Changes to School Calendar:
At their recent meeting, the Catawba County School
Board voted to change five student days to early
release days. These days will be used to continue
staff development for teachers on the Common Core
and Essential Standards curriculum. All schools
will be dismissing two hours earlier on the
following five days:
Friday, October 4
Friday, November 8
Friday, December 6
Friday, February 21
Friday, March 21
On these dates at Snow Creek, we will dismiss
bus riders at 12:25 and car riders at 12:30. The
Community Schools program will start at 12:25 on
these five days for parents who would like to have
their students attend. Students will still have
breakfast and a hot lunch on these days.
I have this theory that if one person can go out of their way to show compassion, then it will start a chain reaction of the same. People will never know how far a little kindness can go." - Rachel Scott
The Rachel's Challenge program was adopted by Catawba County Schools this year. We are challenged to look for the best in others, dream big, choose positive influences, speak with Kindness, and to start our own chain reaction! Around the school you may see paper chains being created by our students and staff to represent the kind actions taking place at Snow Creek. Please join us in encouraging each other to show kindness and compassion towards others!
