Students at Woodhill Elementary made their mark on “Dot Day” by donating $440 in change to the Gastonia Police Foundation. The school sponsored the money collection in an effort to teach the children about supporting their community. It’s an idea inspired by the children’s book “The Dot” by Peter H. Reynolds. The students also got an opportunity to spend time with officers and learn about the police department’s bomb squad and K-9 units.
Students can get a head start on their career and college plans this year thanks to a new partnership between Gaston County Schools and Gaston College. The school district is part of the NCWorks Career Coach Program, an initiative to help high school students learn about education and job opportunities available to them after graduation.
The high school graduation rate for Gaston County Schools has increased again, according to information released Thursday by the North Carolina State Board of Education.
