Currently at the Hermitage Technical Center, instructors are preparing to finish up the curriculum for the year and get students in the mindset for the upcoming school year.
HTC had several state SkillsUSA first-place winners in April. These students will compete nationally in Kansas City, Mo., in June.
The Crime Scene Investigation team of Dzenita Jasarevic, Kellie Jordan and Lyndsey Morris took first place at the state level.
For the IB juniors and seniors of Henrico High School, the past couple of weeks have been a combination of panic and catharsis. It is IB exam season.
IB exams are designed to test everything we should have learned in our years in the Diploma Program. The standard level courses test one year’s worth of knowledge and understanding, whereas the higher level courses test two years’ worth.
May will be a very important month for many of the John Rolfe Middle School students, faculty and staff.
Starting May 22, we will begin our SOL tests. Pull-out tutoring, after-school tutoring, and in-class tutoring will be continuing, and we have started our “Super Saturdays” tutoring sessions as well. They allow the students who need help in a specific subject to get the help they need and also allow students to get structured study time, complete their missing work and improve their grades.
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.
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.
Holman Middle School is where the tradition of excellence begins and continues to grow. In March, there were many opportunities to be involved in Holman’s fundraisers and events.
Drama: Holman’s school play is an annual event that is a must-see! This year, March 8-10, students, with the help of Mrs. Neely and Ms. Sabalis, put on the show, Charlotte’s Web.
The Henrico Warriors basketball team is amazing. On March 8, more than 7,000 people filled the Siegel Center to watch the Warriors win the state championship.
Starting March 4, the day of the semifinal game, the spirit at Henrico High School was through the roof. Even the trees around campus were decked out in green and gold streamers. The students were given early dismissal in order to go watch and cheer at the semi-finals game. And cheer they did. Students and teachers alike were proudly wearing their green and gold.
