Caroline High School Holds “Life Ready Day”

Tuesday, November 26th, the CHS Counseling Department held their first “Life Ready Day” from 7:00-11:00. The CCPS Strategic Plan 2022 commits that graduates from Caroline High School be 3E Ready: Employed, Enlisted, or Enrolled. Seventy-nine facilitators presented sessions to the students on various topics. Some of the topics included “Interviewing Tips”, “Overcoming Failure”, “Life After High School is Real”, “Getting to and Through College”, and “Living Your Best Life 101”. Representatives from Central Office, Virginia State Police, colleges, military, television, Caroline County, Caroline’s Promise, and local businesses were just a few who gave their valuable time to the students. The high school provided lunch to the volunteers when the event concluded.

Caroline County School Board Designated as VSBA Board of Distinction

This afternoon, at the awards luncheon during the Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) Annual Convention, the Caroline County School Board was designated as a VSBA Board of Distinction. Boards receiving this award must apply for it and meet specific requirements in four key areas: planning, policy, promotion, and board development. A panel of judges reviews the criteria submitted and determines those awarded the VSBA Board of Distinction status.

“The Caroline County School Board is committed to each graduate being 3E Ready: Employed, Enlisted, or Enrolled,” said Board Chair, George Spaulding. “Our collective focus on crafting policies, allocating resources, and providing relevant learning opportunities in support of this mission drives our daily work. The School Board is proud of Caroline County Public Schools’ achievements and views the VSBA Board of Distinction recognition as a symbolic representation of our collaborative and strategic efforts.”

The board was recognized at the VSBA Annual Convention in Williamsburg, VA, which brings together school board members, superintendents, division administrators, and education officials from across the state.

BGE Donuts with Dad

Every year, BGE opens its doors to the fathers and father-figures in their students’ lives for their Donuts with Dad event. Dads, uncles, brothers, grandfathers, and even moms brave the parking challenges and flood the hallways and classrooms to show support for their students’ education and to enjoy a breakfast treat with them in their classrooms. This year’s event took place on Friday, October 25th; there were around 300 guests in attendance.

Every guest received a donut and water, and every student – regardless of whether or not they had a guest visit them – received a donut and juice. Students loved seeing their family members in the building during the school day, and the guests enjoyed seeing the warm and inviting environments in which their students learn every day. BGE looks forward to this event every year, and this year was no exception.

Chick-fil-A Leader Academy focuses on the following leadership insights: vision and values, servant leadership, teamwork, communication, innovation and impact. 30 CHS students from 9th-12th grade will work together throughout the year and be exposed to timeless leadership principles and equipped with the skills needed to put those principles into practice. Throughout the program, students will also plan an end-of-year Impact Project, which is the culmination of the program. The Impact Project is student-planned and student-led. Stay tuned for great things from this group of kids!
