Here is The Friday Five for the week of May 6-10:
- It was an exciting Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, May 7th. We cheered on the Early College High School Quiz Bowl team that's getting ready to compete in the national competion against 320 teams from across the country. We celebrated Union Elementary's Distinguished Title 1 School status, one of only two in NC to receive such an honor. Folks who took part in the Community Engagement Project were thanked and a record 10 Service Above Self recipients. A presentation on the "Examination of School Building Capacity Under Proposed Boundary Line Adjustment" was presented for informational purposes to board members. You can access video of the entire board meeting by click here.
- Testing at all grade levels will be taking place over the next couple of weeks. We could use a few hours of your time as a proctor. You pick the school and we'll show you the ropes. It's easy and very helpful. Just contact the school you would like to volunteer in and they'll sign you up.
- Memories of a lifetime were created on Monday. The Special Olympics Brunswick County Spring Games 2019 were held at Town Creek Park where hundreds of students and community members united. If you need a smile, click here to see the photo gallery. Trust us. We're still smiling.
- RoboCon is this Saturday, May 11th. RoboCon is Brunswick County's Premier Student Robotics Showcase. Our FIRST Robotics Competition(FRC) high school team will have their robot there. Our middle school FIRST LEGO League(FFL) teams will showcase their projects, too. We've also invited other schools in the Cape Fear. This weekend's event will be held at The COAST(1109 Old Ocean Hwy in Bolivia). It is free and open to the public.
- And do you need an idea for the kiddos this summer that also benefits one of our band programs?
