Exciting Visit From Authors Richard and Kathy Verlander

posted Sep 17, 2018, 6:36 AM by Lenora Dean


Richard and Kathy Verlander are first and foremost proud parents. Parents who have a story to tell …. Their first book, “Rocks across the Pond” (2012) chronicles their life journey raising 2017 World Series Champion JUSTIN VERLANDER and his brother Ben, also a baseball star. Their newest release, “The Shelter Gang and Their Secret Adventure” is a children’s book about dogs, cats, and baseball. The story was inspired by the authors’ love for and advocacy of homeless animals and the wonderful people who care for them. It is a tale of hope, acceptance, perseverance and love.


THE VERLANDERS WILL BE MAKING A SPECIAL VISIT TO OUR SCHOOL ON SEPTEMBER 26th to meet with our students and teachers! If you would like for your student to have them autograph and personalize their own special copy please complete below and return to school no later than SEPTEMBER 21st!

New Morning and Afternoon Traffic Pattern

posted Sep 17, 2018, 6:28 AM by Lenora Dean   [ updated Sep 17, 2018, 6:29 AM ]

We are changing the traffic path for morning and afternoon parent drop off. Although we have improved greatly with our time of getting students dismissed, we are still backing up traffic and blocking parents and residents. This is going into effect to assist with getting 3 times the amount of vehicles onto school property and off of Gordon School Road. This is a safety issue for everyone involved. 

 With the help of Corporal PJ Cunniff from the Chesterfield County Police Department and our Child Safety Officer Holly Gorman, we came up with a new path. Several schools use this pattern including our feeder middle school, Midlothian Middle. New arrows will be painted on the blacktop in the coming week(s) depending on the weather. I was able to grab many of you yesterday afternoon and discuss the new plan and it sounds like everyone is excited! Please review this map and share with all who may need it. If you have any questions, please email me. Please try not to line up for morning arrival until 9:00 as many of our teachers are coming in for the day. As a reminder, afternoon dismissal starts at 3:55.
