  • The hot, lazy days of summer arrived in our area a few weeks ahead of schedule this year, so it’s time to find some quick and easy cool foods to prepare.
    In our area, Indigo Farms Produce, Holden Bros. Farm Market and, of course, our Farmers Market in Shallotte have an abundance of lettuces, squash, berries, corn, cucumbers, peppers, peas, fruits, melons and tomatoes.
    Take home everything that looks good. Don’t worry about how you’re going to use it all—you only need a salad bowl and an appetite.

  •  A 7-year-old girl has shown a sincere interest in music and wants to take piano lessons. 

    A 6-year-old boy, who is legally blind, just broke his eyeglasses while playing ball at recess and needs a new pair immediately. 

    A child wants to join the Scouts; another wants to play soccer and still another would benefit from therapeutic summer camp.

    Unfortunately, many of the youth associated with foster care and child protective services in Brunswick County do not have family resources to meet these kinds of needs. 

  •  For the past three years, Communities in Schools (CIS) has been reaching out to the Spanish speaking community with tools to help parents build parenting, life and family skills.

    “Working with an interpreter, we follow The Incredible Years program, which we use in the English classes,” explains Courtney Milliken, parenting educator. “The participants discuss topics such as praise, limit setting, and when to ignore misbehavior. Role-playing and interactive games make the lessons fun and easy to incorporate into real world parenting situations.”

  •  On Wednesday, June 8, students, faculty and families of the eighth-grade class at Shallotte Middle School celebrated the achievements of a successful year at its annual awards day.

  •  Bolivia Elementary has announced awards to the following recipients:

  •  Bryson Kiser Harllee, son of Elizabeth and Bryant Harllee, represented South Brunswick High School at the North Carolina East site of the Hugh O’Brian Youth (HOBY) Leadership Seminar presented by the Raleigh Jaycees on the campus of NCSU June 11-13, joining 150 other young leaders representing 132 high schools in eastern North Carolina.

  •    Supply Elementary has announced its honor rolls for the last nine weeks of the 2009-2010 school year:

    Terrific Kids

  •  Family and friends gathered at Lincoln and Supply Elementary schools on May 27 to congratulate the last graduating classes of the 21st Century Community Learning Center (21CCLC) run by Communities in Schools (CIS).

    For six years, students have had access to additional tutoring after school as part of the program that provided free academic assistance to Level I and Level II students based upon End-of-Grade tests, not financial need. The program ended when grant funding from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction ran out.
