On Wednesday, October 4, 2018, long time Alleghany High School science teacher,
Stacey Nicole Gibson passed away from cancer.  Ms. Gibson was an amazing teacher who was deeply loved by her students and the entire staff.  The Alleghany High School family is heartbroken by her passing.   Ms. Gibson  was a devoted Christian whose strength and faith in God were very strong. She wanted everyone to know before  she passed that she had a wonderful 43 years, and she has lived a very full and amazing life. She wanted to make sure that everyone at the high school knows that she loves us very much, and her only regret about leaving is that she knew she is going to make a lot of people sad and cry, especially her students over the years because she loves them so much.   She said she will find a way to look out for the high school and her family, even if she has to break some rules to do it.   She is going to be our guardian angel.  She repeated several times that she loves us all very much and wants everyone to do their very best in her memory.

FCCLA Day at the State Fair of Virginia

 October 3, 2018, Alleghany High School members of the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) attended FCCLA Day at the State Fair of Virginia in Doswell, Virginia. Over 25 members, advisers, and chaperones enjoyed a day filled with educational and leadership opportunities.

 Members were given the opportunity to participate in four FCCLA contests – FCCLA Poster, Brand FCCLA Wear-Accessories, Brand FCCLA Wear-Clothing, and Brand FCCLA at Home. FCCLA state officers judged the projects based on originality, creativity, and neatness. Those pictured received a ribbon for their entries.

Members also participated in an SOL Scavenger Hunt where they explored Virginia’s largest outdoor classroom, matching educational opportunities throughout the fairgrounds with related Standards of Learning, including those encompassing family and career issues.

 FCCLA is The Ultimate Leadership Experience for students enrolled in Family and Consumer Sciences across the nation. It is the only national in-school organization with the family as its central focus. Participation in state and national programs and chapter activities helps members become strong leaders in their families, careers, and communities.

Dear Parents /Guardians,

 Our school division is on a continuous journey to make our schools the best places for students to learn, staff to work, and parents to send their children for a good education. In this effort, we appreciate your support. It is important to gather feedback from you to celebrate successes and identify areas for growth. Please take a few minutes and complete this Parent Satisfaction Survey to help provide this feedback.  The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete, and the information this survey provides is vital to the continued efforts the make Alleghany High School and Alleghany County Public Schools the absolutely best school and school division in Virginia.

Once the survey is complete, the results will be analyzed by an outside organization. The data from the survey will be sent to each school and the Superintendent. Then, the results of the survey will be shared with parents and the community.

The survey can be accessed through October 18 online at: Alleghany Parent Satisfaction Survey  

For your needed help and convenience the survey can be accessed upstairs in the Alleghany High School Library or room 214 during parent teacher conferences.  Please take the time to complete this survey during your visit or at your earliest convenience online.

Thank you for your interest in and support of your child’s education. Please contact me if you have any questions concerning the survey.

Thanks for your time and attention, 
Dwayne Ross
