Donations, Volunteers Needed for New South Pine Academy

(August 5, 2021) Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) is opening the new South Pine Academy this month on Sandy Porter Road. The new elementary school's principal, Dianna Newman, is reaching out to the community for support in the opening of this new school. Because most students come from moderate to high poverty families, it is classified as a Title 1 school.

They have a need for school supplies, and also volunteer help and items for a school clothing closet and food pantry, Ms. Newman is also trying to build school spirit. This can help the students want to be at school.

Special donation request to launch a new school:

  • T-shirt Fund: goal to provide all students with a school T-shirt by Oct. 1
  • Teacher appreciation luncheon prior to August 25th

If you are interested in helping, please contact Brittany Hunsinger, school counselor at brittanyd.hunsinger@cms.k12.nc.us or 980-343-0765.

  • Backpacks with School Supplies
