Students, parents, and teachers - Thank you for collecting, clipping, and submitting your Box Tops! For every 20 Box Tops submitted, your child is entered into a drawing for a prize at the end of the month. (Make sure your child's name and teacher's name are on your envelope or baggie of Box Tops.) Please continue to collect your Box Tops (and Labels for Education, too!) this month as we will award more great prizes! Thank you for all that you do!
We had a large turn-out on Wednesday for Bike to School Day! A ribbon-cutting ceremony took place to celebrate the addition of the new crosswalk between Hominy Valley Elementary and Enka High School. Our head custodian, Shirley Smith, was the honoree of the Bike to School Day event. Shirley bikes every day for 10 miles and she led the bikers on Wednesday to Hominy Valley!

The Media/Technology Advisory Committee (MTAC) at A.C. Reynolds High School released its written findings regarding a parent’s complaint regarding the use of the book, The Kite Runner, as a supplementary text. The MTAC determined the book “possesses sufficient literary, thematic, and aesthetic merits to warrant its inclusion for study at teacher discretion.”
