Summer Internships with BC Public Schools:  Current Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors are encouraged to apply for internship opportunities with the BC Public Schools this summer.  With the opening of the new Mt. View Elementary School in Morganton, the maintenance department will be needing additional interns for the summer to help with the opening.  Please contact your child’s counselor for more information.

FREE Tutoring:  As we begin a new semester, GEAR UP would like to remind parents and students that all 9th and 10th grade students have FREE access to online homework help in math, English, science, and many other subject areas. Tutors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! To access homework help, go to Directions for logging in are at the bottom of the page.  

Yearbook Orders:  If you would like to purchase a yearbook, please visit the East Burke High School webpage, click on the link and follow the directions.

Senior T-Shirts:  Senior T-Shirts can be ordered using the link on the East Burke High School webpage.  Print off the order form and send it to the school along with a check to cover the cost.

Senior Ads:  If you would like to purchase a Senior Ad for the yearbook, you may do so by visiting the link on the East Burke High School webpage.

Cafeteria Debt:  If your child owes money in the school cafeteria we encourage you to pay that debt as soon as possible.  Failure to pay debt could result in the loss of extracurricular privileges such as athletics, clubs and parking.

Registration for the 2018/2019 School Year:  In the upcoming weeks, we will be registering students for next school year.  It is very important you and your child discuss options to make the best choices for your child’s future.  If you would like to speak with a counselor to discuss options, please call the school and it will be our pleasure to assist you.
