Science Olympiad
Published by Alison Perry on October 12, 2019
.....................................................................................................................................................................................
Science Olympiad is nationwide competition. Students compete in 19 events that include earth science, biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering. Science Olympiad is designed to increase a student’s interest in STEM fields and provide recognition for outstanding achievement in team events. Students compete in Science Olympiad with the top teams advancing from County to Regional to State to National levels.
 
 Students will be placed on teams and coaches  according  to Grade level, past participation, and availability. Coaches will arrange meeting days and times. Those meeting days will be given to you once the team has been formed. We are still looking for eight parent volunteers to coach events. If you are interested, please email KellyFoster@ccs.k12.nc.us
 
This is Honeycutt’s third year participating in the Cumberland County S.O. competition. We will be holding a parent and student interest meeting on Wednesday, October 16 from 3:30 PM-4:00 PM. Parents that are not able to attend may pick their students up at the rear of the building at 4 o’clock.

Wellness Tip: Childhood Obesity Awareness Month

Image of several children running through grass with caption of Childhood Obesity Awareness MonthOne in three children in the United States is overweight or obese. Childhood obesity puts kids at risk for health problems that were once seen only in adults, like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.

The good news is that childhood obesity can be prevented. In honor of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, CCS encourages your family to make healthy      changes together.

  • Get active outside: Walk around the neighborhood, go on a bike ride, or play basketball at the park.
  • Limit screen time: Keep screen time (time spent on the computer, watching TV, or playing video games) to 2 hours or less a day.
  • Make healthy meals: Buy and serve more vegetables, fruits, and whole-grain foods.

Taking small steps as a family can help your child stay at a healthy weight.
