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

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.

True Self

What is our true self? Is it our body or is it our mind? Is it a combination of mind and body? Or is it something altogether different from mind and body, perhaps some spiritual entity that makes us who and what we truly are? The body is a marvelous creation, designed to perform most of our vital functions automatically, and yet we could lose large Sherry L.

And, likewise with the mind: we are constantly learning and expanding our minds, and yet these additions do not make us feel like a different person; we are the same person with an expanded mind or a ,OCATEDIN4ARHEEL0LAZAs   raised consciousness.

he N.C. Division of Public Health urges parents to plan ahead to see that children are properly immunized for the new school year. STAFF REPORTS

“We want parents to know that by law, their children must be up-to-date on their required immunizations to start school,” said Beth Rowe-West, head of the Immunization Branch of the N.C. Division of Public Health. “Vaccines are a safe and effective way to help individuals protect themselves, their families and loved ones from disease.” An estimated 67 percent of North Carolina’s children qualify for the federally-funded Vaccines for Children program, which provides vaccinations for eligible children through age 18. To qualify, a child must be Medicaid eligible, an American Indian or Alaskan native, uninsured or underinsured. There is no fee for the cost of vaccine for eligible children; however, a provider may charge a fee to administer the vaccine. Parents who want to participate should contact their health-care provider or their local health department. Recent changes to the immunization program mean that free, state-funded vaccines are no longer provided to insured children. Insured families may take advantage of $3 million in one-time funding approved by the N.C. General Assembly to provide a limited amount of free vaccine during the transition away from the state-funded program. The vaccine will be distributed to children entering kindergarten through eighth grade. Local health departments will determine where vaccine that is part of the transition plan will be available in their counties. Once the supply of free vaccine is depleted, patients with insurance will need to use their insurance plan to receive vaccine services. In some cases, this may require a co-pay or deductible. “We know that state funding for the immunization program helped us boost our immunization rates for insured and uninsured children,” Rowe-West said. “However, we are optimistic that with the help of our local health departments, doctors and insurers, we can ensure that every child is ready for school.” Parents should check with their health-care provider or insurance provider to find out which vaccines and vaccine services are covered by their plans. For details on school immunization requirements visit

Our operating hours are from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The cost is $35.00 a week. We accept children from local elementary schools as well as Braxton Craven, ATMS and New Market. We except vouchers for K thru 2nd grade.


We are open for all teacher workdays, delays, early dismissals, Spring break, some holidays and most snow days.

Opportunities for Your Child at Magic Feet:

We provide snacks, homework time, cup stackers and Wii tournments, fun-filled trips on teacher workdays, and much, much, more.

Bush Hill sponsor emphasizes community involvement


heetz is a proud supporter of Archdale’s annual Bush Hill Heritage Festival.

BY MONICA R. JONES Public Relations Manager for Sheetz, Inc. Being part of communities where Sheetz does business is an important part of the company’s history. The Sheetz family opened its first store in 1952 in Altoona, Pa., and from the start has always tried to be generous and share its good fortune with others, donating food and other goods to families in need. “Sheetz is always looking for ways to be involved in what’s important to our customers,� said Stan Sheetz, president and CEO, Sheetz, Inc. “We are extremely devoted to the people of the Archdale-Trinity area and we work hard to show our appreciation for their loyalty as much as we can.� Since July 2009, Sheetz has been donating excess food from its store on Finch Farm Road in Trinity to Community Outreach of Archdale-Trinity. Contributions are made several times weekly through the Feeding America program. Supporting youth-centered activities is also something for which the Sheetz Corporation has a passion. Founder Bob Sheetz credits his success in life and busi-

ness to his childhood involvement in sports. So one of the company’s biggest missions is to encourage children to play sports and be involved in positive activities. As part of the Trinity store’s grand opening, Sheetz last year donated $2,500 to Trinity High School and has since actively partnered with Wheatmore High School, Hopewell Elementary and the YMCA with various monetary and product contributions. Sheetz gives more than $1 million annually to kids’ sports teams and educational programs across its sixstate operating area. At the Bush Hill Heritage Festival, Sheetz will set up its Sheetz Bros. Coffeez smoothie and espresso truck. Festivalgoers on Sept. 11 may enjoy several varieties of Sheetz custom-made fruit smoothies, blended with real, fresh fruit along with frozen or iced mochas and lattes made with real espresso. “Summer festivals are a tradition across America,� adds Sheetz. “The sounds and smells and family fun make lasting memories. Bush Hill is one we hope to be part of for years to come.� All Sheetz stores are open 24 hours daily, 365 days a year.

Grant to promote literacy for English language learners The Randolph County Public Library will expand services for low-literacy English language learners with a $5,000 grant from the American Library Association funded by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. The program will be headquartered in Asheboro, but will be mobile and can take place anywhere in the county there’s a demand. The library was one of 70 in the nation and seven in North Carolina to receive an “American Dream Starts @ Your Library” grant. The funding will support an initiative focusing on Spanish speaking adults who have a low literacy level in their native language, and seek to help them learn English while increasing literacy in both languages. The effort, called “Lenguaje y Lectura @ Your Library,” got underway this summer. The aim is to provide a sustained, hands-on, verbal and visual learning experience for participants. Activities for children will be provided so that families can participate without worrying about child care. Community partners assisting with advice, volunteers and material selection include the Latino Coalition of Randolph County, Asheboro Parents as Teachers, Franklinville-Ramseur Parents as Teachers, Randolph Community College Basic Skills/ESL, Asheboro City Schools ELL Department and the Randolph County Schools ESL Parent Advocate. For more information about the program or to volunteer, contact Veronica Gutierrez at or 819-3843.

