As we have traveled roads throughout the county this afternoon, some dirt roads are still questionable for bus travel. If you live on one of these roads, your bus may be stopping at a main paved road off of your road. If you live in a cul-de-sac where a bus turns around, make sure vehicles and tractors are out of the path of the bus. Please be patient with the bus driver as they may need extra time and community support to transport our children to school safety. We are glad to be partners with our parents in taking care of all of Alexander County's children. Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing our students tomorrow.

Eighth-grade students from West Alexander Middle School participated in Alexander County’s first student STEM Tour on November 20, 2018. The students were divided into groups and assigned to visit two of the four participating businesses. Our appreciation is extended to Hancock and Moore, Leonard’s Express, Ole Still Golf Club and Anchor-Richey EVS for allowing our students the opportunity to learn about various careers available, the necessary education needed for employment and possible salary ranges.

Coming soon - the 2018 Designs! A committee will vote on the artwork provided by the students. The winning designs will be used as the official ACS Holiday Card. The card will be mailed or sent electronically to friends and associates of the school system. Up to four winners will be chosen.
