Ashe County High School CTE Student of the Month


I have had the distinct pleasure of having Jacob C. as a student in my Construction 1, 2, 3 classes and on my list of outstanding students at Ashe County High School.  Jacob has been more than the ideal student.  In order to achieve the highest grades and my deepest respect, he has demonstrated outstanding leadership and maintained a clear sense of purpose. He currently is taking honors level 3 Carpentry.
Since his classmates, my fellow teachers, and I will always hold him in the highest esteem, I sincerely have recommended Jacob C. for January Student of the Month.

December Ashe County High School Agriculture Education Student of the Month

The December Ashe County High School Agriculture Education Student of the Month is Kiana O.  Kiana is a junior in the Animal Science 1 class, where she maintains one of the highest averages in the class.  In addition to high grades, Kiana is also a tireless worker, both in and out of school, is a leader among her peers, always setting a good example for others to follow, and is always willing to help fellow classmates out when they are struggling with a topic from class or an issue in their lives.  Kiana has a true passion for agriculture, especially animal husbandry, and health care.  She is an active member of the Ashe County High School FFA chapter, having attended the National FFA Convention trip with the chapter in October and plans on competing on a couple of competition teams in the spring.  Kiana is also a member of the HOSA chapter at ACHS.  Her future plans include going to college and becoming either a Veterinarian or Pediatrician.  The Ashe County High School Agriculture Education Student of the Month is sponsored by the Ashe County Farm Bureau Board.  I would like to thank them for their continued support of the Agriculture Education Student of the Month, the ACHS Agriculture Education program, and the students of Ashe County.

Warning to Parents - Smartphone App Called After School

Millions of teenagers in high schools nationwide are using a smartphone app to anonymously share their deepest anxieties, secret crushes, vulgar assessments of their classmates and even violent threats, all without adults being able to look in.

The After School app has exploded in popularity this school year and is now on more than 22,300 high school campuses, according to its creators. Because it is designed to be accessible only to teenagers, many parents and administrators have not known anything about it.
