High ‘hi’s at Twin Hickory E.S.
To reward students for Twin Hickory Elementary School's 100 percent PTA membership (meaning at least one parent of every student joined), Principal Mike Dussault spent the entire day of May 8 on the school roof. Throughout the day, each class in the school had the chance to go outside, greet the principal, and send up messages and gifts – including food and drinks, playing cards, paper airplanes, and the hat and sunglasses Dussault is wearing in the photo – using a bucket and rope.
Canoeing and kayaking enthusiasts soon will have a new access point to the Chickahominy River. VDOT, the James River Association and Henrico County Parks and Recreation are teaming up to establish a new site in Eastern Henrico.
The James River Association negotiated the deal with VDOT to procure official access to the area located just east of I-295 on North Airport Road in Sandston. The site includes a park-and-ride commuter lot bordering the Chickahominy River and has been an unofficial launch site used by paddlers for years. > Read more.
