Lincoln County School News

Here is some great information recently reported by the Charlotte Observer!  Well worth taking a moment to read!

District, school reports available: Reports on school achievement and school growth for Lincoln County Schools are available at

School Report Cards provide information on individual schools and districts, including school profile, performance, indicators, environment and personnel. A new feature, School Performance Grades, are based on school achievement and growth in test scores from year to year.

Under the new guidelines, Lincoln County schools had nine schools receive a School Performance Grade of B, 10 receive a C and two receive a D.

Superintendent Sherry Hoyle said the changes in evaluation methods, standards and achievement tests have presented both challenges to administrators and an opportunity to discuss how schools can improve overall performance.

Kindergarten registration: Lincoln County Schools will hold kindergarten registration Feb. 18-March 18 for children who will turn 5 years old on or before Aug. 31, 2015.

About Michelle Nantz

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional: integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills, and a high-quality professional network ~ all of which are hallmarks of Michelle Nantz. In 2003, Michelle began her career in real estate, after a successful career in restaurant and hotel management with her last position as Regional Director of Operations running 56 hotels throughout two states. She owes her success in real estate and management to her expertise in people skills, managing, negotiating, and follow-up. However, it is Michelle’s dedication to quality service that she ultimately credits her success. Michelle shared, “In my experience as a Lake Norman real estate professional, I’ve found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to their needs.” This “client first” philosophy combined with continual personal improvement and keeping up-to-date with the latest technologies is a cornerstone of both Michelle’s and Lake Norman Realty’s business philosophy. In addition to Michelle’s extensive real estate education and her experience in the local market, she is also an Accredited Staging Professional®, which brings additional value to marketing her clients’ homes. Michelle and her family have made the Lake Norman area their home for over 10 years. In her rare leisure moments, you’ll find Michelle with her three children and husband, or unwinding with gardening or reading. “I live and work in this community and only have the best interests of our community and its members in mind,” says Michelle. Her community activities include participation in Denver Days, Relay for Life and support for Christian Ministries and area schools.
