To All Parents and Athletes:

If your child is interested in playing sports for the upcoming school year, you can now begin to complete the arbiter sports forms via online. It is mandatory that all forms are completed online for the 2018-2019 sport season. The arbiter sports forms instructions are located on the Pine Forest Middle School website under athletics (left hand navigation). We encourage all parents to start sooner rather than later. Those who even think they might be interested in trying out for something next year, whether it be fall or spring, need to go through this process.
Sport physicals will be given on Saturday, June 9 at Fayetteville Orthopedics from 8am-12pm. The cost is $10. All student-athletes must have a current physical for the upcoming sports season.
If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Felder Athletic Director @ 910-488-2711.

Helpful Test-Taking Tips
Published by Wendy Bozeman on May 11, 2018
.....................................................................................................................................................................................

Parents and Students will benefit from the following helpful Test-Taking Tips:

  • Get a good night’s sleep. A well-rested mind functions better during tests.
  • Eat a healthy breakfast. Avoid sugary foods and caffeine drinks that reduce your mental stamina and will cause you to “crash.” ƒ
  • Be on time to avoid starting the day in a panic. Also remember, “tardies” delay the start of the test for everyone which in turn delays everything we are trying to accomplish those days.
  • Come to school on the days exams are scheduled (students typically perform better when taking tests in their groups rather than at a make-up time). Our goal is for 100% attendance on testing days.
  • Maintain a pleasant home environment and avoid unnecessary conflicts.
  • Remind your child the test is important and encourage him/her to do his/her best. Students should attempt to answer all of the questions and not to leave any blank.
  • Make sure your child has taken any needed medication (if applicable).
EOG Testing Incentive:
There will be a FREE DRESS DOWN day being offered on Wednesday, June 6th for all students who have perfect attendance during our testing days. Students must be present and on time for all scheduled EOGs, NCFEs, and EOCs to be eligible. Doctors notes will not be accepted so, stay rested and healthy!
