Hero Cards - Service Opportunity

posted Sep 22, 2017, 8:59 AM by Kelly Bisogno   [ updated Sep 22, 2017, 9:01 AM ]

We have an exciting opportunity for you! Often times, kids in foster care feel as though they lack encouragement from those around them, especially people their age. Come join us in creating Hero Cards for them on Friday, September 29th, during Rapid Time, in Mrs. Strittmatter's room, 1332. Passes are available on the whiteboard in the QUAD. Bring your favorite encouraging quote to create a gift to a kid in foster care. We will provide all art supplies and snacks! We appreciate your help in making them feel like heroes. Don’t forget to pick up your pass from the QUAD! This will be counted as Beta and NHS hours. If you have any questions, please contact Lauren Xue or Maisy Rhoades. Thank you and we hope to see you there!

We are excited to share Chesterfield County Public Schools’ digital literary magazine, the 2016 - 17 issue of Write Now! This 33rd edition showcases student writing and artwork submitted by students across the district in grades 6-12. All published writers who placed or received the Honorable Mention designation received certificates, and some received gold, silver, and bronze medals for winning first, second, and third place in grade-level categories for Poetry, Prose Fiction, and Prose Nonfiction.

Now anyone, including family members living across the country or across the world, can see the work of our students, and anyone can download or print a permanent copy. The software used, 3dIssue, makes our digital literary magazine accessible by computer, iPad, cell phone, or any other mobile device.

Title IX Announcement to Students
It is important for all individuals to understand that acts of gender‐based or sexual harassment or sexual assault against anyone at any time are not tolerated by Chesterfield County Public Schools. There are practices in place to help support you if you witness or are a victim of such actions. This is true at any time on school grounds or with any activity or event related to the school. 

It is everyone's responsibility to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner with others. It is also everyone's responsibility to report immediately to Mr. Ellick as the school’s Title IX Coordinator or to any other school administrator or school counselor, whenever anyone sees or suspects that another student has been a victim of sexual harassment or gender‐based harassment or sexual assault. 

Please join with us in helping to promote a safe and equitable school environment for all people.