ABC RESULTS Under the ABCs of Public Education, per-pupil measures are examined and

Continued from front

school performance is evaluated. Schools are measured as having achieved expected growth, high growth (exceeding expected growth) or no growth. Of the 31 schools in the Randolph County Schools system, nine failed to make expected growth and 22 made expected growth — of those, six achieved high growth. In Archdale-Trinity, eight schools made expected growth and one failed to make growth. Archdale, Hopewell and Trinity elementary schools boasted high growth. “We were very proud of making growth, especially because this makes two years in a row,� said Haynes. “I’m very proud of all my staff.� Johnson said that John Lawrence Elementary, which failed to make growth, still experienced significant measurable progress. Parents and administrators can see this clearly because test composite scores went up, which only underscores why the ABCs are so important. “Growth is the most important measurement we have,� Johnson explained. “It allows teachers and parents to see how much a child has grown.� The ABCs offer another level of designation. Hopewell Elementary boasts the county’s highest elementary composite score at 83.9 percent, earning them School of Distinction status. Sharon Harper, principal of Hopewell Elementary, is proud of the faculty and students. “We always put students first at Hopewell, so it’s very exciting to make AYP and exceed growth,� Harper said. “I credit that to our focus on the standard course of study and excellent teachers, who utilize every instructional minute.� For high schools, growth

also is determined by student performance on designated end-of-course tests, improvement in the dropout rate and participation in college or university preparatory or technical preparatory courses of study. Wheatmore High School, despite failing to make AYP, made its expected growth with a composite score of 85.5 percent — the second highest of any Randolph County school. Randolph Early College High School had the highest composite score at 93.9 percent. LAWRENCE READY FOR CHALLENGE John Lawrence, which made AYP, was the only Archdale-Trinity school not to make its expected growth under the ABCs. In 2008-2009, John Lawrence’s composite score was 80.8, the highest of all the county’s elementary schools. They have improved upon that, Johnson said, they just didn’t hit the target the state expected them to make. “They had a composite test score of 83.7 percent,� she explained. “If a school is that proficient that’s pretty darn good. They’re making growth.� To compare, Hopewell Elementary had a performance composite of 83.9 percent. This is highest composite score of all the county’s elementary schools and the third highest composite of all county schools. Testing changes are part of the reason for that. Johnson pointed out that in 2008-2009, Lawrence Elementary’s third grade students were given a pretest prior to the actual EOG, and that those scores counted toward the composite. This past year, 2009-2010, the pretests didn’t count. Principal Aaron Woody echoes Johnson in saying that test results are not as troubling as they appear.

“We had a 96 percent proficiency composite this year,� said Woody. “We had the highest gross percentage in four years, and we didn’t miss (making growth) by much.� Proficiency is one of the measures that counts towards the total performance composite score. When a school does that well, he added, more is expected of it each year. “And when you’re doing so well, it can be hard to keep growing that way every year,� Woody explained. “But we’re ready, and we’re going to continue to work hard.� CHART KEY AYP “Yes� or “No� indicates if the school met its target goals under the No Child Left Behind law. ABCs “Expected growth� means that a school is progressing as it should, or that students not currently at grade level have made significant progress during the school year. “High growth� means that a school is exceeding expectations. “No growth� means a school has made no significant progress in the past year. Composite scores The score refers to the percentage of students who perform at or above grade level.

TESTING, REMEDIATION & AYP Students who do not pass the end-of-grade tests, the EOG, are required to undergo remediation and retake the test. “The state pays for the retesting, but we pay for the remediation,� Johnson told the NEWS. According to Pat Foust, assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction, Randolph County spent $82,655 for remediation in 2009-2010. “That figure only includes remediation where people come in especially to do that,� Foust explained. “Many members of our faculties and staff are always remediating, especially in the elementary schools.� In those cases, she added, the cost of remediation is covered under regular salaries. Only about a third of the $82,655 is spent on EOG remediation. Despite the cost, Johnson doubts the county will stop funding remediation and does not believe the state will stop paying for retesting. Johnson said part of the reason more schools failed to make AYP in 2009-2010 may be the change in the way retests were compared. In 2008-2009, retests were compared to the previous years’ EOG scores. This created a sort of bubble effect, which may have been the reason all the ArchdaleTrinity schools made AYP for that school year. In 2009-2010, however, the retests were compared to last year’s retests. “This year they compared third grade retests from last year (2008-2009) to third grade retests in 2009-2010,� Johnson said. This likely reflects a more accurate measure of the schools’ performance in remediating students.

Elementary Schools AYP ABCs Composite


Failing to make AYP, however, does not necessarily mean that the schools are doing poorly. Johnson noted that AYP sets school-specific targets for subgroups. Schools that miss AYP two years in a row are required to revise their program of study, but that’s all. The only schools that would face sanctions for failing to make AYP two years in a row are Title I schools, which receive federal funds. In addition to revising curricula, those schools must offer students the option of transferring to a neighboring school that did make AYP. All of the county’s elementary schools are Title I except for Farmer, Hopewell, John Lawrence and Trindale.
