Mission Statement

  • Everything outside the shield is what we are. Everything inside the shield is what we do.
  • The mantling on the top of the crest stands for "strength, character and independence."
  • The book represents knowledge, and the key stands for scholarship.
  • The helmet represents democracy and citizenship which is protected and preserved by the book and key.
  • The two bulldogs represent strength and persistence.
  • The two bulldogs represent strength and persistence. Our motto (in Latin): "Esse Quam Videri", meaning "To be rather than to seem." We, the students, during our high school years, are discovering and defining our adult "selves", and in doing this, we need to be who we are and not pretend to be something we are not.
  • The laurel leaves represent "achievement, honor, victory."
  • The "R" stands for the many achievements of Jay M. Robinson, our namesake, that benefit the students of all N.C. schools.
  • The winged foot represents our athletic programs.
  • The mask, brushes and lyre represent our fine arts programs.
  • The hand and bolt of lightning represent our vocational program.

Description

We are committed to a sustainable community garden using all natural farming methods. Our beds will be collectively tended and harvested. Our goal is to develop a three-season garden. All unharvested produce will be collected at the end of the day and delivered to the Cooperative Christian Ministry, providing this local food pantry with much-needed fresh fruits and vegetables. Multiple individual raised bedding plots will be divided into 12X12 inch stringed areas. Physically-challenged students will have beds raised to the level of a wheel chair to aid in the ease of working their plot. Each bed can be adopted (yearly fees of $60/bed, berry plant/$20, bench/$50). We will accept any reliable tools for the tool shed. We will welcome volunteers from the community. Everyone will sign in at the front office. Each volunteer will complete a signed waiver before tending the garden. *The "Seeds of Wonder" Crew of 8-12 people will maintain the garden. **Each crew will work 3 weeks a year-one week each in spring, summer, and fall-approximately 9 hours a year. ***Individual class gardening is also encouraged.
