Congratulations to the newly inducted members of the G.W. Carver Elementary School Junior Beta Club!

Opportunity Culture is coming to our schools in the south & west areas of our county! Teams of teachers from Bulluck Elementary, Carver Elementary, South Edgecombe Middle, West Edgecombe Middle, and SouthWest Edgecombe High met recently to begin planning for next school year. The initiative expands the reach of excellent teachers and their teams to more students, for more pay, within recurring budgets.

Students from the Career & Technical Education Program at SouthWest Edgecombe High School recently visited Facility Maintenance, Welding, and Electronics classes at Edgecombe Community College.

Ninth and tenth grade students at Edgecombe Early College High School participated in a Catapult Launch competition this week - the culmination of a semester-long project. Teams of students worked together to design and build a catapult that would launch a projectile the greatest distance or with the greatest accuracy.

Congratulations to the ECPS Employee of the Month for November - Kelvin Bynum, Phillips Middle School Athletic Director.

Special thanks to Greg Sessoms - State Farm Insurance for presenting Mr. Bynum with a gift card!

Students and staff members at Coker-Wimberly Elementary School have been collected toys for the Toys for Tots program during the month of November. At the school's recent Military Celebration, they presented their donations to members of the United States Marine Corps Reserve. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is, through the gift of a new toy, help bring the joy of Christmas and send a message of hope to America's less fortunate children!

Congratulations to G.W. Carver Elementary's Christie Cobb, Elizabeth Lunsford and April Phillips for renewing their National Board Certification!

Members of the custodial staff of North Edgecombe High School were recognized at the November Edgecombe County Board of Education meeting as the recipients of the Saffelle Clean School Award for the first quarter. A clean school is a happy school!

Students in Mr. Buchanan's science class at Phillips Middle School took a virtual field trip around the Solar System with the assistance of iPads and Merge Cubes!

Scholars in Ms. Chappell's STEM class at Martin Millennium Academy have been studying force, friction, and energy. They used the potential energy of a marble to test roller coasters they built. Each roller coaster included a hill to demonstrate kinetic energy and a loop to demonstrate centripetal force.

The Edgecombe County Sheriff's Department recently donated turkeys to the West Edgecombe Middle School Thanksgiving Food Drive. Food baskets and turkeys will be provided to families in need throughout the community.

Tarboro High School students in Mrs. Morris' English IV and III classes recently participated in "Read for the Record Day 2018." They visited Martin Millennium Academy and Stocks Elementary School to read "Maybe Something Beautiful" with kindergarten, first-grade, and second-grade students. 

Stocks Elementary School recently participated in National Mix It Up at Lunch Day, which encourages students to move out of their comfort zone and connect with someone new over lunch!

Tarboro High School students who have expressed a career interest in engineering were recently treated to "Lunch with an Engineer." Engineers from Keihin, LS Cable, Pfizer and Edwards spoke with students about the innovative technologies they working on and discussed job opportunities available in the twin counties. Special thanks to the THS CTE Department and STEP for sponsoring the event.

Congratulations to our ECPS Teacher of the Year - Edgecombe Early College High School's Lee Harrison. He is one of two finalists for the 2019 North Central Regional Teacher of the Year!

The recent College Foundation of North Carolina College Fair brought over 50 colleges and universities to Edgecombe Community College. Many high school juniors and seniors from Edgecombe Early College, North Edgecombe, Tarboro High and SouthWest Edgecombe had the opportunity to meet admissions representatives and ask questions about specific programs, campus life and the application process.

Dr. Valerie Bridges, ECPS Superintendent, stopped by Edgecombe Early College High School to celebrate with students and staff after the announcement that the school had exceeded growth for the fourth year in a row and once again received a school performance grade of A!

The N.C. Department of Transportation and the N.C. Department of Commerce teamed up to gather donated school supplies this summer and give them to the students at Phillips Middle School in Battleboro and other Edgecombe County schools. The effort was part of Gov. Cooper’s 2nd Annual School Supply Drive.

Our teachers are ready for the 2018-19 school year!

Many of our community partners helped welcome students back to school for the first day of school in the ECPS iZone!

Welcome new teachers!
