Here is the Friday Five for the week of November 18-22:


  • THANKGIVING HOLIDAY BREAK:  Brunswick County Schools will be closed on November 27th, 28th, and 29th for Thanksgiving Break.  We'll see you back at school on December 2nd!


  • PHASE 1 REDISTRICTING PUBLIC MEETING #2:  If you missed Monday's Public Information Meeting that detailed the draft map options available now, please visit  You'll find video of the meeting, plus a survey to get your feedback on the current options.  The survey will run through December 8th so that the consultants have enough time to consider feedback/possible adjustements before presenting draft map options to the School Board on December 17th.


  • TOYS FOR TOTS:  If you are looking for a Toys for Tots Brunswick County location to drop off toys for the Marine Corps Reserve's signature holiday fundraiser for local children, you can find a box at any of our schools.  The deadline is December 13th and organizers will then pick up and distribute the toys to children in Brunswick County.
