Craven County school gets new name ahead of 2018 school year
A new year means a new name for one Craven County elementary school.
Roger Bell Elementary School in Havelock became Roger Bell New Tech Academy on Wednesday. The school is part of the new tech network which focuses on four pillars of teaching: culture that empowers, teaching that engages, technology that enables and outcomes that matter. Havelock is now home to the only new tech elementary school in the state.
"We are committed to making learning relevant, and creating a highly collaborative school-wide learning culture with students who become connected to, engaged with and who are challenged by their school, teachers and peers," Roger Bell New Tech Academy Principal Michelle Lee said during Wednesday's ceremony.
