  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

The month of May opens with the Senior Prom at John Tyler Community College and an After Prom activity at Colonial Heights High School. After Prom is a gift from the senior parents to the class. The After Prom parents have worked diligently over the last couple of years to provide a safe and enjoyable evening and morning for the kids.
May 4-8th marks National Teacher Appreciation week, and May 6-12th is National Nurse's Appreciation week. Our PTSO is treating our awesome staff with lunches during the week to show how much they are appreciated.
Writing of appreciation, I want to thank all of the parents, community partners, and students for their assistance with the AdvancED accreditation process. Our school and division did quite well and all of the hard work certainly paid off, so thank you.
As we round out May and hopefully move towards post-season athletic play, I would like to remind you about the upcoming AP and SOL testing. AP testing begins at the start of the month and SOL testing begins at the end of this month. Your student and teachers have been working together to get all of the material learned and known. Please remind your student to do his or her best. He or she should get a good night's sleep and havea solid breakfast before taking part in the tests. Most importantly, help us reassure your student that he or she has been well prepared and will do well.
Before you know it, I will be typing my final month's blog. It has been a great and productive year. Thank you!

With Colonial Pride
