We want to update our VCMS families with information following today’s school closure. With extensive electrical damage to the school from last night’s storms, Vance County Middle School will remain closed for students on Wednesday, May 25, 2022. All staff will report to The Center for Innovation auditorium at 9:30am on Wednesday, while students are encouraged to review and prepare for their End of Grade exams at home.
With the VCHS school year having ended, we are able to utilize that campus to resume school for VCMS. On Thursday, May 26, school will resume for all VCMS students and staff on the campus of Vance County High School. Buses for students will follow the same schedule but will be delivered to VCHS instead of VCMS. All car riders should be dropped off and picked up at Vance County High School (925 Garrett Rd). Breakfast and lunch will be provided as usual. Students will begin their End-of-Grade exams on Thursday with staff on hand to support students in getting to their test site.
Vance County Middle School will continue reporting to Vance County High School until further notice. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to finishing this year strong.

As members of the North Carolina High-Tech Learning Accelerator (NCHTLA) Advisory Council, two of our high school students, Briannah Royster and Joshua Hernandez, and our innovation lead, Dr. Destiney Ross-Putney, had the opportunity to participate in a two-day design lab in Wilmington, NC. Thirty-two students and nineteen innovation leads across the state worked in collaborative groups to tackle the design question, "What kinds of learning experiences might you design to help students learn about, prepare for, and pursue high-tech jobs?"
Arts Alive 2022 gave us a day full of art and appreciation, as our Vance County Schools students showcased their talents through visual and performing arts, as well as a culinary art experience.

Vance County Schools held a ribbon cutting today for Gargoyle Garden, a musical garden located at the Center for Innovation (CFI), located at 219 Charles Street. The garden is filled with musical instruments that provide experiences for students to learn about beats, music, echo, reverberation and much more! The garden is named after the gargoyles positioned across the facade as part of the 1930's construction of the building.
