Picture of a salt shaker on its side with the words "eat less SALT!" written in the spilled saltMost of us get more sodium than we need. Even if you go easy on the salt shaker, your sodium intake may still be high. Packaged and prepared foods such as ready-to-eat products or restaurants meals are common sources of sodium. Learn about common sources of sodium. Begin the new year by making small changes that lead to big wins. For more healthy tips, visit wellness.ccs.k12.nc.us.

The CCS Reading Rocks Worm sitting on a rock reading a book and listening to music on his headphonesMany thanks to everyone who supported this year’s Reading Rocks! literacy and fundraising campaign. By the conclusion of the campaign on December 1, 2017, we raised over $2,200!! Everyone’s donations are greatly appreciated, and 100% of the donations stay at our school and will be spent on student-use iPads and books!

This year, SFCMS raised funds through a school-wide dance, a grade-level “money war,” and a basket raffle. We are also especially thankful to the following individual donors who helped us through their direct donations.

Silver-Level Sponsor: LifeLink Medical Group, PLLC
Bronze-Level Sponsors: John & Catherine Pollard and Liliana & Lamont Cephas

Thank you! We look forward to continuing to celebrate literacy all year both in and out of the classroom!
