Gaston County Schools will have more than 30 students competing in the regional science and engineering fair at UNC-Charlotte. Their wins at the Gaston Regional Science and Engineering Fair in January propelled them into the regional competition with a chance to advance to the statewide science fair. Students from Ashbrook, Stuart W. Cramer, Forestview, Gaston Early College, Belmont Middle, Holbrook Middle, Mount Holly Middle, and Rankin Elementary qualified to participate in the regional event.
Three days a week, teachers at Sherwood Elementary become students for the afternoon so they can learn basic grammar, spelling, and pronunciation. In Spanish, that is. The school’s ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher Edgar Coronado is offering Spanish lessons to any interested teachers. The classes are giving teachers new ways to communicate with their students, and perhaps more important, with their students’ parents.
Gaston County Schools continues to rank as the safest large school district in North Carolina, according to data released Thursday by the N.C. Department of Public Instruction and State Board of Education. Of the ten largest school districts in the state, Gaston County has the lowest school crime and violence rate. Gaston’s rate for the 2015-2016 academic year is 3.740. The school crime rate for Gaston County Schools has been significantly lower than that state rate for the past seven years.
From board game pieces to a mechanical hand, students at Cherryville High School are getting the chance to envision, design, and then bring their ideas into 3D reality thanks to a teacher who is engaging her students with technology. The MakerBot is what makes Joy Cash’s classroom unique. It’s a desktop 3D printer, and Cherryville was the first school in Gaston County to use one. For the past three years, Cash has been teaching students to create objects with the printer and helping them to learn math, art, physics, and science in the process.
