Thank a Teacher Artwork Contest

posted by Jude Raffeinner

All Students are encouraged to share their artwork.

Each year, the Virginia Lottery encourages students, parents and the general public to send thank-you notes to Virginia’s deserving public school teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week. In its first two years, Virginians distributed more than 70,000 thank-you notes as part of the Thank a Teacher campaign.

This year, we’re looking for three student artists to have their artwork featured on thousands of thank-you notes distributed across the state as part of our inaugural Thank a Teacher Art Contest. The contest is open to K-12 students enrolled in one of Virginia’s public schools, and one top-prize winner will be selected from each level: elementary school, middle school and high school. The three winners will not only get to see their artwork featured on the 2018 thank-you notes, they’ll also receive a $150 gift card and win $1,000 for their school’s art department.

Submissions will be accepted January 2 – February 2, 2018. For more information about the Thank a Teacher Art Contest including official rules, eligibility and entry requirements, visit www.ThankaTeacherVA.com.

And, keep an eye out for more information about our Thank a Teacher campaign returning for National Teacher Appreciation Week, May 7 – 11.

Parent Connect-"Promoting Family Wellness"

posted Oct 12, 2017, 12:17 PM by Web Admin

"Promoting Family Wellness" is the topic of the next Carroll County Parent Connect meeting, sponsored by Carroll County Public School Division (CCPSD). “We are very pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to our parents and staff. It will give education to parents on how to implement physical activity into everyday life and encourage a healthy lifestyle among our children," said CCPSD Licensed Professional Counselor, Denice Olinger.

According to The Association for Applied Sports Psychology, adopting physical activity habits early in life will increase the likelihood of children remaining physically active adults. Family physical activity can assist your child in learning life skills such as teamwork, leadership skills, and decision-making. Parents who display positive and healthier lifestyle choices influence the decisions and behaviors of their children. As reported by UC Davis Health, physically fit individuals are less likely to have heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and some types of cancer. People who exercise regularly have less feelings of depression and anxiety and feel a heightened sense of well-being. In general, families that incorporate exercise into their daily lives are happier, more relaxed and physically healthier.

The presenters will be Greg Hampton and Carrie Phipps with The Carroll Wellness Center. They will offer tips on how to eat smart, move more, and cope with stress. 

The Carroll County Parent Connect evening program will be at Carroll County Middle School on Thursday, October 26, 2017. A
free Aunt Bea's Barbeque meal will begin at 5:00 PM in the cafeteria. The program for parents, guardians, grandparents, and community members will begin at 6:00 PM. Reading For Life AmeriCorps members will be providing activities for children.
