  Several students from Mrs. McConnell's AP Government classes made a presentation to the Colonial Heights City Council on March 10, 2015. They created a power point on limiting the use of plastic bags in the city. The students were first introduced to this topic during their City Government Day experience in December. Some of the students felt so strongly about the good that could come from limiting single-use plastic bags that they continued working on the topic during 2nd semester. The City Council members were very receptive to the students' idea and commended them on expanding their government education beyond the 1st semester course. Congratulations on a job well done!

Principal's Message

Here's a WARM welcome to the month of March!
With the amount of fallen snow in February and the number of days missed, we are ready to say goodbye to winter and hello to spring. March opens with Interim progress report distribution on Monday, March 2nd. This is the same night as Parent/Teacher Conferences that will be at the high school from 4-7 that evening. Directly after the conferences, the Winter Athletic Awards will be held in the Auditorium at 7 p.m.
The annual Volunteer-a-Thon event has been rescheduled for Saturday, March 7th from 11-2:30. This is an excellent opportunity for the students to outreach and help others in the community. While the Volunteer-a-Thon takes place, the Ring Dance sponsors and parents will begin to transform the gym into a beautiful "Enchanted Evening" for members of the junior class. The Ring Dance is truly a one-of-a-kind formal event and a Colonial Heights' tradition. The Ring Dance will be held on Saturday, March 14th.
Our middle and high school band programs will be competing for Virginia State Honor Band recognition on March 13th and 14th. We typically do quite well because the program is so fluid and strong. I know we are all looking forward to placing another year of accomplishments that are proudly reflected on a banner in our front hall.
On Tuesday, March 17th, schools across Virginia will be participating in a tornado drill at 9:45. The local authorities typically assist us with this drill to ensure that we are prepared should an issue arise. On that same day, the division will be celebrating its Fine Arts Festival at 6 p.m. at Colonial Heights High School. This is a great opportunity for the city to see beautiful pieces and creations by our smallest Rembrandts and our talented secondary artists. Performances will be held by our choir, color guard, drama, and band programs. It really is a unique night that is a pleasure to visit and see.
As we end the month and the weather cooperates and becomes bearable, I would really encourage you to come out to any of our spring events. There are events that match all spectator tastes--baseball, softball, soccer, tennis, and track. There will be many competitive games and matches for our community to enjoy!

Onward to Spring...

With Colonial Pride
