Final Four Mentors Needed
Final Four Mentors Needed

We are looking for rising upper-class (senior, junior, and/or sophomore) Final Four Mentors (F4M) for our freshman orientation program. The success of this program will largely be based on the caliber of our F4M. Essentially, this program will be designed and run by the F4Ms; therefore, we are looking for outgoing and caring students who like to help other people and wish to make Salem High School a better place. This will be very hard work, but the F4Ms will undoubtedly find it both a fun and a very rewarding experience.

Weigh in on the Future of VBCPS

Throughout the past two months, VBCPS staff has held focus groups, met with a variety of business and community organizations and monitored the submissions to the Virtual Town Hall site on vbschools.com to gather a list of priorities regarding the education of Virginia Beach students.

Now, an online survey, which incorporated the information gathered, has been developed. Here, students, teachers and community members will be able to indicate which ideas or concepts they feel are most relevant and necessary for the future of VBCPS.

Don't miss the opportunity to weigh in on the next strategic plan. The online survey will go live on April 21 and will be open until May 9. For more information about the planning process, or to access the online survey, visit http://www.vbschools.com/compass/beyond/index.asp.
