CHPS gives back to the community through Volunteer-a-thon event
COLONIAL HEIGHTS - Over 300 Colonial Heights Public Schools (CHPS) high school, middle school, and elementary school students, CHPS staff members, soldiers from Fort Lee, and others gathered at Colonial Heights High School (CHHS) on Saturday for the eighth annual Volunteer-a-thon event.

During Volunteer-a-thon, participants dedicate three hours to giving back to the local community and those in need internationally through various activities set up in different classrooms.

Activities included making pillowcase dresses to be sent to Haiti, painting "kindness" rocks to be placed around the school grounds, making dog toys to be donated to the animal shelter, playing online games to benefit the hungry, making inspirational cards for patients at the children's hospital, decorating pillowcases to be sent to Camp Dreamcatchers, serving soup, baked potatoes and dessert to benefit needy students at CHHS, making Alzheimer's fidget mats for residents at the Dunlop House, making capes for kids in shelters, braiding bracelets for children at St. Jude Children's Hospital, and making "thank you" cards for teachers. A large group of students also participated in the Rise Against Hunger organization's assembly line, which packaged over 10,000 meals for people in Sub-Saharan Africa.

The division-wide event even got middle and elementary school students involved, as a classroom full of middle schoolers made "character" bracelets to distribute to fellow CHMS students, and elementary school students created crafts for Dunlop House residents.

Kristin Crowder, a Gifted Coordinator at CHHS and an organizer of Volunteer-a-thon, notes that while the purpose of the event is to positively impact those in need within the community, the impact the event has on the student and staff volunteers is immense as well.

"The Volunteer-a-thon impacts many people on different levels," she said. "It obviously helps the individuals and groups that receive the items we create, but just as importantly, it teaches students that volunteering is fun and rewarding.

"We hope they will use it as a springboard and continue to volunteer on their own," she added. "One of my favorite parts of the Volunteer-a-thon is the effect of teachers volunteering beside their students and vice versa… they are working on the same team and it is yet another way they can connect with each other."

Principal's Message

   February has come to an end and it is time to MARCH right into the next month. This busy month that will eventually lead us into Spring Break. We celebrate Ring Dance on Saturday, March 16th. This is a Colonial Heights' tradition where the parents transform the gym into this year's theme of "Shabby Chic." If you have no idea what that is, think about the show "Fixer Upper."

   The spring sports season is in full swing. The spring sportsmanship meeting was held on February 28th. DSA Gerald Carsley emphasized how imperative it is that Colonial athletes and fans display good fellowship and spirit at all school events.

   We put a period on the winter sports season with our athletic awards on Monday, March 4th at 7:00 PM in the Jane Bryant Auditorium. That same night was our Parent/Teacher conferences from 4-7 PM. It is a long night, but we welcomed the opportunity to have professional dialogue with parents. The staff was also spoiled by our PTSO with a lovely meal.

   The Fine Arts festival takes place on Tuesday, March 19th at 6:00 PM. It is a great community event where we can see the talents of band, drama, art, and choir students across the division.

   It is challenging to believe that CHHS administration will be holding its first mandatory graduation meeting for seniors and their parents on Monday, March 25th at 6:30. If you have graduation goodies to pick up from Herff Jones, I would arrive between 5:45 and 6:00. This is the first of two dates. The other meeting is Monday, April 8th at the same time. One of the meetings must be attended.

   The month ends the third nine weeks. We have had a productive second term. There are so many accomplishments including a national DECA run, tennis court ribbon cutting ceremony, honor band recognition, choir assessments, Staff Member of the Year naming-Lolita Smith, Teacher of the Year naming-Christy Major, and a scholastic bowl run.

   Here's to another great nine weeks.

   Let's continue working hard.

   With Pride,
