Photo of our Resource Team holding the ROAR letters during our Opening CeremoniesAs we begin our school year, we wanted to take a moment to remind each of our students the importance of our Tiger ROAR:

R Respect Ourselves and Others
O Own Our Actions
A Always Try Our Best
R Remember to be Safe

This also gave us the opportunity for each class to display their class banner!  It’s going to be a great 2017-2018 school year!

Trying different things can appear challenging such as being a new student at a school or taking a class for the first time. You have to be patient when introducing new things. The same goes for food. It may take more than a few tries for a child to accept an unfamiliar item. Check out these Resources for picky eaters and Handling a “choosy” eater. For more healthful tips, visit wellness.ccs.k12.nc.us.
