New AIG teachers would love some volunteers!!

This is Ms. Jacob and Ms. Motta your Margaret Pollard AIG specialists! As you may know, we just started working together (Ms. Motta officially, yesterday), and we cannot wait to get into the classroom and meet all of your children.

One piece we would LOVE to have you involved in is volunteering to help us implement some of our programs (e.g. Math Stars, Stock Market Game, Literature Circles, etc.).

Contacting Margaret B. Pollard (New Phone Numbers!)

If you have been calling the respective schools to touch base about an MP student, you now can call either campus directly. If we do not answer, please leave a message. If it is an emergency, then you would want to contact to the home campus to get in touch with us. Please be patient if nobody answers, there is one person at each campus and they will check messages if they are out when the call comes in and get them to the intended person as soon as possible.

To reach MP at the NCS campus, call 919.969.0070. To reach MP at the PHS campus, call 919.918.4770.

Prefer to use a Math online textbook and you are an MP student/parent??

Online Math Textbook information (FOR MP STUDENTS ONLY!!) Below are links and passwords for students and parent to access their Math textbooks (I believe you can save these onto your hard drive in pdf format!).
