Faculty & Staff
WELCOME! The faculty and staff of Pike County's 9th Grade Academy would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the home of the Pirates. We look forward to building a relationship with both you and your student. Here at the 9th Grade Academy (NGA) we are committed to providing our students the best education we can in a safe learning environment. Our goal is to ensure that the instruction your student receives fosters a learner who is not only a problem solver, but can communicate well, work collaboratively and creatively as a lifelong learner.
Captain of the Month--Mr. Clayton Moon
At Ninth Grade Academy, we are excited to have a non-traditional employee recognition program, in which students nominate the staff members who make a difference and are exceptional. This month, we would like to recognize Mr. Clayton Moon, who was nominated by student Aiden Potter. Aiden, a student in Mr. Moon's class, writes, “Coach Moon deserves to be Captain of the Month because of his influence on his students in the classroom as well as the weight room. He always teaches us to try our best, all while helping us learn the importance of building up to accomplish a task. Coach Moon always goes above and beyond when it comes to his job; he never does the bare minimum. When we need to learn how to accomplish a task, he will teach us. If we still need help, he will show us. To top it off, he always likes to throw in some comic relief which always makes our day. Thanks, Coach Moon, “Eye of the Bobcat.”
Mr. Moon, thank you for helping to make NGA such a special place!
