In Union County Public Schools here in North Carolina, it's time to print those back-to-school classroom supplies lists from your teachers!
School "Meet the Teacher" open houses for some schools begin on Friday, August 4th - check each school's unique website for date and time. This is the day some schools ask you to bring in your school supplies.
Let's make it easy - here are the Quick Links to your school's websites:
UCPS also has some great "Back to School Tips" to remember.
Don't forget sometimes the best back-to-school deals are at your local CVS and Walgreen's drug stores - you just need to make a list and shop a little each week, buying only what's on sale.
Where is your favorite place to shop for school supplies in Waxhaw?
Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 3-5, 2012 is a "Sales Tax Holiday" in North Carolina on clothing, school supplies and even computers.
Read all the NC Tax Free Weekend details, qualifying items and restrictions via North Carolina Department of Revenue website.
Some important things to note:
- All clothing, footwear and school supplies are EXEMPT from sales tax this weekend if the individual item costs LESS THAN $100.
- Jewelry, cosmetics and wallets are not included.
- Tablet computers and netbooks that cost $3,500 or less per item qualify, but eReaders do not.
- Items are not necessarily exempt from sales tax just because they are required by a child's school or sports team.
- View the Complete List of tax-exempt items.

Here are the movies playing this Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday (August 7, 8, 9, 2012) @ 10:00 a.m.:
