Stokes County Schools announced Anna McGee has been chosen as the new elementary curriculum director replacing Marsha Erskine, who is set to retire in April. McGee began in Stokes County as an elementary teacher in 2002 and in 2014 accepted the position of elementary instructional coach. “We had an impressive pool of candidates with a variety of backgrounds and trainings,” said Superintendent Dr. Brad Rice. “The interview team conducted interviews with very qualified candidates.
The annual Feed Stokes race held on Saturday at King Central Park proved to be a great success, drawing more than 250 racers to compete in the certified 5K and half marathon contest. “Being certified allows us to draw a larger crowd, which helps us raise more money to purchase food for people who need it,” said organizer Angie Bailey. The race is a fundraiser for the county’s three food pantries, and in the past has generated around $13,000.
Stokes County School Board is looking at options to increase possible enrollment and may have found it by offering courses to homeschoolers through the North Carolina Virtual Public School (NCVPS). The courses would be available to homeschool families free of charge, pending an application process and in turn, the school system would add the students to their ADM (average daily membership).
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
