Rock Hill Schools Information for Wednesday, November 12, 2008

By Elaine Baker

Rock Hill High Principal Judy Mobley has been selected as Administrator of the Year by the S. C.  School Counselors Association. Judy and several members of her staff attended a banquet on Nov. 10 in Charleston where Judy "thought" one of her counselors was to be recognized.

Representatives from all York County school districts have agreed upon a proposed calendar for 2009-10.
-All York County school districts will have the same major holidays, including winter and spring breaks and Good Friday.

-A day in each month, Sept. through May, is set aside for either a holiday or teacher day.
-There will be a teacher day following three of the four grading periods.
-First semester will be 91 days long.
-All three graduations will, hopefully, take place on Saturday, June 5. This is yet to be determined, however.

Rock Hill High's wrestling team is having its second annual Boston Butt Bonanza on Nov. 21 and Nov. 22. The roasts will be prepared and ready for pick up in front of the main gym from 2:00-7:00 p.m. on Nov. 21 and from 7:00 a.m. until noon on Nov. 22. Orders will be taken until Nov. 18 by contacting Cain Beard, Ryan Whitmore, or Justin Williams at 981-1300. The cost of each roast is $25.

Northwestern Girls' Varsity Basketball Team will host a "Basketball for Poverty" tournament on Nov. 24 and 25, the proceeds of which will benefit local organizations which battle poverty. For tickets or more information, email Coach John Bramlett or call 981-1231.

Rock Hill High thespians, directed by Stephanie Daniels, will present The Good Times are Killing Me by Lynda Barry at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 20 and Nov. 21.  Tickets are $5 and may be purchased at the door.  The play is about two 12-year-old best friends growing up in an interracial neighbor-hood during 1967.

Beverly Laney, choral teacher at South Pointe, is beaming with pride because two of her students have been chosen to participate in the national Honor Choir in Oklahoma City in March. Only six students from S. C. were selected.

The Applied Technology Center  will have a car show on Sat., Nov. 15, and they're seeking entries.

The current edition of Business Week cites Rock Hill as one of the "best places in the country to raise kids." It cites Rock Hill for its warm weather and some of the best public schools in the state, as well as home to Winthrop University.
