Many of you received new clothes for Christmas.  What will you do with your old jeans that you will no longer wear?

Please consider donating them to our school's Teens for Jeans project. Sponsored by Aeropostale, the Teens for Jeans program will give your used jeans to homeless people. Some of the over 1.5 million homeless teenagers in America will benefit from your donations. 

Please bring your old, clean jeans of any size to Mrs. Moody's, Ms. Hume's or Mrs. McBride's rooms between now and February 6.

Happy New Year!

    The high school returns from the holiday break on Monday, January 5th. We are rested and ready to roll right into 2015. January is a busy month with SOL review and SOL testing. SOL testing begins for students on Wednesday, January 7th. Please ask your student for his or her exact testing date schedule. Teachers will remind students to look over their review packets. They will also encourage students to enjoy a good night's rest and a hardy breakfast, so we are fully charged.

    First term ends in January, so it is imperative that students are present and prepared. We want to make sure we end the term strongly. Final exams will take place on Wednesday, January 22nd and Thursday, January 23rd. Exams are two hours in length. Exemption policies are listed in the student handbook and are linked to grades, attendance, and discipline records.

    Like academics, activities are in full swing. There are home wrestling, basketball, track, and swimming events to attend. Feel free to look over the activities calendar posted in the header section of the school's website to plan accordingly.

    On Wednesday, January 14th at 6:30 p.m., the Colonial Heights Education Foundation will celebrate students who have earned honor roll across the division. Elementary, middle, and high school students will be honored in the Jane Bryant Auditorium that evening. Students are recognized and attend a reception in the gym afterwards.
    We round out the month with a board meeting and the recognition of two great Seniors of the Month. The December and January students will be honored. I cannot think of a better way to end the month and start a New Year!

With Colonial Pride
