PTA Reflections
The PTA Reflections program serves as platform for students to unleash their inner artists! The theme for the 2016-2017 school year is "What is Your Story?" Students can express their creative talents through a variety of categories: dance, music composition, literature, visual arts, film production, photography, and special artist. Students may enter as many categories as many times as they like.

All entries will be due Tuesday, October 18th. All Fork Shoals participants will be recognized at an award ceremony in the spring. They even have the opportunity to be recognized at the district, state, and national levels. There will be a fun incentive for the class with the most entries to encourage student participation.

All rules and student entry forms may be found at scpta.org and on the PTA page of our school website. Every entry must have its own completed student entry form. If you have any questions, contact Ellington Willis either by email or phone: ellingtonhamrick@gmail.com, 864-490-6022.

1st Quarter Reading Challenge
Your child's goal: Read as many books as possible between now and October 20th. Reading logs must be turned in to Ms. Knight no later than Tuesday, October 25th. We’ll have prizes for those who read the most in each grade level, and every participant will receive recognition!

Students will receive reading logs during the first week of school. You can also print out a reading log here. (If your child reads more than 50 books, you can continue recording books on this blank reading log.) List books as you complete them. Remember that books can be counted only once, and only books finished should be recorded.

Freedom Rock
The Fork Shoals Freedom Rock is a fun, new way to show your support and to send a special message out to loved ones!
