BRHS Clothing Drive
As a result of these conversations, many of our Worthy Wednesday Family Groups decided to adopt service projects to benefit our school community and/or the Blue Ridge community. One of these projects will be the creation of a clothing closet that will be located here at BRHS. Students will be able to come into the Clothing Closet Boutique to try on and take items that might be needed. The students are asking for others to bring new or gently used clothes to donate to this effort. If you would like more information or would like to help, please contact Amanda Spencer, email@example.com, or Luke Parr, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Worthy Wednesday Service
BRHS Course Selection Night
We had an outstanding time hosting our current and future 9th grade students at our Course Selection Night. Students and parents were able to learn about high school graduation requirements, course offerings at BRHS, and some of our electives.
If you weren't able to attend or still have questions, we encourage you to call or email the BRHS Counselor, Brooke Ingersoll, at email@example.com. She will be meeting with all 8th-11th grade students in their English classes over the next few weeks.
February 6-10 is National School Counseling Week!

Faculty Highlight: Rachna Sachdeva

With more than a decade of teaching experience, she began her teaching career as a high school teacher in Fall 2007.
Sachdeva holds a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and a Master of Science in Mathematics from Hindu College, Delhi University, India.
What would you like parents and students to know about math classes at the Farmersville Campus?
Professor Sachdeva: We offer a wide variety of math classes at the Farmersville Campus including developmental math classes, College Algebra, Statistics, and Business Math. The Farmersville Campus has a very welcoming atmosphere where faculty and staff go out of their way to nurture and support students.
Since class sizes are small, there is plenty of time for professors to develop one-on-one relationships with students. In addition, we offer many resources to further support our students and to ensure their success such as the Anthony Peterson Center for Academic Assistance, Student Services, and the Career Center. Students feel at home at the Farmersville Campus.
