ACPS Announcements
NEW WEBSITE
Appomattox County Public Schools is transitioning to a new website.  Please click this link to be redirected until the transition is complete.  Thank you for your patience.
Welcome!
On behalf of the Appomattox County School Board and our staff, welcome to our website.  Explore our website and our four school websites.  Appomattox County is located in rural central Virginia.  We provide public education to approximately 2200 students who are enrolled in our four schools in the school division.  Those schools include Appomattox Primary School (Preschool – Grade 2), Appomattox Elementary School (Grades 3-5), Appomattox Middle School (Grades 6-8), and Appomattox County High School (Grades 9-12).  We are proud of our students and staff in ACPS.  Last year all four of our schools were fully accredited by the Virginia Department of Education. We were one of only 37 school divisions in Virginia to achieve this status.

Our theme for this year is Striving for Excellence.  Our goal is to engage every student in meaningful and rigorous work with high expectations.  We accomplish this through the use of innovative instructional practices, a guaranteed curriculum, and up-to-date technology.  We want our students to be motivated and hard workers in order to be career or college ready upon graduation.  ACPS aims to provide a high quality education for every child, filled with a wide range of academic, extra-curricular, and athletic opportunities. 
Virginia School Board Association 21st Annual VSBA Showcases
The Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) has released its 21st annual VSBA Showcases for Success directory, highlighting successful K-12 programs in Virginia’s public schools. This year’s featured programs highlight successful projects related to Innovative Programs, School Initiatives, and Partnerships. “In addition to highlighting some of the best practices taking place in Virginia’s schools, the VSBA Showcases for Success directory can serve as a starting point to develop similar programs in other school divisions,” said Gina G. Patterson, VSBA executive director, “It is important to highlight innovative programs at all levels in school divisions, and the VSBA Showcases for Success directory illustrates that there are excellent programs and initiatives taking place in Virginia’s public schools.” The directory is available on the VSBA web site at vsba.org/showcases. A total of 118 programs from 56 school divisions from across Virginia are included. Congratulations to ACHS Nurse Aide Program and Student Volunteer Exchange Program!
Appomattox Students Win First Place in Student-Led Ideation Challenge
Congratulations go out to Nate Simpson, Kendra Fetty, and Geoff Zdgiebloski on their amazing 1st place finish at the SLIC competition on April 1, 2017. The team won $3000, financial and technical support to get their prototype up and running, and a sponsor from Silicon Valley to help them with their business plan! Congratulations!

ACHS Awarded Grant for STEM Competition Team Initiative
Appomattox County High School has been awarded a Virginia Department of Education $5000 grant with the purpose of building a technology-focused, competition drone team. The goals of the two year project are to engage students in STEM related activities, promote an awareness of how problem-based learning can positively and directly impact our community, and create a philanthropic opportunity for our youth to work in partnership with our locality to provide a life-saving technology. This program will provide students the opportunity to design, build, and fly a drone with the real-world application of search and rescue. The STEM Competition Team is partnering with our local law enforcement, fire, and rescue agencies to make available the same state of the art technologies more commonly used in larger localities to find missing persons, respond to Amber Alerts, collect evidence, intelligence, and other valuable information to respond to emergencies.

Congratulations ACHS Nursing Program Graduates
Each year we are fortunate enough to have nursing program graduates.  This year is no exception.  Pictured are the graduates and their teacher (in the very back left) Mrs. Renee Wingfield.  Congratulations!!
Appomattox Primary School Wins Virginia Breakfast Challenge
School divisions were placed into one of four categories based on the division’s enrollment. One elementary, middle, and high school in each category won, based on breakfast participation growth over the past school year. Breakfast participation from October through December 2016 was compared to breakfast participation from October through December 2015.
 
Your hard work and dedication to ensuring your students have breakfast every school day morning has paid off! School winners will receive some very exciting prizes in the next few weeks. 
  • Funding to support equipment for your school’s nutrition program
  • $4,000 to support technological enhancements, field trips or playground equipment 
Kudos! Keep up the awesome work. Thanks to you, Virginia is on track to serve 8 million more breakfasts during the 2016-2017 school year, compared to the 2013-2014 school year. Thank you for helping us achieve a “no kid hungry” Virginia.
