Welcome to E.B. Frink Middle School
Home of the CAVS!
Frink will be hosting a Halloween Dance on Thursday, October 30 from 5:30 - 7:30 pm.
Tickets are $3 in advance and $5 at the door.
Although we would love to see our students dressed up in their costumes, please be sure that all outfits follow Frink's dress code policy! You can review it here.
Stand Up! Speak Out!
October is designated as National Bullying Prevention Month. During this time, we focus on sharing information with students and their families on methods they can use to conquer bullying as targets or as bystanders. Frink's newsletter for October focused on strategies that can be used. Information for students and families is also provided on the Student Services' website.
Frink encourages its students to "Stand up! Speak Out!" when they witness or experience bullying, but we also understand that it can be difficult and scary to do at times. Because of this, Frink has a "Report a Bully" locked-box outside of the front office which can only be accessed by the counselors and administration and we've set up an online reporting form.
We ask all students, staff, and families of Lenoir County Public Schools to show your support of our battle against bullying by wearing orange on Thursday, October 23.

The staff members of E. B. Frink Middle School, with the cooperation of the parents and interaction with the community, will provide a means by which all students experience the knowledge and skills necessary for them to develop intellectually, physically, morally, socially, and emotionally to become productive citizens.
E.B. Frink Middle School is organized around the needs and interests of its students and community. It recognizes and appreciates a rapidly changing society and strives to guide the students into an appreciation of the duties and privileges of a democracy.
The faculty recognizes each student as an individual with unique interests and abilities; therefore, it encourages the students to develop self-reliance and tolerance through critical thought, free inquiry, and creative expression. Although the school is primarily responsible for the education of its youth, it shares this responsibility with parents and the community at large.
The curriculum should be purposeful and meaningful. It should also be flexible enough to enable teachers to guide students toward both academic achievement and responsible young adulthood.
The faculty believes that if the school is to realize its vast goals and ambitions, it must solicit the support of its community. Active community in the entire school program is essential.
In striving to attain the stated philosophy, Frink Middle School's staff and parents have established the following goals:
|•To insure that the vision and mission statements are visible, publicized, and understood by the student body, staff, and community.|
•To maintain a positive relationship between the principal, students, staff, and community.
|•To improve instruction by identifying instructional needs, developing a plan of action to address these needs, and ensuring the implementation of these plans.|
|•To analyze annual test data through disaggregation and discrepancy analysis in order to identify student's progress and/or needs and to improve student learning.|
|•To meet state computer requirements.|
|•To promote a safe and orderly physical environment.|
|•To spend the predominant amount of instructional time on student-teacher interaction resulting in high levels of student engagement.|
|•To provide varied opportunities for student success.|
|•To develop diverse instructional programs appropriate for the middle school.|
|•To encourage a higher daily attendance rate.|
|•To promote the recognition of faculty and staff for their professional and personal accomplishments.|
|•To insure that the home, school, and community work together to promote student success.|
