9/6 District 3 Update


2007 Sports Extravaganza

To help fund the district's new Power of Mentoring program, three sports events are being planned: a NHS vs. RHHS alumni flag football game on Sept. 22, featuring players and cheerleaders from the 70's, 80's, and 90's; a Motorcycle Benefit Ride on Sept. 29; and a golf tournament on Oct. 6. Immediate focus is directed to "Family Fun Day" on Sept. 22 where the alumni flag football game will be the culminating event. Everyone is invited to gather on the campus of South Pointe High and tailgate from 11:00-1:00. Families can bring their own food or purchase that offered by local vendors and school groups. Games and other activities will be available for students, as well as entertainment, and then everyone can enter the stadium at 1:00 for the football game for a $2 donation.


Northwestern Excited About Legacy Garden
The folks at Northwestern are excited about the development of a Legacy Garden, which is being made possible through a $5,000 grant from the Lowe's Toolbox for Education Program. The outdoor garden will provide students with a beautiful place to gather, whether before school, during lunch, with their teacher for a class in the amphitheater, or for an evening concert or reception. Through a brick engraving project, the school will honor former teachers and others. Contact the school for information on the brick project.



<The RHH Class of 1961 will unveil a historical marker at the former site of the school on E. White St. at 11:00 a.m. on Tues., Sept.11, which marks the 100th Anniversary of the first use of the name, Rock Hill High School.

<Over 1,000 volunteer applicants will receive word this week that their applications have received clearance.

<Lisa Hancock, a 4th grade teacher at Lesslie, is now an author. The Adventures of Sid, a picture book, is the story of a frog that went to school and was in a student's cubby. The book is available from major books stores.

<For the second year, the popular Andy Thomas Radio Show will be broadcast live throughout S.C. from Northwestern High on Sept. 26 from 3:30-5:00. Students will talk about age-appropriate topics in the news.
