Buncombe County Schools
Week in Review

Students at Enka High School can check out more than just books at their school library! This unique program grew out of the school's rock climbing club. The school used a grant to purchase backpacks, tents, sleeping bags, and mats. Students are able to check out this camping gear, like they would a library book, and use it to enjoy the outdoors!

Watch the "Never Stop Learning" segment on WLOS!

Thanks to Teachers: Sherrie Howard
Math can be a challenging subject for some students, but Sherrie Howard, a longtime math teacher at C.T. Koontz Intermediate School, has given her students a new love and confidence for the subject. Watch the WLOS segment on Ms. Howard.
