Mr. Henry Arledge along with the Harrison County School Board recognizes North Gulfport 8th Grade for their Performance Rating.
Congratulations to these students who have been selected to participate in the Jr. ACT Program at NG8!
A special selective group of NG8 students have been chosen to receive a "Jumpstart to ACT Achievement and Scholarship Opportunities" through free access to the Plato ACT course program provided by the district. These students have acquired top scores on the NWEA MAP tests given in the Fall and Winter. Their predictive ACT scores are above 21. NG8 is so proud of their achievements! Thank you, parents, for your support! Please contact Mrs. Bankston, Lead Teacher/Instructional Literacy Coach, if you should have questions.
NAACP Drum Majors for Justice Luncheon was held on Thursday, February 27th, at Isaiah Fredrick Community Center in Gulfport, MS. Each year the branch honors individuals or organizations in certain fields or community service involvements who have demonstrated what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. called “the drum majors instinct” – unselfish dedication while living their lives to serve others. The lives of our diverse recipients will hopefully inspire and motivate the students. Several NG8 students and faculty participated in the event.
