Projects: Projects include the Kidzilt program in which high school FTA members go to the Hominy Valley Elementary After School Program to read a book to the children and lead them in some activities designed to improve their literacy skills. We also have members who tutor individual students one-on-one and we adapt books for the students in the Progressinve Education Program. We volunteer as buddies for the Special Olympians at the Buncombe Co. Special Olympics and we welcome new teachers to our school by making cards and goodie bags for them.
