VCS Convocation Celebrates New Beginning
The Vance County Schools' Convocation for all employees to begin the 2017-2018 school year celebrated educational achievements for the recently completed year and new challenges that lie ahead.
The event focused on the district's theme for the new year: "Believe It!"
Superintendent Anthony Jackson led the celebration and told all employees that he believes our school system can be the very best.
Staff members from 15 of our 17 schools arrived at the Convocation on school buses. They came off the buses carrying signs and banners and wearing t-shirts with slogans proclaiming their commitments for the new year. Students who make up the drum lines in the bands at Southern Vance and Northern Vance high schools played as the educators unloaded from the buses and entered McGregor Hall for the event. Cheerleaders from both high schools also lined the hallway and cheered for the educators as they entered the auditorium.
Staff members at E.M. Rollins Elementary School and the Vance County Early College High School could not attend the event, because they have been in school with students since classes began on August 1 and August 3, respectively.
The Convocation had a "pep rally" atmosphere and proved again to be a great way for everyone to begin their work for the new school year!
