"Greetings, Early College parents. Today we distributed report cards, technology fee reminders, spring picture envelopes, and a spring festival flyer. If you received a technology fee reminder, send payment to Mrs. Jaco as soon as possible. Fees that are not paid will delay a student’s fall schedule at A-B Tech. Student picture packages must be pre-paid on Friday, see the envelope for details. A spring festival will be held this Saturday as part of the 2nd years World Change Project. Check out the pink flyer for all of the fun details and tell all of your friends! If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s grades, we encourage you to contact the teachers directly for more information.
Thank you for supporting your child and Buncombe County Early College!" Bonnie Johnston

"Good Evening, This is Karen Morgan the school counselor at Buncombe County Early College and I want to tell you about College Night at the Asheville Mall this Thursday, Sept. 13 from 6 – 9 p.m.
Are you interested in learning about N.C. colleges and colleges from across the southeast? Do you have questions about the majors each college offers? What would you like to study and what careers interest you. Are you concerned about how much it will cost to go to a particular four year university?
If you are interested in these questions and more I encourage students and parents to attend the College Night at the Asheville Mall this week on Thursday, September 13 from 6:00 – 9:00
College Representatives from over 150 colleges want to talk with students and parents and share information and the excitement they have for their college or university. Perhaps you will discover a college you had never considered as a good match for you and your interests. It is never too early to begin planning for college so I hope you will attend College Night this Thursday, September 13 from 6 – 9 pm at the Asheville Mall.
Thank you for your time. Good Night."
