  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

We have our official start to April and warm spring temperatures, I hope. This month is busy with activities and events. Our National BETA Club and National Honor Society chapters are hosting a staff appreciation breakfast on Thursday, April 2nd. Not only does the staff enjoy the fixings, but they really cannot be more grateful for the student support.
Writing of support, we had a very good turn-out during the first mandatory guardian/senior student graduation meeting. It is hard to believe that commencement ceremony meetings have begun, but they have. We have our second and final meeting opportunity on Monday, April 13th. If a senior is interested in walking in the commencement ceremony and the March 30th date was not attended, then he or she must attend this meeting with a parent. If there are questions, please have your student come to the main office and we will try to assist.
It is also challenging to believe that we will be welcoming our next group of rising freshmen on Friday, April 17th. The 8th graders will be visiting the high school and taking a tour with our Student Ambassadors. Prior to that, the school counseling and administrative team will visit the middle school on Tuesday, April 14th , to go over general requirements and overall course selections.
During the week of April 20th, the school division will be working with an accreditation team who will visiting campuses and seeing all of the wonderful things we do. Thank you in advance to the parents who have graciously accepted our invitations to be a part of our divisional accreditation process. We have a wonderful student-centered school and school division that I feel privileged serve.
A general reminder that Spring Break is early this year and will be held during the week of April 6th-April 10th. Please enjoy your time off, and we look forward to working with you and your student as we head toward the beginning of the last 9 weeks of the school year!

With Colonial Pride
