What's Happening in Scotland County Schools
Varsity football game rescheduled
Because of the projected inclement weather on Friday, the Varsity Football game will be played Thursday 10/2 at 7:00pm in Goldsboro.
Fun day of fitness at Covington Street
Students, staff, and administration from Covington Street Elementary School gathered before 7:30 am this morning to walk to school. Led by staff in bright yellow safety vests with police officers clearing the way, the group walked the two blocks to school to kick off their 'Walk to School Wednesdays' event.
Beginning October 1, each Wednesday (weather permitting), buses and parents have the option to drop students off with staff at Presbyterian Park and, as a group, walk to school. This local effort is in conjunction with the national Safe Routes to School's effort to encourage students to get active and to encourage healthy habits.
Once students arrived at school, they had the opportunity to participate in the Running Red Birds group that walks and runs laps around the playground area every morning. And during the day, students were able to learn about bike and pedestrian safety from the Laurinburg Fire Department. Through grant money provided by Safe Routes to School, each student also was given a new bike helmet to take home.
Way to get active and stay healthy Red Birds!
