Student Announcements: February 9, 2018

Special Olympic volunteers are needed for a basketball scrimmage against Special Olympics athletes this Sunday night (the 11th) from 5 to 6:30 at the Community Center on Estes.  You DON'T need to be a good basketball player to come out.  The Special Olympic teams are looking forward to competing (& possibly winning!) against you! We'd love to get 10-12 volunteers (2 teams) for two 30 minute games.  Service Learning hours are available.  Email Dorie Speer or Mrs. Barry if you can make it!  


The CTE, Arts, and World Language departments at Carrboro High School are teaming up for an afternoon of fun and learning. On Thursday, February 15th, we will be holding an Electives Fair in the CHS Library commencing at "A Lunch" (12:10 PM) through 6th period. Remember, this is a Delayed Opening day so it will be held during lunch as well as 4th and 6th periods. There will be videos, games, presentations, and an overall great atmosphere that everyone will enjoy. It is also that time of year where students are wondering what classes they should take next year. Attending the Electives Fair will allow students to get exposure to classes they may not otherwise be familiar with. Granting them this exposure will give them a better and more impactful experience at Carrboro. We would love for you and your students to find time in the afternoon to come and check out the Electives Fair as it will be an informative  experience that will be valuable to all students who attend. Please contact Betty Wooten, ext. 25044, with any questions.
