Next Generation Academy Open House

Thank you to all who made it to our school Open House as we opened our doors for the 1st time. We were beyond excited to finally showcase the hard work of so many volunteers who worked tirelessly to get classrooms ready for parents and prospective students. We have 2 additional Open House events in October, the next one is October 12th and again on October 19th. Please come see what all the fuss is about as we prepare to open Greensboro’s newest public charter school. The only charter school in the triad that provides free tuition, free transportation and free meals.

Parents and prospective students were able to tour the facilities, meet some of the teachers and enjoy some games and pizza. One lucky registrant won a Samsung Kids tablet.

As kids continued to play games in the gym, parents were able to ask questions and learn more about how Next Generation Academy desires to radically change education in Eastern Greensboro.

Our amazing team of volunteers have worked so hard to prepare the school for parents and students. We were thrilled to showcase the facility to the community.

Dr. Sam Misher, School Board

Come see us on Thursday October 12th.

The multi-group recital included jolly renditions from the Lower School and Middle School choirs, the Gong Gang, Marimbas, Ukestra, and the Jazz Couriers. Our wonderful Lower School students were recently visited by three charity representatives after they raised over £1,500 for charitable causes. As part of their annual DUCK week (Developing, Understanding, Caring and Kindness), each year group decided on a different fundraising method, organising activities from discos and games, to face painting and volunteering.

SPARKS, a children’s medical research charity; and the Donald Sutherland Wildlife Foundation as their chosen charities. Following the students’ fundraising, representatives from each charity attended a specially planned assembly to talk about their charities and how the funds raised would help support their causes.
