School open house

Open house for students going to Wayne County public schools are being held this week.

Elementary schools will hold open house on Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m.

Parents and students in middle and high schools will be held from 5 to 7 on Wednesday evening.

Spring Creek High School will hold an open house for incoming sixth-graders tonight from 6 to 7:30.

Eastern Wayne and Charles B. Aycock high schools will hold a separate open house for incoming ninth-graders on Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m.

Grantham School will hold open house for students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade on Thursday, and Edgewood Community Developmental School's open house will also be on Thursday.

"We encourage students and parents to attend the open house events," said Olivia Pierce, executive director for community relations. "It is an opportunity to meet teachers, to get supply lists, and to see the daily schedule for classes."

Tree and turtle programs

Join the park ranger at the Cliffs of the Neuse State Park for a tree-identification hike.

The hike will start Saturday at 2 p.m. Walkers should meet at the park's museum and wear good walking shoes. You may also want to bring insect repellent and water.

Then later that evening the park ranger will lead a program on turtles found in the park. That program begins at 7 at the lake bathhouse.
