If your student is considering attending Blue Ridge Community College in the Fall and have not met with Mrs. Garber, Career Coach, please encourage them to do so as soon as possible. This will ensure that the student will have completed all necessary steps to attend BRCC (applying to the college and for financial aid, scheduling placement tests if needed, registering for Fall classes) by the required deadline. Please contact Mrs. Garber with questions at 289-3101 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

You can say thank you to a teacher who has impacted you or your child by nominating him/her for the Inspire Award. This award aims to recognize teachers who go above and beyond in the classroom. Parents, students, pre-service teachers, or classroom volunteers may submit nominations.
The Inspire Award allows the school board and community to regularly and publicly celebrate the impact that RCPS teachers make each day, whether on a particular child or class, or by encouraging a future teacher. ~A teacher may be recognized once during a school year and submissions must be received ten days prior to a board meeting.
The person making the nomination will be invited to share his/her nomination essay of up to 200 words with the school board, and will make the presentation of a certificate to the honored teacher.
The nomination form can be found on the RCPS homepage under the “Parents/Students” tab.

Guys. Register with the Selective Service System @sss.gov when you turn 18 or cost yourself eligibility for government jobs, job training, college loans and in some states,
your driver's license. It's also the law.
