Announcement

One of the agenda items at the Caroline County School Board meeting on Monday, April 14, 2014 will be the discussion and possible approval of a pre Labor Day start of school for the 2014-15 school year. The purpose of this announcement is to let you know that it is being discussed and if it is approved, it will result in changes to the 2014-15 school calendar. Caroline County is now eligible for a waiver to start before Labor Day due to the number of days missed over the last 10 year period. More information will be available after Monday’s School Board meeting.

Caroline Brings Home Gold

On Saturday April 5th, at the Roanoke Civic Center, Caroline High School competed in the State Power Equipment Technology (Small Engine) Competition through Skills USA (formerly VICA). We are pleased to report that Austin Borow, a junior at CHS, won that competition and has brought a gold medal back to Caroline. Austin won a gift card to Advance Auto Parts, a Snap-On tool set, a scholarship award, and he has qualified to represent the State of Virginia at the national competition later in June. The competition involved writing a resume, a test on engine theory and shop safety, the setting of multiple cylinder timing, the setting of valve clearance, battery testing and inspection, and an equipment preventative maintenance inspection. Mr. Anderson, Austin’s teacher, is extremely proud of him and all of the time and hard work he has spent preparing himself for a career in mechanics. Mr. Anderson says that Austin has great skill for his age and he has an incredible work ethic. Congratulations Austin!
