Vance County Schools and the Perry Memorial Library are partnering to support students' ongoing education. We share the belief that a love of books and learning is a strong foundation for student success and we are working together to provide every Vance County Schools student access to books and resources found at their public library.
Beginning March 1, 2020, all Vance County Schools students will be able to use their Student ID number to access and borrow public library books and resources. We are calling this initiative StudentAccess. There is additional information available, as well as the opt-out form if you wish for your child to not be included. Follow the hyperlinks below.
We are excited about this opportunity for our students and the access it opens for them to enrich their knowledge.
The Vance County Board of Education approved the school calendars for the 2019-2020 school year during the board's March 11, meeting.
E.O. Young, Jr. Elementary School students had a unique opportunity on October 30, to sample a new biscuit during their lunch period and vote on whether or not they liked it. Based on the students' feedback, the school system will decide if it wants to provide the new biscuit with school meals at all local schools.
Exciting changes are coming to E.O. Young, Jr. Elementary School for the 2018-2019 school year. Principal Marylaura McKoon and her colleagues on the school's design team for the Opportunity Culture initiative are completing plans to implement the innovative program to benefit students and staff members in the school.
Our mission is to set high expectations to empower creative leadership. Our mission will be accomplished through an academically rich and safe environment where students can become part of an interactive diverse community, in which they feel safe and successful.
The vision of our school is to provide a warm, loving and inviting environment where everyone is empowered to be responsible learners, outstanding leaders, accepting of others and respectful of everyone.
