Second grade teacher, Ms. Shelley Roland, recently participated in her first ever 5K race! The Big South Road Race was sponsored by several businesses including Try Again Sports, Keffer Pontiac GMC, Dick's Sporting Goods, Zoe's Kitchen, Best Buy and many others. The purpose was to raise funds for middle school athletic programs in Mecklenburg and Union Counties. Ms. Roland was one of some 1200 participants and the money she helped raise was designated for our own Porter Ridge Middle School. Go Pirates!
