The Steward School was one of four schools in Virginia and one of 58 schools in the United States named a Green Ribbon School this week by the U.S. Department of Education.
The schools were honored for their efforts to reduce environmental impact and utility costs, promote better health and ensure effective environmental education, including civics and green career pathways. Nine colleges and universities also were honored with the Postsecondary Sustainability Award.
Returning from spring break, many students at Hermitage Tech were eager to finish this year with good grades.
However, many students will be surprised to realize that their grades have dropped because they have not been wearing the appropriate safety attire in the labs and classrooms.
The week of March 25 saw the walkways of Henrico High School lined with flags from the countries of the world. That could only mean one thing: it was Foreign Language Week.
Foreign Language Week is an annual tradition at HHS, and it is one of the most fun weeks of the school year. There are a number of activities in which students may partake.

A student at JR Tucker High School has organized a school supply and book drive to assist the schools in West, Texas, that were affected by last week's fertilizer plant explosion there. The blast damaged or destroyed three of the town's four schools and materials, which cannot be used.
Tucker student Shane Powers is encouraging members of the public to contribute school supplies and gently used, or new, books to the effort by dropping them off at the front office at Tucker.

Henrico County Public Schools officials this month released the names of the finalists for its Gilman Teacher of the Year and The First-Year Teacher of the Year awards. The Gilman finalists are: Fairfield District – Jimmi Dineen Fender (Henrico High); Three Chopt District – Deborah D'Allessandro (Pocahontas Middle); Tuckahoe District – Jaime Kegley (Maybeury Elementary); Brookland District – Taylor Snow (Moody Middle); Varina District – Kelly Ostrom (Varina High).
Currently, Hermitage Technical center is trying to pick a date to induct the first members of our chapter of the National Technical Honor Society. This organization is the career and technical education version of The National Honor Society (NHS). The induction was originally set for March 23, but an unexpected snow day came our way, and postponed the ceremony.
Fitness is a priority in all Henrico County Schools. In middle school, students are required to take PE classes. Every season, different competitive sports opportunities are offered. TMS also provides opportunities for intramural sports, and the faculty promotes fitness during their staff development days. Fitness was the theme for the last staff development day when teachers competed in basketball, biking, rowing, and coordination exercises to learn about teamwork.
