Mr. Brinkley explains, “The luncheon is an excellent opportunity for our community to show their support of Craven County Schools, our public school educators, and administrators. PIE Grants are awarded to teachers for creative and innovative projects in Craven County Schools classrooms and to fund materials for technology, science, music, and art projects, along with supplies and books for our students.”
The mission of Craven County Schools is: Together with our families and community, Craven County Schools will educate all learners to personal, professional, and civic success through challenging and personalized instruction.
