Alleghany High School Fall Extravaganza for the Community 

The Alleghany High School Administration would like to thank and congratulate the students, staff, parents, guardians, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, cousins, and community members on a wonderful Alleghany High School Fall Extravaganza.   This was first event of this kind at AHS, and it was great learning opportunity for everyone to see what our students and staff have been doing, as well as make connections for the future growth of the school and community.   

 “On behalf of the administration of Alleghany High School thank you!” said AHS Principal Dwayne Ross. “We appreciate your efforts with the fall extravaganza.  You have proven what we have known all along, you have a great deal of potential and no limit on the things you can accomplish!”   

 The goal of Alleghany County Public Schools is for its students, staff, and community to be the guide for the world to follow.  In order to be the guide, they must first explore, design, create, map, and build along the way.   

 “We will continue to work and learn by refining our successes and correcting our mistakes as we use project and problem based learning to benefit everyone.  We hope to improve our learning outcomes, community involvement, and be better each day in the future.   Your feedback is vital to this end,” said Ross.

 If you have ideas and/or resources to contribute to our students growth please contact Alleghany High School at 863-1700 or email Dwayne Ross, principal at dross@alleghany.k12.va.us or Jackie Almarode, AHS New Tech coordinator at jalmarode@alleghany.k12.va.us

The TEACH students finished their successful internship at the Clifton Forge Library, and our students were given a celebration by the director and his staff.  Invited guests were, Mr. Kotulka, Dr. Heath, Mary Jane Mutispaugh, Ms. Huff, and Ms. Birchfield.  The students displayed their capabilities in categorizing, organizing, and shelving books, and they  shared this knowledge by performing the tasks for their guests.  The photos below are the students performing their task and enjoying the “fruits of their labors”.

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. (from left to right:  Amber Burton, Grace Fields, Caydance Ramsey, Rylee Reynolds, and Maegan Trentine)

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.
