    Sustainable Sandhills LogoAfter Hurricane Florence, our Carbon Bank took a hit. The Loblolly Pine trees we planted out at the Cumberland County Educational Resource Center (396 Elementary Drive, Fayetteville, North Carolina 28301) are in need of helping hands. 

    Join us for a volunteer opportunity *this* Saturday, October 6 from 10 AM to 12 PM. We’ll be making sure these Loblolly trees have their roots back in the ground so they can keep growing strong. 

    Not sure what to bring? Wear shoes that you don’t mind getting wet and make sure you bring along insect repellant, in case the mosquitoes are still bite-y. There’s no need to RSVP. If you can join us, we’ll see you out there!

        Students from Eastover-Central School of the Arts sitting on a hardwood floor holding representations of the art programs offered at their schoolFayetteville, NC – Today, the U.S. Department of Education named Eastover-Central Elementary School of Arts as a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School. This honor is bestowed upon “Exemplary High Performing” schools that have their state’s highest achieving students (the top 15%), as measured by state assessments. 

        “I’m pleased to celebrate with you as your school is named a National Blue Ribbon School,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos in a video message to the honorees.  “We recognize and honor your important work in preparing students for successful careers and meaningful lives. Congratulations on your students’ accomplishments and for your extraordinary commitment to meeting their unique needs.”

        Eastover-Central was one of 349 schools recognized across the country today, and one of eight schools recognized in North Carolina.

        “The students, guardians, parents, greater school community, staff and faculty of Eastover-Central Elementary School of Arts are thrilled to be chosen for this distinction,” said Ashley Porter, principal of Eastover-Central. “As earning the National Blue Ribbon accolade is the highest honor bestowed upon a school in the United States, it is humbling and simultaneously emblematic of the daily dedication and hard work of all Eastover-Central stakeholders.”

        Now in its 36th year, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program has bestowed recognition on more than 8,800 schools. On November 7-8, school honorees will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C.
