Valley Springs Middle School was recently recognized by the Exceptional Children Division of the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction at the annual Positive Behavior Intervention & Support (PBIS) Initiative Workshop & Recognition
Join Now!! The purpose of the Battle of the Books program is to encourage reading by all students at the middle school level. Students, regardless of ability, are exposed to quality literature representing a variety of literary styles and viewpoints by prominent authors in the area of young adult literature. The game format creates interest and excitement in reading. Through the fun and excitement of the competition, students improve reading skills, mature in their choices of reading materials, and acquire a broader knowledge base. Even during the height of the competition, students and coaches should remember that the goal is to READ, not necessarily to win!
Buncombe County Schools' Graduation Initiative will again be offering the Twilight School program for high school students to earn new credits or recover credits in the evening. Any student who has failed a course and needs to repeat it or any student who needs a new course to get back on track for graduation may apply.
BCS Middle and High School students will have the opportunity to earn credit for high school courses. It is an opportunity for an individual student who has an exceptional mastery of course content and who wishes to earn credit and move on into something more meaningful or challenging.
This opportunity is part of the district’s Enrollment for Education Solutions (EES) agreement and will provide students with a tool for learning at home using the most current, universally accepted platforms in the marketplace today.
