CFIE Weekly Updates

May 29, 2015

It's been an incredible week in the forest! Teachers and students at Carolina Forest will be featured in a Larry King In View Series Documentary on Onslow County Schools. Producers visited Carolina Forest on Wednesday and filmed footage of our students immersed in global learning opportunities. Channel 7 news also visited on Wednesday to highlight Mrs. Bryant and her 5th grade students who generously donated $2,000 to a tornado victim in Illinois. The link can be found in this newsletter.


Our eagles have had an action packed week of field trips and final preparations for their end-of-grade tests. Kindergarten students visited Mike's Farm to pick strawberries while our 3rd grade students visited the Chapel Hill Planetarium today.


A special thank you to our strategic planning team parents who joined us on Friday for the Onslow County Schools job fair. Mrs. Sara Dowd and Mr. Graham Hopkins helped us recruit new teachers for the 2015/2016 school year.
