    Congratulations! Your child is enrolled in a Trade and Industrial Education course at the Robeson County Career Center. I will strive to make his/her time with me educationally profitable.

    You, as parents, and I, as an instructor, have a mutual obligation to help your child prepare for a successful future. Your interest, your involvement, your support, and your parental guidance have never been more important. Working together, we can make certain that your child will meet his/her educational goals.

    All students are expected to attend my class regularly, complete all assignments, and behave appropriately. Their instruction will be exciting and filled with many new opportunities. I sincerely hope that this will be your child’s most successful school year ever.
