About half of our fourth grade ESG students have completed some work with paleontology. These students researched and discussed phosphate - a key North Carolina resource. We then got to use sediment from the PCS Phosphate Company in Aurora, NC to find fossils.
I mentioned half . . . the other half can look forward to this work in the coming weeks. My schedule can be crazy at times, but I promise all ESG students will get the opportunity!
Here's some snaps of our scientists at work:

Claxton Theatre

I know, I know . . . it's a terrible photo! Think of it as an impressionistic view of the play!
I did want to shout out to all the many folks who made Claxton's production ANOTHER resounding success. Chief among these shareholders are Mrs. Baldwin and Mr. Butler whose work cannot be underestimated. It's hard to imagine the hard work that goes into such a glorious production. Way to go, Claxton!

A Message from Dr. Baldwin

Strategic Planning Sessions

The public is invited to attend one of two strategic planning sessions that will be hosted in the ACS Board room at 85 Mountain Street on Thursday, April 9th and on Thursday, April 16th. Each of these interactive events will last from 6 until 7 PM.

We will provide a 15-minute update on our plans and progress to date as we create a new strategic plan to guide our district over the next couple of years. We will then divide into small working groups to help facilitate the capture of your input and ideas.  Your feedback is valued!

Please join us on either April 9th or April 16th and donate an hour of your time to share your hopes and dreams for Asheville City Schools and the 4,300+ children we serve.
