f the nine Archdale-Trinity schools, only two — ArchdaleTrinity Middle School and Wheatmore High School — failed to make AYP for the 2009-2010 school year. All but one, John Lawrence Elementary, met expected growth as determined by the state’s ABCs of Public Education — but Lawrence still experienced significant gains.

BY ROBYN HANKINS Adequate Yearly Progress, which is mandated by the federal No Child Left Behind law, ensures that each student group in a school achieves grade-level performance. The state sets eight to 29 targets, depending on the diversity of the student body. North Carolina’s ABCs of Public Education measures school achievement through academic growth; composite scores, which show the percentage of students who perform at or above grade level; and AYP results. “While AYP measures the progress of certain groups within the school, the ABCs measure growth and performance,” explained Dr. Sharon Johnson, director of testing and accountability for Randolph
County Schools. AYP RESULTS Among the 31 schools in the Randolph County school system, 11 failed to make AYP goals, compared to five that failed to make AYP goals for 2008-2009. In the Archdale-Trinity district, only ArchdaleTrinity Middle School and Wheatmore High School schools failed to meet their AYP goals. ATMS didn’t miss AYP by much, said Principal Andrea Haynes. “We made 15 out of 17 goals,” she explained. “We will definitely make that a focus next year.” Wheatmore’s failure to make AYP was expected, said Johnson. New schools often need a year to adjust and make the appropriate transitions. Providence Grove High School, which opened for the 20082009 school year, also failed to make AYP its first year, but did make goal in 20092010. Trinity High School, which failed to make AYP by 0.999 percent in 2008-2009, made goal for 2009-2010. Other Randolph County schools that failed to make AYP are Eastern Randolph, Randleman and Southwestern Randolph high schools; Northeastern Randolph and Southeastern Randolph middle schools; and Coleridge, Liberty, New Market and Southmont elementary schools.

Practice caution on Creekside greenway
ust be aware when walking the greenway at Creekside Park — snakes are sometimes sighted. A woman reported a snake bite Sunday.
BY DEBBIE HIGHTOWER According to Archdale police, the snake bite occurred about 8:18 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 15. The walker and a dog were on the bridge beside the recreation center, said Shirley Dunkley, records clerk at the department. A tributary of Muddy Creek flows through the park. The bridge leads to a subdivision. The woman identified the snake as a copperhead. She told police that she had
been bitten through her shoe, but declined to be transported to a medical facility. Copperheads are moderately-sized snakes, normally reaching 2 to 4 feet in length with thick, heavy bodies. Skin may vary from pinkish to a bright yellow color, but the head is a copper color, which led to the species’ name. They are found in woodland and forest areas, but occasionally near homes. North Carolina is the foremost of all 50 states for snakebite occurrences, said Dick Thomas, executive director and naturalist for Piedmont Environmental Center in High Point. The majority of these bites are from copperheads. The copperhead bite is not usually fatal in adults, but is very painful. Thomas should know. In June 2009 he
spent three days in the hospital after being bitten on the finger. Thomas cautioned that the copperhead is frequently misidentified. “Folks will tell us that they brought in a copperhead. For every true copperhead that is brought in, there are probably 20 nonvenomous snakes brought in here.” The population fluctuates from year to year. Copperheads are not among the most common of the 21 species of snakes that occur in the Piedmont. Two venomous snakes are found in the Piedmont area — the copperhead and the timber rattlesnake, which is even less common than the copperhead. “The best policy is to avoid contact with any type of snake,” said Thomas. Archdale City Manager Jerry Yarborough agrees because Creekside Park is

Copperheads range in color from pinkish to bright yellow. maintained as naturally as possible. “You will have creatures,” he said. Snakes can easily conceal themselves in the vegetation and can even appear as a stick on the black asphalt walking path. “At the end of the day, just be aware,” said Yarborough. “If it happens, report it to park staff and seek assistance immediately.”

Kindergarten students need early preparation
s parents of school-age children scramble to collect school supplies, adjust schedules and dust off those backpacks, a new transition year is beginning for Archdale-Trinity’s 4-year-olds.
The year before children enter kindergarten is the perfect time to prepare them for entering school. Preparation for kindergarten? Really? Really. The thought of kindergarten readiness may conjure up images of ﬂashcards and worksheets, but getting children ready for the big world of kindergarten can be as simple as visiting the school, baking cookies together from scratch, taking nature walks and reading together. The importance of these fun activities is that children become comfortable with the idea of school, develop some basic skills to help them succeed and start school excited about learning. To help parents plan for that transition year, the Randolph County Partnership for Children is offering English and Spanish versions of “Ready, Set, Go: A Journey to Kindergarten Calendar.” The calendars run September through
Partnership for Children
August and include monthly ideas for fun activities, tips for families, resources and book selections to help children build their social and academic skills for kindergarten. The calendars are free and can be requested by calling 629-2128, ext. 12. Or, send an e-mail with your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Randolph County Partnership for Children, a nonproﬁt organization, is the community’s lead organization for young children and their families. The Partnership for Children is a United Way of Randolph County agency. For more information, visit www.randolphkids.org.

Reid attends state conference Randolph County Sheriff Maynard Reid recently attended the 88th annual training conference of the North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association. The conference was held in Brunswick County. “Our annual training conference allows North Carolina’s sheriffs to discuss their experiences and learn from each other, as well as bring ourselves up-to-date on important law enforcement developments,” Reid said. “North Carolina sheriffs have a complex role as constitutional ofﬁcers leading law enforcement within their respective counties. Our duties often require that we be available to personnel and to the public continuously. My staff and I will use this knowledge to further serve and protect Randolph County’s citizens.” Reid added that the challenge of a sheriff is tremendous. Each sheriff must ensure safety of the public and ofﬁcers; operate the jail; supervise personnel; serve civil papers; track sex offenders; issue weapon permits; provide court security and address child abuse. The sheriffs received updates on video poker and internet gambling and unauthorized substance tax. The Sheriffs’ Association will hold its 2011 annual training conference in New Bern. The Association headquarters is located in Raleigh.
