 school year. All students finished their EOC make-up exams today. I am very proud to say we accomplished 95% overall student attendance for our EOC exams. A big shout out goes to our testing coordinator, Julia Mercabi, for all her planning and preparation to make the testing days a huge success. We have had a wonderful school year! Congratulations to the Class of 2023!


    The Class of 2023! Please see attached link for valuable information related to graduation expectations, rules, and regulations. It also includes the CMS Live Graduation link in case you want to watch from home. It is on Slide #3.




    Junior Parents: Please take time to review the Jump Start Junior Assembly for the Class of 2024! I talked about WIN - What’s Important Now - planning, preparing, and expecting to WIN! And how it creates a WOW factor - When Others Win! Please see the link to the power point that was shared with all Juniors. It has important dates for next year! It gives parents a jump start too!!

    Please note that my Friday Weekly Update will now only be sent out every other Friday during the summertime. I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe summer! I have greatly appreciated all your support this school year! It is such an honor to be the principal of East Mecklenburg High School!

    I leave you with one last quote “We are like books. Most people only see our cover, the minority read only the introduction, many people believe the critics. Few will know our content.” Have a great summer!
