Billingsville Needs Help!

On Wednesday, November 4, Selwyn is hosting a “Volunteer Day” at Billingsville Leadership Academy. This event will run throughout the school day. We already have many requests from teachers and staff for our services. Please consider giving as little or as much time as you can to help our partners in need! Contact shelley_s_butler@yahoo.com to register.

Billingsville needs pencils, hand sanitizer, tissues, Clorox wipes, ear buds (dollar store), deodorant and treasure box items! They also need volunteers to copy in the office which takes about one hour a week!

Please email Jamie Scurry at j.m.scurry@gmail.com if you can help with these needs.

AdvancED Parent Survey – Your Input Needed!

Parents – Selwyn needs your help in completing a survey being conducted by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools!

The AdvancED survey reflects the commitment at CMS to nurture an ongoing, district-wide conversation about CMS. The questions were developed by AdvancED, an outside organization that works with schools and school systems to help them improve. They are designed to help CMS learn more about what you as a parent may be looking for in a high quality school. Your responses, once received, will inform decisions to help improve student achievement and strengthen our schools.

All individual survey responses are confidential. Only group-level results will be reported once the survey closes on October 2. The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete.

In order to complete the survey, please go to:
