<Rock Hill has been named as one of the top 100 Best Communities for Young People by the America's Promise Alliance. The 100 Best competition recognizes the 100 outstanding communities across America—large and small, rural and urban—that are the best places for young people to live and grow up. Rock Hill was chosen due to its commitment to improving the lives of its young people, including the collaborative efforts among the City of Rock Hill, Rock Hill School District Three, and the United Way of York County.

<Students at Northwestern will join millions of their peers across the country to celebrate the ninth annual National Education Association's (NEA) Read Across America Day on March 3, which falls on Dr. Seuss's 100th birthday. To honor the good doctor and celebrate the fun and value of reading, classes will participate in silent sustained reading with a twist. The class with the most Cat-in-the-Hat hats (bought or made) will win an ice cream party. In addition, the media center will serve free hot chocolate during all three lunches, and district personnel will be on campus throughout the day to read to classes.

<Main Street in the downtown area should be brimming with student artwork beginning Feb. 20. Banners designed by students will be on display as a prelude to Youth Art Month in March.
