Asheboro City School board members cut the ribbon at the grand opening of the Asheboro High School Welcome Center in Bear Creek on Feb. 7.

The Welcome Center will serve as a community hub for learning, collaboration, and innovation. Located within the newly renovated Global Innovation Center, the Welcome Center will provide a wide range of information and resources including school supplies, computer access, and material about community resources useful for families.

The Welcome Center has two rooms for community use: the Welcome Center room and the Comet Community Corner room to be used for classes and educational sessions for families. Both of these rooms are designed for group meetings and workshops. The purpose of the Welcome Center is to assist families in finding resources relevant to their child’s education and family needs.
