School briefs - Rolfe Middle School

February was a huge month for John Rolfe Middle School with numerous student events.

In the middle of February, students had an assembly for the John Rolfe PTA Spring fundraiser. We had a fundraiser exactly like this back in December. Students gathered in the auditorium to listen to our guest speaker. The fundraiser is to sell various magazines about jewelry, cooking, games and even dessert. You name it, we probably have it! There are different things you get when you sell a certain number of magazines, but the cool thing is one magazine counts as two!

In honor of Youth Art Month, the art department is celebrating Andy Warhol, an American artist that was a leading figure in the visual art movement. The department is also holding a canned food drive for the Richmond Food Bank. You have to come to school and put the cans in your classroom’s food box. The class with the most cans will have a breakfast party on March 22, on behalf of the art department. All donations are due by March 29.

Congratulations to John Rolfe’s "Teacher of the Year" nominee, Ms. Denise Beeman! She is a sixth-grade social studies teacher and department chair. Mr. Kawaune Rawlings, a health and P.E. teacher and head basketball coach, is our "First Year Teacher of the Year." John Rolfe’s Christie Award nominee goes to Ms. Tess Short, our school counseling director. This nomination was for staff who worked with our students with disabilities.
