Education Secretary Holton visits Harvie Elementary


Harvie Elementary School hosted Virginia Education Secretary Anne Holton Jan. 30. Holton toured the school, met with students and teachers and participated in a roundtable discussion with teachers.

Harvie is using a number of creative approaches in an effort to achieve full accreditation.

“The educators, parents, and students at Harvie Elementary are doing great things,” Holton said. “I was struck not only by the dedication of the staff, but by the innovative approach the teachers and administrators have taken to ensure student success.”

Entitled to success

Herb Monroe moves through the halls of Lakeside Elementary School with a purposeful gait and a soft but direct demeanor.

Around every corner is a student waiting for a hug or a high-five or a teacher with a piece of information to impart. He makes a pit stop to address fourth-graders in the cafeteria, checks in with a teacher about a student who needs extra help, then flashes a smile to a volunteer before poking his head into a boys’ restroom to make sure order is in place.

First Lady, Students ‘Get Active, Get Fit’

Virginia First Lady Maureen McDonnell visited Henrico’s Trevvett Elementary School Nov. 22 to champion the “Get Active. Get Fit” challenge, a youth and family-fitness program sponsored by Radio Disney and Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield that encourages active lifestyles in both children and adults.

The program included a school challenge from Oct. 4 through Nov. 28 designed to encourage children to exercise for at least 15 minutes per day for 40 out of 55 days. Prizes and reward parties will be awarded to schools that have the highest participation.

The teams sent their Lego robots into competition against others in the event hosted by the Deep Run Blue Cheese Robotics Team 1086, which annually competes in the high school FIRST Robotics Competition and FIRST Tech Challenge.
