Catawba Heights Elementary and Stanley Middle School took overall top honors in the sixth annual Gaston County Schools robotics competition held Saturday, March 11 at Forestview High School. The two schools, along with six others that had the top scores among all participating teams, will represent Gaston County in the western regional robotics competition on April 29.
Walls are going up and the new Stanley Middle School is taking shape. It has been seven months since the groundbreaking ceremony when all that could be seen on the school’s former football field were mounds of dirt and construction equipment. Now, curious passersby can see where the school will be located and envision a modern facility that should be ready for use during the 2017-2018 academic year.
Gaston County Schools in partnership with Gaston College will present the annual Manufacturing and Career Expo on Thursday, March 23. The event makes it possible for students to explore career options in advanced manufacturing that are right here in Gaston County. The theme is “Ignite Your Future: Introducing Students to Profitable Careers,” and activities take place in the Myers Center on the college campus in Dallas.
Gaston County Schools won 34 awards in the highly-competitive Mid-Carolina Regional Scholastic Art and Writing Awards program. The awards included 12 Gold Key, 11 Silver Key, and 11 honorable mentions. “I am extremely proud of our students’ achievements,” said Forestview High School art teacher Travis Johnson. “To receive a Gold Key in the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards means that you are producing some of the best quality work in the state.”
