Sixth-graders' 'My Hero' books
shine light on everyday heroism


Sixth-graders know you don't need a cape to be a hero, as they've demonstrated in the "My Hero"
pop-up books on display at Chapel Hill's FRANK Gallery through April 9.


Faculty Spotlight 


Kindergarten Teacher
Janet Hampton


Knowing that children learn better when they are happy, Hampton works to make her classroom a joyful place where students learn they can be 'rock-steady' at school.


Cavs Corner 


In this week's Cavs Corner — concluding our spring sports season preview — we take a look at the boys lacrosse and track & field teams.




Blowing past their original goal, alumni came together to make 255 donations and raise $31,000 in a single day.
