Do you know where your food comes from? Each year the Alamance County Agri-Business Committee offers the Farm-To-Table program to give fourth graders the chance to learn about agriculture in our community. This program, provided at no charge, educates children about where their food comes from and what is involved in food production before it reaches the dining room table. Several different areas of farming are represented while touring the nine stations- dairy, poultry, the table (food/nutrition), beekeeping, forestry products, beef cattle, field crops, soil and water conservation, and plant science. At the end, students take home a goody bag with some souvenirs and more information. It was a beautiful day at the park to learn more about the farming industry! Thanks to the committee, sponsors, volunteers, and FFA students from Southern Alamance High School for helping make this event so successful. #ABSSCommunity #StudentCenteredFutureFocused

ABSS Update: Our ABSS family and community are deeply saddened today about the death of one of our Eastern High School students, Devin Clark. Devin was a former Eagles Football player and will always be remembered as a kind-hearted, gentle giant who was well liked by his classmates. The loss of a student is a difficult and challenging situation that can generate a high level of anxiety and distress in students. During this time, as the school community processes this tragic news and copes with grief, ABSS will have additional counselors from across the District at Eastern High School to support our students and staff. We encourage families to talk with their children about this tragic event. Discussing thoughts and feelings about this situation is important in helping your child work through their grief. Our condolences and thoughts go out to Devin’s family, friends, and classmates and to the Orange County School community who are also grieving the loss of a student there.
