VERY IMPORTANT FOR CHAPERONES!!
If you have paid to be a chaperone for the trip, you will need to be fingerprinted very soon as it takes a few weeks to process. The list of dates is available in the front office. The sheet that needs to be turned in at the County Office is also available in the front office (it requires Mrs. Bracy's signature so please make sure you have it prior to going to the County Office.)
If you are not fingerprinted prior to the trip, you will not be allowed to attend and no refunds can be provided.

Jelly Drive for the Onslow County Chew Program
PLEASE HELP OUT.........Childhood hunger in Onslow County is a growing concern. CHEW (Children Healthy Eating on Weekends) is a program that assist children in Onslow by providing a backpack filled with child friendly foods which are easy to prepare. The CHEW program serves 498 students in Onslow County schools and 101 of those students are in the Stateside/Richlands area.
March 12 -March 16, Stateside Elementary School will be collecting jars of jelly for the CHEW program. We are asking that each student try to bring at least one jar of jelly. Please, no glass jars. Our goal is to collect 800 jars of jelly. CHEW packs 104 jars of jelly a month. Please help the students in our community by donating. All donations will be used for Stateside and Richlands' schools.
