TikTok Challenge

By Student Life

Greetings Alpha Academy parents, students, and staff:

This message is concerning a very important issue that requires your attention. As you may be aware, there have been several TikTok challenges that have impacted schools across the nation, including several in our local area. There are several viral challenges encouraging students to commit inappropriate and destructive behavior each month, beginning September through the end of the school year. One of the challenges is for students to vandalize the school’s bathrooms and this month’s challenge is to smack a staff member, and the list goes on with a series of additional challenges. The challenge is to commit these acts and post the completed challenge to social media or TikTok. Such behaviors are not acceptable and will not be tolerated at Alpha Academy. Your child could face suspension and possible expulsion.

We are requesting you, as parents, assist us in stopping this potentially dangerous trend. While some students consider this a prank, these actions are very serious, some criminal in nature, and can lead to serious, life-long consequences for your child, and possibly you, as a parent.  Should your child participate in any of these destructive and dangerous challenges that can affect the safety and security of our school, staff, or of other students, the Alpha Academy School Code of Conduct and severe consequences will be enforced. Because of the seriousness of these challenges, those participating can also be referred to law enforcement for further action.

Alpha Academy values the safety and security of our students and staff. It is imperative that you have a discussion with your children concerning disruptive and inappropriate behavior. Thank you for your support in addressing these issues with your child by helping them to understand the serious nature of these potentially dangerous, disruptive, and potentially criminal acts. It is our goal to continue to create an environment conducive to learning and to motivate our students to strive for their greatest potential. By working together, we can and will keep our school community safe.

Also, for the continued safety of our parents, students, and staff during this COVID outbreak, we ask that everyone wear a mask on the school campus at all times, to include when entering the building, when walking your child on campus, and when walking to pick up your child afterschool. We want to ensure everyone’s safety during this pandemic. Thank you for your continued support.

National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

By Student Life

NATIONAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DAY

On August 4th, National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day gives us an opportunity to dunk American’s #1 favorite cookie. Whether yours are homemade or storebought, pour a glass of milk and enjoy.

Without chocolate chips, the cookie would still be number one. Or would it?

For that reason, we also recognize Ruth Graves Wakefield on National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. Thanks to her inventiveness and curiosity, chocolate chips and a cookie dough go together. And for this reason, we hover around ovens savoring the moment the timer dings.

How the Chocolate Chip Cookie Began

Imagine if Ruth Graves Wakefield hadn’t run out of baker’s chocolate for her cookie recipe that day in 1937. Because that’s what happened. The cookie recipe she was preparing called for baker’s chocolate and would have blended smoothly into the dough. However, she was out. And what if Mrs. Wakefield hadn’t considered using semi-sweet chocolate instead? She figured it would just melt into the dough and work much like the baker’s chocolate.

Fayetteville students train to become drone pilots at Alpha Academy

By Student Life

Alpha Academy, a K-12th grade charter school, is providing free drone training to high school students.

“This academy is preparing the next workforce generation,” Jeffries Epps, CEO of STEMERALD City LLC, said.

Students can now earn a drone operator license through the academy’s Drone Remote Pilot Institute. Alpha Academy has partnered with STEMERALD City and Nine Ten Drones LLC to provide the training for staff and students.

“That is a certification that is given to them by the Federal Aviation Administration, which basically permits them to commercially fly drones and charge for their services,” Epps said.

 

 

 

The minimum starting pay for drone pilots is $75 an hour, he said. Many corporate-level companies, such as Amazon, are now using drone delivery. Students are required to program a drone using JavaScript, a scripting language designed to run inside webpages, and build a drone from a kit before they can be certified.

“The final phase now is certification,” Epps said. “We’ve taught them to think like drone pilots, we’ve taught them to build drones, now we are going to teach them the rules and regulations to be certified professional pilots.”
