Although performance expectations are very high, students involved in the choral classes know that they will be given every opportunity to succeed. They learn early that failure is not an option, and that they will receive support from a variety of sources. Not only is involvement in chorus beneficial musically and academically, but it provides an important place for students to connect socially. For example, on any given day, there might easily be a minimum of twenty-five students "hanging out" in the chorus room before school starts or at lunch time. Students are not only culturally diverse, but also academically diverse in all of the classes. 

Sanderson Vocal Music students have performed both statewide and internationally. Faculty and students actively collaborate on school musicals, festivals, and other school and local community events. Students who have graduated from Jesse O. Sanderson High School in the Fine Arts Department have continued to further their study of music at major institutions including Berkley School of Music, North Carolina School of the Arts, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Howard University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Meredith College, Peace College, Appalachian State University, East Carolina University, and Furman University. Students are encouraged to get involved as freshmen; opportunities are not limited to upperclassmen. Extracurricular activities within the department include: Spring Musical, Men's Choir, Gospel Choir and Spring Trips.

Wake County Winter Make Up days as of 3/8/15
click to expand

Winter Weather Make-Up Days 

The days below were chosen to provide as much academic benefit as possible after losing eight school days to ice and snow relatively late in the year. School leaders recognize that these makeup days will create scheduling conflicts for some and trust that parents will make the best decisions for their families. For additional guidance, see Frequently Asked Questions below.

Employees will receive additional information on how the make up days affect staff calendars shortly. 

Traditional-Calendar: 
  • Friday, March 6 – This early release day is extended to a full day
  • Friday, April 17 – This early release day is extended to a full day
  • Monday, March 23 – Schools will operate on a normal weekday schedule
  • Tuesday, March 24  – Schools will operate on a normal weekday schedule
  • Wednesday, March 25 – Schools will operate on a normal weekday schedule
 

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are we using the first three days of spring break?

State calendar laws combined with the lateness of this year’s school closings left the school system with limited options to recover eight days of instructional time. Five of those make-up days were already decided, leaving three days to recover.

The school system explored the option of using the Good Friday April 3 holiday, one Saturday in April and one Saturday in May. But a closer review of those dates and significant parent feedback revealed numerous conflicts that compromised the quality of that instructional time. 

State law allows school systems to recover time by using teacher work days, extending early release days, using banked instructional hours and using scheduled vacation days. A decision was ultimately made to use all of those options to provide as much focused academic time as possible.

While June 9-11 are listed as teacher workdays, they are used primarily for teachers to close out the school year.

What happens if we miss additional school days?

Per state law, we will be required to make up any additional missed days. The decision will be determined in part by how much time must be recovered and how many days are left in the school year.

My child has prior commitments on a make-up day that he or she can’t miss. 

We understand that there will be scheduling conflicts, and we trust parents will make the best decisions for their families. Parents should notify their child’s teacher to make arrangements for missed class work or homework.

We missed eight days of school. Why aren’t we making up all eight missed days? 

We were able to avoid making up three days of school by using the hours that students already are scheduled to attend above the state's required minimum of 1,025 hours. We did not need to make up Feb. 24 because the buses had already started their runs.

The Academic Booster Club sponsors two volunteer service awards for students who improve their communites through volunteer service:  the Presidential Service Award  (PVSA), issued by the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation; and the Sanderson High School Volunteer Service Award (SHSVSA), issued by Sanderson for those who do have a minimum of 25 service hours but do not have enough service hours to qualify for the PVSA.

To be eligible for a volunteer service award, students must record their volunteer hours in 2 locations:

  1) Set up an account and enter/track their hours on the PVSA website http://www.presidentialserviceawards.gov.  Once the student account is set up, the student MUST go to the "Profile" tab and entere Sanderson's Record of Service key, which is CO-JCV-9826W or the hours will not be reported for credit towards the award.  This is required for all service awards, regardless of level or type.

  2) Hours must be recorded on a "Record of Service Form" with supervisor signatures verifying the number of volunteer hours.  The forms are turned in at the front desk in the main office.  You can access the Record of Service forms on the Academic Booster Club site on the SHS website and on the forms page of the Student Services tab on the SHS website.  In these areas of the SHS website, you can also access an information form which sets forth the hour thresholds for each of the awards and step-by-step instructions.

DEADLINE for setting up the account, logging in hours and turning in the completed Record of Service forms is April 15, 2015.
