Henrico School Board selects redistricting Option E


JUNE 23, 10:30 A.M. – The Henrico County School Board Thursday concluded its latest redistricting process by selecting a plan for middle school redistricting that will impact a number of students in the western and northern parts of the county, as well as a few in Eastern Henrico.

The process sought to reduce overcrowding at Hungary Creek Middle School, create room at Wilder Middle School for a gifted academy and address the poverty level disparity among some middle schools. It will impact about 775 students, according to school system officials.

A prize with a purse

Each year, the Tucker principal selects a history teacher to receive the award, which is accompanied by $300 to use as the teacher wishes. Pederson's wife, Sharon, says she established the fund to show support for teachers and has built the fund over the years with contributions from friends and family. "So far as we know," she said, "it is the only gift of its kind for teachers in the area."

A garden grows


More than 30 fourth- and fifth-grade students from the Three Chopt Elementary Gifted Zone Center volunteered their time June 6 at the Virginia Home for Boys and Girls as part of a community service project.

The project was the culmination of a first-time assignment that Gifted Zone Center teachers Brettany Bailey, Kasey Kolste and Catherine Kelly created for their students this year. They required the more than 70 students from their three classes (one fourth-grade and two fifth-grade) to complete a community service research project focused on various local organizations. Each student then demonstrated – through persuasive presentations and essays that highlighted an organization – the groups for which they wanted to volunteer. Fellow students and teachers then conducted a series of votes to select one organization that the students would support, and fourth-grader Greta Shope’s project on VHBG was chosen.

Project SEARCH graduates receive diplomas


Bon Secours Virginia Health System recently recognized and awarded diplomas to 25 Virginia high school seniors with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and/or intellectual disabilities for their completion of Project SEARCH, a nine-month national school-to-work program, at four Bon Secours facilities in Central Virginia and in Portsmouth. Project SEARCH provides hands-on training to students with disabilities through internships at health care facilities and other businesses, with a goal of gaining employment upon completion. Bon Secours Virginia is the only Project SEARCH program also participating in clinical research.

The Project SEARCH program began at St. Mary's Hospital in Henrico and has since expanded to three other sites.

Fire, Police, Sheriff’s office host Marine Corps-JROTC leadership camp and field games


More than 50 Marine Corps JROTC cadets from Henrico County public schools learned what it takes to be a public safety official in the county this week. The teens participated in the inaugural Marine Corps-JROTC leadership camp and field games, hosted by the Henrico Sheriff's Office, Division of Police and Division of Fire.

Fifty-three cadets spent a day with each of the agencies, immersing themselves in hands-on scenarios of tactical maneuvers, simulations and physical training activities that firefighters, police officers and sheriff's deputies perform as part of their regular duties.
