College Application Week is from 7:00  a.m. Monday, October 21 through 5:00 p.m. Friday October 25 . CAW’s popularity has led some colleges and universities to decide to entirely waive the application fee during this week. Not every participating college or university waives their application fee; however for those who qualify they will accept the College Board College Application Fee Waiver during CAW. All Community Colleges will be waiving their fees for CAW.  A variety of  college representatives will be on campus throughout the week. For a list of participating schools, please refer to the NC College Application Week flyer. Additional information can be found on the Senior Google Classroom information forum.

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.
